The View | Why the world needs Globalisation 2.0, rather than a retreat into protectionism

China and many other developing countries have benefited greatly from globalisation, and the attempt by detractors to turn back the clock, in the name of ‘economic sovereignty’, is the wrong medicine for globalisation’s ills.

The View | Protests won’t solve Hong Kong’s economic problems, as the 1967 Newark riots show

Black residents of the New Jersey city had reason to complain, but the violence of 1967 scared away all economic hope. Likewise, if frustrated Hongkongers continue on their current path, they will send more business fleeing to Singapore.

How fair is China's crackdown on anti-monopoly behaviour?

The dairy industry is probably the sickest industry in China. Its products are sick. Its managers cheat. The indigenous dairy industry has witnessed one scandal after another, from melamine milk to leather milk and other chemical formulations that are beyond people's imagination. The dairy industry is so sick that consumers in China have totally abandoned indigenous brands, opting for imports instead.
