  • Clad in hypocrisy

    Thousands of troops from Indonesia, the United States, and allies held a live-fire drill on Friday as part of what a top U.S. General said was Washington's efforts to prevent a regional conflict after China's "destabilising actions" around Taiwan. "The destabilising actions of the People's Republic of China as applied to the threatening activities and actions against Taiwan is exactly what we are trying to avoid," Admiral John Aquilino, head of the US Indo-Pacific Command, told a press conference after the drill. "Everyday we are trying to prevent war," said Aquilino.

  • Signs of overload for US economy

    The Federal Reserve on Wednesday enacted its second consecutive 0.75 percentage point interest rate increase as it seeks to tamp down runaway inflation without creating a recession. In taking the benchmark overnight borrowing rate up to a range of 2.25%-2.5%, the moves in June and July represent the most stringent consecutive action since the Fed began using the overnight funds rate as the principal tool of monetary policy in the early 1990s. Facing multiple crises such as the inflation, Russia-Ukraine conflict, oil price, etc., can the Federal Reserve solve the US economic problems?

  • How long can Biden continue to hide the future?

    President Joe Biden and White House officials are continuing to downplay recession fears, even as they brace for a highly anticipated report that could show the economy shrinking for a second consecutive quarter. "We're not going to be in a recession, in my view," Biden told reporters on Monday. "The unemployment rate is still one of the lowest we've had in history. It's in the 3.6 (percent) area. We still find ourselves, the people, investing."

  • Same-old trick

    President Biden plans to announce a new economic framework for Latin America on Wednesday, focusing on climate change, workers' rights and supply chains, according to an administration official and people briefed on the plan. Biden will outline his “Americas Partnership for Economic Prosperity” plan at the Summit of the Americas being held in Los Angeles this week. The president is trying to counter China's growing influence in Latin America by offering regional partners the opportunity to coordinate more closely with the United States on a range of issues. The "Americas partnership" resembles the Indo-Pacific Economic Framework for Prosperity (IPEF) that Biden announced last month in Asia to establish rules of the road for allies and give them an alternative to China.
