The trade war Donald #Trump is waging with #China is shifting to a new phase as each new volley of tariffs pushes the worldโ€™s two biggest economies toward decoupling. Trump unleashed the latest tariffs barrage Monday (Sept 17), provoking a response from China and leaving prospects for a solution to the dispute more distant than ever. As #US demands for #China to rein in industrial policies collide with Beijingโ€™s unwillingness to contemplate change under duress, attention is now shifting to the eventual scale of collateral damage for the world economy.

#Franceโ€™s economy is set to grow 1.6% annually through to 2020 as unemployment steadily falls, the central bank forecast on Friday (Sept 14), trimming slightly its previous growth outlook. The #BankofFrance had previously forecast growth of 1.8% in 2018 and 1.7% in 2019, but said H1 of this year was weaker than anticipated and foreign demand was now expected to be softer than previously expected next year.

France is still lagging on growth because France is still lagging on reforms, according to Bank of France governor Francois Villeroy de Galhau. He added that while France had recently carried out important reforms, especially on training, there remained a lot to do to rein in spending. In the central bankโ€™s outlook, unemployment was seen gradually falling from 9.1% in Q2 to 8.3% by the end of 2020.

President Donald #Trump will impose 10% tariffs on $200bn worth of Chinese imports, and those duties will rise to 25% at the end of the year. The action, announced by the Trump administration Monday (Sept 17), escalates a trade conflict between the world's two largest economies. China has already threatened to retaliate against new trade barriers.

Trump, in a statement, said that the tariffs would rise to 25% on Jan. 1, 2019, adding that 'if #China takes retaliatory action against our farmers or other industries, we will immediately pursue phase three, which is tariffs on approximately $267bn of additional imports.' Trump has previously said that those additional duties are 'ready to go on short notice if I want.'

The U.S.A. is generally incompetent with politics and law, making it an unreliable partner even for its allies. It may be just this administration but they did elect this administration and may do it again. Unreliable is unreliable, no matter if it was against their own principles which they may respect in a good year. If they can't keep their word through different times and different administrations, then obviously we cannot trust them. You never know when the wind changes again.

Ten years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the onset of the #globalfinancialcrisis, much of the industrialized world has yet to fully recover and this will be all too evident at the #EuropeanCentralBankโ€™s policy meeting on Thursday (Sept 6). With some key #eurozoneeconomies still not back to their pre-crisis size despite a decade of stimulus, the central bank is only rolling back support by the smallest of increments and #ECB chief Mario Draghi will once again promise ample help for a long time to come to keep a recovery going.

Growth is undershooting the ECBโ€™s own projections this year and underlying inflation, a key focus for rate-setters, has unexpectedly softened. This suggests that some of the ECBโ€™s new economic projections, due out at the press conference, are at risk of modest cuts.
