Sarasota financial advisor: Don’t panic over trade tariffs!

Trade Tensions

SARASOTA (WWSB) - The President and CEO of one of Sarasota’s largest financial firms says it is important not to get caught up in concerns about a trade tariff war with China.

“If you’re sitting there and you read just the headlines, it looks like a cannon ball shot across the bow of the ship. In essence what it is, is just a shot in a longer term negotiation. I think it was long overdue to negotiate with some trading partners. The U.S. --- in terms of being a world partner -- has given up more than it has gotten in the last few years," Mousseau said.

Mousseau said neither the U.S. or China wants a full-scale trade war.
