An Economic NATO
A New Alliance for a New Global Order
In this policy brief, the future of the transatlantic relationship in the context of economic security is examined. The author argues that unless the US and Europe make a concerted, focused, and intensive effort to meet the challenges of the post-recession era together, they risk ceding their economic and political influence to rising powers in ways that could undermine global stability, as well as their own long term prosperity and values. Therefore, the US and Europe need to reimagine their relationship, engaging strategically to manage the greatest shift of economic and military power since the 19th century.
