A conversation with journalist Theodore White
Krogh, Peter F. (Peter Frederic)
White, Theodore H.
Host Peter Krogh and Theodore White discuss U.S. foreign policy.
Less than a month before his death, journalist and historian Theodore White discusses the Reagan presidency and economic competition with moderator Peter Krogh. White assesses the then current reality on foreign affairs as not a struggle between two great powers, the United States and the Soviet Union, but between four to five powers. These include Japan, and China. With a population boom and growing technological advancements, China became a clear growing economic threat. Japan, spurred by it’s lack of natural resources and its impressive endowment of human capitol, created a trade offensive against the United States, wiping out major production centers. White identifies the greatest shifts in foreign relations in his fifty years of experience can be attributed to the development of the atomic bomb, the rise of new centers of power, and global migration to America. Throughout this episode, White discusses concerns he has about America’s future that are relevant today.
