Join Creative Retirement and prepare to dicsuss the world! Organized by the Foreign Policy Association, Great Decisions series features impartial, thought-provoking analyses on eight issues of concern to policymakers and citizens today. Join this lively discussion group where participants lead and learn from each other. Participants have respect for each one’s life experiences, value systems, and beliefs.  All registrants receive a briefing book on the 2018 issues after registering. We hit the ground running, so be prepared to discuss the first topic at our first session! Each week includes a half-hour video on each topic, offering expert analyses by administration officials, policy makers and educators. Discussion follows. This year’s topics are as follows: "Refugees and Global Migration", "The Middle East: Regional Disorder", "Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future?", "The Rise of Populism in Europe", "Decoding U.S.-China Trade", "Cyber Conflicts and Geopolitics,"  "The United States and Mexico: Partnership Tested", and last "State of the State Department and Diplomacy." This class meets every other Friday and does not interfere with Creative Retirement Roundtable. Registration includes the cost of the book. A discounted rate of $39 is available to those who are sharing a book with another person. Creative Retirement membership is required to participate.
