This lecture is part of a series on Economics and Foreign Policy sponsored by the Charles Koch Foundation.

While it is clear that economic and financial issues can have an important impact on U.S. national security, there is little discussion of these topics in academia or the policy world.

Dr. Glancy’s lecture will focus on why national security leaders and academics need to focus more on this important topic. He will discuss threats and vulnerabilities to our economic and financial systems and responses to these risks. Dr. Glancy will also examine how the U.S. can use economic and financial elements of statecraft to advance its foreign policy and national security goals.
