Trade War is Politics (not economic)?

Heisenberg (SA Author that many love to hate but many read) posted a great review of the recent trade war … 

There are two points that really surfaced for me … a) the tit-tat between US and China are moves that actually go against each’s best economic interests, and b) the timing of the US FED interest rates being used as a political cataylst to control further trade actions (this surfaces nicely in the comments).  Some of this analysis is disturbing if political intentions are really behind these moves (US moves).  That signifies that policy makers may not really care too much about the near / intermediate impact to workers (and consumers) for their own political gain.  If that is the core of the strategy, it is very, very sad
