-- sidelined itself is basically a troublesome prospect, whether you are in africa or china or india or others. so the bigger picture is a combination of dealing with the substantive challenges that the u.s. and europe and japan face, but also a sense about what role they would play in shaping this future international system that does, as everybody here working on development knows, have some incredible opportunities. one does not have to look at gloom and doom in this. africa has grown an average of about 5% for a decade. there's lots of opportunities there. we have private capital growing. china has grown 9.9%. it depends how you look at the world, but there are great opportunities, but they have to be seized, and we have to figure out how developed and emerging markets were together in a different way than they did in the past. bob, another news item getting a lot of justified attention is the food crisis in eastern africa, where 11 million people are at some risk in the current drought. this is everything from research on seats, including different conditions of climate change and

been to china, about a different trade missions and i'm probably going back to asia this fall. we try to work with a variety of countries relative to the opportunities to export more of our goods and services out of nebraska and other states, and have had significant investment for chinese companies into nebraska. i've learned this from another governor. governor markell was talking about how we learn from each other. early on, when i was governor, i learned from another governor, a reverse the trade mission. i've done two of them where we have invited the world to visit nebraska. they have been successful. we have had over 125 business and foreign officials come to nebraska to learn firsthand what we have to offer, and as a result of those visits, many companies decided to invest in the state of nebraska, and we were very pleased about that. >> absolutely right -- huge opportunities for us to work together, and when we last met as a group in july, there were a number of governors or party secretaries from china that were part of that meeting. we think about that as an opportunity to

be able to confront china. we have to be able to deal with the cyber threat. we have to deal with the challenge of rising powers. all of these things are the kinds of threats we will confront. on -- what kind of forced we need to have to do with those threats. clearly, i need your advice and guidance as we try to structure the future in the defense department. >> on that point, if we want the country to have patience with respect to fighting a long war, it will be even more important to define very clearly what is the vital national interest in terms of our current operations. thank you, mr. chairman. >> senator sessions. this is the kind of thing we do need to be talking about. secretary panetta, you said that the defense department has doubled and the last 10 years. actually, i find it to be an 84% increase, not quite double. over 10 years, that is the base budget. that is and it -- that is a significant increase, but not as much as some of the counts our government has had. the 10-year cost for both wars was about 1.3 trillion dollars. -- $1.30 trillion. the war cost will be no mor

back, you want to leave it in china or brazil or germany, you can -- there is no additional tax to leave it there. we have more than $1 trillion overseas. when you talk to the corporate guys who have been trying to get obama for the last 3 1/2 years to go to territoriality or allow repatriation of that money without a big tax hit, some say it is between $500 billion and $800 billion that would come back in the same year. it does not cost anybody anything. we just have to get rid of our worldwide tax system. the reason anheuser-busch was bought by a european company, it is more valuable if it is owned by a european company than an american company because of the way we tax earnings and other countries do not. if we did not fix this, other companies will start being bought more and more by foreign companies. the economics just makes sense. we can fix that by taking our rates down 25%. and by going to a territorial tax system. i think these are extremely important. another challenge that europe has is the defined-benefit government pensions, the social- welfare pensions, the unionized

[laughter] as a partisan. and then there is this question and i don't know -- i don't think the research has been done yet and roberto can correct me if i'm wrong here, in terms of this kind of millennial question. >> yes. >> the latino electorate is young and getting younger, and the question is how -- are they going

the oil from getting out. the canadians are looking seriously at a partnership with china to build the pipeline due west of vancouver. imagine american president so destructive that he forces canada into a partnership with china because they're more reliable than the united states, i would have thought it impossible. it goes against our deepest interests. we have a national security and an economic interest in developing energy security. we want to develop the maximum amount of new oil and gas because it will drive down the price of gasoline, which has doubled under obama and is continuing to go up because he is so deeply anti-american energy. it creates jobs and it lowers the cost of gasoline. the second reason is because i want us to become completely independent from the metal least -- the middle east.

even have the right china. she raise the money to buy a set of china. she was also very interested in style and fashion. she was a woman who cared about her appearance. she got a new set of china. and there was a publicity about her clothes, and it was the image of a woman who cared more about things that did not matter. and it did not go over well. that contributed to the public view. >> what was the difference between jacqueline kennedy coming in wearing fashionable, european desiged clothes and nancy reagan doing it, not that long after? >> that is a fair question. >> that is a fair question. nancy thought it would be a fair new start for her, but it was deja vu all over again. they criticized her for going shopping at bloomingdale's. look, jackie was a special case. there is an edgy website. i don't frequent it very often. it is called it is about sex and younger people stuff. i was on there recently, in preparation for this show, to see they ranked the sexiest first lady's in history. nancy reagan ranks very high. i was very surprised that this hip, young website up th

and china. this eased the tensions of the cold war at that time. and he did this at the same time that he was helping restore america's confidence in its role in international affairs following the collapse of cambodia and the fall of saigon. he was also able to focus the attention of the world and his country on other important matters. persuaded israel and egypt to accept an interim truce agreement, the first ever for the two countries. he was the first president to begin to emphasize the need for regulatory reform and the first president to call for a national energy policy. he was an early supporter of majority rule in south africa and he was a strong proponent of equal rights for women. did he accomplished everything he set out to accomplish? no, but he reversed our course and moved the country forward against strong and difficult headwinds. if there is a tragedy and president ford's term as president, it is not based on anything he did in the white house. nor is it based on anything that he did not do. no. the tragedy of president ford's service is that the american people d

nepal and turkey, and china and elsewhere. you are very welcome here. we are very grateful to you. [applause] before i ever appeared on the jon stewart show, my daughter told me years ago when she was just a little older than you that more people in her generation got their news from jon stewart that from the network news. [applause] at first, i thought it sounded a little weird. but i can tell you now, i have been on jon stewart's show to talk about two of the three books i have written since i left the white house. he clearly had read them. he knew what the facts were. he had been well briefed. and every other time i've been on there, he really seemed to me to have put in more time and more preparation and ask more serious question, while poking a little fun at me along the way, then anyone else who has interviewed me. in short, he has done what we need to do more of in our schools. he makes learning fun, and it is still learning. please welcome jon stewart.

not like it is root -- was before. there is now a two, three, and four. china is rising, other nations are rising -- i think that is terrific. that is lifting people out of poverty. i tell my audiences that we are still the shining city on the hill. a place to look to for inspiration it we must never lose that position. i would say to the next president -- first and foremost, before we can fully occupy that shining place on the hill, we have to fix our economy. people are unhappy because we have an economy that is not doing what we think it should do. the other thing i would point out is that, somehow, you have to find a way to get beyond the political fighting taking place in this town, and ask in a very personal way, not just policy, for the purpose of debating strong views pro and con, but for discussion. we have got to get past a politics of destruction. i do not know how you do this, but you have to figure out a way to bring the american media system under control so that it is concerned with informing us and not just fighting for market share from the latest story of the day abou
