The Chinese economy recorded its slowest growth in a year.

What’s happening, you ask? (1/9)
~The only major economy to end 2020 sans recession, #China clocked a GDP growth rate of 18.3% in Q1.

~But this quarter, it was only 4.9%. The last time this happened, China was dealing with a pandemic. (2/9)
This time it's courtesy of 3 major pain points- the energy, shipping, and real estate crises.

1.) The Energy Crunch. As economies opened up, the demand for goods increased. Production rose, and so did the demand for coal...(3/9)

"On Oct. 25, 1971, when the GA voted to admit delegates from the PRC. The Republic of #China lost its seat and has been on the outside looking in ever since. Resolution 2758 marked the beginning of Beijing’s assault on Taiwan’s international status."…
"A true reckoning would have recognized the existence of two states, each with a right to U.N. membership—a solution not unlike those later reached to admit both North and South Korea and both East and West Germany."
"In the early 2000s, to explain why he had blocked a Taiwanese diplomat from speaking to the U.N. Correspondents Association, Secretary-General Kofi Annan invented a U.N. 'one-China policy.'"

1. DingDing just put out a very long essay(in Chinese) on slowly improving China-US relationship. We talked on the difficulties of starting/running thinktank in China. Intl. Relations not an area of my research so my skepticism is qualified but here are some interesting charts.
2. This chart illustrated the way Chinese experiences America differently from how Americans experience China, which is mainly brandless "made in China" goods.

Chinese didn't consume as much "made in America" goods as they buy more goods from American firms operating in China.
3. As I have tweeted before on a China/India supermarket chain comparison, Walmart is the 4th largest supermarket chain in China. And this is true across many other industries where US firms have top brand recognition.

North Korea accused the Biden administration of raising military tensions with #China through its “reckless” backing of #Taiwan, and said that the growing U.S. military presence in the region constitutes a potential threat to the North.…
In comments carried by state media, North Korea Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong Ho criticized the United States for sending warships through the Taiwan Strait and providing Taiwan with upgraded weapons systems and military training.
The United States’ “indiscreet meddling” in issues regarding Taiwan, which the North sees as entirely a Chinese internal affair, threatens to touch off a “delicate situation on the Korean Peninsula.”

EL Socialismo del siglo XXI
Hay un auge de las ideas socialistas en Latam, por ello vamos a explicar de dónde salió el concepto de #SocialismoSigloXXI y quiénes son sus exponentes, ideólogos y defensores, de una ideología que solo ha traído hambre, dolor y muerte.💀
Abro Hilo
El #SocialismoSigloXXI es un concepto originalmente formulado en 1996 por el sociólogo alemán Heinz Dieterich #Steffan.…
El #SocialismoSigloXXI surgió como “producto de la reflexión sobre el socialismo soviético-oriental del siglo XX”

[1/3] Some thoughts re #FATF Decision to retain 🇵🇰 on Gray List:

1. It's OK. This, too, shall pass.

2. Partly our mistake (slow to realize seriousness) & partly circumstances (geo-politics, "Absolutely Not") have brought us to this point.
[2/3] 3. We need to get our house in "order" - fast! (economy, civ-mil relations, political stability etc.)

4. We need an aggressive foreign policy outreach. Our neighborhood first & then aggressive outreach to #China, #Turkey, #Iran #Russia etc.
[3/3] Lesson: we must learn to walk without crutches & stand on our own feet. Like individuals and families, only those nations are respected that are financially independent. Remember how the world jumped in to liberate Kuwait in first Gulf War?

Bitter Truth:

#Pakistan is being economically squeezed and made an example out of by the #UnitedStates through IMF, for its overt Geopolitical alignment with #China, and for its "failure" to join China containment strategy. China on the other hand is no where to be seen.
United States through IMF, FATF and other means is making it unsustainable for #Pakistan to maintain a geostrategic partnership with Beijing. They're creating a horrible example out of Pakistan to warn other regional countries against forming alliances with China.
In this context, China should have ensured economic stability in #Pakistan, but instead Pakistan is forced to return to IMF, agree to harsh economic terms and drift further into the Western economic pressure. If China is unwilling to act, Pakistan will be forced to reevaluate.

1. At the hour of death the Masses you have heard will be your greatest consolation. Every Mass will go with you to judgment and plead for pardon.

#HolyMass #DailyMass #news #DailyDevotional #uk #Christmas #China #Christianity #CatholicTwitter #Twitter Image
2. At every Mass you can diminish the temporal punishment due to your sins, more or less according to your fervour.

Assisting devoutly at Mass you render to the Sacred Humanity of Our Lord the greatest homage. You afford to the souls in Purgatory the greatest possible relief.
3. You are preserved from many dangers and misfortunes which would otherwise have befallen you.

You shorten your Purgatory by every Mass.

Aunque todavía depende del carbón, #China es, con gran diferencia, líder mundial en energía solar y eólica. El desarrollo en renovables desde 2010 ha sido enorme. Y eso se nota también en la contaminación de sus ciudades, que se ha reducido considerablemente.
En 2020 la solar supuso el 10% de la energía de #China. Un estudio liderado por Harvard cree que podría proveer el 43,2% de la demanda eléctrica en 2060 a un precio mucho más barato que el carbón. Enormes plantas solares como esta marina se multiplican.
"China es ahora un gigante de la energía limpia. Su dominio del mercado, desde paneles solares a coches eléctricos, requiere una planificación a largo plazo y un nivel de inversión que solo el control estatal ofrece", afirmó sorprendentemente Bloomberg.
