The trade negotiation between the US and China broke down over the weekend. In any kind of negotiations and for success of an agreement, both parties need to come to the table with goodwill. Both parties must walk away with a feeling that each has gained something out of the agreement.
This is made more critical when two nations negotiate. No one country should be made to look inferior in the eyes of her own citizens. Putting politics above all else in negotiations reduces a chance of amicable solution to an agreement.
I hope for common sense to prevail in the trade negotiations between two powerful nations in terms of the economy. When two elephants fight, the grass gets trampled. The rest of the world looks on with trepidations because we are all inter-connected in many ways.
