America has surmounted "impossible" challenges before.
Let's talk about how we can do it again.
You're invited to a live, national teleforum with


to discuss


September 16th, 2011

2 PM E.S.T. / 11 AM P.S.T.

Last November President Obama said, "It makes no sense for China to have better rail systems than us, and Singapore having better airports than us. And we just learned that China now has the fastest supercomputer on Earth - that used to be us."

Thomas L. Friedman, #1 New York Times bestselling author and three-time Pulitzer Prize winner, and Michael Mandelbaum, director of the American Foreign Policy Program at Johns Hopkins, recognize America has a huge problem. It faces four major challenges, on which its future depends, and it is failing to meet them.

In That Used to Be Us, Friedman and Mandelbaum analyze those challenges - globalization, the revolution in information technology, the nation's chronic deficits, and its pattern of energy consumption - and spell out what we need to do now to rediscover America and rise to this moment.

Join the national debate on Sept. 16th through a live teleforum with the authors. You'll be able to ask questions, vote for your favored solutions, and make your voice heard.

The teleforum is free and exists entirely over the phone - no computer needed.
