Remember global supply chains? The pandemic hit, and then suddenly the backstage became the frontstage. The systems that undergirded global trade faltered in the medical emergencies and then during the following shifts in demand. The Biden Administration’s new approach to international trade – and the actions being taken or considered by other countries – could have profound effects on globalization. Will these developments be good or bad for our future prosperity?
Bill was an intelligence officer for the US Air Force, serving on active duty from 1969 until 1999, much of that time overseas. He grew up in Virginia and received a bachelor’s degree in politics from Princeton University and a master’s degree in foreign affairs from the University of Virginia. Bill lives year-round on Peaks Island with his wife, Nancy. He’s the immediate past president of the World Affairs Council of Maine and serves on the boards of several Maine nonprofit organizations.
