Mohamed El-Erian: What the Market Hasn't Realized About Trade War

El-Erian also sees opportunity in emerging markets

July 11, 2018 | About:

Mohamed El-Erian, chief economic adviser at Allianz, gave his view on the state of the U.S. trade war with China on Tuesday.

"What the market has priced in is the following: that the tit-for-tat continues, but ultimately it doesn't lead to a full-blow trade war, that we get still free but fairer trade. Is there a left tail? Sure there is. I think what the market hasn't realized yet is that there is a right tail ... when people realize that at the end of the day, the U.S. will prevail, because it is a less open economy, because it's a more dynamic economy, that ultimately you may end up in a position where the U.S. in global economic terms is better off."

El-Erian also forecast that the Federal Reserve will back off of its intention to hike interest rates four times this year and that select emerging markets will become highly attractive.
