Twins!

  • 0

If you want to know why I haven’t been writing much recently, here’s the reason: This Tuesday, January 29, at 6:45am, my wife Frances gave birth to twin baby girls.  Alice Chovanec (Chinese name Cheng Yilan) was born first, weighed 2.82kg (6 lbs, 4 ounces), and was 46cm long.  Rachel Chovanec (Chinese name Cheng Xinlan) […]

What Causes Revolutions?

  • 0

A surprising number of people in China have been writing and talking about “revolution”.  First came word, in November, that China’s new leaders have been advising their colleagues to read Alexis de Tocqueville’s classic book on the French Revolution, L’Ancien Régime et la Révolution (The Old Regime and the Revolution), which subsequently has shot to […]

Enter the New Year

  • 0

I took a bit of a blogging break for the holidays, so this is a catch-up post. Just before Christmas I appeared on another edition of Sinica Podcast, this one focused on the looming clash between the U.S. and China over accounting standards for US-listed Chinese companies.  My fellow guest was Professor Paul Gillis from […]

Bloomberg: Challenges China’s New Leadership Faces

  • 0

On Friday, I was on Bloomberg TV talking about China’s latest economic data for October (at the time of my interview, only the inflation figures had been announced), and some of the key challenges facing China’s ruling party as it begins its once-in-a-decade leadership transition.  I took a distinctly contrarian view on the latest inflation […]

Sinica Podcast: Party Congress Preview

  • 0

You know you’ve hit the big time in China when you’re invited as a guest on Kaiser Kuo’s Sinica Podcast.  This week, I joined Kaiser’s co-host Jeremy Goldkorn of danwei.com for a discussion about China’s upcoming leadership transition.  I really recommend listening to the 45-minute session, not so much for my own comments — which […]

WSJ: China’s Solyndra Economy

  • 0

I had a new op-ed in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, which you can read below or view the original here.  At the very last moment, one paragraph was cut from the final version, presumably due to space limitations.  I have restored it here in italics, because the crisis facing Suntech (the world’s largest solar panel […]

This weekend, I was quoted in The Weekly Standard about what Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan need to know about what is happening in China.  It begins by noting that Paul Ryan, Romney’s surprise VP pick, came out swinging the other day on President Obama’s handling of China: “Free trade is a powerful tool for [...]
