Measuring Transatlantic Digital Connections


Transatlantic digital connections have become essential to the $5.5 trillion transatlantic economy. Yet their impact is difficult to measure. They enable fast cross-border delivery of a variety of services that were once considered non-tradable. Yet is difficult to measure or define the digital economy’s impact on trade. Such efforts are plagued by "5 I's:" inconsistent definitions, inadequate categorizations, insufficient information, non-transparent methodologies and irregular evaluations.

A new study, The Transatlantic Digital Economy 2017: How and Why it Matters for the United States, Europe and the World, attempts to fill this gap. Authored by Professor Daniel S. Hamilton of Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University, the study is the first of its kind to measure and assess the importance of the digital connections binding the US and Europe. Professor Hamilton has devised a Top Ten set of metrics along these lines and also address current challenges, and future opportunities.
