In today’s rapidly globalizing world, economic policy is the main challenge for the United States.  It is only economics that has a chance to really harm the standing of the United States in the world.

Economics can hurt us both at home and abroad.  If inequality keeps growing and our economy keeps stagnating, it could lead to unrest and instability at home.  If our economy continues to lose power we would also become less important in the world as a whole.  We would lose much of our ability to influence other countries.

Economics can hurt us at home and abroad and is therefore the biggest challenge to our country.
