The University of Maryland sponsored a conference entitled, “Picking Up the Pieces: The U.S. After Desert Storm,” to examine U.S. domestic and foreign policies following the cessation of U.S. military actions in the Middle East. Panel members in the forum, “U.S. After Desert Storm: A Focus on Domestic Issues,” analyzed trends in the American economy and the administration’s domestic economic policies. Mr. Allbritton said that while the economic consequences of the war to the American economy was not great, the psychological income may help lift the recession currently affecting the economy. However, he predicted the increased spending conducted by confident consumers would not be enough to keep the economy afloat forever. He criticized policies that would make the United States the world’s protector, and said the U.S. should attempt to restore rather than reform the world. close
