Is Donald Trump right to impose tariffs on Beijing for lack of trading reciprocity? Is it true that tariffs have boosted the US economy? And what are the consequences of American tariffs for the European Union, Italy in particular? Against the backdrop of a stalemate in the US-China negotiations and President Trump recent announcement to impose an additional 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of Chinese imports starting Sept. 1, ISPI analyses the motivations and reasons behind Trump’s tariffs, their effects and their most controversial aspects.
On July 20th 1969, the dominoes were lined up for the first moon landing in the history of humankind. Impressive new technologies (illustrated by the Saturn V rocket launcher, still the most powerful ever built), an unconditional trust culture within NASA, political commitment and justification, and personal motivation of those involved were key components for the success of the mission. With 400,000 people working on the project, it took the NASA less than two years to go from Apollo 1’s deadly fires to 11’s moon landing.

If you’re looking for ‘big bang reforms’, don’t look for it in Budget 2019.
The current armed conflict in Libya has deep domestic, regional, and international roots. The April 4 attack on the capital by of Khalifa Haftar’s Libyan National Army (LNA) has highlighted the failure of international mediation. A return to the negotiating table seems unlikely in the near future, as the parties of the conflict remain convinced that military victory is achievable. In particular, Haftar’s recent actions suggest a dangerous upsurge in violence and material damage may be on the horizon.
For a city of only seven million, and one with a high level of development and wealth, Hong Kong has proved a hard place to govern since its reversion to Chinese sovereignty in 1997. An unknown quantity because of the lack of any proper democracy under British rule, we are now much more knowledgeable about what Hong Kong public opinion might be. It can be captured in one word: complex. Hong Kong in 2019 is divided, and frequently erupts in angry outbursts of protests.
