This blog looks at U.S. foreign and domestic policy using multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural perspectives, as well as good humor.

Effective solutions, we believe, will come from multiple sources, often beyond those that are readily available to us. As Mark Twain put it” If you don’t read the newspaper you are uninformed, if you do read the newspaper you are misinformed”.

We continue to meet incredible, committed and wise people from all walks of life during our work and adventures around the world. Sharing their efforts and their inimitable knowledge with a wider audience, we feel, can help bring fresh perspectives on the range of solutions for some of the US’s most pressing issues at home and internationally.

We aim to contribute to a well-informed debate, serve as a resource to policy-makers, and facilitate discussion amongst colleagues.
