William Jones: As Hong Kong remains calm, many questions still remain
The U.S. Congress has determined to "stay involved" in Hong Kong affairs through the Hong Kong Democracy and Human Rights Act, which was signed into law by Trump on Wednesday. This requires an ever-watchful eye on possible machinations by the U.S. or the British in fomenting problems for China in Hong Kong. While the British Empire disappeared, British imperial thinking has not. And unfortunately, too many of their "American cousins" have also adopted that characteristic British swagger, which has always accompanied the British overlord. ...2019-11-29
William Jones: Will Democrats' rush to impeach secure Trump's re-election?
The United States was subjected to a week of hearings in the House of Representatives by the House Intelligence Committee attempting to make the point that President Donald Trump was unfit for office and should be impeached. The issue was an alleged attempt by the president to use promised military aid as a "wedge" to get the newly elected Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, to investigate the role of Hunter Biden, the son of one of his Democratic challengers in the 2020 election, in alleged payoffs from the Ukrainian firm Burisma....2019-11-28
William Jones: The source of Hong Kong's problems lies in Washington
While President Trump maintains a guarded silence on the violence in Hong Kong, and is getting hit by much of the conservative press for his not speaking out "in support of" the bomb-throwers on Hong Kong streets, many of his underlings are playing these provocations to the hilt, just stopping short of breaking with the President's hope that this all will end peacefully....2019-11-20
William Jones: Media and think tanks join hands to combat 'fake news' about China
Around 270 representatives of think tanks and media organizations from 99 countries gathered in Shanghai on November 6 and 7 for the second Hongqiao International Economic Forum on China's 70-year Development and the Building of a Community with a Shared Future for Mankind, to discuss the significance for the world of China's road to prosperity over the last 70 years and celebrate the success of the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). ...2019-11-11
William Jones: Is mob rule taking over in Hong Kong or in the U.S. Congress?
On October 15, the U.S. House of Representatives passed on a voice vote, the Hong Kong Democracy and Human Rights Act. This legislation would give the right to the U.S. Congress to determine whether or not Hong Kong, a legitimate part of China, has maintained the autonomy granted to it by China's central government under the "One country, Two systems" principle. If they judge that it hasn't, the U.S. will reserve the right to withdraw the status of Hong Kong as a free market. ...2019-10-18
William Jones: Global competitiveness report a wake-up call on the economy
It was a rather gloomy picture presented in this year's Global Competitiveness Report issued by the World Economic Forum. The report is said to be an indicator of how close an economy is to the "frontier" of competitiveness in the various areas of the economy. While the definition of "competitiveness" is somewhat elusive, and perhaps rather subjective, it does include as a basic element the notion of productivity increases, and in that sense has a real basis in reality. ...2019-10-11
William Jones: Beware of the doomsday prophets
As little Greta Thunberg was making her prime-time appearance at the UN Climate Summit, in an almost hysterical state, railing against world leaders who were talking about "fairy tales of eternal economic growth" while the world was facing "mass extinction" because CO2 levels have not been brought down to "net zero," I could not but feel a little sorry for this poor child from Sweden. But psychologically, she is undoubtedly in a very fragile state. I don't know who put her there, but it is well-nigh criminal that they have done so. Even more criminal is the attempt to put her on a world tour to spread her irrational fears of "mass extinction."...2019-10-08
William Jones: The BRI promotes the dialogue of cultures
Much has been written recently in the Western media about China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). Numerous Western think-tanks have devoted units of their establishments to study the BRI. And even many of those individuals and institutions that have taken a positive view of the project (and many have not), there is still an undertone of suspicion that somehow, for all the good it has achieved, it is still motivated primarily by Chinese political interests and should, therefore, be approached cautiously....2019-10-08
