Kerry's Economic Plan Appeals to Europeans Concerned about U.S. Budget Deficit

Alan Cafruny, professor of international affairs at Hamilton College says, "The presidential elections are extremely significant for Europe. The Bush administration has alienated most of Europe's leaders and therefore there will be considerable behind-the-scenes support for a Kerry victory. Kerry's plan to halve the deficit also has substantial appeal to Europeans who are concerned about the effects of the growing U.S. budget deficit."

A widely regarded expert on the European Union, Cafruny is the author of A Ruined Fortress: Neoliberal Hegemony and Transformation in Europe, co-edited with Magnus Ryner, July, 2003. He is knowledgeable about all aspects of political, economic, security and foreign policy issues of the EU; Europe's relationship with NATO and the United States.
