What are people talking today
- The Great Decoupling
Keith Johnson & Bobbie Gramer | Foreign Policy
"Washington is pressing for a post-pandemic decoupling from China. But the last big economic split brought on two world wars and a depression. What’s in store this time? In the end, U.S. efforts to roll back the one part of globalization that it can somewhat control—global supply chains and trade—will be at best a partial and imperfect solution that will only aggravate the other challenges. Choosing economic decoupling as the answer to today’s problems, said Zoellick, is simply inviting future headaches."
- Ten reasons why a 'Greater Depression' for the 2020s is inevitable
Nouriel Roubini | professor of economics at New York University's Stern School of Business
"Unfortunately, even if the Greater Recession leads to a lacklustre U-shaped recovery this year, an L-shaped “Greater Depression” will follow later in this decade, owing to 10 ominous and risky trends."
- Joe Biden's Attempt to Out‐Hawk GOP on China Is Futile
Ted Galen Carpenter | Cato Institute
"Trying to out‐hawk the GOP on China is not only futile, it has the potential to exacerbate serious public hostility toward Beijing and push the United States into a full‐blown cold war with that country."
- Why Trump's threats to 'punish' China over Covid-19 ring hollow
Chen Zhao | founding partner and chief strategist of Alpine Macro
"There are a few options that the Trump administration can use to go after China: trade, finance and technology. However, each will also involve enormous cost to the US. Trump has threatened to reimpose tariffs on Chinese goods, but as the US-China trade feud has shown, higher tariff rates are not a bonanza for the US economy."
