Suitcases stuffed with hundreds of thousands of dollars. Luxury watches. Trips to the sauna. This is a story of bribery and western companies in China.

How money + politics = access. When Joe Biden hosted Chinese leader Xi Jinping for a five-day diplomatic trip in 2012, Dreamworks head and mega-donor Jeffrey Katzenberg made several cameos. On Xi's last day, Dreamworks announced a $300m+ Chinese deal.

Vietnam has big plans for 5G. But they don’t seem to include Huawei. Just don’t try asking Vietnamese officials why not. It can get awkward.

Nixon’s contingency plan, for use in case Apollo 11 ended in tragic “moon disaster," 50 years ago this week:

Nixon’s contingency plan, for use in case Apollo 11 ended in tragic “moon disaster," 50 years ago this week:

"In their exploration, they stirred the people of the world to feel as one; in their sacrifice, they bind more tightly the brotherhood of man."

A 13-year-old girl hung herself because her dad couldn’t make it across the border. It was his 3rd try; she had lost all hope. w @cegoldbaum https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/17/us/migrant-teen-suicide-long-island.html?smid=nytcore-ios-share … via @NYTimes

This is a heart wrenching story that shows the psychological impact on families that are torn apart because of violence

Nothing like publishing an article on discrimination against women in China only to hours later get mansplained by a white guy. A timely reminder that misogyny is a global problem

Oy. Apparently, "Any Qin" will do.

It may be the most valuable asset class in the world - China’s $40 trillion+ residential real estate market. And it is held overwhelmingly by men, writes ⁦@amyyqin⁩ - “The entire deck is stacked against women in so many ways,” said ⁦@LetaHong

Tariffs on CN goods generated $20.8 billion, much less than $28 billion to bail out farmers hurt by Trump's trade war. And, yep, many studies show that Am consumers are bearing much of the cost of the tariffs. Excellent report @AnaSwanson @jimtankersley

Quoted @catecadell

After 22 (mostly western) countries called on China to halt the mass detention of Uighurs in Xinjiang at the U.N. Human Rights Council, China rounded up 37 countries to sign a counter letter, supporting the camps - so how do China's 37 human rights crusaders stack up?

This thread just about sums it up

THIS. "President Trump woke up on Sunday morning, gazed out at the nation he leads, saw the dry kindling of race relations and decided to throw a match on it."

A look at how India's tallest and most glamorous building ended up an unfinished construction site, and what that says about a serious threat to the country's economy https://www.ft.com/content/9f67b996-a3ba-11e9-974c-ad1c6ab5efd1 …

This has so many similarities to the China story. Shadow banks lending to real estate. Check. Unfinished vanity real estate projects. Check. Ballooning debt of property developers. Check.

"The judge accepted Ms. Vierra’s ex-husband’s arguments that she was unfit to raise Zeina because she was a Westerner, and furthermore, because she ran her own business, a yoga studio, leaving her with little time to devote to her child." #SaudiArabia

One of the biggest traders of oil and industrial metals (like copper and zinc) is cutting out agents and middlemen after several graft probes. In many foreign corruption cases, palms are greased between the layers of distributors and agents.

With growth falling to its slowest pace in nearly three decades, and its debt rapidly rising, could Beijing’s playbook run out of steam?

What keeps the Taliban up at night? A prosecutor who wants to put abusive men behind bars. A radio station that gives a voice to abused women.
