WACA COVER to COVER: 

Offered as a benefit to all current WACA Member Councils, Cover to Cover conference calls are opportunities for Council leaders, members, and supporters to engage with esteemed authors on critical issues. Cover to Cover authors often welcome invitations to speak at Councils. In short, the WACA National Office covers a topic with an expert so that Councils may discover a speaker and cover the topic in even greater depth in their own communities, spearheading a national conversation.
 
MAY 11 ~ 2-3 PM Cover to Cover
C2CauthorMayC. Fred Bergsten is the Nonresident Senior Fellow and Director Emeritus at the Peterson Institute for International Economics. He was economic deputy to Dr. Henry Kissinger at the National Security Council, Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury for International Affairs, Chairman of APEC’s Eminent Persons Group and of the Competitiveness Policy Council chartered by the US Congress, and a member of the President’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations for 10 years.
 
On May 11 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM ET, C. Fred Bergsten will speak about his new book, The United States vs. China. His book is the first to analyze the U.S.-China rivalry from the perspective of global economic leadership. Unlike other commentators, Bergsten sees reasons to be optimistic about future U.S.-China economic relations. He identifies ways in which both countries can lead, rather than destroy, the world economy.
