Renewing America

The success of U.S. foreign policies depends on strengthening the United States’ economic competitiveness at home. Domestic problems of sluggish growth, persistent unemployment, substandard and aging infrastructure, failing educational institutions, counterproductive immigration policies, and deep political divides all threaten not only domestic prosperity and opportunity but also U.S. power abroad. CFR’s Renewing America initiative shines a spotlight on the domestic underpinnings of U.S. competitiveness to find ways to bolster U.S. international strength and influence.     This project is made possible by the generous support of the Bernard and Irene Schwartz Foundation.
