Cleaning Up Obama's Strategic Mess

America's next president needs a "gap" strategy.

A Global Economic-Freedom Agenda

To really get back in the power game, America needs robust, long-term economic growth that can fund guns and butter. That means removing the shackles that constrain economic freedom here at home and promoting an economic-freedom agenda abroad.

That’s a challenging to-do list for the next president. But it adds up to a strategy that will leave no one doubting that America is back in the game.

James Jay Carafano is a Heritage Foundation vice president and director of its Davis Institute for Foreign and National Security Policy Studies.
