How Trump’s Trade War Went From Method to Madness
Inside the president’s shift from a grand bargain with China to a small deal.  



Concluding remarks:

Many China experts argue Trump’s approach was too improvised and forced allies into a “you’re either with us or against us” equation that is divorced from the economic and business realities they face. “We’re in a political era of simple solutions at a time when these really require complicated and coordinated actions,” says Jude Blanchette, an expert on Chinese leadership politics at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, a Washington think tank.

Irwin, the Dartmouth professor, says an historical reference point is the War of 1812—which the U.S. waged against an England that was by far its largest trading partner and a predatory one to boot. One slogan touted at the beginning of that conflict, he says, was “on to Canada!”—a promise to annex new territories. When the war ended with a return to preexisting boundaries, the parameters for victory changed: “You know what our slogan was after the war? ‘Not one inch of territory ceded!’ ” Trump and his aides “launched the trade war against China and said, ‘We are going to remake the economy and get the state out of industrial policy and mercantilism,’ ” Irwin says. “We are ending it by saying, ‘They are buying just as much stuff as they did before.’ ”

Somebody tell me how these hearings are evolving in Trump's favour.

So how will markets react?  Markets in typical myopic fashion do love lame duck presidents.  Except this one could continue to create damage through his trade wars.

I reckon at this point, the Chinese have Trump over the proverbial barrel.   Time is on their side.   

Naturally, Trump could always give the Chinese 'good head' and then try to spin the hell out of the results.    My advice?   Mr. President, get down on your knees!

Which deals in particular are you referring to?

No, that was using un-named/loosely affiliated figures to run a shadow foreign policy with the purpose of impacting a foreign government. Completely different.

I don't have a huge problem with that deal. It is kind of swampy, but the guys are energy experts, and Perry is tasked with promoting U.S. companies. Even Ukraine said they had more technical expertise than their competitor. Whether that's true or not, I can't say.

I think it's a little shady, sure. But it doesn't look anywhere near as shady as other deals that've come down the pike.
