September 16 and 17, 2009 – Stephen Harper delivers an anti-protectionist message at meetings with President Obama in Washington and business leaders in New York.
We know that a dynamic market economy does require governance. Now we’re not going to create a world government, but we do have to have the countries of the world come together and look at global problems together, and look at the global economy as a system.
We have to start to look at things … from a more enlightened view of our national interest that understands that if we don’t think globally, and think about global solutions, if we all simply work on national solutions, we are going to continue to have these kinds of problems.
– Stephen Harper
