When it comes to crisis management, one expert says apologies and promises are not enough

We’re talking NAFTA. We’re also talking tariffs. And China. And trade deficits. Leigh Gallagher from Fortune Magazine and Dion Rabouin from Yahoo Finance join us for the Weekly Wrap to talk about the unforeseen consequences of U.S. trade policy and the latest on the 10-year Treasury note. Also on today’s show, we get into the Trump administration’s attempt to get China to buy more goods from the United States. Trump wants to lower the trade deficit with Beijing, but is buying more American goods going to solve the problem? We also take a look at apology ads. They’re all the rage these days. Facebook, Uber and Wells Fargo have launched apology campaigns in the past several weeks in order to regain the trust of their customers. But does “I’m sorry” make for an effective ad?
