(U.S. Edition) The White House is on track to impose a 25 percent penalty on steel from Europe, and a 10 percent penalty on aluminum from the region. We’ll talk to Ian Bremmer, founder of the political risk consultancy Eurasia Group — about whether this means a trade war, and then we’ll look at the American-made products the European Union will make tougher to sell.
