She revealed that economic forces are renovating foreign policy realities all around the world.
She said “We have seen governments toppled by economic crisis. Revolutions born in a Tunisian marketplace have swept across an entire region. Europe faces its strongest test in a generation, thanks to recession and debt. And everywhere I travel, I see countries gaining influence not because of the size of their armies, but because of the growth of their economies.”
She stressed that United states should take a leaf out of the book emerging economies like Brazil and India.
She further added “When their leaders approach a foreign policy challenge — just as when they approach a domestic challenge — one of the first questions they ask is, ‘how will this affect our economic growth? We need to be asking the same question — not because the answer will dictate our foreign policy choices, but because it must be a significant part of the equation.”
