The German trade surplus is often criticized by international trade partners, also by the United States of America. Is the imbalance only a problem for German trade partners? Or does it harm the German economy as well? What are the reasons for export surplus? We are going to discuss this with Professor Wade Jacoby, Professor of Political Science at Brigham Young University. He will give a speech on the controversial topic of trade surplus or “Surplus Germany” from an American perspective.

Please register by sending an email to: HamburgPA@state.gov

The event will be moderated by Eveline Metzen, General Manager of the American Chamber of Commerce in Germany.
Biographic information on Professor Wade Jacoby can be found here.

This event is organized by the Consulate General of the United States of America in Hamburg, the Handelskammer Hamburg, the American Chamber of Commerce and the American Club of Hamburg.
