The Bertelsmann Foundation's TTIP Decision Theater is the first-ever web-based, interactive data visualization platform that simulates the impact of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement in the United States.

Set in The McCain Institute for International Leadership’s state-of-the-art Decision Theater in Washington, the platform presents the potential outcomes of an ambitious and fully implemented TTIP at the national level and in each of the 50 states.

It allows users to visualize changes in employment, exports and GDP across 20 sectors, and compares the results to the projected status-quo of the U.S. economy without TTIP from 2017 through 2027.

Using several unique datasets and general equilibrium modeling, the TTIP Decision Theater presents five unique TTIP frameworks, each with a different level of ambition for the reduction of tariff- and non-tariff barriers.

The platform was designed to promote an impartial and data-driven conversation about the content and potential impact that TTIP can have on the U.S. economy.

The project is based on data provided by Ecorys, a Dutch economic research firm. The TTIP Decision Theater has also been made possible through support from the Embassy of Denmark in Washington.
