Download audio (MP3)


Between a nuclear Iran, climate change, and a rising China, the challenges to U.S national security are manifold. But in his new book, "Foreign Policy Begins at Home," Council on Foreign Relations president Richard Haass argues that the largest threats to this country come from within. With second-rate schools, a decrepit infrastructure, and growing debt, Haass writes, America should focus on improving itself.

Host: Michael Krasny


  • Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, and author of "Foreign Policy Begins at Home: The Case for Putting America's House in Order"
