The US economy is the biggest beneficiary of Europe’s energy crisis, as high gas prices are forcing European companies to relocate their production to the States, according to an article in The Wall Street Journal. The American economy has been among the biggest beneficiaries of Europe’s energy crisis. Faced with high gas prices, European companies producing steel, fertilizers and other commodities are gradually moving their operations to the US, where they are attracted by more stable energy prices and government support. While fluctuating energy prices and supply chain problems threaten Europe with what “some economists warn could be a new era of deindustrialization,” the US government has approved a slew of measures to stimulate industrial production, the WSJ notes. As a result, company executives say the balance is increasingly tilting in favor of the United States, especially for those companies involved in the implementation of projects for the production of chemicals, batteries and other energy-intensive products.
