Concept of trade war between USA and China.

As I mentioned last week, we’ll be running a few interviews in Economy & Markets in advance of the Irrational Economic Summit. Which this year is taking place October 10-12 at the National Harbor in Washington, D.C. (Find more info and ticket details here.)

Today, Dent Research Senior Research Analyst Dave Okenquist sits down with Gordon Chang, a featured speaker. Gordon is a writer, pundit, author, and lawyer, and a renowned expert on China and the country’s relationship with the United States. Which, let’s face it, is no small topic these days as Trump continues to drop tariffs in the Far East power.

Trade Talk with Gordon Chang

The two talked about the current state of Chinese trade – both domestically and internationally – and Xi Jinping’s intention to create a government-run state of trade. Not surprisingly, Chang does not think that China will adhere to any agreement the country makes with Trump’s administration. Which bodes poorly for a negotiation that already appears to be off the rails. Chang also offered his thoughts on the upcoming election in 2020 and what it means for international trade.

We’re excited to host him in Washington in October. And stay tuned for more from Dave and our featured speakers. On Wednesday, we’ll host an interview with David Stockman, Director of the Office of Management and Budget during the Reagan years and our keynote speaker at the Irrational Economic Summit next month.

He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni.
