Importance The article examines the approach to evaluating the level of the U.S. economic security as part of the U.S. involvement in the Trans-Pacific Partnership. I also review how the U.S. economic security might change during the 2007–2009 financial and economic crisis and onward, assuming that, as a multilateral agreement, the TPP reflects regionalization processes in Asia Pacific.
Objectives The research represents a comparative evaluation of the economic security in the USA and the TPP member countries as a result of crisis-management and post-crisis measures undertaken by respective governments and central banks.
Methods The research substantiates the approach to evaluating the U.S. economic security from external and internal threats as part of various forms of the national economy security during the globalization.
Results I propose my own approach to a comparative evaluation of changes in the economic security of the USA and TPP countries as part of anti-crisis and post-crisis measures undertaken by respective governments and central banks.
Conclusions and Relevance The U.S. economic security from external and internal threats can be represented as multiplicands describing the protection of its national security as a result of the economic patronage of the federal government and Federal Reserve System. I conclude that the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership Agreement will allow to change the economic security level of its members.
