america_in_retreat_logo_short

When the U.S. assumed the PAX, it assumed responsibility for global order, but for how long? Just how deeply entangled should America be in the world’s affairs? What alternatives are there to being the world’s policemen? Is there really a downside to retreat? And in the absence of the U.S., how might global order be maintained – or decimated?  In a companion documentary to America in Retreat by Wall Street Journal’s Pulitzer Prize winning columnist Bret Stephens, Free To Choose Executive Editor and Cato Senior Fellow Johan Norberg examines the questions facing a nation leaning back toward isolationism.
