As relations between the worldâs two major economies, the US and China, continue to deteriorate, RTâs Boom Bust talks to Professor Richard Wolff about whatâs really going on.
âWhat weâre seeing is mostly posturing by Mr. Trump for domestic electoral votes,â he says, adding that the US president thinks the bashing of China could gain him some kind of support.
âThis is a way of keeping attention, positioning himself for the American market as a âtough guyâ but for the rest of the world as seeking some kind of accommodation.â
Wolff adds that âOnce the election is over, whoever wins will have to rethink all of this, then weâll see much more clearly how real this is and how much this is a made-for-domestic American market political movie.â
