Economic Prospects of USA
The USA, with its GDP of USD 19.4 trillion in 2017, is the largest economy in the world. Tax savings, a consumption-friendly population, foreign trade and investments by domestic and foreign companies continue to fuel the economy. The "America first" campaign and punitive tariffs, or threat thereof, put pressure on key trading partners with the aim of achieving tariff reductions and higher import quotas for American goods in their respective export markets.
The targeted reduction of the US trade deficit will not succeed because of this. The good economic situation will stimulate investment and consumption, which is ultimately expected to lead to a further increase in imports.
