Opinion | Why yellow, blue Hong Kong are both to blame for city’s identity crisis

There is a growing risk Hong Kong society will increasingly resemble that of the mainland as Beijing’s influence becomes pervasive. Hong Kong needs to refresh its own system to make it more sustainable and avoid having Beijing intervene further in its affairs.

Opinion | Let’s build a more inclusive Hong Kong, and put people’s happiness first

Restructuring Hong Kong could be disruptive, but the city can afford to take some short-term pain for long-term gain. The entrenched elite fail to see that a rejuvenated Hong Kong would achieve new heights of prosperity.

Macroscope | GameStop’s wild ride and other risks just add to China’s appeal as a safe haven

A majority of Asian stock markets are relatively smaller and less liquid than those in the West, perhaps giving less scope for buying frenzies. Indeed, China is looking attractive as a haven for global investors seeking to hedge against rising risks.

Opinion | Turmoil gives Hong Kong its best chance for badly needed political and economic reforms since 1997

Amid the crisis comes a chance to start afresh, agree on some form of electoral democracy and press on with much-needed social and economic reforms in housing and jobs. It is time for Hong Kong to stop being governed by cartels and caretakers

Opinion | Hong Kong needs radical social and economic reform. Let’s start with breaking up the property cartel

Even if Carrie Lam were to quit as chief executive, the anger that led to the mass protests would not die down as long as the local economy continues to be run by cartels, especially in the housing sector. Shock therapy is needed urgently.
