A World in Disarray
Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council
The world is entering an age of disarray, argues Richard Haass. Globalization, climate change, and new technologies are challenging nation-states and eroding the foundations of global order. As power is diffused, and non-state entities grow in influence, the ability of governments to protect and govern their populations is being severely tested.

Seminary Co-Op Bookstore, Chicago IL
Seminary Co-op Bookstore
Franklin I. Gamwell holds that democracy with religious freedom is dependent on metaphysical theism. Democratic politics can be neutral to all religious convictions only if its constitution establishes a full and free discourse about the ultimate terms of justice and their application to decisions of the state, and the divine good is the true ground of justice. Notably, Gamwell’s view challenges virtually all current accounts of democracy with religious freedom.

Chicago Council on Global Affairs, Chicago IL
Chicago Council

David Smick argues that policy has favored the corporate status quo for a long time, stifling entrepreneurship and innovation—and hollowing out the working and middle classes, thus making their American Dream increasingly unattainable. He calls for a ‘great equalizer’—a new paradigm and bipartisan reforms to unleash America’s potential and level the playing field. What must we do to create an economy for everyone?
