The CCP has been waging a “cold war” against the United States for decades, prompting American response in recent years.

SinoInsider believes that the PRC and the U.S. will engage in decisive battle in 2019 to avoid a Waterloo and secure the future.

This report is based on our research and understanding of the macro situation. Our track record includes anticipating China’s economic, political, and geopolitical trends with a very high degree of accuracy (85%) in 2018. We are also directionally accurate in predicting developments in Sino-U.S. relations and other international matters throughout 2018.

As Sino-U.S. relations become more tumultuous in 2019, businesses, investors, and governments must grasp what is at stake to sidestep risks and seize opportunities.
