Winter-Spring 2012 Programs Begin

In this issue...




January 2012


As Cambridge Forum has discussed "How We Live Today," one word has come up over 
and over again in many contexts:  insecurity.  Americans feel insecure about their
futures, about their jobs, their children's schools, their health care, their politicians.
Where does this sense of unease come from?  Globalization is seen as a key factor
driving our loss of optimism  and well-being.  This season programs will take a 
longer look at the phenomenon of globalization -- its economic effects and its diplomatic,
military, and foreign policy ramifications.
Join us for our lively live conversations or catch up with us later on the newly
 revived WGBH Forum Network. [http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?llr=7wih55cab&et=1109083713634&s=217&e=001qmUugtGM0tKWjfgfbwMyyRncXOHuVZvvsBnBkbqjavNgr_YvB8pTiC-gIgq_TGYd3hJnFcLPQmL6IgbDMLC1mMl7L0COBJ9QrTDeiSsaEd5GRpvpAiNEwFJ2FdnDMK82qcUmtjbPRJ4oUNWe0ku4Qg==]
