Emasculated US learns to deal with new status by changing policy


With its leadership eroded, America has started changing the nature of its policy. It tries to make up its diminished influence through policy adjustments, particularly bullying and intimidation. This may work in the short term. To avoid direct strategic confrontation with the US, other countries tend to make certain concessions to it. But in the long run, it will hurt the US' own interest. America's relations with other countries, including China, will eventually return to the conventional logic of international relations.

China's sharp focus on Africa dazzles many

Africa has a lot to offer in access to natural resources, trade and investment, and even migration. There are at least 10,000 Chinese-owned firms operating on the continent today. This therefore means that China's lasting effect in Africa is a foregone conclusion.

Modi's diplomatic legacy likely to continue regardless of election result

An informal meeting between Modi and Xi in Wuhan in late April, 2018 became a milestone in bilateral relations. This mechanism drives the relationship from the top town. Whoever wins the election, intensified political, cultural and economic interactions between the two giants will not change significantly.

What to expect from a Kim-Putin meeting?

As far as China is concerned, Russia plays a balancing role in the nuclear issue. It is precisely because of China and Russia's stance to press for a peaceful resolution of the issue that the situation in the region has not worsened. China likes seeing Russia play a positive role on the North Korean nuclear issue through its “limited participation.”

Academic block on China is a sleeping pill, not a US remedy

Obstructing the academic exchange between the two countries will further isolate the US, a result due to their actions. The US is choosing to ignore unlimited opportunities to expand scientific exchange with China.

American elites are damaging US' good image

The US political elites are ruining their country's good image in Chinese society which accumulated over time. We'd like to remind the US elites that such unscrupulous destruction will certainly lead to consequences. Anyone who pushes China and the US into an all-round confrontation would be a sinner in history. The US elites should have the vigilance and bear the responsibilities of not ruining the 21st century.

China's internet model gaining overseas acceptance

US media needs to know that if more countries start to follow Beijing's footsteps in internet governance while pursuing democracy in social media, it means China must have done something right.

Age-old perceptions of aging need to change

Only when the public no longer puts a label with the “O” word on people in their 40s and 50s, and only when these people themselves no longer think they have passed the pinnacle of their careers, can the energy of the labor force be completely released. And only then can the aging country maintain its vitality.

Reunification will be achieved irrespective of who wins 2020 Taiwan elections

It will force us to take measures earlier. In the games that involve the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and the US, the mainland is obviously least afraid of Taiwan resorting to a face-off.

Trade gets more attention than it deserves

I think there will be some features in the agreement that probably contribute to greater (trade) balance in the relationship between the two sides. I don't know whether that's really that good or not from a free market perspective. Trade imbalances don't bother me, but that seems to be very important to President Trump. So that will be seen by him as positive. The two countries are going to create some enforcement mechanisms. There will be enforcement offices on both sides.

For the time being, the Abe administration delays its responses to US heat on economic and trade issues, but how long can such tactics last?
