Uncertainty On Trade Is Killing American Businesses

quoting Steven J. Davisvia National Interest
Sunday, June 30, 2019

Presidents Donald Trump and Xi Jinping have backed away from the escalating U.S.-China trade war by agreeing to restart negotiations between their two countries at the G20 summit. Trump held off additional tariffs on Chinese goods and Xi agreed to buy more U.S. agricultural products. No formal joint statement spelling out the details of how the negotiations will move forward was provided, and given the rocky history of past negotiations, the future path of trade policy between the two countries remains in a fog. This uncertainty, as well as uncertainty with America's other trading partners, is a nightmare that has not yet ended for businesses engaged in international trade.

President Xi Of China Remains An Enigma

quoting Elizabeth Economyvia IDN-InDepthNews
Tuesday, June 25, 2019

Xi Jinping, president of China, remains an enigma. You watched him on television reviewing the dancing in Pyongyang in the company of Kim Jong-un and his face is near to expressionless when in repose. He doesn’t stand like an arrogant man and we recall that time when he went out to eat in a noodle cafe he joined the back of the queue. His face doesn’t look hard, as did Hitler’s or Stalin’s or Donald Trump’s and Boris Johnson’s do today.
