‘‘ T Americaneedstoactanewandthinkanew. That’s what Abraham Lincoln told the American people in 1862, suggesting that the dogmas of the quiet past would not help them in their stormy present. His words seem just as apt today as the U.S. faces its greatest challenge since the 1930s. But it is impossible – if you consider the economic and political resilience this nation has shown in past crises and the ingenuity, vision and character of its business leaders – not to regard the future with measured optimism. The rise of China as an economic superpower should not blind us to the size, influence and underlying vitality of the U.S. economy. The U.S. reacted swiftly to the global economic crisis. As a percentage of GDP, the federal government’s stimulus package was significantly greater than the investments made by rival economies. If government’s role is managed wisely and if business thinks anew about its models, strategies and performance, the economy will recover. To assist in that thinking, we explore such great U.S. success stories as Cisco, IBM and News Corporation in this issue. Agenda’s insights into growth, governance and performance are now online. At www.kpmg.com/agendaonline you will find a variety of content – some written exclusively for the w eb – all produced with one aim: to help you run your business. ’’ Alan Buckle Global Head of Advisory, KPMG
