Former Secretary of State George P. Shultz and former Stanford Professor Emeritus Henry Rowen discuss foreign policy and national security, particularly the organizational question of the proper roles of the State Department and the White House in running U.S. foreign policy.
Shultz begins by detailing his experiences at the State Department and how they worked inter-departmentally with other areas of the government. The discussion then moves on to individual people and their roles within the administration at the time. Shultz continues to expand upon how the government grooms candidates for positions who end up in various companies outside the government before they reach their prime in government work.
From the State Department to the National Security Council and the Office of Management and Budget, follow the personal stories of how our government operates with George Shultz.
