Trump Tariffs and Trade Wars - The Airport Economist’s guide to the global economy
American President Donald Trump came to office on the back of a “Put America First” platform of populism and trade protection. And it hasn’t just been trade policy by twitter, in office Trump has made good on his threats, and has imposed import tariffs setting up a trade war not just with China but with allies such as the European Union, Canada and Brazil.
But how sustainable is this trade war and what does it mean for the Americas, Europe, the Middle East and emerging markets? And what does it mean for Australia’s engagement with Asia? Can Australia be the honest broker with Asia, compared to the erratic incumbent in the White House? And how does that affect energy markets and our export outlook for Asia?
Join Tim Harcourt, host of The Airport Economist TV show and podcast series and author of the books on a trip around the global economy. Tim was Chief Economist of Austrade and an economist with the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) and International Adviser to 3 Federal Cabinet Ministers and 2 Premiers.
