The Economic Element of National Power: "…Economic Security is National Security”  
Organized by :  The Institute for National Strategic Studies
24-25 August, 2010

   ". . we must renew the foundation of America’s strength. In the long run, the welfare of the American people will determine America’s strength in the world, particularly at a time when our own economy is inextricably linked to the global economy. Our prosperity serves as a wellspring for our power. It pays for our military, underwrites our diplomacy and development efforts, and serves as a leading source of our influence in the world.” – National Security Strategy, May 2010    

National Security includes the strength of our nation’s infrastructure, the foundation upon which the continuous growth of our society depends.  This includes its strong societal and moral codes, the rule of law, stable government and political institutions and leadership.  Also included are our nation’s schools and educational programs to ensure a knowledgeable citizenry and life-long learning including science, engineering, R&D and technological leadership but most of all a strong economy – all the things Americans take for granted.  Understanding the complex systems nature of National Security and why the economy is a part of the equation is the impetus for this symposium.
