Europe matters. It matters even more these days, as the world watches closely Eurozone member states governments' efforts to prevent the Greek drama turn into a European tragedy. Across the Atlantic, an uneasy United states is urging its European allies to remedy the Continent's ills and prevent them from infecting other countries. Aloof yet entangled, Captain America still remains as a beacon of hope for the European governments. As always, it can generate optimism and instill hopes in European capitals. In fact, it is once again the engine behind the European integration with the new transatlantic trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). The following article draws lessons for the new transatlantic trade cooperation from the motives and interests underlying US support for the process of European integration against the backdrop of the Marshall plan. It does so by examining the European Recovery Program from two contending yet complimentary perspectives.
