Ian Katz quoted in Morning Money

"Trump's biggest economic risk" by Ben White and Mary Lee

Ian Katz was quoted in the March 20th edition of Politico's Morning Money, written by Ben White and Mary Lee.

White and Lee write: 

REALITY SETTING IN? – Cap Alpha's Ian Katz: "There had been hope among foreign governments that while Trump tweets about unfair trade deals, in real life his front-line officials, like ... Mnuchin, would lay down a more concilatory policy.

"Those hopes were largely dashed over the weekend. To be sure, Trump believes in setting down a harsh opening line and then negotiating from there, and Mnuchin was following that approach."
