Dr. Rasmus reviews events associated with the US-China trade war, from the Shanghai meeting of early August to today’s announcement by Trump that he expects no deal with China. Why China is not manipulating currency but the opposite. Why there’ll now be no further Trump tariff hikes. Why the trade war is really a war over nextgen technology between US and China and only part of a growing economic war between the two countries. Rasmus discusses global central banks’ now cutting rates in a ‘race to the bottom’ anticipating further Fed, ECB and BOJ rate cuts coming. The global manufacturing recession now as transmission mechanism to global recession. Europe’s growing economic problems: Recessions in Germany, Italy and UK now. Brexit will exacerbate. Italy will break EU fiscal rules after elections. Rasmus refocuses on the growing problems in India, soon the world’s 5thlargest economy: bank problems, looming defaults, currency decline. Modi’s current distraction from problems with nationalist offensive in Kashmir. (Check out Dr. Rasmus’ latest update on the US-China trade-tech war at jackrasmus.com blog).
