Recent talk of the United States decoupling from China has raised questions about the likelihood and potential effects of such a possibility. This webinar will discuss what the outcome of the November elections might mean for the future of global trade, investment, and US-China relations. This will be the first of two webinars organized by the Long US-China Institute on the US elections and the future of the trade war.
