Full Description

The multifront trade war, which started with solar panels and washing machines, quickly expanded to additional battles. Retaliatory tariffs were imposed, and the flow of global trade the world once knew was changed. Headlines reporting the China tariffs "on hold," "truces announced," or threats of additional tariffs being imposed feed the uncertainty, which roils markets to historic highs and dramatic selloffs.

So how can one get a sense of the true status of trade and the good faith being pledged by countries like China?

Through the trade flows!

With 90 percent of the world's economy moved by maritime transport, the ocean highway is the best way for anyone to gauge the status of trade talks as well as monitor the flow of trade. Lori Ann LaRocco takes readers inside the world of global trade and shows us: Containers and tankers don't lie.

This new book cuts through the political rhetoric and reminds us just how dangerous for the world economy and security a continuing trade war could be. Read the facts and learn some of the strategies business leaders are employing to navigate the trade wars.
