WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Chamber Global Innovation Policy Center (GIPC) President and CEO David Hirschmann released the following statement today in response to the release of USTR’s Notorious Markets list:
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce recently laid out its agenda for 2018 at the annual State of American Business.
This fourth edition of the International Index of Energy Security Risk (International Index) provides an updated look at energy security risks across different countries for the years 1980 through 2014.
This 2017 Edition of the Index of U.S. Energy Security Risk is the ﬁrst that we are releasing as the Chamber’s Global Energy Institute. GEI’s original incarnation, the Institute for 21st Century Energy, was formed in 2007 at a time when gasoline prices were at an all-time high, America’s dependence on foreign oil was growing, and our energy security was worsening alarmingly. Today, the situation is much different, which is reﬂected in our new name. American energy has changed our economy, and now it will change the world’s.
America’s relatively recent energy revolution has fundamentally transformed the way we find, access, transport, and consume the energy resources that power our economy. Moving from an Era of Energy Scarcity to an Era of Energy Abundance has caught many by surprise and upended global energy markets.
This paper marks the third in a series of reports that we will be releasing this fall, each taking a substantive look at what might have happened in the past – or could happen in the future – if certain energy-related ideas and policy prescriptions put forth by prominent politicians and their supporters were actually adopted. We’re calling it the Energy Accountability Series. Certainly, one doesn’t need to look far these days to find platforms or outlets that claim to be definitive “fact-checkers” of all manner of utterances candidates make on the campaign trail. On that, the Energy Accountability Series will not seek to reinvent the wheel. What we are much more interested in – and what we think will be much more valuable to voters, as well – is taking a step back to better understand (and quantify where possible) the real-world, economy-wide consequences of living in a world in which candidates’ rhetoric on critical energy issues were to become reality.

Here's what happened at the post-State of American Business Address press conference.
On Wednesday U.S. Chamber President and CEO Tom Donohue delivered the annual "State of American Business" address. In his speech, Donohue talked about the need to embrace technology in our economy. Excerpts include: Next, technology must be embraced as the growth-driver and game-changer that it is.
Donohue Urges Leaders to Pursue Stronger, Sustained, Shared Economic Growth WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Chamber President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue, in his annual “State of American Business” address today, reflected on 2017 as a breakthrough year for economic growth as he outlined a forward-looking policy agenda to build on gains and put America on a path toward meaningful, long-term prosperity.
