Penny Pritzker, Secretary of Commerce, discusses how globalization will affect America's participation in the world economy. How does technology impact international commerce? What skills must America's children be taught to compete in this landscape? How do businesses adapt to find opportunity in emerging international markets? "American businesses need to be born global and they need to think global," says Pritzker. This session is moderated by Atlantic Media's Ronald Brownstein.


This discussion took place at the 2015 Washington Ideas Forum.
