Description : Abstract
Christy George interviews Andrew Young (Mayor of Atlanta). Young talks about his efforts to facilitate international trade between Atlanta businesses and third-world nations. Young says that urban mayors can help local businesses by leading trade delegations and encouraging local businesses to get involved in emerging markets. Young criticizes the federal government's reliance on the military in conducting foreign policy. He says that the US must act with intelligence and rely on diplomacy to solve world problems. Young talks about US involvement in Vietnam, Lebanon, and El Salvador. Young and George discuss African Americans in politics. Young does not believe that a candidate should not represent one single constituency. Young says that more African Americans need to be elected as senators, mayors and governors before an African American is elected as president.
