Obama’s Next Steps
Barack Obama received a clear mandate for his second term, although he will once again be confronted with a Republican-dominated House of Representatives. “Obama’s clear victory cannot allow us to forget how deeply divided the United States is,” said Josef Braml. This division and the country’s economic problems will greatly constrict the government’s capacity to act. Josef Braml, Claudia Schmucker, and Eberhard Sandschneider assessed the results of the election and discussed its consequences with guests at the DGAP.

The eurozone must introduce measures that will lead to more growth and integration – and increases to the euro bailout fund. This is the only way to build trust in the financial system. Lagarde also envisages a massive increase in the IMF’s crisis funds.
