US China Tariff Timeline

For the first time in our lifetimes, we have an actual trade war between two big countries. The last major trade war was in 1930 when none of us were alive. Most trade wars end in real wars or some government change. By noting the timeline, we can compare how fast such effects will occur from then and now.
