introduced the other day by someone you know, mr. president, the ambassador to china. he stood up and said, "i went down to guantanamo and i interviewed some of the terrorists and i discovered that being threatening on a speech about debt from mr. peterson was much more threatening than waterboarding." we are confronting two risks. one is the possibility of a short-term european-style financial crisis. second is a longer-term growth crisis. critically needed investments in education cannot math, engineering, infrastructure, and so forth. these are not about the future. they are about the past. there is another downside. in addition to stagnating wages and a low growth economy, if we were to try to finance the current entitlement programs, your taxes would have to double. and there are all kinds of special interests you will find in this political system of ours. they vote, they write their congressman, they contribute financially, and they usually ask for more breaks, more benefits, and more tax breaks when we cannot afford what we have now. what we are critically lacking in this coun

-- 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

our shores. but right now, it's getting more expensive to do business in places like china. meanwhile, america is more productive. a few weeks ago, the ceo of master lock told me that it now makes business sense for him to bring jobs back home. today, for the first time in fifteen years, master lock's unionized plant in milwaukee is running at full capacity. so we have a huge opportunity, at this moment, to bring manufacturing back. but we have to seize it. tonight, my message to business leaders is simple -- ask yourselves what you can do to bring jobs back to your country, and your country will do everything we can to help you succeed. [applause] we should start with our tax code. right now, companies get tax breaks for moving jobs and profits overseas. meanwhile, companies that choose to stay in america get hit with one of the highest tax rates in the world. it makes no sense, and everyone knows it. so let's change it. first, if you're a business that wants to outsource jobs, you shouldn't get a tax deduction for doing it. that money should be used to cover moving expens

its means, borrowing more money from countries like china to fund its government, which simply means we'll have a debt crisis just like europe. we can't afford four more years like these last four years. we can't stand for that. the president is not giving us much of a second term agenda. he's not staying here are my abc's. he put out astelic 20-page brochure the other day, but you don't have to read it to know where we're headed. we know that he's promising a $2 trillion tax increase starting in january. of the 21 tax increases just in obama care, 12 of them hit middle income taxpayers. remember when he stayed he wouldn't have a middle income tax increase? well, there are 12 episodes, 12 examples where he failed to do that one. remember when he said he'd cut the deficit in half over four years. we've had trillion dollar deficits each and every year. remember when he said he'd bring people together to solve the country's biggest problems? this is the third president i've served with, it's the most partisan atmosphere i've ever seen. look, look at john casey. i learned a lot from that

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.

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

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
