One of the defining features of the global economic landscape over the past decade has been the increasing integration and cohesion of the transatlantic economy. Over the past few years the Center for Transatlantic Relations has offered a series of studies examining the changing nature of the transatlantic economy in a globalizing world. The Transatlantic Economy 2008 annual report offers the most up-to-date survey of European-sourced jobs, trade, and investment for each of the fifty U.S. states and U.S.-sourced jobs, trade, and investment for all EU member states and other European economies.
