A new Sonderweg? The trans-Atlantic clash over crisis policy 2008-2018
Keynote address by
Author, Shelby Cullom Davis chair of History at Columbia University and Director of the European Institute
Transatlantic economic relations are at a difficult moment. There is talk of a trade wars. The immediate cause is the election of Donald Trump and his team of economic nationalists. But tensions between Europe and America over economic policy are not merely an effect of America’s populism. Particularly between Germany and the US deep divides opened up in the period of the financial crisis of 2008 and the Eurozone crisis. To this day most of the Anglophone economic policy community scratches its head over what Berlin trumpets as its new economic success story. In this talk Adam Tooze will explore the emergence of this divergence. How to account for Germany’s new “special path”? What are its domestic and international politics?
