Trade War with China. You will get your last chance to complete one of your required two op-ed grades this week by answering the question: “Should the USA raise tariffs and engage in a ‘trade war’ with China?” This was the question that was scheduled at the beginning of the semester, but I realize that it has taken on an entirely new dimension with the outbreak of the Coronavirus, with many people demanding that we reduce our ‘reliance’ on Chinese manufacturing.

Here are some articles and videos of varying opinions you can read to inform yourself of the debate on this topic:
