A. Controlling + economists: wrong subject --> out
B. Controlling + the diminished economic leverage of the U.S: same --> out
C. "it" is linking to "economists" with a modifier for Europe in between : wrong and pronoun is really far away from its antecedent
D."it" is linking to "economists": wrong pronoun even if the pronoun was correct the modifer would make no sense
E. All modifiers are correct: good

The question stems that have commas are often modifiers related.

B,C and D all modifying wrong things.
Left between A and E.
In A it's saying that the economists control everything. So wrong.

E wins.
