Is China Dictating What We See on TV?

Aynne Kokas is back on the Need to Know podcast! You see, she was studying China's censorship of American media since before it was cool. And this week, with situations between China and the NBA and South Park hitting the news, it's definitely cool. Take a listen to her previous episode if you haven't already, and listen to our episodes with Robert Daly filling in context on the Hong Kong protests.

Taiwan in a Strategic Whirlwind

It has been a busy week for China. In addition to holding a major military parade in Beijing to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, Chinese security forces dramatically escalated tension in Hong Kong by using live ammunition against protesters. During this remarkable week I was in Taiwan as a guest of their foreign ministry, meeting with leaders from their government, military, academia, and business communities. The week’s events had a significant impact on Taiwan, and are likely to reverberate for years to come.

Taiwan’s Economic Momentum for Regeneration

Uncertainties abound regarding trade relations between the United States and China, as the causes of tensions range from frustration over trade imbalances to grievances about adhering to the rule of law. But equally unsettling is the fact that it is difficult to predict which side may actually emerge victorious in the end. In fact, the question may well be which country will be able to hedge its losses more rather than coming out ahead in the end.
