    Level playing field will help the poor

    Posted Oct 01st 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com A level playing field will help the poor Poverty is not just about social welfare. Such a welfare view provides at best a narrow perspective of the real battle. Yet, given the bureaucratic nature of the government, it's inevitable officials from the chief secretary downwards would think only of social welfare policies when it comes to addressing ...

    Jumping up and down about poverty

    Posted Sep 30th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Jumping up and down about poverty "Poverty" is politics. I put it in quotations because it is exactly like "democracy", a highly contested term that can mean anything depending on your ideology and vested interest. Of course it is also about economics, education and social conditions. But let's just focus on one glaring feature from ...

    ... Alex Lo The Hall of Uselessness: Collected Essays by Simon Leys New York Review Books 4 stars Alex Lo The fox knows many things, according to Isaiah Berlin, but the hedgehog knows one big thing. If so, Pierre Ryckmans, better known to the reading public as Simon Leys, is a rare hybrid. He knows one really big thing, China, but judging by this eclectic collection of essays spanning ...

    If CY Leung is forced to quit, what then?

    Posted Sep 05th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com If Leung is forced to quit, what then? People should be careful what they wish for. NeoDemocrats lawmaker Gary Fan Kwok-wai and hundreds of people signed an advert that ran in newspapers in Hong Kong and Taiwan calling on Chief Executive Leung Chun-ying to resign. They also warned Taiwan against "mainlandisation" as the island plans to boost ...

    No Darkness at Noon in Jinan

    Posted Aug 24th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com No Darkness at Noon in Jinan Communist parties seem to have a weakness for show trials. The most famous of these were the Moscow trials, which provided the backdrop to Arthur Koestler's powerful novel Darkness at Noon . I was reminded of it while watching the Bo Xilai trial. You can call it an open trial because millions of Chinese citizens can ...

    Posted Aug 13th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Snowden vindicated by NSA reforms The line between hero and traitor is a thin one indeed. Edward Snowden has been called both. But if there is any doubt about the value of his actions and the positive changes he has achieved, just read the news that US President Barack Obama has authorised the first public reform of surveillance programmes since ...

    Book review: Wealth and Power

    ... Alex Lo Wealth and Power: China's Long March to the Twenty-First Century by Orville Schell and John Delury Random House 4 stars Alex Lo How you understand and translate the Chinese phrase zhongguo says much about what you think about China, and the presuppositions and biases you entertain about it. Quite simply, it means "China". But if you analyse the two ...

    Hapless Paul Chan should step aside

    Posted Jul 29th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com Hapless Paul Chan should step aside It's time for ministers to realise they should quit when they can no longer do their job properly and have become a more of a liability than an asset to the government they serve. It is, after all, what being accountable means under our ministerial system, or should have meant if successive post-handover administrations ...

    How C.Y. won this spying game

    Posted Jun 26th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com How C.Y. won this spying game For once, Leung Chun-ying and his administration have proved to be cleverer than their critics and even the Americans. The explosive revelations by Edward Snowden about pervasive US cyberspying have been a propaganda coup for Beijing, but his presence in Hong Kong was a major embarrassment for the administration. Many people were ...

    Time for C.Y. to show some leadership

    Posted Jun 13th 2013, 12:00am by Alex Lo

    ... Alex Lo alex.lo@scmp.com MY TAKE Time for C.Y. to show some leadership Let me practise some equal-opportunities criticism. A few columns ago, I complained that the fragmented pan-democrats have no Mandela or Aung San Suu Kyi, not even a presentable leader like Martin Lee was in the 1990s. Their futile search for an elusive consensus on a reform plan for full suffrage betrays ...
