U.S. Trade and Investment Policy by Council on Foreign Relations( )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most effective ways to create good new jobs and reverse the income decline of the past decade is for the United States to "become a thriving trading nation," concludes a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)-sponsored Independent Task Force report on U.S. Trade and Investment Policy. The report calls for the Obama administration and Congress to "adopt a pro-America trade policy that brings to more Americans more of the benefits of global engagement, within the framework of a strengthened, rules-based trading system." The growth of global trade and investment has brought significant benefits to the United States and to the rest of the world. But U.S. leadership on international trade has waned in recent years because of deep domestic political divisions over trade policy that arise largely from the very real economic difficulties too many Americans face, acknowledges the Task Force. The Task Force warns that the political stalemate "has already harmed U.S. interests and will do more if it remains unresolved. Unless the United States develops and sustains a trade policy that yields greater benefits for Americans in job and wage growth, it will be difficult to build the political consensus needed to move forward," says the report

How America stacks up : economic competitiveness and U.S. policy by Edward H Alden( )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

American leadership in the world is built on the foundation of its economic strength. Yet the United States faces enormous economic competition abroad and threats to its economy at home. In How America Stacks Up: Economic Competitiveness and U.S. Policy, Edward Alden, Bernard L. Schwartz senior fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations and director of the Renewing America initiative, and Rebecca Strauss, associate director of Renewing America, focus on those areas of economic policy that are the most important for reinforcing America's competitive strengths
Failure to adjust : how Americans got left behind in the global economy by Edward H Alden( Book )

14 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans know that something has gone wrong in this country's effort to prosper in the face of growing global economic competition. The vast benefits promised by the supporters of globalization, and by their own government, have never materialized for most Americans. This book is the story of what went wrong, and how to correct the course. It is a compelling history of the last four decades of US economic and trade policies that have left Americans unable to adapt to or compete in the current global marketplace. Failure to Adjust argues that, despite the deep partisan divisions over how best to respond to America's competitive challenges, there is achievable common ground on such issues as fostering innovation, overhauling tax rules to encourage investment in the United States, boosting graduation rates, investing in infrastructure, and streamlining regulations. The federal government needs to become more like US state governments in embracing economic competitiveness as a central function of government. This book presents an especially timely analysis of the trade policies of the Obama administration and discusses how America can reassert itself as a leader in setting rules for international economic competition that would spread the benefits of global trade and investment more broadly."--Inside jacket flap
Managing illegal immigration to the United States : how effective is enforcement? by Bryan R Roberts( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors examine U.S. efforts to prevent illegal immigration to the United States. Although the United States has witnessed a sharp drop in illegal border crossings in the past decade alongside an enormous increase in government activities to prevent illegal immigration, there remains little understanding of the role enforcement has played. Better data and analyses to assist lawmakers in crafting more successful policies and to support administration officials in implementing these policies are long overdue
U.S. Immigration Policy by Council on Foreign Relations( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The goal of the Independent Task Force on U.S. Immigration Policy was to examine this complex issue and craft a nuanced strategy for reforming immigration policies and practices. The Task Force report argues that immigration is vital to the long-term prosperity and security of the United States. In the global competition to attract highly talented immigrants, the United States must ensure that it remains the destination of first choice. The report also finds that immigrants, who bring needed language and cultural skills, are an increasingly important asset for the U.S. armed forces. What is more, allowing people to come to this country to visit, study, or work is one of the surest means to build friendships with future generations of foreign leaders and to show America's best face to the world. The Task Force report recommends that Congress and the administration launch a new effort to pass comprehensive immigration reform legislation, built around a grand bargain with three elements: improvements to the legal immigration system so that it functions more efficiently to attract and retain talented and ambitious immigrants, a robust enforcement regime that secures America's borders and strongly discourages employers from hiring illegal workers, and a program of legalization that will allow many of those already living in the United States illegally to earn the right to remain. The report calls for new measures to bring in the best foreign students by removing many of the quotas and other roadblocks currently in place."--Taken from foreword

The work ahead : machines, skills, and U.S. leadership in the twenty-first century( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of work is undergoing a fundamental shift, one largely brought about by new technologies including but not limited to arti cial intelligence, robotics, and autonomous vehicles. In the pro- cess, jobs will be both eliminated and created. For the United States, this is something of a mixed blessing. With the world's most innovative economy, the country is well positioned to exploit (in the best sense) the promise of new technologies and their applications. At the same time, it is painfully clear that American society is ill prepared for this technological transformation because educational opportunity and attainment vary widely and work is the basis for much of a citizen's income, bene ts, and, in many cases, self-esteem. The report of this Independent Task Force rightly focuses on the need to rebuild the links among work, opportunity, and economic secu- rity for Americans. It puts forward a number of policy prescriptions for government, business, educators, and nongovernmental institutions. Americans will need to reimagine their careers; the average worker will know over a dozen separate jobs during his or her lifetime. Citizens will also need to rethink education, jettisoning the notion of education as something largely completed before they enter the work- force. Instead, lifelong learning and periodic retraining will become the new normal. And Americans, together with government at every level, will need to restructure the relationship between jobs and bene ts
