USA vs China trade war: a game of football

You don’t often get to link trade and sports together but attorney Timothy P. Stratford has done a brilliant job making an apt analogy that the current USA- China trade war is like a game of football.

The key to the analogy and its true brilliance rests in, what kind of football?

Stratford analogy is that:

One team shows up on one side of the field; they are the World Cup champions. And on the other side of the field you have the Super Bowl champions.

They’re both there to play football but they have very different ideas … each team plays a very good game but the rules they play are designed to showcase different skill sets.

“The World Cup football team is very agile, they move very quickly, they adjust rapidly. The American football team is more deliberate — every play is planned, every player on the field has a coordinated role, they wear protective gear.

Brilliant, clear and I think very true.
