I'm worried about where US-China relations is now headed on North Korea.

And not just North Korea. South China Sea. Tariff war. And globally, on US-Russia, as well as the Gulf. A few observations on some key turning points on global geo-political and economic risk.

It’s in America’s strategic and economic interests for President Trump to build on Prime Minister Modi’s visit to Washington and strengthen US-India ties.

India has not been on the Trump Administration’s radar for the first five months. It’s time that it was. This is a relationship which the Trump Administration should be able to make work. Common strategic interests are large, including... View more »

Thoughts of Mei Mei Volume 7 : One of the deep wisdoms of living in contemporary America is that if you live in the household of a foreigner, even an Australian, its best just to do your best to just blend in. Qing Qing and I have been practicing camouflage techniques in the back yard. But here's the rub: if we go to Australia, we're buggered too because we won't pass Dutton's new Citizenship...

Some in the US Administration seem to be puzzled by the volume of global reaction to the decision to walk away from the #ParisAgreement on climate change. They don’t seem to understand that by its very nature, this decision is not just an American decision. It affects the entire planet. And that’s because the US is the world’s second largest polluter.

That’s why people increasingly see... View more »

Given US decision on climate, US state and city governments and corporations must now fill the gap. State governments with powers of regulation can do much. City governments in terms of public transport energy sources can do much. But the real kicker here lies with what shareholders and institutional investors now do with major American corporations enforcing sustained change in energy... View more »

Thoughts of Mei Mei Volume 6.

I have just looked at the flood maps for Manhattan in the NewYork Times in the event of the melting of the Antarctic ice cap. Sea levels up 6 metres. So I figured that the future of Manhattan real estate is not just location, location, location. It's elevation, elevation, elevation.

Thoughts of Mei Mei Volume V.

It is now fashionable here in the United States to squash uncomfortable news stories as soon as they appear. Regrettably my twin sister Qing Qing tends to take these things quite literally. Not the sharpest tool in the shed our QingQing. But I didn't wish to offend a member of the family. So I just played along. At least that's my story and I'm sticking to... View more »
