Exchange programs to Europe

Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress

European_Exchange_2009_Donfried_BaggerSince 2004, the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress has been working with senior decision-makers in the United States and Europe to address disconnects between the EU, NATO and the G8. With a focus on foreign policy, homeland security and the Middle East, the first round of these consultations resulted in the Center publication Maximizing NATO for the War on Terror, which recommended steps to pursue shared security interests through better leadership and greater Executive branch coordination. In 2006, Center staff followed up on those efforts with senior European allies in Brussels, London, Berlin and Lisbon, with a goal of strengthening multilateral leadership.

The Center built on these efforts with an initiative on transatlantic relations, Strengthening Multi-Lateral Leadership: A European Exchange Program. This program brought 14 exceptional young leaders (ages 30-40) from positions of policy planning in European governments or in the policy-research community to Washington, DC, to meet with experts involved in the 2009 and past Presidential transitions in order to better understand the challenges and processes of the period. Within the frame of “transition, ” these visitors were exposed to the technical workings of the U.S. government, from the personnel selection process to developing agendas for the Obama Administration. Critical policy issues were deliberated in an effort to present and candidly discuss the prevailing attitudes in Washington as well as in Brussels and other European capitals. The goal of this initiative was to explore avenues for European and U.S. cooperation in order to prevent communication breakdowns between transatlantic governments during the transition, as well as to strengthen the relationship and communication between governmental, policy and academic institutions in the U.S. and abroad.

When I would get $$ from family/friends, my parents gave me a choice:
-keep it all and blow it
-deposit all or a portion of it into my account that they would manage and invest for me. They would match whatever I put away in my savings. When I was 15, i had over $10,000 and we decided together that I would do month-long exchange programs to Europe my sophmore and junior years in HS.

No, I simply understand the factors

That go into the foreign exchange market. You clearly have no idea. The recent run-up in the Euro/Pound were more about getting away from the dollar than getting into the Euro/Pound. Once that upward pressure eases, they will drop like rocks. Count on it. Tell me: give me ONE factor causing the dollar to go lower that doesn't also apply to the Euro? Name one. Huge, unpayable debts? Check. Aging population with massive entitlement programs? Even worse in Europe than here. Current account deficit with China? Larger in the EU than in the US. I'm waiting.
