Understanding Global Interdependency to Promote International Security
Global interdependency and the speed at which goods, services, technology, ideas, information, people, disease and even mood travel across the planet is increasing at a scale and degree far beyond historical experience.
The international security ramifications of this escalating interdependency cannot be controlled without strategic policies that address the combined economic, social and governmental processes that structure the flow of goods and services and ensure international prosperity.
In their National Strategic Narrative (April, 2011), Captain Wayne Porter (US Navy) and Colonel Mark Mykleby (US Marine Corps) articulate the crucial importance of these deeply-connected global systems to our national security. Designed to address just these sorts of questions, CASoS Engineering modeling and analysis provide essential analytical underpinnings and the tools that support policy decision.
