The current gridlock in US-China relations raises questions about how the two countries will manage to move forward. Although the US and China have been at odds in the past, there’s a sense relations have reached a new low. It’s not just about the ongoing trade war.

What are the ultimate implications for the global financial system and geopolitics?
