Georgetown First Year Seminar – Editorial Board

Students in FYS develop an editorial which tackles an institutional trade issue relevant to them. These editorials can take any form of dissemination ranging from print instruments, social media, or Youtube films. The work can include an assessment of government and taxpayer expenditure on a trade related measures. Or it can represent the impact of government actions on corporate trade conditions. With help of a course specific editorial board, each student will write a draft editorial during the semester, to become a final public editorial due on the November 29th session of the course. The first editorial draft is handed in for comment by and discussion with the instructor and the editorial team. Subsequently, after discussion, the goal is to produce one cohesive, brief and insightful commentary which is postable or publishable for mail-out. Each student will collaborate with the editorial board, the coaches and professor. A typed, double-spaced editorial will be presented to the instructor and the board and submitted as an online copy together with a one sentence personal bio and a personal professional picture. The instructor and the coaches will work with students and talk in class about rules for editorials and their improvements.

Auto Kartels in Germany

Has the German emissions scandal affected US consumers?

In Germany, many consumers have been shocked by allegations of widespread emissions cheating. But in the United States, there is little awareness of events unfolding within Germany’s car industry. I explore these issues in my interview with Deutsche Welle.

Donald Trump- Economic Fright or Miracle? (in German)

donald-trump-684c376f6a658f7c

After a heated and arduous election campaign, it is clear that Donald Trump has won the race for the US presidency. The candidate, who is particularly striking in the election campaign with outrageous speeches and full-bodied announcements, promised to create 25 million jobs, invest massively in the infrastructure, and re-establish trade agreements. So what is coming to the US? Foreclosure and isolation, new tariffs and exploding state debts – How many expert prophesies are there? Will Trump lead to an economic catastrophe or a new miracle? And who are actually Trump’s economic policy consultants? Astrid Petermann discusses with Michael Czinkota, a professor at the Georgetown University in Washington and Valentin Hofstätter, analyst and US expert at Raiffeisen Research, in the Austrian economic magazine SALDO.
