Strengthening America’s Future Initiative
In 2007 through 2009, CSPC convened the Strengthening America’s Future Initiative, inspired by Dr. Abshire’s book, A Call to Greatness: Challenging the Next President. This project, co-chaired by Norm Augustine, Leon Panetta, Roy Romer, and David Walker—alongside over 110 project contributors—developed two comprehensive reports. The first, Saving America’s Future, provided a strategic framework for the political, economic, and security issues that would face the winner of the 2008 election. The second, Prosperity or Decline?, provided a series of policy solutions and political reforms for the incoming administration and Congressional leaders.
