Director’s Cut: Evolution of US-China relations amid trade-tariff conflict
Bruegel director Guntram Wolff and Bruegel fellow Uri Dadush welcome William Alan Reinsch, senior adviser and Scholl chair in international business at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, for a discussion of how China-US relations are developing in the context of unfolding trade war.
With President Trump increasing tariffs on the US’ imports from China and China retaliating in kind, the trade dispute between the two countries is escalating quickly.
Here the discussants elaborate on the disruption caused by trade tariffs, the likelihood of China acquiescing to US demands with regard to economic reform, and where the EU might figure in the stand-off.
Guntram Wolff introduces this Director’s Cut of ‘The Sound of Economics’, welcoming Bruegel fellow Uri Dadush as well as William Alan Reinsch, senior adviser and Scholl chair in international business at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.
