    To conquer the world, China must get smarter

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 14/08/2019

    » Many investors and economists continue to believe China's rise to global economic greatness is inevitable. Modern history, however, tells us that graduating from emerging- to a developed-economy status is hardly automatic. An overly intrusive state, dependence on debt, feeble gains in productivity and poor resource allocation are all reasons to fear that China might struggle with the transition like so many nations before it.


    Trump's China trade 'big win' will cost America

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 27/02/2019

    » Donald Trump believes he is about to score yet another big win on trade, this time with China. Progress in talks with Beijing, he claims, has been so "substantial" that he's delayed a looming March 1 deadline and is likely headed for a summit with China's President Xi Jinping to finalise a long-awaited settlement.


    Huawei is no mere victim of China tensions

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 31/01/2019

    » The US pushed its campaign against Huawei Technologies Co Ltd into hyperdrive on Monday, with the Department of Justice unveiling indictments against the Chinese telecom giant for allegedly violating US sanctions on Iran and pilfering American commercial secrets. Some may see these latest accusations as part of a larger effort by the administration of US President Donald Trump to stifle China's technological rise, as economic relations between the world's two largest economies deteriorate. Huawei, as it has in the past, denied breaking US law.

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 30/11/2018

    » Hopes are already fading that China's President Xi Jinping and his US counterpart Donald Trump will achieve a breakthrough in their trade war during this weekend's Group of 20 summit in Argentina. Even Mr Trump poured cold water on the idea, saying only days before the conference that it was "highly unlikely" he'd hold off on a planned boost to tariffs.


    Xi, not Trump is the true cold warrior

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 15/11/2018

    » The US-China trade war is looking more and more like a cold war. President Donald Trump's tariffs, crackdown on alleged Chinese theft of American technology, and rhetoric have overturned decades of US foreign policy that had prioritised cooperation. Meanwhile, his counterpart Xi Jinping hasn't budged on any concessions. China experts worry that relations between the world's two most important countries have reached a turning point.


    US-China rift is an awfully messy affair

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 13/08/2018

    » A financial adviser I know, Frank Astorino, says nothing destroys wealth like divorce. That's a warning China and the US should keep in mind as they intensify their trade war.


    Xi's foreign policy requires a Confucian overhaul

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 23/07/2018

    » China has suffered a series of diplomatic blows lately. Relations with the US are at a multi-decade low as a trade war escalates, and this month, Malaysia suspended four Chinese-backed projects as its prime minister tries to pull away from Beijing's orbit. From Myanmar to Sri Lanka to Vietnam, China's overseas investments are being met with backlash.


    It's time to give China a taste of its own bad medicine

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 29/06/2018

    » One of my mottos is: Don't criticise something unless you have a better idea. I've decried President Donald Trump's tariff tactics, so it's only fair I offer my own strategy for fighting a trade war with China -- one with a bigger chance of success and smaller downside risk.


    Show might be over before it begins

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 08/05/2018

    » North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has pledged to dismantle his nuclear test site, and supposedly, he's even inviting the international press into his usually off-limits kingdom to witness the extravaganza. The gesture is meant to prove he's serious about eliminating his weapons programme -- and he wants all the world to see it.


    Hard heads must prevail on N Korea

    News, Michael Schuman, Published on 27/04/2018

    » Hope is again rising on the Korean peninsula. Today, South Korea's President Moon Jae-in and North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un will hold a summit in the Demilitarised Zone that has divided the two states for 65 years. The meeting raises the prospect that this pointless and anachronistic conflict can finally be brought to an end, or at the very least, that the tensions now threatening global security and world financial markets can be reduced.
