Two Cents Worth – a podcast: Tip-toeing around the US China trade standoff


A few weeks old now (24052019) this podcast made some good points. There are real concerns about where both China under Xi and the USA under Trump are going on trade. In the short term Trump is in my view the most dangerous. However, in the medium and long-term well that is finely balanced. Bernard Hickey reports

Imagine you’re Prime Minister. It’s 2025. You’ve got two calls on the line to your ninth floor office in the Beehive. One is from President for Life Xi Jinping. The other is from President for life Donald Trump.

They both want New Zealand to join their side in what has become a new cold war.

What do you do?
