  1. H,

    I can’t really tell from the news story, but I think the granularity is important: is the implication that these are conditions that must be met before the negotiations even restart (i.e. at the G-20), or are they just conditions that have to be met to reach the final deal?

    There’s a pretty striking difference between those two, given Trump’s MO of initiate tariffs before negotiations and then keep them on after negotiations as compliance insurance. Less than 0% chance that Trump would fulfill those conditions before restarting the negotiations.

  2. Yeah, no way this will work out. The only question is how high the escalation goes and when it begins.
