As we approach the sixtieth anniversary of the signing of the Treaty of Rome, Europe is at a crossroads. The rise of populist movements and the recent vote by the British people to leave the European Union have put the decades of progress made by the European project in jeopardy. The European Union’s ability to maintain its position as a geopolitical leader and partner of the United States rests in its ability to generate significant economic growth and ensure prosperity for its citizens.

"Charting the Future Now: European Economic Growth and its Importance to American Prosperity” details the inextricable links connect the European and US economies and provides concise policy recommendations on how to stimulate growth in Europe for the benefit of both Europeans and Americans.
