Oxford Economics: Trade War Tops List of Global Risks

(edited)

The fate of the global economy lies in the hands of Washington and Beijing. That’s the view of Oxford Economics, which found that the top risk is the trade dispute damping growth. The slowdown in China and a U.S. recession ranked second and third in the Global Risk Survey.

Chees game that is not cheap. US trade war with China risks wider "consequences" and should be settled at the World Trade Organisation. Maybe...

Their mistake. Wynn has cancer and is a big supporter but he and his wife understand what is at stake.
