Poll Question: Trade Dispute Blowback

By HBSDealer Staff - 05/13/2019
On Friday, the United States raised tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods to 25%. On Monday, China returned serve, upping its tariffs on U.S.-made goods to 20% - 25%, effective June 1.

Companies that compete against Chinese imports stand to gain from the escalating trade tension, but economists warn that the economy could take a hit. Negotiations are continuing as the U.S. draws up the papers to raise tariffs on the remaining goods imported from China.
