The Heat

The trade dispute between the US and China takes another turn on Sunday with a major new round of US tariffs.Billions more in Chinese goods will be hit with tariffs on September 1st. This time around the target is consumer products. US President Donald Trump already plans to further increase import duties on $250 billion of Chinese products in October. Meanwhile, China has announced that it will introduce a smaller set of tariffs on US goods. And, as all of this plays out, there is potential for more talks between the sides in Washington.
