James Addison Baker III is an American attorney, diplomat and statesman. He served as the 10th White House Chief of Staff and 67th United States Secretary of the Treasury under President Ronald Reagan and the 61st U.S. Secretary of State before returning as the 16th White House Chief of Staff under President George H. W. Bush.


In the buildup to the Gulf War he said the following:[1][2][3]

“The economic lifeline of the industrial world runs from the gulf, and we can not permit a dictator such as this to sit astride that economic lifeline," [...] To bring it down to the level of the American citizen, let me say that means jobs. If you want to sum it up in one word, it's 'jobs'. Because an economic recession worldwide, caused by the control by one nation - one dictator if you will- of the West's economic lifeline, will result in the loss of jobs for American citizens.”
James Baker (November 1990)  [4]
