Signs that the problems facing the world economy are more complex and intractable than they might immediately appear

A clear signal from the bond market that investors are pessimistic about the economy’s longer-term prospects.

In a span of less than 24 hours, developments in Washington and Wall Street have sent a vivid message: The world is ambling toward an economic morass of the sort that no mere presidential tweet can fix.

of market turbulence, the shorthand explanation has been that it is a result of the trade war.

But this is about something more consequential than a 10 percent tariff on iPhones. It’s really about the widening schism between the world’s two largest economies — one that cannot be reversed with a concession on tariffs by the president or with some soybean purchases by the Chinese. This clash is increasingly becoming part of the landscape that every global business must navigate.

And indeed, through the first half of the year, falling business investment was a drag on American economic growth.

But events this month signal that the problems facing the world economy are more complex and intractable than the immediate reaction to President Trump’s trade war de-escalation might suggest. A tactical retreat here and there won’t solve the deeper problems hanging over the world economy.
