The ongoing trade war with China received the most votes of our members last week in an informal poll asking what they think is the biggest threat to economic growth in 2020.

Overall 52% identified the trade war, while a compilation of write-in results, including “student loans,” “low wages,” “election results” and political concerns made up about 19%.

Tied for third place are “automation,” and “prescription drugs,” with about 11% each. And finally, about 7% of survey takers selected “aging economy” as the largest threat to economic growth.
