The Miller Center held the second part of the 2013 Mortimer Caplin Conference on the World Economy in Edinburgh, Scotland last week, in partnership with the Europa Institute at the University of Edinburgh. It was the sixth Caplin Conference but the first consisting of two sessions that approach an issue from dual perspectives. The issue examined during the 2013 conference was the proposed Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), and the perspectives considered were those of the U.S. and the EU.
