Lanhee Chen: China Steps Back On Promise To Hong Kong

by Lanhee J. Chenvia Townhall Review
Friday, May 29, 2020

China has now moved to exert more control over Hong Kong, ending the special treatment that was guaranteed to it when the former British colony was turned over to Beijing’s control in 1997. At the time, China promised Hong Kong would be governed for 50 years under the principle of “one country, two systems.” In other words, Hong Kong would retain its own legal system and police force through 2047.

‘Indian Sun’ Review: The Virtuoso Becomes A Celebrity

by Tunku Varadarajanvia The Wall Street Journal
Friday, May 29, 2020

If Mahatma Gandhi is unarguably the Indian most famed in the world in the past 100 years, there can be little doubt that the musician Ravi Shankar is next in the pecking order of renown. Unlike the celibate Mahatma, however—whose idea of pleasure was a mouthful of goat’s milk—the sitar maestro was a charismatic sensualist whose girlfriends “numbered 186 in all.”

The Shape Of Economic Recovery

quoting John H. Cochranevia Forbes
Thursday, May 28, 2020

Even with all 50 states in the U.S. reopened to some degree, the latest hopes for a steady, but gradual, economic recovery that resembles Nike NKE’s “swoosh” will likely prove to be too optimistic. Rather, the economy could follow a zigzag path for one important reason: the rise and fall of the spread of the coronavirus.

Is It A Game Or Is It Real? Simulations And Wargaming In Cyber

quoting Jacquelyn Schneidervia Atlantic Council
Tuesday, May 26, 2020

In the summer of 2002, the United States Armed Forces conducted the Millennium Challenge (MC02), a three-week exercise simulating a military confrontation between “Blue” forces, the United States, and “Red” forces, a fictitious formidable Persian Gulf state. Consisting of computer simulations and live exercises, the joint, 13,000-person, $250 million wargame’s objective was to put the United States military’s “transformation”––a shift toward more network-centric operations––to the test.

Thinking On The Margin With Our Sick Cat

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Saturday, September 22, 2018

In December 2016, I posted about the fact that we had started giving our cat chemotherapy for his small-cell lymphoma. It seemed to work for a while, but in November 2017, it seemed to be failing. Joey, our cat, was starting to lose weight. He had been about 16.5 pounds (which was, admittedly, too much) before he got sick, but in November it was down to about 15.5 pounds, but, more important, he was vomiting a lot.

China Knows All About Trade Wars And Arrogance: But Does Donald Trump?

quoting Niall Fergusonvia South China Morning Post
Saturday, September 22, 2018

Certainly, Qianlong made a serious blunder in choosing not to do business with the British. Because of a trade imbalance with the Chinese, the British started a lucrative opium business. The opium trade caused a flowback of silver and deep-rooted socioeconomic problems in China. You might blame the emperor’s arrogance but he did not have a global view, as his “world” was confined to China and its tributary system. In the end, China was greatly humiliated in the two Opium Wars.
