The United States seems to have retreated from the geopolitical front in recent years. While members of a panel of international relations experts diverge on what will be the most pressing diplomatic issues in the years ahead, all concur that the future will be “a lot more dangerous if America isn’t engaged and involved.” Despite the discussion’s Western slant, getAbstract believes this intelligent, at times droll, debate among global influencers will excite politicians, environmentalists, economists, global strategists and futurists.

- How the United States ought to behave in the international arena.
