The Case For Riding Out Trump’s Trade Storm

quoting Michael R. Auslinvia Tokyo Review
Thursday, May 23, 2019

The last time Japan began a new era, then-President George H.W. Bush had the manners to keep trade issues on the back-burner on a ceremonial visit to Japan. Over 25 years later, as the Reiwa Era begins, President Donald Trump will visit Tokyo as Emperor Naruhito’s first foreign head of state visitor. He arrives with unfinished business around reducing the U.S. trade deficit with Japan – and with far less concern for dignity and ceremony than his predecessors. Even commentators usually sympathetic with Japan have called for Tokyo to accede to a quick deal to avoid Trump ruining the party.

Observations from the Roundtable: China in an Emerging World

via Governance In An Emerging New World
Monday, October 29, 2018

Aspirational goal-setting has been a motivating form of governance for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). In a 1957 international meeting of communist leaders in Moscow, Nikita Khrushchev proposed a goal that the Soviet Union catch up with U.S. industrial output within 15 years; Mao Zedong countered, in turn, that within the same time frame China would not just catch up with but surpass the United Kingdom. The result was the disastrous Great Leap Forward and its resulting famine.

When his economic adviser Gary Cohn asked why he believed this, Trump replied: “I just do. I’ve had these views for 30 years.”
