Decades Of Being Wrong About China Should Teach Us Something

by Amy Zegart quoting Michael Spencevia The Atlantic
Saturday, June 8, 2019

Thirty years ago this week, I watched the news from Beijing and started shredding my bedding. It was the night before my college graduation, I had been studying Chinese politics, and news had broken that college students just like us had been gunned down in Tiananmen Square after weeks of peaceful and exhilarating democracy protests—carried on international TV. In the iconic square where Mao Zedong had proclaimed the People’s Republic decades before, bespectacled students from China’s best universities had camped out, putting up posters with slogans of freedom in Chinese and English. A “goddess of democracy” figure modeled after the Statue of Liberty embodied their hopes—and ours—for political liberation in China.

Trump Blames Mexico For A Problem With No Borders

quoting George P. Shultzvia The Washington Post
Friday, June 7, 2019

The United States and Mexico are squaring off in a tense showdown entirely of President Trump’s making. Following a tweeted announcement from the president, the Trump administration is readying a 5 percent tariff on $350 billion worth of Mexican goods imported into the United States. Trump threatened the punitive measure as a result of Mexico’s supposed inability to thwart flows of migrants making their way north. U.S. and Mexican officials met in Washington this week to hash out a deal that would dispel the possibility of a new trade war. At the time of writing, there was cautious optimism that the impasse could be breached.

with Timothy Garton Ashvia The Slovak Spectator
