“I think the current administration had us all sort of on the track of, ‘We’re going to take an extreme position then we’re going to kind of, you know, negotiate back from that and just get a better deal done,'” Jason Bloom, Director of Global Macro ETF Strategy for Invesco, said at the Charles Schwab IMPACT 2018 conference. “That has played out with Mexico, Taiwan, Canada, and we’re on that track with the E.U., but a lot of people have said, ‘What’s our posture going to be with China?”
Bloom argued that China will be a significant long-term economic competitor to the U.S. and that will not change any time soon. The China and U.S. tensions is not some short-term issue that can be fixed overnight.
