The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher. In this video, members explain why CFR is a trusted and indispensable resource.
when i look at the trajectory of the 21st cent.. we don’t have the luxury of nuclear proliferation or climate or terrorism or anything else that going to be the next existential threat.. it’s going to be a crowded agenda.. – Richard Haass (President, Council on Foreign Relations)
begs we leap..for (blank)’s sake
what we want to do is *start a convo .. about the need to be better **prepared for the world they’re about to enter – Richard Haass
*convo is good.. let’s start with 2 convos
cfr makes foreign policy very accessible – Angelina Jolie @angeelinajoiie
to get to truth.. want to hear from people who are marinating in that environment.. everyday.. Richard Plepler
at the council you essentially have every type of foreign policy expertise imaginable.. all in one place – Jared Cohen @JaredCohen
read headlines.. newspapers.. but then want to go deeper.. one of my go to resources of course is cfr – Fareed Zakaria
*pertinent to what we cover on a daily basis.. i don’t think you can get better **quality of conversations and expertise as you do here at cfr – Bianna Golodryga
keep saying best place.. like ie: silicon valley often does.. school often does.. whatever..
the connectors that come into that council .. and then take *that info out and disseminate it.. that’s a breathtaking thing – Richard Plepler
the council works is so grounded in works that are happening in the world.. *w/o an agenda.. – Juliette Kayyem
we don’t take *institutional positions here.. we don’t **take money from govts.. we want our ideas.. what it is we say/write.. to simply be judged on their merits – Richard Haass
isn’t the process of **taking money.. ie: depending on it.. assuming it.. *institutional..?
this policy relevant space.. that’s both intellectually solid but still applied/connected to reality..that’s the sweet spot we try to operate in– Richard Haass
adding page because of this:
40% US jobs at risk from automation; time to stop blaming trade, immigration & get serious re life-long ed/training pwc.co.uk/economic-servi…
link is to uk econ outlook (mar 2017) –
Special features on: • Consumer spending prospects after Brexit • Will robots steal our jobs? The potential impact of automation on the UK and other major economies
Good sentiment. I’m all for lifelong learning. But decades of programs and research make it clear. Training/ed does not solve issue at all.
Solid finding: adult ed/training does not result in better wages or jobs at scale. Issue is lack of jobs to feasibly train for as an adult.
Here’s a book summarizing decades of research up till 2000s. Solid finding since, too. Training is not a solution. amazon.com/Training-Chara…
but also no .. earn a living ness
By all means, let’s encourage lifelong learning. Many benefits. For few, it may lead to better jobs. It just doesn’t work for jobs at scale.
because Angelina was in video above..also prompted adding page..
others in film: Jared and Richard (original tweet above)
