Kudlow speaking LIVE: We are draining the international global trading rules swamp

White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow is speaking live in a fireside chat on the U.S. economy and the trade policy at the Peterson Institute for International Economics.

Considering the recent return of risk-off on the back off the USA's continued pursuit of international trade reform, this is extremely harmonious to the current market theme and should be noted - The U.S. is not about to wrap things up and we are n for a long ride - supporting the upside in such assets as gold.

Kudlow says that the overall economic burden of the trade war will shift more to China than U.S.
