Speaker was knowledgeable, well-organized, and amiable, but lacked much hard evidence for his thesis that Able Archer 83 did not bring NATO and the Warsaw Pact closer to war.

Informative. The takeaway, be careful what you wish for, is well remembered.

Outstanding presentation of an intriguing idea: power conveyed by a country’s “net stock of resource.” So intriguing that I downloaded his book...and I’m disappointed. His proposed measure, gdp x gdp per capita, is neither a stock nor a netting of the flow of gdp. It might nevertheless serve as a rough indicator of power but why needs to be explained. Beckley is bright and articulate but when he deals with economic concepts, he ought to deal with economists.

Rev. Takafumi Zenryu Kawakami was great, his talk was very insightful and equally informative. The cherry on the cake was the meditation. Welcome the opportunity to join him in a retreat, which will be a great idea!
