Abstract: It has been observed that the world is moving towards the deglobalisation era and developed nations have marked its beginning. The USA has adopted the policy leading to the dismantling of the globalisation period. In the current study, SAP-LAP framework has been developed to understand the variables that have brought the change in paradigm towards deglobalisation in the USA. SAP-LAP is used to analyse the determinants of 'situation', 'actors' and 'processes' in the case study of the USA. This modelling will help in listing key learning issues and suggest actions to be taken to improve select performance areas. The integrated framework is discussed using cross-interaction matrices. With the literature review, it has been found that the factors that have brought about globalisation are now behind its backlash.

Keywords: USA; globalisation; deglobalisation; SAP-LAP; wage reduction; migration; job loss; trade deficit.
