Die Auswirkungen der Zwischenwahlen in den USA 2018 auf die transatlantischen Handelsbeziehungen. Aus der Forschung, 2018/2. (German only)
This paper shows how shifts of power relations within the American society have fundamentally changed transatlantic trade relations. Most important has been the dynamic within the Republican Party (GOP). So-called paleoconservatives moved to become the prediminant group that replaced the previous establishment. The mid-term elections of 2018 confirmed this trend of changing power relations. As a consequence, the existing transatalntic consensus how to conduct trade relations in a mutual beneficial manner based on reciprocity is broken down.
