It is misguided for the United States to waste resources targeting allied economies like the EU, and the recent announcement that the EU will allow the import of more American beef is certainly a step in the right direction. The United States should not seek a fight with its most economically significant trading partner, while at the same time strong-arming a deal with a country notorious for violating trade practices. Rather, the United States should work with the EU to take on China and their unfair trade practices, which would the ever- globalizing economy for years to come. The trilateral dialogue between the United States, EU, and Japan regarding the WTO have potential, but they need to produce tangible results for them to truly be successful. The world continues to become more economically intertwined as each day passes, and as the US-China conflict escalates, more countries will find themselves impacted for better or for worse via supply chains, foreign demand and investment, and insecurity. Countries like Vietnam are doing well for now, but they should tread lightly to avoid the scrutiny of the Office of the US Trade Representative and President Trump, who has shown disdain for countries boasting large trade surpluses with the United States. The EU must continue to encourage the United States and China to resolve their disputes through the World Trade Organization, and it would be wise for the sparring countries to heed caution as their economies begin to feel the strain of the trade conflict. Andrew LaScaleia was an intern in the Global Business and Economics Program.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
