The US middle class and foreign policy: democracy’s new dance

I wanted to push a little deeper on the question of how (or even why) US foreign policy should be more in sync with the middle class.

So I’ve recorded a podcast that discusses this potential new direction in US democracy – the effort, however early, to ensure that US foreign policy goals support working families. This is an idea US President Joe Biden mentioned in his foreign policy speech on February 4.

In my podcast, I mention the report by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace from 2020, which can be found here.

Also, the 2018 World Unpacked podcast, also by CEIP, hosted by Jen Psaki in which CEIP’s Salman Ahmed discusses his findings from visiting Ohio, can be found here.

Both the report and podcast are well worth digging into, especially as the ideas appear to be shaping Biden’s approach.
