EMPIRICAL ENQUIRY ON THE US INCLINATION OF TRADE AND INVESTMENT WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO TRADE WAR AND COVID-19.
In the last few decades, the U. S-China economic ties have shown significant growth. For instance, the total U.S-China trade rose from $ 2billion to $497 billion from 1979 to 2010. Many economists and scholars argue that expanding economic ties with China have continued to expose the U.S. manufacturing firms to greater "unfair" competition from inexpensive Chinese firms. They argue that this has led to the relocation of U.S. production facilities to China, resulting in significant losses of U.S. manufacturing jobs. There have been differences in opinions of dealing with China on relevant economic issues (Crabb, 2019).

The paper tries to make a primary Empirical Investigation on the said issues.
