Whether formal or informal, the effective control of subordinated societies by great powers is what defines imperialism. We favor a behavioral, not a juridical view of American imperial power. Yet, we also pay attention to the structural tension between an American Empire and an American Republic based on constitutional checks and balances. Government transparency and oversight – from the NSA to the Federal Reserve Bank – are issues in an Obama administration worthy of further discussion, since the president championed these causes in 2009. For this week's meeting we will discuss the following article. Feel free to have a look: http://www.lrb.co.uk/v38/n07/wolfgang-streeck/scenario-for-a-wonderful-tomorrow
