Title: Weathering Trade Troubles: Lessons from the Art of War

Summary: When it comes to international trade, the words of Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu seem more apt today than ever: “In the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity.” For middle-market companies, these are chaotic times indeed. A great deal is in flux. The North American Free Trade Agreement is being recast. The United States has placed tariffs on steel and aluminum, sparking retaliation and trade tensions with everyone from China to the European Union. At such times, Sun Tzu’s “The Art of War” advises us to learn more about our opponent and to become more self-reflective, too. With that in mind, executives should take a hard look at their business to fortify themselves in this uncertain environment.
