According to Taiwan News online, American economist Tyler Cowen said on Monday (July 8) that Taiwan cannot afford to take sides in the U.S.-China trade war, reported Central News Agency.
The publication Business Today (今周刊) invited Tyler Cowen for a panel discussion in Taiwan in which Cowen argued Taiwan may be a loser in the trade dispute between the US and China if they chooe which of the two biggest economic powers to support.
According to Cowen, Taiwan is in a catch-22 situation, Cowen states: “Taiwan is close to China, has made massive investments, and high-income manpower flows into China. On the other hand, China’s increased military deployments in the South China Sea should be a clear sign that China’s intentions are not friendly”.
According to Taiwan News, Tyler Cowen is an economics professor at George Mason University and serves as general director of George Mason’s Mercatus Center, a university research center that focuses on the market economy.
