Thank you. It's an honor to speak to this distinguished gathering of the Harris School of Public Policy Studies. To the students here this evening, your chosen field of study could not be more timely. Whatever the outcome of the upcoming elections, our leaders will need to craft thoughtful policies to mitigate a range of very serious problems.
I have seen the value of well-developed, well-implemented public policy from both sides - in government and in the private sector. I am grateful for the commitment you've made to a rigorous academic program in public policy, and for your mentors' generous contribution of time and expertise to your success and the success of this program.
