In our inaugural webcast, Bart van Ark, chief economist of The Conference Board in New York, and Steve Odland, CEO of the Committee for Economic Development in Washington, D.C., along with other guest experts, will discuss the upcoming US Presidential election and its global ramifications, not only for politics and policy, but for business as well.
- The people the new president surrounds himself with will shape the future of US-China business relations. Who are they and what do we know about their thinking?
- China’s treatment of Norway, South Korea, and Japan during recent politically motivated economic disputes is instructive for understanding how Beijing may respond to provocations from Washington. Foreign MNCs, especially US brands, should catalog their potential risk exposures stemming from China’s formal and informal retaliatory tools and make appropriate preparations.
- Analyzing President Trump’s pre-inauguration Twitter statements on China may be one lens for assessing future policy directions.
China Center Quick Note: The US election-an unexpected de-stabilizer
17 November, 2016
- Donald Trump’s likely behavior toward China is almost entirely unknowable; until more of his intentions are clarified MNC leaders will need to adjust to a period of persistent uncertainty.
- The outcome of US elections have further increased the level of uncertainty about the fate of the global economy, but bottom line growth results do not look very different from what The Conference Board projected before November 8th. Tax cuts and investment in infrastructure may provide some growth upside to the US economy in the short-term, but their impact will most likely be small.
