Description: From its inception, the National Security Council has addressed economic issues: two of its first four meetings, held in 1947, focused on exports to the USSR. But while trade and finance have been key components of U.S. foreign policy, they also have had substantial impact on citizen welfare at home. This impact has increased with the growing internationalization of the U.S. economy. Hence, from the early 1970s, NSC jurisdiction over international economic matters has been challenged by individuals and institutions concerned with domestic economic policy. In the Clinton administration, this was manifested by the creation of the National Economic Council paralleling the NSC, and by the coordination of international economic policy through a combined staff reporting to the national security adviser and the national economic adviser.
