I'm with @Speed and @talaraedokko on this one. Let them go at it while the rest of the world watches.

I don’t care. Just don’t let it escalate to military war.

I'd be interested in seeing a full blown trade war with 100% of all their goods being tariffed between these two countries. Of course, I only say this since I'm not living in either of these countries but I would be interested in seeing real world results of a long-time hypothetical situation.

If I were a US business that used Chinese imports, perhaps, maybe, I'd pre-purchase inventory for the fall or even next year.

Perhaps.

I buy natural gas/heating oil for the year in the summer to avoid the higher prices demanded in the winter months. Same idea.

The best answer would be for China to open their markets to the world for fair competition and to go after local companies violating intellectual property, trademark and copyright laws.
