Trade Wars Are a Possibility

Trade Wars Are a Possibility

  • Trade Wars are a possibility.
  • The U.S. imposed tariffs on aluminum and steel imports.
  • Tariffs have caused global markets to react negatively.
  • Trade policy should be treated as game theory – the objective is to optimize the total for all participants. Free trade does just that. Tariffs do not.
  • We hope the tariffs will be reversed.
  • If we see retaliation from other countries, we can expect a decline in trade, slowdown in growth, and a negative reaction from stock markets.
