Trade Talks Episode 96: Trump's Next China Tariffs and Fears in the Global Economy

Keynes and Bown discuss the Trump administration’s announcement to impose new tariffs totaling $300 billion of Chinese imports split across September 1 and December 15, 2019. Each tariff list targets a different set of consumer goods for the first time, and yet their rollout also avoids import surges associated with peak American shopping seasons. They also describe new evidence of heightening concerns of conditions in the US and global economy.
