A Chinese professor was giving a lesson to students in 2030 – and summarizes the reasons why American empire failed.
In 2007 just before the great recession, a theory of ‘de-coupling’ caught the attention of most economists and market commentators. The argument goes that as the emerging markets such as China and India have developed robust domestic markets, they are likely to be de-coupled from a slow down of economic development in G7, lead by USA.

Looking for a list of small business ideas? Then you’ve come to the right place. Most lists are simply that: a list. A dry, boring, uninformative list. But that’s not what you want. You want to find a real business model for generating income. You want a pathway to financial independence. Most business idea gurus spend all their time telling you how to get the right mindset. Then they neglect giving you any actual ideas. But you have the right mindset. You are looking for a path. And a path that doesn’t earn any money is no path at all.

十一月下旬偶尔看到相关新闻想起来windows7的升级包的事情，上DELL网站查看居然已经有了，但是要自己上一个网站注册，并支付运费。当下就觉得这个服务很糟糕，因为这期间就没有任何DELL官方的通知发到我手机或者Email地址（这种服务我家楼下卖面包的都有）而且运费一说彻底颠覆了我对free upgrade的理解，要不是我残存的记忆力+熟练打开浏览器的能动力+正确访问DELL的官网而非某个山寨诈骗页面的辨识力+在一个角落发现这个页面欲遮还羞的观察力+一定的货币支付能力，我可能就此得不到这个蒸贵的服务包了，想到此处不由得一身冷汗。噼里啪啦填了在线表格，到得最后一步输入我的服务标签时杯具出现了，网站提示无法识别我的服务标签，在我不懈尝试数十次，期间更换了三种浏览器，两幅键盘鼠标，东西南北四个座位朝向后宣告失败。于是我发了 Email询问销售，得到回复是IT界著名金玉良言之“等等再试”。 Read the rest of this entry »

Shanghai Dialect (Called Shanghai Hua) used to be a dialect that is the proud of millions of local Shanghainese. Being able to speak Shanghai Hua is a pass to be recognized as a legitimate Shanghainese, or ‘in the loop’. Otherwise there is a serious caveat that one would be labeled as ‘Peasant’ (Called Xiang Xia Ren), or ‘one that lacks good education or manner’. In the last decade, however, the trend has changed (See Article from Global Times). The Shanghai government has been pushing hard to promote the use of Mandarin as the only used language in schools and public occasions. More and more Shanghai local kids speak mandarin much better that they can speak Shanghai Hua. In addition, the media seems on the side of ‘Peasants’ as well to portrait Shanghainese speaking Shanghai Hua as an unfriendly gesture towards non-Shanghainese. At the same time, however, Shanghai continues to be one of the most attractive cities in China for young people from all over the country to pursue their dreams, despite the complaints from some to claim Shanghai as an unfriendly city.

During May – Oct 2010 Shanghai is going to hold an Expo. It is the first Expo that took place in the New China since the country was liberated in 1949. Arguably Nanjing held the very first Expo in China in the beginning of 20th century. Shanghai government has invested huge for the ’10 Expo (See Article from Economist): a new metro system by the time of completion that will be as complext as the one in London, the two big airports that have been both expanded, and thousands of new construction sites. There is no doubt that the Shanghai 2010 expo will be a great success with impressive projects overshadowing the rest of the world. However, there is also concern and questioning on why the government need to spend so much resource on a seemingly window dressing project, and what real benefit does China obtain from such a mega event. Either way, Shanghai Expo is going to be an exciting event in 2010 worth expecting and we wish Shanghai best luck!

Beijing and Taipei are going to launch a talk on free trade and Economic Cooperation Framework Agreement (ECFA) in next week. If such negotiation goes through, it would be the most open and agressive free trade deal across the Taiwan straits (See Article from WSJ). Taiwan’s export oriented economy has been beatn badly during the financial crisis starting from 2008. The current government was hoping that a closer tie with the mainland would boost the island’s economy and people’s confidence. According to the government’s estimate, such a free trade agreement would contribute 1.6-1.7% of Taiwan’s GDP and bring 263,000 jobs. In addition, such an agreement would benefit multiple industries such as banking, agriculture, petrochemical, manufacturer and textile. Read the rest of this entry »
Chinese students top the foreign students league to study in American universities in 07/08 (See Article from Economist). According to the latest estimate, 23,779 Chinese students have gone to USA for further study during 07/08, which makes China the biggest exporter of Students to USA and beats the combined number from No.2 (India) and No.3 (Korea). From that point of view, China is literally the biggest exporter of Brains to USA.
During the global downturn since 2008, China’s Rich were better off instead thanks to the friendly domestic growth (See Graph from Chinatells). Thanks to the wealth increase of the riches, luxury goods and arts see strong growth in China, which is virtually the only bull market for such items in the world today (See Article from WSJ). In a late auction held by Christie in HK, Chinese buyers surprised the market watchers by paying hefty premiums for the luxury goods and paintings. It reminds me of the crazy days in late 80s when Japanese paid multiple millions for a painting by Van Goh. I never figured out why someone is willing to pay such a price for a canvas on the wall and whether the buyer really appreciates the value of the art. But in the end of the day, it doesn’t matter, does it? We are living in a world that money talks! Read the rest of this entry »
Online Gaming in China is one of the biggest in the world, mainly thanks to the record number of Chinese people who use internet. According to a latest estimate, there are more than 300 million People in China who use Internet and the online gaming is a market with a total revenue of $2.7 Billion (See ARticle from China Daily). Such a big market attracts not only online game providers, but also hackers. Using a trojan horse program, a hacker can control the hacked computer from a remote server and log into the computer users’ online gaming account. With the hacke account the hacker can profit from selling the possession in the victim’s virtual account and also turn it over to other potential buyers. At the same time, such a situation also provides great market potential for Anti-virus programs and software providers. China’s Internet is like a giant jungle full of opportunities but only the fittest survive.

Mr. Obama’s trip to Beijing tops the headline of most newspapers this week. However, whether the trip yields any benefit that American government hops is a question mark (See Article from NYT). Up till now, it seems that the fruits that Obama has reaped are limited. Several points on Obama’s priority list, such as Iran Sanction, RMB Exchange rate and Climate policy seem still bearing difference of opinions between the two countries. Washington’s think tank, however, is relaxed on the outcome of this visit per sei. According to them, such a vist is just a first step in the relationship building between Obama and Hu and shall return with benefits for America in the long run.

Once upon a time, America has been the world standard for innovation, quality and superiority. Coca Cola and McDonald become the world popular brand and American movies flood over world’s cinemas. China is no exception. From corporate governance to fashione, from economic theory to language and culture, America has been the model for China to learn from. Such a trend, however, has been challenged, or at least the gap between the teacher and the student has been narrowed. Thanks to its rich history which can be traced back for 5000 years, China and its unique merit has been on the learning list of Americans (See Article from Time). It seems that the most striking qualities that Americans could learn from China are: 1. Be Ambitious; 2. Emphasis on education; 3. Respect for the elderly; 4. To get rich one need to save first; 5. Look at the big picture. Read the rest of this entry »
