The Shape of the Future: The Transatlantic Economy by 2025
The foundation of the world economy has rested squarely on the shoulders of the transatlantic economy for the past 60 years. It is the largest, most powerful, and most productive economy in the world. And while the first decade and a half of globalization was largely driven and shaped by the United States and Europe, the world of tomorrow will be different. It will be less U.S.-centric and more crowded as new players, like China, Russia, India, and Brazil, from the developing nations reshape the global landscape.
There are many complementary and convergent interests that can bind together the transatlantic economy and the rise of developing nations. The task for the coming decades is to identify these interests and construct working relationships for all parties. Failure to do so will come at a high price. While the transatlantic economy remains one of the most vibrant components of the world economy, maintaining this position will not be easy. Avoiding the twilight means the transatlantic partnership must undergo a period of transformation.
