Poll Results: an ‘order’ to avoid China
Here's how readers responded to a presidential order on international trade.
On August 23, President Donald Trump published a string of tweets that touched on international trade. Here is part of that message:
The idea that the president can make such on “order” very quickly generated criticism. President Trump later responded to critics by pointing to the Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977. “Case closed!” he tweeted.
HBSDealer’s poll question asked — what’s your reaction to this presidential order to look for alternatives to Chinese trade?
Respondents whose companies have business dealings with China were less likely to respect the order than those whose companies did not have similar ties to China.
Here are the results among companies with business ties to China:
• “I dismiss the order:” 125 votes
• “I respect the order:” 91 votes
Here are the results among companies that DO NOT have business ties to China:
• “I respect the order:” 77 votes
• “I dismiss the order:” 42 votes
