Ep. 77: The US-China Tariff Battle


A Trade War between the United States and China has dominated headlines and discussions across the world in 2018. Is this really a war? Is it a battle? Do all such metaphors distort discussions on trade? In Episode 77, Anupam Manur and Manoj Kewalramani talk to host Pavan Srinath about how this is really a US-China battle of tariffs and not a trade war.

Anupam Manur and Manoj Kewalramani are fellows at the Takshashila Institution. Anupam is an economist who works on employment, market regulations and trade. Manoj is a China analyst, with a weekly newsletter Eye on China, on Pragati. https://www.thinkpragati.com/category/world/china/
