Missing the point of the article, 'newspeak'.

Singapore is the world's most successful city state!

The future of Singapore in the trend of geopolitics?
While the Lee Kuan Yew is widely respected throughout China as a statesman who helped inspire the country’s reform process and development of ties with the West, the younger Harvard-educated Lee has come to be regarded with suspicion and skepticism in China due to his closeness to and affinity for the US.

Commercial relations have remained strong despite recent diplomatic twists and turns. China has been Singapore’s largest trading partner since 2013, with the two countries recording US$66 billion in two-way trade last year. Chinese companies made US$4.2 billion worth of investments in Singapore property and non-financial sectors in 2016. Singapore is the second-largest investor in China, with some US$6.2 billion invested in 2016.

But Singapore's support for the ruling in the Hague last year that rejected China’s South China Sea claims by ruling in favor of the Philippines’ sovereign rights to contested waters is not viewed kindly in Beijing. Nor is Singapore's friendship with Taiwan, or its hosting of American military vessels and aircraft that conduct reconnaissance in the South China Sea.

CEO’s worry about their stock price during the next five years, not about America’s competitive position in 10 years

The bravest are surely those who have the clearest vision of what is before them, glory and danger alike, and yet notwithstanding, go out to meet it. Let us therefore do so together, Slightly Optimistic.

The West's contempt for China is turning to panic

Graham Allison’s The Thucydides Trap, a plea not to oppose China’s strategic challenge to the United States, now sits on the desk of every senior staffer at the National Security Council courtesy of President Trump’s national security adviser, Gen. H.R. McMasters.

From the Thucydides Trap
If the current trend continues, China’s economy will be a full 50 percent larger than that of the US by 2023. By 2040 it could be nearly three times as large.

From the New York Times
To gain access to the Chinese market, American companies are being forced to transfer technology, create joint ventures, lower prices and aid homegrown players.

Interfering with US companies’ tech transfer to China would hurt revenues in the short- and medium-term. US companies are making a good living on the rise of China, and CEO’s worry about their stock price during the next five years, not about America’s competitive position in 10 years

Good morning to you all. I trust that all is well with all of you this weekend. What will the outcome of the Doha round look like and mean for international relations in a globalising world? Can the World Trade Organisation (WTO) survive its failure? In the short term, yes! In the long term, what about 'Global Trade', Slightly Optimistic?

You probably are anti-Semitic, c, but you're so pathetic already that it really is not significant.

Interesting though your lb post.

Someone described him to me as like an east end barrow boy which of course is what many Jews started out as here when they arrived as penniless immigrants.

So the only difference really is that for most of them it was a century or more ago.
most of them became successful businessmen, some extraordinarily so, and now their descendants are most likely to have degrees from the best Universities.

Whereas for lb - product probably of some minor public school or the local comp, not much to choose between them, he isn't even now where they were then. At least they worked for themselves,he is just the errand boy for someone else ....,

Success breeds envy. You can't get much lower down the pecking order than a pizza delivery boy....

Good morning to you all. I trust that all is well with all of you this sunny Thursday morning here in London. What will the outcome of the Doha round look like and mean for international relations in a globalising world? The London 'Times' leads today with some editorial comment about online accounts.

"Too often, big internet companies turn a blind eye to behaviour they facilitate on their sites. Twitter fails to rein in abuse. Facebook fails to police child pornography. They plead innocence on the flimsy grounds that their users are solely responsible for what happens on their “platforms”.

Amazon has used a similar argument to distance itself from the 23,000 non-EU retailers in its marketplace who do not pay VAT on sales in Britain. The traders, many of whom are based in China, use Amazon warehouses and distribution facilities.

The absence of tax on their goods allows them to undercut honest retailers. It also costs the Treasury somewhere between £1 billion and £1.5 billion a year in lost revenue ... "


'The Times' thunders that Amazon must take responsibility for its sellers’ unpaid VAT. What do you think, Thoughtful?
