We assess the impact of the US political economy on the international institutions that govern the global economy and broader changes in international economic affairs. 


US foreign economic and trade policy is shaped by the country's domestic political economy as well as international trends in economics, geopolitics and technology.

The United States has played an essential role in multilateral and regional institutions designed to govern the world economy. We evaluate US participation in these institutions and the effect of this on global governance. We also evaluate America's changing economic and trade policy priorities and how these reflect and relate to broader economic and geopolitical trends.
