Recommendation

America’s and China’s salvos in their trade dispute will not likely escalate into a major conflagration, although the friction will lead to tension and a downbeat economic climate. So say the professionals at the Economist Intelligence Unit in this succinct report. They predict that international trade will slow in 2018 and that other countries will bypass the United States as they seek out more advantageous alliances. getAbstract recommends this plain-language analysis to consumers, executives and investors for its timely treatment of a globally important economic issue.

In this summary, you will learn

  • How trade disputes between the United States and China could work out in the short term,
  • How tariffs could affect global trade and growth, and 
  • What long-term consequences the US actions could have on global institutions and future trade agreements.
