David Brooks of The New York Times wrote a column this month about what he called “a remarkable shift in how Americans see the world and their own country’s role in the world.” As he explained: “For the first time in half a century, a majority of Americans say that the United States should be less engaged in world affairs, according to the most recent Pew Research Center survey.” But Brooks says the poll shows that “America is not turning inward economically,” with more than three-quarters of Americans agreeing that we need to be more economically integrated internationally.
