Counterbalance | Ep. 28: The Dream Palace of American Foreign Policy

Michael Doran & Marshall Kosloff

Mike & Marshall return from their fall break to reflect on how group-think within academia today has created a dangerous culture of consensus of analysis on American foreign policy. Additionally, they debate the pros & cons of isolationism versus a forward-leaning military presence around the globe.

About Counterbalance:

Counterbalance is a foreign policy podcast that embodies Hudson’s tradition of challenging conventional wisdom. The Trump era attacked the elite consensus regarding several key issues, including the rise of China, American policy toward the Middle East, and the compartmentalization of domestic and foreign policy. Many observers in the media and in establishment foreign policy circles are presenting the advent of a Biden presidency as a total repudiation of President Trump’s policies and a return to “normalcy.” But, regardless of how one feels about the Trump era or any of his specific policies, there is no turning back the clock. The elite foreign policy consensus will never be the same. Counterbalance will reckon with what’s next.
