The Economist Debate: 'The United States is a responsible world economic leader'

This debate is presented in conjunction with Chatham House Under 35’s Forum.
This event is complimentary, however seats are limited so registration is strongly recommended.

America is the world’s leading economic power, as the sheer size of its economy, dominance of the dollar, and vibrancy of US capital markets make clear. But there are growing questions about whether it is still the world’s economic leader, able to inspire others and achieve its international goals. Is this shift real, and if so, what has contributed to it? Has globalization strengthened or weakened America’s economic leadership? Is it perceived as responsible in international trade negotiations and multilateral organisations? What role do oil and current-account deficits play? What are the limits to America’s economic leadership?
