A high-standard, open global economy requires a regular update to its rules and the right division of labor between domestic and international economic policies to remain a driver of prosperity for the United States, Germany, and the European Union. The Geoeconomics Program has three main areas of focus. Trade and Financial Governance examines the trade, financial, and monetary policies that governments can draw upon to create dynamic, sustainable, and inclusive growth, and to promote their global economic interests. Educating the Future Workforce assesses ongoing workforce development and labor market challenges for the United States and Europe.

The focus of Energy and Climate Policy is to examine European energy security, and the economic impact of energy and environmental policies.
