The New China Rules

by Michael R. Auslinvia National Review
Thursday, September 27, 2018
In July, Palau Pacific Airways shuttered its doors. The small airline had found itself the collateral damage in a battle between its archipelago of 21,000 persons and China. Palau is one of only 18 countries to maintain diplomatic relations with Taiwan. As a result, the Chinese government had banned all tour groups to Palau, imposed fines on those who defied the edict, and thereby crushed revenue for the airline.

Chinese And American Universities Have Much In Common

by Alvin Rabushkavia Thoughtful Ideas
Thursday, September 27, 2018

It is customary to hold a Convocation at the beginning of each academic year to welcome first-year students (frosh, freshers) to campus. The presidents of Chinese universities tell students to follow their interests and passions, so long as they conform with Xi Jinping Thought on Socialism with Chinese Characteristics for a New Era. The presidents of American universities also tell students to follow their interests and passions, so long as they conform with Diversity, Inclusion, Equity, and Social Justice.

Xinjiang: Bridge Or Barrier To Xi Jinping’s Belt And Road Initiative?

by Dru C. Gladneyvia The Caravan
Thursday, September 27, 2018

Why is China taking desperate actions toward the Uyghur and the spread of radical Islam in the vast western region known as Xinjiang?  Experts find little evidence directly linking jihadist-inspired radicalism to specific terrorist attacks and acts of violence in the region, which have been growing over the last decade.  Beginning in early 2017, China began establishing innumerable “re-education centers,” sweeping up nearly 1 million Uyghur and other Muslim minorities, by some estimates, almost 1/10th of their population.

Falling, Not Rising, Cronyism Is The Main Cause Of NPAs

quoting Raghuram Rajanvia Economic Times (India)
Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Former RBI chief Raghuram Rajan has dissected the banking crisis in his recent analysis of non-performing assets (NPAs). He implies that cronyism is an important cause. I would say the anti-corruption activism of NGOs, the Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) and courts — all aimed at reducing cronyism — has played a major role too.
