Trump Trade Tariffs US War with China Mega-trend Impact on Stock Markets

Stock-Markets / China US Conflict Aug 02, 2019 - 05:27 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Stock-Markets

For some reason there are still mainstream media journalists out there going on about how China is winning the trade war against the US. Perhaps they just want to pump out any propaganda that hurts trumps re-election prospects? Or more likely are clueless automatons whose primary purpose is to regurgitate the editorial line of media out fits they represent. Anyway they are still just as wrong as they have been for the duration of the Trump presidency.


First a reminder that the trade war is just one element of an unfolding multi-decade conflict between the emerging wannabe superpower China, attempting to break out of its box, against the worlds existing super power, the United States. And just to be clear there is no room for peaceful coexistence, that's not in the nature of super powers, instead they always seek full spectrum supremacy, economic, technological and military. As was the case with the Soviet Union, economic destruction that has left Russia a mere shell of its former self. A rust bucket of a former super power with rusting fleets of ships, now only able to express it's power through the hacking poorly protected desktop PC's or sending its military to places where they are unlikely to encounter much resistance such as Syria.

A reminder that China is busy building the infrastructure for it's Empire right across the world, fundamental to which is the One Belt Road and deep sea ports. That includes nations such as Pakistan (Gwadar), which just as the British Empire went from a series of trading companies to outright colonialism and theft of territory then so will China's trade roads and ports form the basis of a hoped for future Chinese military empire.

None of this is new of what Trump has done and what China is doing in the South China Sea, as in two pieces of in-depth analysis I set forth what I expected to follow in the US China War Mega-trend posted BEFORE Trump took office which are just as valid today as when first posted for the TREND firmly remains in the forecast direction! Trade, Economic, Cyber, Market, Corporate, Territory, Nuclear!

The Trump Reset - 2 The Putin Doctrine

The Trump trade war with China is now into it's third year, and still the mainstream press remains largely clueless at to what is actually going on and its consequences, which is why they keep getting caught out by surprise announcements that the Trade War and the likes of the North Korea conflict have NOT BEEN RESOLVED! Because they CANNOT be resolved given the mega-trend fundamentals at work of an emerging Super Power seeking to displace the existing Super Power.

Trump Reset: US War With China, North Korea Nuclear Flashpoint

Whilst today the talk is about trade wars, unfortunately it is highly probable that sooner or later we will see military conflict between the two powers, the primary trigger for which will be when China starts to rival the US in terms of military power, that the US will likely seek to pre-empt.

US / China Trade War

My consistent view right from the outset has remained that China will LOSE the Trump Trade War.

6th July 2018 - Trump Destroying US Empire in Trade War Against China, Europe and Canada

The strong statements out of China of tit for tat responses to US Tariffs should be taken with a giant pinch of salt for the performance of the Shanghai index makes it crystal clear of who is the big loser in this Trade War. China is and WILL continue to LOSE this Trade War! So it is highly likely there will at some point be a Trade War induced financial panic in China.

The following graph illustrates the huge trade imbalance that continues to persist between the US and China of over $300 billion that has had a devastating effect on the US jobs market as it converts into the US effectively employing upwards of a net 25 million Chinese workers, an imbalance that the Trump Presidency has been attempting to address through trade tariffs with limited results to date against what had been a run away trend.

The current state of the trade war has the US levying tariffs of 25% on $250 billion of Chinese imports, whilst China has retaliated with tariffs of 25% on $110 billion of US imports.

Whilst the mainstream media is once more convincing themselves that a resolution to the trade war could be just around the corner. However, Trump's latest tweets reveal someone who is reveling in the trade conflict. And likely aiming to use it as a corner stone of his re-election campaign.

Therefore rather than a resolution to the US China Trade war, instead it is highly probable that Trump will slap a new round of tariffs on the remaining $320 billion or so of tariff free Chinese imports so as to appeal to his voter base in the run up to the 2020 election.
