This has to be one of the top priorities after the election.

Complete free trade and common product standards would unlock tens (perhaps hundreds) of billions of dollars in additional profitable private investment annually. With high returns: faster productivity growth. higher real wages and higher tax revenues.

Negotiating the fiscal cliff & other fire fighting is necessary. Free US-EU trade is one of the few things that will make the fighting so much less painful.

Top of the agenda.
