Abstract

An impending trade war between US and China, the world’s two largest economies can cause insurmountable consequences of unfathomable magnitude. It can cause distortions in the complex web of interconnected commodity and value chains sprawled across the boundaries, ultimately leading to suboptimal social welfare of the international community. The present paper intends to provide an overview of the US-China trade imbalance and resulting trade tensions that it begets .The paper analyses various reasons for the US- China trade competition and its implications on world trade quoting world bank data from 1992-2016 and concludes by proposing the likelihood of not getting the scenario escalated.
