Chipping in

KNOWN for its casinos and conservative society , the city-state of Macau is a magnet for the rich in search of decadent fun. It is rarely the site of political protest. But on August 25th around 1,000 of Macau’s dealers and servers took to the streets ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 27 2014]

Poles apart

NOWHERE in the world, it seems, are demonstrators so hard to count as in Hong Kong. This was true even under British rule. Under Chinese sovereignty since 1997, Hong Kong’s  arithmetic has got even harder . When untold thousands took to the streets ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 18 2014]

Shaming an internet celebrity

GUO MEIMEI had often featured in Chinese media, but her appearance on China Central Television (CCTV) on August 4th was different. A gifted self-publicist, the 23-year-old had once liked to flaunt designer handbags, pose by Maseratis and post selfies ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 14 2014]

Drawing a line

A FISHING barge strewn with what look like animal corpses occupies the atrium of Shanghai’s Power Station of Art (PSA). This macabre Noah’s Ark (pictured above) is the bleak vision of Cai Guo-Qiang, an avant-garde artist who enjoys government favour ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 12 2014]

They still love him in China

You don't think I'm tricky, do you? IN THE issue dated August 10th, 1974 The Economist editorialised on the scandalous end of Richard Nixon’s presidency. We noted that most of adult America had “spent its political life making up its mind, one way ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 10 2014]

China jails foreign sleuths

"Leftover" and proud

IT ISN'T easy being young and female in China. The pressure to marry begins from your early to mid-twenties, often with your own mother ringing you on a daily basis to encourage you to settle. Education and job opportunities are rigged towards men ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Aug 02 2014]

Not letting a hundred flowers bloom

Nipped in the bud IT WAS in a rather brusque and unceremonious fashion that the Cenci Journalism Project, a crowdsourced and volunteer-run media translation site, was systematically removed this month from the Chinese internet. Its website was blocked ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Jul 31 2014]

No ordinary Zhou

Joltin' Zhou has left and gone away SINCE President Xi Jinping launched his anti-corruption campaign at the end of 2012, the question has been how high he would aim. On July 29th an emphatic answer came with the news that Zhou Yongkang (pictured) was ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Jul 30 2014]

Not yum!

Will you come back if we clean up our act? JUST a few months ago a meat-processing plant in Shanghai’s Jiading district won a food safety award.

Soft power outage

Oh by the way, which one's pro-China? PINK Floyd’s former frontman Syd Barrett may seem an unlikely vehicle for the dissemination of pro-China propaganda. But Mr Barrett’s visage appeared on one of around 100 sham Twitter accounts uncovered by Free ... [Published Analects - The Economist - Jul 23 2014]

Growth and debt, rising together

CHINA has released economic data for the second quarter showing that annualised growth, at 7.5%, has met the government's official target.

Political intrigue translates well IN A scene at the start of the second season of   " House of Cards ", a TV political drama series, the American president and advisors gather for a tense meeting in the Oval Office. China and America are soon to enter into a joint venture on a rare earth refinery in Fujian province. The debate is over the threat posed by Chinese cyber attacks. With continued breaches of cyber security, one character suggests, China will no longer need bother with such ventures and instead simply obtain new technology through corporate espionage. This unusually authentic treatment of issues at the core of Sino-American relations has earned “House of Cards” cachet among China-watchers. (Among some it has inspired forensic scrutiny , but not always to the show’s credit.) Among Chinese nationals,... Continue reading "
...In a tweet Zhou Tiedong, the president of China Film Promotion International, a government body, pronounced the coming years to be "the China decade”. In terms of box-office performance that is not far-fetched. China is now the world’s second largest market, with box-office takings in 2013 growing 28% year-on-year to $3.6 billion. Some predict that, by 2020, China will have taken over America’s market. But the appeal of Chinese films abroad has been limited. Last year overseas admissions to Chinese-made films declined for the second successive year. Of some 640 films produced, 45 were licensed for exhibition abroad, earning a... Continue reading "
"I failed properly to protect the school leaders, and this has been a lifelong source of anguish and remorse."
