Beijing set a growth target of above 6% for 2021 on Friday, after a post by a famous economist warning of a toxic mix of slower growth and rising prices went viral. Popular anxiety hints at a monetary conundrum, says @ywchen1 https://t.co/EmYIUm9h9p https://t.co/kxOHe8usjc
"To reflect the true intention of clause 3 of the Bill it should be amended to make clear that the Director’s power to prohibit the carriage of any person on board a carrier is exercisable only in relation to inbound flights heading to Hong Kong but not departing flights."
Without getting into a blame game, it's clear that unless China starts reining in emissions fast, efforts taken elsewhere in the world will be largely vain. Global carbon budgets don't have enough wiggle room for a country with 30% of emissions to keep polluting at these rates. https://t.co/1zujQ2Ongb
huh, Lincoln's depiction of the South's demands is strangely reminiscent of China's demands today. "These natural, and apparently adequate means all failing, what will convince them? This, and this only: cease to call slavery wrong, and join them in calling it right."
#BREAKING: A committee in Hong Kong’s legislature today approved an amendment proposed by the security bureau that enables the government to bar people from leaving the city. The bill will be deliberated in the general meeting, and will take effect as early as August 1 if passed.
This would give police outsize power to punish without involving judges. Extended pre-trial detention without bail, plus the possibililty of being locked in HK, is a potent tool to force compliance/confessions. Just getting arrested is a sentence. https://t.co/H8cU9YnC9K

Can one create a sea in a mountainous inland city? #China’s Deyang in Sichuan province has done it. The artificial sea park has not only realized the wishes of locals to see the sea at their doorstep, but also helped propel economic development. This is how they achieved it. https://t.co/yttxf11xoZ
Why encouraging officials to rely on GDP output as the key measure of economic health is a bad idea in one pithy example. https://t.co/bP1CGxefbu
Shares in energy champions like Sinopec are rallying as they announce plans to serve Beijing’s carbon-neutral push. But creditors and smaller players in coal and heavy industries might shiver, writes @ywchen1 https://t.co/tFjagrv6JP https://t.co/bYiUOO9uNk
Chinese SOEs now account for approx 4.5% of world GDP, estimates @andrewbatson . Cleaning them up could pay a big dividend. It could also put a lot of them out of business, so creditors take note! Nice take by Chen Yawen. https://t.co/OjgUBbfuPi
