The Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC) has completed the Strengthening America’s Future Initiative (SAFI), a comprehensive study to identify the critical challenges that face the United States, and to develop a roadmap for regaining our strategic and financial freedom of action, unity at home and standing abroad. At a time of deep division and dysfunction in Washington, our nonpartisan Steering Committee of prominent experts and highly specialized Issue Teams worked together to developed prioritized recommendations within a conceptual framework to address our nation’s most pressing challenges.

Peterson Foundation, former Colorado Governor Roy Romer, former Lockheed Martin CEO Norman Augustine, along with former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, former Ambassador and U.S. Trade Representative Carla Hills, Dr. Fred Bergsten, President of the Peterson Institute of International Economics, and Pulitzer-prize winning author, Dr. Dan Yergin.
