Harvard political scientist Joseph Nye famously wrote that "smart power is neither hard nor soft. It is both." We talk to Nye about how the U.S. can most effectively wield its power in the world's changing political landscape. We'll also hear his views on the Trump administration's decision to intervene militarily in Syria, the North Korean nuclear threat and what could be ahead for U.S.-Russia relations.

Guests:

Joseph Nye, University Distinguished Service Professor and former dean, Harvard's Kennedy School of Government
