Why The US Tech Industry May Soon Face A Crisis

Tensions between the US and China have escalated further within the span of a few days. Amidst reports that President Trump is looking to impose $200 billion more in Chinese imports as early as next week, the world's two largest economies are both on the offense.

The US will be able to put tariffs on up to $500 billion more in Chinese imports, but China's total imports from the US only amount to $150 billion. Additionally, the US stock market reached record highs this year, while China's stock market officially entered a bear market with losses over 20 percent.

But the US has a lot more at stake in the near future. The crown jewel of the markets today, the technology industry, will be most disrupted if a trade dispute goes awry.
