Secretary George Shultz

Secretary George Shultz

Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 12:00 PM
Marines' Memorial Theatre, Second Floor
609 Sutter Street, San Francisco

In a rich and varied career that has included roles as U.S. secretary of state, secretary of the treasury and secretary of labor, George P. Shultz has aided presidents, confronted national and international crises, and argued passionately that the United States has a vital stake in promoting democratic values and institutions. In speeches, articles, congressional testimony and conversations with world leaders, he has helped shape policy and public opinion on topics such as technology, terrorism, drugs and climate change. The result is a body of work that has influenced the decisions of nations and leaders and impacted the lives of ordinary people.

In his newest book, Thinking About the Future, Secretary Shultz has collected and revisited key writings, applying his past thinking to America’s most pressing contemporary problems. In the more than half a century since Shultz entered public life, the world has changed dramatically. But he remains guided by the belief that “you can learn about the future—or at least relate to it—by studying the past and identifying principles that have continuing application to our lives and our world.” Here’s a rare chance to hear from one of America’s most respected statesmen.

The Commonwealth Club of California is the nation's oldest and largest public affairs forum. Each year, we bring more than 400 events on topics ranging across politics, culture, society and the economy to more than 25,000 members and the public.
