Professor Wolff joins Boom Bust to talk about Trump's signing of the Hong Kong Autonomy Act and how the sanctions will affect China. "I'm astonished by the grotesque hypocrisy.

Every business that ever invested in Hong Kong over the last 20 years knew exactly what the future held in store. Those decisions to take those risks have already been made and mostly this is posturing by Mr. Trump."Read more

"For those people that believe that all of these jobs will stay here but now they will go to Americans, that's just silly. The history doesn't show that. Most of the hiring will now move aboard.

For most capitalist it really doesn't matter all that much whether you employ them over there or here. So my bottom line is, this is more theater from Mr. Trump."
