Michigan could lose 1 House seat, census estimate shows
DETROIT – Preliminary numbers from the U.S. census indicate Michigan could lose clout in Washington, D.C. and in the Electoral College. While Michigan’s population grew about 1% since the last census in 2010, the national average for population growth was 6% this year. READ: US population growth smallest in at least 120 yearsThe final census numbers are not official, but the preliminary numbers put Michigan’s population at 9,986,857 versus the 9,884,116 in 2010. Detroit’s population estimate for 2020 is 670,031 people -- down from 713,898 -- which means it’s probable the congressional map will be redrawn and Michigan will lose a seat in the House of Representatives, lowering the number of Michigan representatives from 14 to 13. The loss of congressional seat also means a reduction of electoral votes for the state, from 16 to 15.
Morgan Stanley: If the trade war escalates, a recession will be here in 9 months
If the U.S. continues to raise a wall of tariffs on Chinese goods in the coming months and China responds, expect a global recession in three quarters, Morgan Stanley said Monday. "As we view the risk of further escalation as high, the risks to the global outlook are decidedly skewed to the downside," Morgan Stanley chief economist Chetan Ahya said. The firm believes a global recession will come in about nine months if the trade war further escalates through the U.S. raising tariffs to 25% "on all imports from China for 4-6 months," Ahya said. These new tariffs "raise downside risks significantly," Ahya said. "But these measures, while helpful in containing downside risks, will not be enough to drive a recovery until trade policy uncertainty dissipates."cnbc.com
China reportedly halts US agricultural imports in retaliation for Trump's tariff increase
China has halted imports of U.S. agricultural products, Bloomberg News reported, citing people familiar with the situation. This hits at a sensitive issue for President Donald Trump. The president claimed that he had secured large quantities of agricultural purchases when he met with President Xi Jinping at the G-20 summit in June. He later accused China of not following through with those purchases, leading him to announce on Thursday 10% tariffs on the remaining $300 billion in Chinese imports. Trump has ordered a $16 billion aid package to U.S. farmers, an important group for him politically, to help them during the trade battle.cnbc.com
