A very brief overview on the causes of the US-China trade conflict

Current developments against the backdrop of the coronavirus pandemic suggest that the trade conflict between the United States and China will continue. The conflict has a longer history. I think that there are three main causes for the trade conflict between the United States and China (the so-called “Phase 1” agreement signed in January 2020 brought some temporary relief, but I fear that the conflict will get more severe again in the coming months): (1) political-economic motives, (2) dissatisfaction with the World Trade Organization (WTO), (3) and reasons of political power.
