Or will they ‘fight to the bitter end’ to defend their respective nation’s self-interests?

If you have been reading the stream of reports and analyses of the US-China trade talks, you may have come to the same conclusion that the author of US vs. China: From Trade Wars to Reciprocal Deal : that the trade talks have begun looking more like a sports game, with reporters selecting their teams–either cheering for Xi to win or hoping for a Trump victory–with many viewing it as zero-sum game, where the winner takes all. The general sentiment in itself has sparked much bitterness between US and Chinese trade officials as the two sides felt like they were engaged in a death match to defend their respective nation’s self-interests.
In a battle of supremacy setting the stage over which nation will emerge as the leading global superpower, there’s plenty at stake over who will score victory in the ultimate ‘Game of Thrones’ trade wars match-up. If Trump prevails that will ensure the US stays on top as a world leader, but if Xi triumphs, China could become the most dominant country in our globe.
Yet the trade wars could avoid a ‘zero sum game’ scenario, in which Trump and Xi could become friends again as they pave the path for a fair and reciprocal trade deal on the horizon.
Written from a neutral perspective, US vs. China provides a definitive account on the history, cultural backgrounds and reasons for why the two countries had entered into the trade wars and how the conflicts had nearly caused a global financial crises to ensue as both national leaders were refusing to budge.
This book explains Trump and Xi and their policies in a fair manner and to bridge gaps of misunderstandings between the two sides. It gives deeper explanations of the Chinese and Trump mindsets that have often been overlooked. Through this book, readers can learn how–despite the chaos and ugly disputes that have been sparked–the two great nations could join hands to embark on peace and prosperity together for the betterment of our world.
