Person InterviewedRumsfeld, Donald
Host Peter Krogh discusses the role of business in U.S. foreign policy with Donald Rumsfeld.
At the time of this broadcast, former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld was serving as Chef Executive officer for pharmaceutical company G.D. Searle and Co., and had already served as President Ford’s Secretary of Defense. In this episode, Moderator Peter Krogh interviews Rumsfeld on the role of business in U.S. foreign policy. The mid-80’s brought many questions on how to handle economic relations with South Africa, the Soviet Union, and a broader socialist ideology. While voicing concerns about protecting security in a porous international marketplace, Rumsfeld calls on the market to rely on itself for correcting high food prices, choosing foreign relationships, and closing the gap between rich and poor. While the fear of a socialist ideology has changed to different concerns, questions on the role of business in U.S. foreign policy continue to demand attention.
