15th YES Annual Meeting: the headlines from day one

Seems pretty Anti-Trumpish, to me.

Panel Members: Michael McFaul, Larry Summers, Condoleezza Rice.

“The US Founding Fathers – and this will be a good lesson to young democrats in Ukraine – were very cautious about the executive power.”

Condoleezza Rice, 66th US Secretary of State, 2005-2009

“The current US administration has made a strategic mistake in lowering corporation tax, instead of encouraging the global community to come together to agree a an internationally recognised tax system that would not force the race to the bottom.”

Larry Summers, Charles W Eliot University, Professor, Harvard University

Condoleezza Rice, 66th US Secretary of State, 2005-2009 quote: ?

“We haven’t frightened ourselves enough yet (with the use of cyberwarfare) to come up with an international accord, as we did in the case of nuclear.”

Tony Blair, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, 1997-2005, quote:

“Now that we see the Brexit promises will not be delivered, the sensible thing to do is to put the question back to the electorate, revoke Article 50 and not leave the EU at all”.

“In the next ten years we will be faced with three giants, India, CHina, and the US, and it will be better for medium sized companies to stick together. The EU is now less about peace and more about power”.
