I believe the most important thing Americans must do is to secure their economic well-being in an increasingly challenging, complex world. What I have written about all these years is the process of creating wealth, not for any one individual, but for the United States as a whole. Ever since I was a young correspondent witnessing the emergence of China after the country opened in 1979, I’ve believed we have to get more serious about creating wealth. I retain faith in the resiliency of the U.S. economy and the enterprise of American people. If Americans have the right strategies, we can once again create widespread wealth.

Look out the windows, boys and girls at Exxon Mobil headquarters in Houston. Mother Nature may be trying to send you a message! Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city, is arguably the capital of the American energy industry, which has argued that climate change is just a theory that scientists cannot establish beyond a shadow […]
Trump and the CEOs: The Real Message
August 21, 2017
After contemplating all the analysis of the fall-out between President Trump and leading American chief executive officers, I don’t think one message has been well-communicated: CEOs are committed to a pluralistic vision of America’s future because that’s what makes the most sense from a profit point of view.
