This audio recording is the third in a series of forums held at The New School to explore the process and future of legislative action in Congress. Professor Robert Lekachman of the State University of New York, Stony Brook speaks at 7:21 on American business investments in the Middle East and other countries and the influence of commercial interests on American foreign policy. Vice President and Controller for Dunn and Bradstreet William Francis Ward speaks in defense of American investment abroad and concern that war and terrorism will decrease the willingness of American business to invest in high-risk environments. Professor Hans Morgenthau of University of Chicago and the City University of New York speaks at 47:10, arguing that American business interests are tangential to U.S. foreign policy and the relationship is not borne out by evidence. United States Representative Henry Helstoski speaks at 1:04:16 on protectionism, the Cold War, the interest equalization tax, right to work laws, and the role of the U.S. government in promoting foreign trade.
