The coming trade war, Some thoughts about 2017, Driverless cars

December 24th, 2016 Weekly Overview

In my final overview for the year, a look back at the year that was and a look forward to what 2017 might hold. Could 2017 see a trade war between the US and China? Will housing prices tip over?

And looking back over this year, I believe the most momentous event was not Brexit, or Trump, but an ordinary looking Volvo driving around Pittsburgh.

The TCI office will be closed between Christmas and New Year, so we won’t be publishing next week. My old mate Stephen Koukoulas will fill in for me till January 16 and he’ll get 2017 started with The Spotlight on January 3. Have a great Christmas and New Year, and we’ll see you in 2017.
