US-China Trade Tensions: Currency War or Cease Fire

US-China Trade Tensions: Currency War or Cease Fire

Stephen Roach.

Luncheon Presentation by Stephen Roach, Non-executive Chairman, Morgan Stanley Asia and Faculty Member, Yale University

In a tough post-crisis era, no economic relationship is more important than that between the United States and China. The US House of Representatives has already passed serious anti-China trade legislation by an overwhelming bi-partisan majority. Now that America's mid-term elections are over, will the Senate follow suit? Will a weakened President Obama allow such a measure to become law? Will this approach work? What does it mean for China, the US and the broader global economy? Is there a more constructive way out?

Stephen Roach is non-executive Chairman of Morgan Stanley Asia, serving as the firm's senior representative to clients, governments and regulators across the region. He is also a member of the faculty of Yale University, with a joint appointment at the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and the School of Management. Prior to his appointment as Asia Chairman in 2007, Roach was Morgan Stanley's Chief Economist, and was widely recognized as one of Wall Street's most influential thought leaders. Roach holds a Ph.D. in economics from New York University and a Bachelor's degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin.
