Globalization 2.0: Path to German-American Prosperity?

In this webinar, Frances Burwell, Jacob Kirkegaard, and Stormy-Annika Mildner discuss how transatlantic partners could adapt, reform, and create rules and institutions for international trade to better deal with increasingly intertwining economic, climate, and national security challenges.

As economies around the world are steadily recovering from Covid-19 pandemic disruptions, they are facing new challenges that are calling into question the effectiveness of the existing international economic order. Would a new “Globalization 2.0” with updated guidelines for trade, investment, climate, and technology better promote U.S., German, and broader European values and interests in an era when economics and national security are increasingly interconnected? And are institutions like the World Trade Organization up to the task of advancing transatlantic prosperity, or is there a need to invent new arrangements based on different rules, issues, and members?
