Widman: Business Wars Know Only Losers -

German central bank chief Jens Weidmann said on Thursday that the opening of the German economy makes it particularly vulnerable to trade disputes, adding that the country is not sufficiently prepared to challenge digitization and the burdens of aging society.

Commenting on the ongoing trade war between Washington and Beijing, Weidman argued that it would affect Germany "to a lesser extent," although the US tariff on automakers would hurt manufacturers too much. The official said in his warning that further escalation would destabilize the world's two largest economies, saying economic performance had already fallen by 0.5 percent.

"The retaliatory tariffs of other countries are likely to further weaken the global economy and world trade: trade wars only know losers," Faidman concluded.
