Peter Navarro and Glen Hubbard released Seeds of Destruction: Why the Path to Economic Ruin Runs Through Washington, and How to Reclaim American Prosperity.
In this powerful, timely, and nonpartisan book, Hubbard and Navarro take on the most important problem of our age -- a decade-long pattern in which the American economy has grown below its full potential, giving rise to fears about the nation's future prosperity.
The analytical approach the two authors take is as innovative as it is insightful. They begin by explaining that the growth of any nation is propelled by four drivers -- consumption, business investment, government spending, and net exports. The authors then use this 'GDP Growth Driver equation' to illustrate how each of the four components of the American economy suffer from major structural imbalances. To understand that these structural imbalances make it virtually impossible for the American economy to reach its full potential growth rate is to understand that the key to solving America's economic problems lies in rebalancing the American economy.
Forecasting the U.S. and global economy
This forecast can be tailored to either investors or business executives. For investors, it includes a discussion of appropriate money management strategies over the course of the stock market cycle. For business executive audiences, my forecast similarly includes a discussion of appropriate business strategies over the course of the business cycle. For both investors and business executives, the most important part of my speech is to teach them to become their own economic forecasters. This approach is presented in my book Always a Winner. For groups seeking a strong educational component for their audience, this 'teach you how to forecast' aspect of the speech is always a big hit.
Strategically Meeting the China Challenge
The foundation for this speech is Professor Navarro's analysis of U.S.-China relations in his book The Coming China Wars. In that book, he describe how the emergence of China is sparking a tremendous competition globally for markets, natural resources, and political and military influence. For corporate audiences, Peter explains how to conduct a proper risk assessment when considering offshoring production facilities to China. For companies facing stiff Chinese competition, he also offers a suite of strategies to combat China's 'weapons of mass production'.

The presentation is specifically tailored to the particular industry that Peter is working with.
