Time Magazine considers new cold war

Even Time Magazine is considering the implications of a new Cold War between the US and China. I’d say that some of Ian Bremmer’s conclusions, like there will be tit for tat trade tariffs miss another trend, which is that increasingly US and Chinese companies are positioning themselves to do business independently of each other. This has many implications but one of the further reaching ones is the possibility of a Balkanisation of trade and eventually, if things continue the same way, a Balkanisaton of technology.
