Trade War : The Proxy World War


Trade War, the term which was pretty much is a history where soldiers do fight for their countries in the battlefield without Guns and Grenades.

But as the technology and resources developed these wars which don’t require ammunition and it requires some kind of strong mental mindset and ability to just do the right thing at the right time.

We are surrounded by wars, the war to earn a living, a war to live a good life and a war to be a successful person. The life itself is a war to get some position in life to be free of all the tensions in life.

Just like that world also fights wars in the form some alias for peaceful wars which is involved money, politics and internet and could be any mode.

Just for instance if a product has much more demand in the market and then some company makes a deal with that company and make an FTT (Forced Technology Transfer). Being done that they open a clone of the same company with a different name with the quality of the product being as bad and started selling things at a competitive price less than the cost of raw materials.

The products which have a high cost of production their sales decline and the companies go into loss and get bankrupt.

These losses about the company have is the main reason why the trade war between the countries are susceptible and this can cause real damage to the economy and sometimes this becomes some funny side how these wars have been fought.
