Perspective?  No one has a longer or better-informed view of world affairs and 
America's role than George Shultz, now 97. 

Secretary Shultz was a US Marine Captain in World War II.  After becoming an 
economics professor at MIT and the University of Chicago he served the Nixon 
administration as Secretary of Labor, then director of the Office of Management 
and Budget, then Secretary of the Treasury.  Back in private life by 1974, he 
led Bechtel Group as executive vice president and president.  He was appointed  
Secretary of State in 1982, where he helped finesse Reagan’s relationship with 
Gorbachev that wound down the Cold War.

Still active in public policy after leaving government in 1989, Shultz has been 
an advocate for legalizing recreational drugs, for ending the Cuban embargo, 
for a world totally free of nuclear weapons, and for a revenue-neutral carbon 

Secretary Shultz will be interviewed on stage by Peter Schwartz---head of 
strategy for Salesforce, a founding board member of Long Now, formerly the CEO 
of Global Business Network, and author of The Art of the Long View (01991).
