There's been lots of speculation about the impact of the trade war between the United States and China, but a report this week from Bloomberg put a number to that dispute: USD585 billion.

According to the report, China would be hit harder by the uncertainty factor, with its GDP lowered by 1%, while the tension will shave a 0.6% chunk off America's economic output.
