TRADE WARS AFTER CORONAVIRUS: economic, political and theoretical implications
5th October – 5th December 2020
- Will free trade be still strongly promoted through international financial institutions (IFI) policies?
- Can any multilateral agency now take retaliation against any country that goes against the spirit of existing free trade agreements?
- If the profit squeeze in the US comes at the same time as US technological leadership is at stake, how much at stake is it?
- Can China actually replace the US as the economic leader in the world? If not, what does prevent it? If so, what is required? How can the US prevent this from happening?
- Does the winner of the trade war keep the hegemony as its prize? Or, are we in a new situation of shared/partial hegemonies?
- What are the lessons learnt from the US trade war against Japan?
- What is the difference between this trade war and the Japanese one of the 1980’s?
