William Jones: G20 Teleconference Creates New Opportunities
The Chinese word for “crisis” is composed of two characters that respectively signify “danger” and “opportunity.” The coronavirus pandemic has indeed alerted the world to the “danger” lurking amongst us. But the G20 Extraordinary Leaders’ Summit on COVID-19 of March 26 represented a real "opportunity” to advance a coordinated global response to the outbreak, and to create also a new paradigm for humankind to overcome the drawbacks and dangers implied by the prevailing geopolitical status quo....2020-03-30
William Jones: Trump's blame game could put American lives at risk
Anyone who has watched Trump's daily briefings with the White House coronavirus task force he set up, can clearly see that the U.S. views this more and more as a zero-sum game with China, which through diligent efforts and the nation coming together, had succeeded in getting to a point where there are no, or very few, new incidents of the virus. ...2020-03-23
William Jones: Great Panic of 2020 is not the financial crisis of 2008
However things develop, it is already clear that there can be no simple return to the status quo ante. Too much has already been revealed about the fragile nature of our health system and the fragile nature of our economic system based on the vagaries of that "bubble market" known as Wall Street. There will have to be a new order of things in the United States, one geared to the people's livelihood rather than the Dow Jones average. Coming out of such a major crisis, the American people will accept no less....2020-03-16
William Jones: Will US system withstand test of COVID-19?
The coronavirus outbreak was a test of the effectiveness of the Chinese Government, so also will the coronavirus be a test of the US system of governance. And problems have already emerged. The initial batch of 200 virus test kits that the CDC had sent to labs were defective. The CDC had also restricted the target groups for testing to those who had recently traveled to China or their contacts. As a result, some people in California and Washington state who had some symptoms, didn't meet the CDC criteria for testing and weren't tested, and one of them has died....2020-03-04
William Jones: Nobody likes a bully
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and his sidekick and fellow West Pointer, Defense Secretary Mark Esper, descended on the Munich Security Conference (MSC), like Batman and Robin into Gotham City, to "save" the people from the "evils" lurking around them, in this case China and Russia. "The West is Winning" Pompeo trumpeted triumphantly to what must have been a surprised audience, gathered to discuss how the Cold War was over and that new forms of collaboration between nations had to be established. ...2020-02-18
The urgency to understand China's Xinjiang narrative
The issue of Xinjiang has repeatedly been brought up in Western criticism for China. It almost comes as a "handy weapon" for some politicians when they find it necessary to play down China.However, to judge the issue from a "right or wrong" point of view is to fail to grapple the complexity behind the debate. Controversies around Xinjiang are a mirror that reflects some deep differences in terms of how the West and China see issues like human rights, freedom, governance and development....2020-02-18
William Jones: A much distress regenerates a nation, 中国,加油!
The outbreak of the coronavirus in China came as a great shock to the world. And the emergency measures taken by the Wuhan authorities and by the Central Government have been singularly important in attempting to limit the spread of the disease in China and the rest of the world. The courageous efforts of the Chinese medical personnel and the citizenry in dealing with an overwhelming event which tested the capacity of the extensive medical infrastructure in the city has represented a degree of heroism seen otherwise only in the case of war....2020-02-17
Willism Jones: There's no doubt China will bounce back from epidemic's impact
There has been a great outpouring of sympathy for China throughout the world in the wake of the sudden outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia. But, at the same time, those forces in the West who have been adamantly opposed to the admission of China into the pantheon of world powers, have seen this catastrophe as an opportunity to throw new obstacles in the path of China's rise....2020-02-13
