CGS Announces New Fellows Jaffe and King




The Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies welcomed two new fellows to its ranks this summer. Amy Myers Jaffe joined in August as the David M. Rubenstein senior fellow for energy and the environment and director of the Energy Security and Climate Change program. Previously, she served as executive director for energy and sustainability at the University of California, Davis, and as senior advisor on energy and sustainability at the Office of the Chief Investment Officer of the University of California Regents. Amy was also a global fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. At CFR, she will focus on energy security, climate change, and related topics.

In September, Mervyn King rejoined CFR as a distinguished fellow. King is currently a professor of economics and law at the Stern and Law Schools at New York University. He was governor of the Bank of England and chairman of the monetary policy and financial policy committees from 2003 to 2013, helping to shape UK monetary policy during the global economic recession. He was previously deputy governor from 1998 to 2003, and served as chief economist and executive director from 1991 to 1998.

We are delighted to have them both at CGS.






President Donald J. Trump’s trade team began meetings with counterparts in Mexico and Canada this August to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). On the President’s Inbox podcast, Maurice R. Greenberg Chair and Director of Studies James M. Lindsay and Managing Editor of Robert McMahon interviewed Rohinton P. Medhora (president of the Centre for International Governance Innovation, in Canada) and Andres Rozental (founding president of the Mexican Council on Foreign Relations) about the deal’s future.

Bernard L. Schwartz Senior Fellow Edward Alden previewed the NAFTA negotiations on the CFR blog Renewing America, highlighting four challenges that would need to be addressed for the process to be considered a success. (An earlier post, meanwhile, threw cold water on the idea that a trade war could extract meaningful concessions from Washington’s NAFTA partners.) A new report from CFR’s Digital and Cyberspace Policy program calls on the Trump administration to ensure that NAFTA addresses the challenges and opportunities of the digital economy. And Nelson and David Rockefeller Senior Fellow Shannon K. O’Neil argued in Fortune that NAFTA could use some tweaks on issues including environmental protections, intellectual property, and e-commerce, but concluded that the three NAFTA nations would benefit most by looking beyond small fixes and using this process as an opportunity to make the bloc more competitive.






Congress is back in session after its summer break, and reforming the U.S. tax system is high on its autumn agenda. Lawmakers are debating how much to cut individual and corporate taxes, as well as whether and how to pay for any lost revenue. When House Republicans offered a tax proposal last spring, a border adjustment tax featured prominently among revenue-raising options. Senior Fellow Brad W. Setser (with coauthor David Kamin) ran the numbers on just how much revenue such a policy would raise.
