A joint meeting of The Empire Club of Canada and The Canadian Club of Toronto. An historical perspective of where and how the United States finds itself, economically and politically in 1973. The end of one era, the beginning of another. A period of upheaval. Profound changes in world commerce. The ceasefire in Vietnam. A review of the post-World War II era, and the success of the last quarter century. The current state of international commerce with five great potential trading entities: the European community, the U.S., Japan, the Soviet Union, and China. The trade picture for Canada and the United States. Canadian-American conflicts on trade policy. The fears and challenges of change. The address is followed by a wide-ranging question and answer period.
