Transatlantic Economic Ties: A Conversation with Under Secretary David R. Malpass
- Mr. David R. Malpass, Under Secretary for International Affairs, U.S. Department of the Treasury
- Dr. Karen Donfried, President, The German Marshall Fund of the U.S.
Ten years after the financial crisis of 2008 and the ensuing recession, economies on both sides of the Atlantic are growing again. In the United States, unemployment has dropped to record lows and growth has been steady for years. In Europe, all countries of the euro area are growing simultaneously for the first time in more than a decade. The transatlantic economic relationship continues to be of utmost significance for both sides. Still, some macroeconomic vulnerabilities persist in the transatlantic economy, as a result of disagreements over trade policy and complex Brexit negotiations remain unsolved. In addition, questions about Europe’s evolving Banking Union and international cooperation on financial regulations continue to be on the agenda of transatlantic economic policymakers.
Please join us on Monday, July 16 for a conversation with David Malpass on the economic issues facing both sides of the Atlantic.
