World Policy Institute - Global Economic Architecture Program


Director: Sam Natapoff

The Global Economic Architecture Project evaluates the political ramifications of global macroeconomics with a focus on U.S. foreign policy. It provides policy analysis examining global and domestic consequences of key political and economic events and trends for U.S. foreign policy, U.S. firms, and international institutions. Current projects include the strategic challenges facing U.S. foreign policy in January 2009, China’s evolving internet, the changing power of global financial markets, U.S. and international monetary policy, the constitutional and economic future of the European Union, the broader impact of Information Technology on the U.S. Economy, and Iran and the 2008 U.S. presidential election.

On December 20, 2007, the Global Economic Architecture Program organized "Iran in Campaign 2008: Myth Versus Reality in U.S. Policymaking," the first of a series of WPI briefings on key issues that will face the next U.S. president. GEAP Director Sam Natapoff moderated the discussion among The New York Times' Marcus Mabry, Amba. Peter Galbraith and Dr. Neguin Yavari, about how Iran shapes and is shaped by the current U.S. presidential election cycle. View the video below.
