The Trade War of 2018: Report From the Front

With the U.S. on the brink of a global trade war, importers and exporters are asking: Is there method to President Trump’s madness?

The Trade War of 2018: Report From the Front

The past few weeks have seen a dizzying series of actions by President Trump against what he considers to be unfair treatment against the U.S. by China, Canada, Mexico and Europe. His statements have, of course, been met by threats of retaliation by those valued trading partners. With billions of dollars’ worth of international goods at stake, is the U.S. about to launch a full-scale trade war? On this episode, we get a bird’s-eye view of the global trade landscape from attorney William Perry of Harris and Bricken. He reviews recent actions taken by the Administration on aluminum and steel, autos, agricultural goods and technology, among other products. And he addresses the possibility of whether the U.S. economy, which has shown remarkable strength in recent years, will be seriously damaged by the fallout from the rapidly escalating dispute. As Perry puts it: “It’s a true mess right now.” Hosted by Bob Bowman, Managing Editor of SupplyChainBrain.
