Report summary

US trade policy has been quiet since President Trump withdrew from the TPP in late January. That could all change following the confirmation of Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. If the target is economies with which the US runs a large trade deficit China stands out. The stakes are high but taking action against Chinese imports is not easy. The likeliest outcome is one where no one wins.
