Investors on Tuesday mostly tuned out the latest escalation in the trade war between the world’s two largest economies, with markets around the world climbing slightly as President Donald Trump announced new tariffs on China and Beijing responded in kind.
"Trade War Escalates. Stock Markets Shrug. Here’s Why." is from the September 18, 2018 U.S. section of The New York Times. It was written by Matt Phillips, Jack Ewing and Alexandra Stevenson and narrated by Keith Sellon-Wright.
