Turnkey Tech Investing: August 2019 Market Brief

Geopolitics, tweets, Fed, trade wars, recessions, yield curves, and other noise drove summer-like volumes and choppiness across the global markets.

Is “National Security” Trump’s Excuse for a Trade War?

President Trump has finally delivered on his promise of trade protectionism. But by promising to impose tariffs on steel and aluminum imports on “national security” grounds, President Trump addresses a problem that doesn’t exist—and creates a host of new ones. Several notable economists think the proposed tariffs of 10% on aluminum and 25% on steel will, at least to some extent, hurt—not help—US manufacturing by triggering declines in orders for critical investments such as roboti...
