  • TRADE WAR Neither Xi nor Trump will back down

This was two days after the US released a list of 1,300 products it proposed hitting with tariffs, totaling about $50 billion in trade.

"If dramatic changes in its trade policy regime aren't made, China's approach to seizing advantage in the marketplace will put USA businesses at a competitive disadvantage, threatening the long-term prosperity, economic growth and job creation here at home", he said.

We're in Round 3 of the mini-trade war that has already begun: The U.S. last month announced tariffs on imports of steel and aluminum, in part targeting China.

Re "Econometer: A trade war a good thing for U.S.?"

But the result left both clubs in the same positions in the Premier League table, with Arsenal sixth and Stoke second bottom. Eriksen's equalizer came in first-half stoppage time - a powerful, swerving strike from 25 yards.

The U.S. companies most at risk include Boeing, which a year ago sold one-fourth of its commercial airplanes to China, and several auto makers.

"Tomorrow the president will announce the actions he has chose to take based on USTR's 301 investigation into China's state-led, market-distorting efforts to force, pressure, and steal US technologies and intellectual property", White House official Raj Shah said in an emailed statement ahead of the announcement. China's tariffs, if enacted, would double the current levy on USA cars, to 50 percent.

One industry that was spared in the first round is apparel.

Put simply, a tariff is a tax typically imposed on imported goods. The central bank official also noted that the U.S. labor market appeared close to full employment, which could spell an inflationary period that would elevate price levels. More tariffs are potentially on the way, too.

The public has until May 11 to submit comments on the proposed list of USA tariffs, with a hearing scheduled for May 15.
