Clyde Prestowitz, founder and President of the Economic Strategy Institute, will discuss how new technology, climate change, the financial crisis and China are leading to deglobalization and why that could be good for America.

Under his leadership ESI has been propelled into an important role in the public policy process, influencing and often defining the terms of the debate in the areas of international trade policy, economic competitiveness, and the effects of globalization. Mr. Prestowitz has played key roles in achieving congressional passage of NAFTA and in shaping the final content of the Uruguay Round, as well as providing the intellectual basis for current U.S. trade policies toward Japan, China, and Korea.

Prior to founding ESI, Mr. Prestowitz served as counselor to the Secretary of Commerce in the Reagan Administration. There, he led many U.S. trade and investment negotiations with Japan, China, Latin America, and Europe. Before joining the Commerce Department, he was a senior businessman in the United States, Europe, Japan, and throughout Asia and Latin America. He has served as vice chairman of the President’s Committee on Trade and Investment in the Pacific and sits on the Intel Policy Advisory Board and the U.S. Export-Import Bank Advisory Board.

Clyde Prestowitz regularly writes for leading publications, including the New York Times, the Washington Post, Fortune, and Foreign Affairs. He is the author of the best-selling book on U.S.-Japan relations, Trading Places. His latest book, The Betrayal of American Prosperity: Free Market Delusions, America’s Decline, and How We Must Compete in the Post-Dollar Era, addresses how we can restore our economic leadership and excellence.

  • Commentary on Prestowitz: The New York Times has called Prestowitz one of the most far-seeing forecasters of global trends. He was among the very first to warn of the approach of the recent economic crisis, the decline of the dollar, and the dangers of the global trade imbalances.

A Delaware native, Clyde is the brother of UrbanPromise Executive Director, Rob Prestowitz.
