An Auspicious Anniversary for the Marshall Plan

Writing in Foreign Policy, Jason Bordoff argues that today’s 70th anniversary of the Marshall Plan serves as a reminder of the importance of a strong transatlantic alliance at a time when the relationship between the U.S. and Europe has been strained by the Trump Administration’s withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement, refusal to endorse NATO’s guarantee of mutual defense, and rejection of international trade agreements. Energy, in particular, is a key area for U.S.-European cooperation and a notable example of how the United States is better off when it is integrated into a global community rather than isolated.

Modernizing the International Energy Agency: A Task Worthy of US Leadership

Jonathan Elkind

In the run up to the November 2017 International Energy Agency (IEA) ministerial meeting in Paris, Jonathan Elkind, a Fellow at the Center on Global Energy Policy, writes on the importance of the new U.S. Administration to lead the charge in modernizing the IEA. Despite criticism from President Trump about the efficacy of international organizations and his championing of an “America First” energy policy, Elkind urges the president and his team to not waste an opportunity to invest wisely in an institution that has not only served the United States and its partners well for more than forty years, but has great potential to continue to do so in the next forty.
