The " trade war” between the United States and China, launched in 2018 by US President Donald Trump with the imposition of billions of dollars in tariffs on Chinese goods, has had a profound impact on global commerce. Focusing on concrete competitive actions taken by the US and China as the basic unit of our analysis, we applied competitive dynamics theory to conduct a tentative investigation of the process, mode, and characteristics of the two nations’ trade interactions. Our paper reveals the dynamic, multidimensional nature of competitive engagements within the context of international trade disputes, extends the empirical settings of competitive dynamics theory to a larger and broader scope, and offers a new potential direction for Chinese management scholarship and application.
