US and China: Economic Powers at Odds

Trade tensions rose sharply in 2018 between the United States and China as both sides imposed steep tariffs on imports of certain goods. The mounting tension between the world’s two largest economies caused global markets to drop, and uncertainty remains as to whether negotiators will be able to break the impasse and end the trade war. What can we expect in 2019 for US-China economic relations? What happens if the United States and China fail to reach a final agreement on trade issues? Join the Council on Global Affairs as trade experts Phil Levy and Derek Scissors discuss the state of trade relations between the United States and China and the implications for the global economy.
