American conceptions of world order and transatlantic relations.

The number of conflicts worldwide has increased significantly in the past decade. The United Nations is trying to counter this trend with a new guiding principle. Conflict prevention and the promotion of peace-building structures are intended to preserve peace in the long term. It is up to the United States to maintain world peace and stabilize it in the future. For some time now, America’s domestic and foreign policies have signaled that the world power’s economic and security interests are focused mainly on confrontation with China. Because of a dispute with Russia in the Old World, the U.S. will not alienate even its new ally India, which is a beneficiary of Western Russia sanctions but which it needs against its main rival China in the economic region of the future Asia.

U.S. security, energy and trade policies. And – who owns the Internet?

The U.S. also leads the way in development in the digital world. Especially the development of Artificial Intelligence, ChatGPT and other new technologies, companies like Meta, Microsoft, OpenAI, Google, Apple, Anthropic, Inflection and Facebook are in the race against China for the position of technological supremacy. Europe plays only a minor role, except for SAP in Germany and Starmind in Switzerland, the development of new technologies takes place in Silicon Valley.

The American Patient – Risks and Market Opportunities in the USA

And last but not least, the American economy. The U.S. President with the Department of Commerce decides on tariffs against foreign suppliers and industries. America First or global trade after all? In addition to economic policy, the stock market on Wall Street is also responsible for the direction. America is the motherland of financial market-driven capitalism. And to this day, when Wall Street coughs, global markets get pneumonia. But in the USA, of all places, doubts about the system are emerging. The question of whether the principle of shareholder value is still appropriate is becoming louder and louder. Politicians on both the right and the left are increasingly criticizing the status quo. This is also true with regard to the climate issue, which is slowly appearing on the agenda not only among young people but also in Corporate America. How serious are the players about changing values? What are the potential implications for global financial markets?
