Just for the record, and so you can hold me accountable for what I predict, I appeared for about five minutes on Foxbusinessnews with Maria Bartiromo on Thursday (3/28/19). We talked about the trade negotiations in China. I said the spin (‘much progress made’) was pointing towards a settlement, but a deal not a solution. The Chinese will have a hard time accepting a lopsided deal, so there’s still negotiating to do, but the Americans are ready to claim victory for deficit reducing measures. That doesn’t solve the problems that both we and the Europeans are grappling with: safeguarding intellectual property and competing with State enterprises. Only a united effort, led by the US, could really solve the issues with China.
Fox didn’t put up a clip –too much political and GDP news– but it was fun and interesting to me and I hope useful to the audience.
