Economic Policy Program

The Economic Policy Program is an initiative of GMF dedicated to promoting cooperation between the United States and Europe on domestic and international economic policies as vital instruments of global prosperity, especially for the poor and those affected by shifts in the global economy. The United States and Europe account for more than 40 percent of world economic activity, close to $20 trillion in goods and services on an annual basis. Given the size and importance of this relationship, GMF’s Economic Policy Program seeks to ensure that the benefits of globalization are distributed equitably and fairly. Through in-depth research, targeted grantmaking, strategic convening, and outreach to key policymakers and the media, the program supports transatlantic leadership at the critical nexus of economic policy, trade, development assistance, and management of domestic sectors such as agriculture.
