The 2013 Mortimer Caplin Conference Convenes in Washington

Date: 12/6/2013

The 2013 Mortimer Caplin Conference on the World Economy was held on December 2, 2013 at The National Press Club in Washington, D.C.  This year's gathering marks the sixth installment of the conference which focused on "The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership: A Multilateral Perspective."  The all-day conference included senior practitioners from academia, business, government, law, and media who took part in the following panel discussions:

  1. U.S. Free Trade Agreements in Historical and Comparative Perspective
  2. Is TTIP Good for the United States?
  3. A Deeper U.S.-EU Economic Relationship: Implications for American Global Strategy

Unlike in previous years, the 2013 Caplin Conference features two separate gatherings: one in the United States and one in Europe. While each conference will examine similar subject matter, they will have separate charges. The conference in the U.S., organized by the University of Virginia's Miller Center, will focus on questions from the American perspective; likewise, the European conference, convened by the University of Edinburgh's Europa Institute, will examine the TTIP from the EU perspective. Upon conclusion of both conferences, a joint report featuring conclusions and recommendations will be developed and disseminated to key target audiences. For more information, please visit the Miller Center's website.

The 2013 Mortimer Caplin Conference on the World Economy is made possible by the generosity of Caplin & Drysdale's founder, Mortimer M. Caplin, whose vision and philanthropy have helped to sustain the conference.
