Tonight’s Business/Market/Political Impact Spotlight –

Still from video, posted below.

CNA News is funded by the Singaporean government, says Wikipedia. So, their content is ‘state’ news from China.

The United States announced that it will delay the imposition of new 10% tariffs on Chinese consumer electronics until Dec 15. According to US trade representative Robert Lighthizer, the delay will impact cell phones, laptops, computer monitors, some toys, footwear and clothing. However, Washington is still going ahead with new duties on $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, which will take effect in September.



·        Some influential voices on Wall Street are saying Trump blinked in the latest exchange with China and showed just how much pain the U.S. could tolerate. China may use that to its advantage.

·        “Tell me why Xi should not continue to wait out The World’s Greatest Negotiator, who keeps ‘dealing’ with himself?” says Jim Chanos, founder and managing Partner of Kynikos Associates.

·        Markets rallied on the announcement by the U.S. Trade Representative office that certain items were being removed from the new China tariff list and others would be delayed until mid-December.

What the above doesn’t take into account is the possibility that there is a face-saving move at play that allows China to appear to have a win by having the U.S. acting first to dial back the pressure. Time will tell.

Another possibility is that domestic heat, from farmers and others, may have reached a point that the Trump Administration felt that they had to do something.  If so, that too will be revealed in time.

Decades of failure to look ahead on the U.S.-China trade imbalance and other trade related issues have begun to be addressed by the Trump Administration.  Some jobs and capital are flowing back into the U.S. Will that trend continue? Or will opposition, foreign and domestic press 1600 into kicking the can down the road?

On a closing note, the conditions in Hong Kong may be deteriorating.  See yesterday’s report, linked below, and the video above.
