Newest US tariffs could reduce China’s growth by up to .5%

If the threatened tariffs on $200 billion of Chinese goods are implemented, economists predict that they could cut China’s economic growth by up to .5 percentage points. China’s pace of growth has continued to slow, and such a reduction could push it well underneath its 6.5% growth projection for 2018. It is uncertain whether or how China will respond to the rounds of tariffs, and what impact that could have on its own economy, as well as on the global and American economies.
