This annual survey offers the most up-to-date picture of the dense economic relationship binding European countries to America’s 50 states. The survey consists of four chapters. Chapter One offers Headline Trends for the transatlantic economy. Chapter Two updates our basic framework for understanding the deeply integrated transatlantic economy via ‘eight ties that bind.’ Chapter Three offers an overview of U.S. commercial relations with Europe, and Chapter Four an overview of European commercial ties with the United States. The appended charts provide the most up-to-date information on European-sourced jobs, trade and investment with the 50 U.S. states, and U.S.-sourced jobs, trade and investment with the 28 member states of the European Union, as well as Norway, Switzerland and Turkey.
This annual survey complements our other writings in which we use both geographic and sectoral lenses to examine the deep integration of the transatlantic economy, and the role of the United States and Europe in the global economy, with particular focus on how globalization affects American and European consumers, workers, companies, and governments. In The Geopolitics of TTIP (2014), we explore the broader ramifications of the U.S.-EU Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership. We also provide regular TTIP analysis via the Center’s Transatlantic Partnership Forum.
