About the Trilateral Commission:
"When the first triennium of the Trilateral Commission was launched in
1973, the most immediate purpose was to draw together—at a time of
considerable friction among governments—the highest-level unofficial
group possible to look together at the key common problems facing our
three areas. At a deeper level, there was a sense that the United States
was no longer in such a singular leadership position as it had been in
earlier post-World War II years, and that a more shared form of
leadership—including Europe and Japan in particular—would be needed for
the international system to navigate successfully the major challenges
of the coming years.
The “growing interdependence” that so
impressed the founders of the Trilateral Commission in the early 1970s
has deepened into “globalization.”"...
