Professor Arun Sundararajan explains the dynamics involved in the US-China trade war
— October 25, 2018
Excerpt from Marketplace -- "New York University business professor Arun Sundararajan said the U.S. interest is to tax Chinese imports, whether Beijing responds or not. Either way, Washington makes money. 'If China imposes tariffs, the U.S.'s best response is we'll tax your imports as well,' he said. 'If China doesn't, then the best response of the U.S. is also to say, "Well, they're not doing anything. Let me sort of collect from them."'"
