Wow amazing podcast with great,balanced views on the China tradewar. I agree that it's unlikely to end anytime soon now that's it's entrenched as a sovereignty issue.

We can hope, but Trump does not actually seem to understand how tariffs work.

This guy's understanding of the Chinese seems to be far less than what is required for somebody to try to speak authoritatively on them. He speaks in such general, vague terms, a clue he isn't very well versed. What's more, these generalizations don't mesh with my understanding of Chinese history. He just sounds like a pundit repeating the ignorant party line.

Christopher Donaghue As an educated Chinese citizen and someone who grew up in China, I find most of his descriptions of China to be accurate.

it's high quality when compared to Indonesian steel. Not even close to Canadian or US steel.

Peter seems confused about the reasoning of the steel worker that liked the tarrifs. It's basicly putting our market through chemo treatment, the problem is it eats away at other parts of the market as well.
