Globalization Report 2018: Who Benefits Most from Globalization?

There is growing uncertainty in industrialized countries as to whether globalization means more opportunity or more risk. Trump, Brexit and increasing populism are direct consequences of this development. However, our Globalization Report 2018 shows for the third time in a row, as in 2014 and 2016: when measured in terms of real gross domestic product (GDP) per capita, industrialized countries continue to be the biggest winners of increasing globalization, while  developing and emerging economies lag behind. read more

Globalization Report 2018: What about the NAFTA Countries?

The FIFA World Cup 2026 will take place in the three member states of the North-American Free Trade Area (NAFTA) – Mexico, Canada and the United States.

This analysis is based on our “Globalization Report 2018” published on June 8th, 2018. read more

The Anatomy of the U.S. Balance of Trade

Already during the election campaign Donald Trump had announced protectionist measures to reduce the high trade deficit of the U.S. Since March 2018 at the latest, this announcement has taken on ever more concrete form. The trade sanctions were initially mainly directed against China. But the European Union (EU) will not be spared either. The main reason for this are the bilateral trade deficits of the U.S. with these two economic areas. read more
