Harald Malmgren – The American Century.
Harald Malmgren began his public service to the United States in 1962 when he was head-hunted by the Kennedy administration to join Defense Secretary Robert McNamara’s “Whizz Kids” group which advised on economic and strategic matters. Indeed, he was “in the room” during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Harald subsequently served in the administrations of Presidents Lyndon Johnson, Gerald Ford and Richard Nixon, variously on defence, trade and economics portfolios. His insight into US government is practically unmatched and we are thrilled to have him back at Kilkenomics to tell his story which is the story of the American Century.
