Return of the Trade Wars
Who would have thought that a hashtag could trigger a war?
"Trade wars are good, and easy to win," writes U.S President Donald Trump on Twitter. However, Trump is quite alone with this opinion in the professional world.

What really stands behind the astonishing renaissance of customs barriers and protectionism?
