Monetary Policy, Trade, and Politics: An Update on the Transatlantic Relationship June 21st Event

2017 is the year of campaigns across the West. President Trump’s inauguration in the United States was followed by the election of President Macron in France, snap elections in Great Britain, and the start of the general election campaign in Germany. In the span of nine months, the four largest powers in the transatlantic alliance will have confronted or experienced major political change. This has unleashed an expansive debate on the state of the West, from trade to monetary policy to the military alliance.

To address these topics and more, Hudson Institute hosted a discussion with fellow Peter Rough, research fellow Benjamin Haddad, and senior fellows Tom Duesterberg and Brendan Brown.
