Fresh update on "asia" discussed on Bloomberg Business of Sports

"To bring us up to speed on why albertina torso Paris transport reported with Bloomberg news. Albertina, thank you for being on the Bloomberg business of sports. I have to say it's a big disappointment and this adds to all the tensions that we are seeing right now. In China, which are related to COVID persistence, the reason for the scrapping of the grace, which was supposed to take place in April sometime in April, just adds to all the pain that we're seeing right now in China, China has adopted a zero COVID policy. There are people on the streets right now that are protesting against these persistent restrictions. I think the rest of the world and other parts of Asia have moved on have COVID under control. But this policy remains in China. There are protests, they started in some apple plants. We heard about those, for example, we are hearing about protests and taking citizens taking to the streets, even on university campuses. They are venting their anger and anger and frustrations on local efficient and the Communist Party. So really putting China under pressure and a Formula One, as you were seeing before, these races are a big moment of joyfulness. And the Singapore one that took place recently after years of pandemic related restrictions really was a big, a big affair for the city for the island, the big party. And also a massive opportunity for hotel operators for actual conferences. Bankers rushed to Singapore to party to meet there is a big need to celebrate and obviously sports as we're also seeing where the World Cup right now are always a reason to celebrate, but also a money making opportunity for businesses. So yes, a big disappointment, even though to be honest, that the news had been circulated, but Formula One only confirmed that the Grand Prix in China is craft for 2023. And our Tina remind us when the last time the Chinese Grand Prix took place because it's been a number of years now. COVID-19 really spread in late December of 2020. Right no, late December 2019. Sorry, it's been a couple years. But you're right. So next year, we're talking here the season of 2023, right? Which it has a bit of a different calendar. It will start around the first race will be March 5, 20, 23, and so 2023 will actually be the fourth year of absence of a circuit race from a Chinese delay, was hosted in Shanghai in April 2019. So once again, these are it's a long stretch. And some of these cities, some of these countries have actually lost out. It's not super easy after to come back. I mean, there always will be demand to go to China. It's not only it's not only sports, that is interested in China, one of the other areas I've talked closely is luxury shops are still closed. Lockdowns. So as soon as China reopens, there will be demand, but once again, when you've been absent from a sport for many years, there was a contract that has been extended to China to host the Formula One races there. One more year. But afterwards, those contracts end. And will there be demand to be there? There is many other venues that are dying to actually really put and come forward. For these races, because once again, a race is sports, but it's not always sports. It's also business. So it's going to be interesting to see that China slot that next year is now MD who will step in to fill the ten. Do you think this is the reason that Matthias benotto split from Scuderia Ferrari? No, I'm just kidding. I'm still. Now, seriously though, seriously though, what is the impact on F one in the upcoming season? I mean, who's going to get a who's going to get a circuit here who's going to get a raise who benefits who loses here? Yes, it's a very good question here when we're talking of Formula One races. Look, let's speak about where the race could take place. Formula One since September announced a very ambitious calendar of races. It's going to be 24 races for 2023. It's a record. So this is very interesting. Paris transport reporter with Bloomberg news on the news that Grand Prix and F one have canceled the race in China due to COVID albertina, thank you so much for joining us right here on the Bloomberg business of sports.

US forces monitor Mideast skies at Qatar base amid World Cup

"At an air base in Qatar, U.S. troops are carrying out their usual mission of watching Middle Eastern airspace and keeping an eye on the World Cup, too. It's an exciting time to be here in Qatar with the World Cup right down the road. At all you need air base outside Doha, air force lieutenant colonel Aaron barilla says the games are on just about every TV in the air operations center. Not the ones monitoring the air picture, but the others. Some airmen like captain K shell trudell have gone to the games. She'll be at the U.S. Netherlands match tomorrow. Really looking forward to cheer on Team USA again with the red white and blue. Others watch at the base's main watering hole. Soccer's governing body is letting the American forces network air the matches. It's all a rare dose of the outside world for troops at a base once considered so sensitive. The Pentagon referred to it only as being somewhere in Southwest Asia. Sagar Meghani, Washington.

Desperate for Oil, Biden Turns To Venezuela

Desperate for Oil, Biden Turns To Venezuela

"If you haven't heard the news yet, the vitamin administration is now going to allow Chevron big American oil company to pump oil out of Venezuela. So what's unusual about that, you might say, is, well, the fact that we had previously been sanctioning Venezuela because we have repeatedly accused the regime there of being a dictatorship. You see, we have recognized a totally different politician and totally different guy Huang Guaido as the real president of Venezuela. So now we're doing a deal with Nicolas Maduro. And the reason we're doing it, let's be honest, is because we have to. We absolutely have to. I am a realist and I've said all along, it really hasn't made a ton of sense to treat Venezuela like such an enemy in light of the fact that they're so close to us. I mean, let's just go back to the Monroe doctrine for a second, right? They're right here in our hemisphere. You're talking a few hours from Florida and for some reason we've treated them in a more hostile way than we treated Russia until recently. In a more hustle way than we've treated countries like Iran. So why the change now? What's so special about this moment in time? Well, oil prices are through the roof. And it just so happens that this week they're likely going to go even higher because now these sanctions we are putting on European countries and others Vis-à-vis Russia, they're going to go into effect. And that means you're going to have even less energy on the market. And so what do they do? Well, they get all this oil sitting down there in Venezuela, and it's getting sold anyway, frankly, illegally on the black market. I've walked you through this whole triangle before. Because you're a Caribbean island where they switch the flags on the ships, and then those container ships filled with oil, go over to Asia where again, they switch the flags and then they go eventually to China. My sources have walked me through this and I've walked you through this. The oil is making its way onto the global market in one way form or another.

The Total Incompetence of President Joe Biden

"I want to talk about the mental incompetence, well, there's also physical and competence. The overall incompetence of our dear leader, Joe Biden. Now, interestingly, when Trump was president, they were all over him for the slightest misstep, or the slightest mispronunciation. You remember the big controversy over Trump using the pronunciation thigh land, not instead of Thailand. Thailand. People would, this was outrageous. He doesn't even know how to say Thailand. And now this is a complex matter and I kind of got involved in that contour. I pointed out, first of all, that virtually everybody on the entire continent of South Asia pronounces it by land. They pronounce it the way it's spelled. They pronounce the H now, interestingly, in the Thai language, there is no real H and so they say Thailand. But that is simply an anomaly of the Thai language. Let's remember that the names of different places are pronounced differently around the world. The French say Paris, we say Paris. And so it goes same with Italy venezia and we say Venice. And so you would think that all of this is like a triviality. Why are you getting on Trump? But this just shows you how they were like, let's get them on that. Now with Biden, what's increasingly obvious is that this guy is a mental infant. Or at least he has to be treated like a mental infant. You might remember some months ago, a notecard surface. Biden sort of clumsily held it where you could see it. And it was reproduced on social media and on TV and I did a segment on it and it said things like take your seat. As opposed to going and sitting in someone else's seat and the kind of instructions you'd give to Debbie Todd elementary school to kind of the kind of instructions you would give to like a 5 year old. Listen, take your seat. Don't speak unless spoken to. Things like this. And Benny Johnson on social media had something yesterday where the same thing happened to second time. Biden had a notecard. Apparently turned in a certain way so you can actually read the note card and the note card has it's like an all caps. Again, it has that notion that we're talking to somebody who's really not all there. We have to treat this person. So here are a few of the instructions, one, you will take a photo. And the U is all caps, as if to say Biden might be confused about who's you will take a photo. You will sit. You is all caps. Again, you will deliver opening remarks. So this is a, this is an embarrassment.

We Are Living in a Society of Minority Privilege

"Although we hear AD nauseum about white privilege. The fact is we are living in a society of minority privilege. Now, minority privileges too broad a term because not all minorities are included in minority privilege. Jews are a minority, but they don't have minority privilege. Asian Americans are a minority. In fact, they're a smaller minority than either a blacks or Hispanics, but they don't have minority privilege. Minority privilege is reserved for a really three groups. Blacks. Native Americans and Hispanics. Now, universities claim that they have to engage in racial preferences. Because that is the only way to produce roughly proportional representation. What the Harvard lawyer told the Supreme Court. He wants a Harvard that looks like America. Not a Harvard the things like America, not a Harvard that reflects the intellectual diversity of America, not a Harvard in which let's say Republicans and Democrats are equally represented among the students or on the faculty, not a Harvard where there's religious diversity, and so for example, there would be evangelical Christians represented, let's say at their purport. No, no, no, no, no. Harvard's concern basically is on primarily the race front, but they're also big, of course, into gender and sexual orientation. Now, why is it important to have a Harvard that looks like America? Let's think about it. You've got a lot of areas of American life that don't look like America. There are parts of America, Silicon Valley doesn't look like America. If you go to Silicon Valley, you have a huge number of Asian Americans. In fact, by and large, if you look at all the different types of restaurants and companies like Microsoft, it seems like this is just like little Asia. You got like Chinese restaurant over here. You've got Indian restaurants over there, Japanese sushi over here, reflecting the population of people who work there.

"With the Sims and some way to develop a scent. Asia, which gel technology products do you use? So what we've been using, which is really just streamed line our entire warehousing and operations process is the Dell XPS laptop. We've had it for, I think, coming up on a year and a half now, and it runs extremely brand new, our operation manager loves it. And we use it pretty much to carry the entire business from the back end. To fruition. So we would not be able to live without our dough XPS. Yeah, how does that work? Explain to me how this system works. Sure. So we actually handle everything from concept idea through manufacturing to actual launch of product. So internally, of course, since we're a product based company, it's very, very important that all of our logistics, all of our warehousing, all of our inventory management is handled very, very efficiently with tools that are able to support the level of detail that we need. So in our warehouse facility, our operation manager in our lab manager uses our Dell XPS every single day to just be able to track inventory when we need to reorder products when any type of processing kind of collapsed if we're behind on schedule of releasing a new batch of product, then everything is just handled within that computer. And since it's really lightweight and portable, it's great because we can kind of just throw it in our bag as we need to drive from one location to the next if we need to drive to the warehouse back from the lab. It's always with us at any given point. And it's really just been better than using paper clipboard as well as any other type of laptop that isn't really as portable. It just gives us the flexibility to get the jobs done when we need them done. What's the greatest single challenge to marketing scent in this increasingly digital world? The single greatest challenge of marketing scent in the digital world is just finding a way that it resonates with the customer at the end because you can sell the idea of send, but as we've discussed earlier, it's a very, very personal thing. So we only take the story up to 50% based on what our vision is and we really work with our community to fill that last 50% because at the end of the day it is what's most important and most relevant to you and we think the best people that are able to communicate that experience are our customers themselves. As we leave you, I'd love to know your advice for young entrepreneurs looking to launch a brand in this increasingly digital world. Advice. This is always a fun question because it changes every single day. I'm like, if you're a young entrepreneur and you haven't started yet, right? I would say that it's good to feel fear, but don't over rationalize your fear. Don't try to explain what the fear is. Acknowledge the fear and continue forward. And take the risk because you'll never know if you don't try. You're delightful. I wish you so much luck with it. It's incredible brand and I really, really enjoyed researching it and I really looking I'm looking so forward to using it. Amazing, thank you so much Susie. Take care so nice to meet you.

To learn about what's being done to control the spread in Asia, we are joined by Natasha Khan. She's a reporter based in Hong Kong. Welcome. Thank you for having me. Thanks for being here. Some of these steps seem quite severe. So tell us how widespread is the new variant across Asia right now. So far, these moves that we've seen seem to be more of a preemptive moves rather than moves to contain any rapid spread of a Macron in the region, as of Monday night, we've seen at least three cases in Hong Kong and 5 in Australia. Though the situation across the region is still developing as countries move to look into confirmed cases and the variance of those cases. Although it's possible that in the coming days, we'll see more cases as countries move to sequence known cases in their respective countries. Is there a sense that these restrictions are appropriate? I think right now, as you know, there's just been so many fast developments over the last few days and given that we're almost two years into this pandemic, it seems that many countries are adopting the strategy of being better safe than sorry. So the developments over the last two days in Asia in terms of the pause of reopening plans seem to really be a response to a fear of a wider spread of this variant which we're still really trying to find out what the potential dangers can be. What's the risk? I think in terms of the risk, obviously, throughout this whole pandemic, countries, around the world have been grappling with the best sort of puzzle of figuring out the puzzle of how to balance economic costs with the spread of the virus and obviously in the last few weeks, we've seen several countries in the region which had been closed off to the world for such a long time. Really begin to open up. And so the developments of the last few days have really been, I guess disappointing for some people, for example, Australia was supposed to have its next phase of reopening on Wednesday, and now that's going to be delayed for two weeks. So I guess the risk is that this is just an ongoing weight on the economy on more open borders. At the same time, I think, after so many different waves of the virus around the world, I think many leaders are just unwilling to take the risk of not doing anything, given that the alarm was sounded quite quickly in this instance, which allowed countries to take action to try to slow outbreaks of the variant in their countries. Are some countries going to be more affected by the return of these rules than others? I would say, obviously, this is still a developing story, so it's hard to tell whether these measures really are temporary or if they will linger for longer as you know, we've seen, obviously in the last two years, sometimes the expectation and the reality there's been some discrepancy there at the same time I suppose maybe I would say in this part of the world, there have been just so many months where these conditions of sort of closed borders, tougher, entry requirements have been enforced that perhaps the disruption might not be as stark as it might be in some other places in the world. When we're considering countries like Indonesia and Thailand, which had just in recent weeks really been starting to open up again to tourism, hoping for those tourism dollars, which are integral parts of their economy. That is a concern because for Indonesia's case in response to this new variant, they've now extended the quarantine time for all foreign travelers from three days to a week. Of course, there's China, which is where COVID-19 was first detected. Its borders have been shut for basically the duration of the pandemic, is China better suited to ride out this new variant right now than the other countries in Asia. Oh, I would say definitely China is really well placed to write out this new emergence of this new variant, given that it's already been adopting extremely strict border controls for the most part of the pandemic. In recent weeks, there was a outbreak of the delta variant in multiple provinces in China and the country has really been going to extreme lengths to contain these outbreaks, including lockdowns of neighborhoods or extensive contact tracing and given that they have such a extensive system to track and try to contain outbreaks. I think that China's quite well placed with the emergence of this new variant. Given that it's really one of the only, I mean, it really is the only major economy that's still adopting a zero tolerance for COVID approach. I think China's mechanism is quite strong and has quite a lot of tools in its toolbox to tackle this outbreak. Natasha Khan is a reporter based in Hong Kong. Thanks for your time. Great. Thank you so much. And finally, the story of an entire country that learned to love movie popcorn without the movie..

"And that wasn't an uncommon experience when I was starting to do research for the book. The title of the book to go back to the question was something that came up from so many other people, they would say these things like Philippines are like the Mexicans of Asia, Philippines are like the Latin Asians or the Hispanic Asians. And this was not like anybody's attempt to try to save Filipinos should just be lumped into the Latino category. This was just like the way that people were able to sort of crystallize this unique position of Filipinos, Vis-à-vis Asians and Latinos in the U.S.. For sure. And you're talking about an aspect of the kind of racial ambiguity of Filipinos that I think a lot of people try to understand right now that kind of lends itself to Filipinos, exclusion from the typical AAPI title. We've written about, you know, this idea that Filipinos feel a connection to Asian American nest in different ways and at different times in different contexts. And you know, personally, for me, I've had sort of complex feelings about how to access communities of solidarity that have sort of build up around the Asian community right now and within the Asian community because I don't read as AAPI, you know? And even if I was full filipina, I wouldn't read as AAPI. For you, in this moment, when there's this sort of show of solidarity, and it's supposed to be this really powerful moment of unity. I mean, how do you personally engage in those communities when it can sometimes still feel pretty exclusionary? I think about all the anti Asian violence that is happening. And fairly recently in front of one of the grocery stores that my parents go to an eagle rock, there was a woman who quote unquote looks Asian, you know, but was a Mexican American. 70 year old woman that was attacked because she looked Asian. I think about all the anti Asian violence, not just the attacks, but the fact that it's Philippine a nurses that are the ones that are literally dying to save lives. In some ways, that's like an attack in and of itself too because you think about who are the ones who are most likely to be put in vulnerable situations,.

"Making cheese meats or gossip with each other. And so it just became the norm for all of my classmates to have parents that migrated from the Philippines or some other country. Maybe like Mexico or El Salvador. So I never really thought about how important of a role that played into why I started becoming a writer, but looking back and comparing the experiences of other Asian Americans that they grew up in places where there were fewer Asian Americans around, or there were predominantly white. You know, I just didn't have that same experience. And I think my fervor to want to research and write about Filipino Americans in some ways grew out of that childhood experiences in ways that I'm only starting to realize now. That's so cool. So I mean, you are a writer. You wrote a book called Latinos of Asia. Can you talk a little bit about that title and where that title comes from? You know, when I went to college, I went from living in Iraq, which is like 20% Filipino to I went to Stanford for undergrad, and there was like 20 Filipinos in the entire first year class. And so that was a very weird experience because I think most of the other Asian American students at the time were mostly East Asian, Korea and Chinese American. Maybe like a good number of Vietnamese students, but Filipinos were pretty low in number. And I think that culture shock of going to an undergrad where folks didn't know how to place me, right? It made me second guess myself so much. If I felt like my white classmates didn't find any value of what I was talking about, it affected my level of confidence in the classroom too. So I found myself really struggling in school. And it was actually in taking ethnic studies like Asian American studies, Latino studies, chicano studies, African American studies. I feel like those were the first classroom environments where I was able to curd front these questions of identity. And in my first year of college, I saw an essay that was published by a graduate student from UC Berkeley. Her name is Elizabeth pizarro. She now has her doctorate, of course. But she wrote this es on a blog that I happened to come across back in the year 1999. Where she said something like sometimes it feels like Filipinos aren't really Asian because of this long history of Spanish colonialism. They have all these cultural markers that are closer to Latinos, Mexican Americans, in particular. And that stood out to me because I grew up in LA and so I was able to sort of witness the cultural overlaps between Filipinos and Latinos like throughout my school experiences, my going to church, my neighborhood experiences. It felt like there were so many things that we had in common from everyday words, the strong connection to Catholicism. And then of course, our last names, like my last name so compo, my classmates last names were like Rodriguez and Torres and Gonzalez and there would be classmates who were both Filipino and Mexican with the same last name. And so I often thought in my head like Filipinos have this link with Latinos that I feel like doesn't get flushed out enough when I was taking Asian American studies classes or whenever I would read stories on the LA times of The New York Times about Asians. It often did it include Filipinos. So basically, I spent most of college like writing essays like very confused essays trying to work out what was going on..

"Today. I know a lot of focus is on the talks. In switzerland regarding iran's nuclear program secretary kerry and when he sherman and other colleagues who there as we speak and that no one is much watching more closely than the countries of central asia. Iran's historic and cultural ties to the region or deep and longstanding and for countries that are increasingly focused on their connectivity to the rest of the world around stances at the gateway europe as well as maritime route to asia but the region's unique complexities. Don't stop at. Its border with iran from his position at the heart of asia the region looks out to china. And it's growing economic influence. It supports afghanistan's cautiously hopeful transition and it hedges against russia's renewed aggression and it warily guards against the growing poll of extremist ideology among youth china looms large in the region with the sanitation Ambitious plans to advance. Asian connectivity through overland and maritime routes. It's committed tens of billions of dollars to building roads and rails to better connect its factories and markets in asia and europe. And we support these efforts to connect the region but we also urge that they advanced trade in all directions and adhere to international norms. we don't see china's involvement in central asia zero sub terms it's development of infrastructure in central asia can be fully complementary to our own efforts and in particular we see an important role for china in supporting the transition. Afghantistan and advancing its own integration into the broader asia region on the other hand russia's actions on its periphery including its violation of the Integrity and sovereignty of ukraine threaten the very foundation of international order not only in the region not only in europe but beyond around the world as russia and the separatists that had continued to destabilize eastern ukraine. They're doing more than violating the borders of one country. They are threatening the fundamental principles that we all have a stake in defending in europe and indeed around the world. The principle that borders and territorial integrity of democratic state cannot be changed by force that it is the inherent right of citizens in a democracy to make their own decisions about their country's future that linguistic nationalism something. We thought was confined to the of history and not be allowed to be resurrected and that all members of the international community especially its leading members are bound by common rules and should face costs if they don't live up to the solemn commitments that they make and i wanna come back briefly. Something i mentioned a minute ago which is The successor states to the soviet union giving up the nuclear weapons they inherited when the soviet union dissolved as i noted besides kazakhstan belarus in ukraine with a tour of the countries that inherited these weapons and gave them up and in the case of ukraine. It did so in exchange for assurances from three countries that its territorial integrity and sovereignty would be respected those three countries with the united kingdom the united states and russia. What does it say not only to ukraine but two countries around the world when those solemn assurances can be torn up and totally ignored. What does it say at this very moment. When we are seeking to convince iran to forego nuclear weapons in the future when it considers the commitments that they have made in the past and wonders about the enduring nature those commitments into the future. So there's a lot at stake in russia's actions in ukraine that we need to continue to stand up for now they're obviously costs to the pressure that we're exerting on russia protections in ukraine. And we know that these costs reverberate around the region and while the nations of central asia understand the dangers posed by russia. Better than most there are also feeling the impact of russia's economic weakness more than most we understand that zayed and we're committed to leveraging our own economic tools to help centralization diversify their economies and interlinked their markets. We do not ask any country to choose ties with the us to the exclusion of anyone else. We reject the false choices imposed by anyone else. We fully support the aspirations of central asian states to pursue a multi vector foreign and economic policy. We know that the threat of violent extremism is yet another growing danger for the region earlier this year. The united states hosted the countering violent extremism summit to kickstart a global conversation on the most effective ways to disrupt and destroy isis financing. Recruitment efforts and the broader challenge of violent extremism both kazakhstan and kirghistan. Since high level delegations to the summit khazakstan committed to host a regional cv summit for south central asian countries. Summer the summer that we held washington not only consider the challenge of countering extremism as it exists today but also preventing it reaching the large pool of alienated young men and women susceptible to the siren call of extremism by giving them more economic and political opportunities. It's a challenge that requires all of us to take stock to ensure that we're fostering societies in which all citizens feel that they have a stake in this atmosphere of uncertainty. It can be tempting to turn inward to build high walls to close borders but the very geopolitics that gives central asian states cause for anxiety also incentivize them to embrace a new and different kind of future are continued engagement and the long-term security and prosperity of the region depend ultimately on the choices the central asian states make today to try to seize this future and live up to the aspirations of their own.

"And it took medicine. We've helped the government established modern border control checkpoints with state of the technology to combat smuggling and to fight human trafficking by deepening. These security partnerships were also investing in a stable foundation for central asia to unlock. It's great economic potential. The images of the old silk road when central asia was truly at the crossroads of civilization does not have to be just an emory passed can become prologue today. Central asia's not only bursting with resources but brimming with youthful entrepreneurial potential a full half of its population is under the age of thirty and in his status as she could stand around. A third of the population is actually closer in age to twenty to deliver on the aspirations of this new generation. We want to help central asia build solid basis for prosperity by integrating it into a global rules-based system. That's why we've been supporting extends efforts to join curious standards if he can stand as members of the world trade organization and we expect this long sought goal to be realised this year. Our nation's businesses their talent and technological leadership can play an essential role in helping the region develop its own culture of innovation and entrepreneurship and we will continue to build these connections on both sides of the world. The united states recently hosted a delegation from turkmenistan's power sector khazakstan will host an investment forum for us companies the summer. Now despite these efforts. I think everyone recognizes in central asia. Still has a long way to go in building a more open. Cooperative and connected market. The fosters true entrepreneurship and delivers benefits to ordinary people. The region remains one of the least integrated in the world with only about six percent of its total trade occurring within central asia. And as a result it's on people are not benefiting from this enormous potential. That's why as part of the new silk road initiative. The united states is helping develop the region's connectivity.

"Might we do a lot of forgetting and and it doesn't seem that people who study the history of a much better vision of what to do than other ones other people zelko demure and he said it wasn't question stained patterns or templates. It was a question of sitting problems and of how other people confronted problems which is very interesting way. I think of looking at them at sure. I've heard people talk about like that before And of course the whole this whole book is is about People can russians confirming the problem of asia credit problem russian nece and many in some ways and then trying to making hatching grand plans to deal with it. All of which either don't work at all or as said with the bolsheviks and china worked in the most unexpected ways do you. I mean what is it like. Study history of failure or an accelerated. Victory i mean what's the value of that why i would say a couple of things i think. I is is a realization of limits that are likely to be binding or at least might be binding in many different contexts. I i'm struck by even in a study. That is fundamentally about politics. Which which this book is the ways in which geography and logistical factors. Just fundamentally important at every step of the way and it's easy. I think to today to think we've somehow got got past limits of geography in our age of zooming. But that certainly not true. I and so i think that's that's one thing that really does stand out to me. There's always a new technology. That's promising to abolish distance and transform. Logistics i mean you begin the book with peter the great dream of going through the arctic ocean to china. And guess who's dreaming about that now. Currently the russians awesome about this. And who's to say this time. He might have global warming inside. But i kind of thinking he'll be no more successful than all the previous people for complex reside. I would be with you on that bet absolutely absolutely so did it by broken did you. Did you finish your thought. Well as a second way we can try to learn from from studying the history to me. I think the key thing we can drive may be this maps onto what what zelikow talking about is is trying to see the world through the eyes of people in the past because it's hard to see the eyes of the world is people in the present since we've got so many preconceptions about people around us in how they think it's in some ways easier to put on the lenses of of people who live two hundred years ago i find Although you know less about how they thought you've got fewer preconceived notions. You've got to a work through before you can see the role honestly i. I think that's quite helpful. In in envisioning how others see the world from the perspective of of moscow or saint petersburg or or or the pacific coast of russia. Silent was thought experiments.

Thanks for having me so Let's begin where. I just began with that. That vignette of peter the great. Why is that You probably you explain to Those of us like by must people listens podcast. A why is that sir anecdote against the grain. Would when we think of peter the great and either you may think of russian diplomacy More generally we think of its relationship with europe and this is true. Both of the russian historiographer but also of european and american We focus on the napoleonic wars and russia's participation in them we think about russia in world war one world war two which which we remember being is primarily on european frontal that were asian aspects to both those conflicts and. It's certainly true that russia has for several hundred years Fundamentally important player in european geopolitics. It's shaped how the european international order was structured Bud from the perspective of russia hasn't only been about europe and one of the fascinating things that i learned well beginning. This project is the extent to which at certain points but repeatedly throughout history russia's played really decisive role in asia at least for a period of time. And you've got these spasms of activity in asia. i'm starting. I would argue to a certain extent with peter but continuing In the three centuries since then we're russia's devoted a whole lot of energy To asian affairs building an empire on the pacific expanding its influence in china expanding its relations with japan that i think are generally underplayed in our assessments of russian diplomacy. I would argue. You can't really understand russia's role on the world stage without putting asia a bit closer to the center that we've traditionally put it so there is always. This question is russia european country. And you're suggesting that's of course. I mean it's one of those questions. Historians really hate And explain why you this particular historian. I'm talking to y. You hate that. One why i think that the striking thing if you look over the long day from saint petersburg presidental. You could even go before peter. The great is the extent to which the way russians defined europe and the way they defined the land that they referred to as the east which is a phrase that endures in in in russian thinking today..

If you look at most of the futures across the region and the only one that's higher of note is hanging index futures up a scant 2/10 of 1%, but We're down a little bit in a number of the other markets. The reflation trade or reopening trade that has been stumbling over the past many weeks is is partly because of Asian and European economies actually tightening restrictions due to the delta variant and vaccination rates here in Asia have been lagging, and that's just leading to a little bit of caution.

But <Speech_Male> you know that's <Speech_Male> been cited as sort <Speech_Male> of the next phase if <Speech_Male> you like an accent the evolution <Speech_Male> of some of the ideas. <Speech_Male> We've spoken about <Speech_Male> words <Speech_Male> to on that. <Speech_Male> And what that <Speech_Male> opportunity or challenge <Speech_Male> looks like as you <Speech_Male> see it well. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Autonomous driving <Speech_Male> is will be <Speech_Telephony_Male> a game changer <Speech_Telephony_Male> firstly. <Speech_Telephony_Male> When you have a fully autonomous <Speech_Telephony_Male> vehicle <Speech_Telephony_Male> does <Speech_Telephony_Male> it matter if you will the <Speech_Male> owner or <Speech_Male> whether <Speech_Telephony_Male> you it's <Speech_Telephony_Male> part of a fleet <Speech_Telephony_Male> and you'll paying <Speech_Telephony_Male> on a per mile <Speech_Telephony_Male> usage <Speech_Telephony_Male> basis <Speech_Telephony_Male> in asia. There's <Speech_Telephony_Male> a good reason not to be <Speech_Telephony_Male> known because <Speech_Telephony_Male> the state's <Speech_Telephony_Male> expensive <Speech_Telephony_Male> We have a lot of congestion <Speech_Telephony_Male> very <Speech_Telephony_Male> expensive. Parking <Speech_Telephony_Male> spaces a shortage <Speech_Telephony_Male> of parts based <Speech_Telephony_Male> in most <Speech_Telephony_Male> big cities. <Speech_Telephony_Male> So there's there's a strong <Speech_Telephony_Male> incentive <Speech_Telephony_Male> to use <Speech_Telephony_Male> a. You know <Speech_Telephony_Male> an autonomous vehicle <Speech_Telephony_Male> that's part of fleet <Speech_Telephony_Male> and it's also environmentally <Speech_Telephony_Male> friendly <Speech_Telephony_Male> because <Speech_Telephony_Male> it would jesus <Speech_Telephony_Male> congestion. We <Speech_Telephony_Male> all know the private <Speech_Telephony_Male> car ownership <Speech_Male> cost spend. <Speech_Telephony_Male> I think full <Speech_Telephony_Male> percents of its <Speech_Telephony_Male> useful life on <Speech_Telephony_Male> the road and the <Speech_Telephony_Male> other ninety six percent <Speech_Telephony_Male> of the time <Speech_Telephony_Male> so <Speech_Telephony_Male> it's not very environmentally <Speech_Telephony_Male> friendly when we get <Speech_Telephony_Male> these <Speech_Telephony_Male> shod usage models <Speech_Telephony_Male> <Speech_Telephony_Male> that take <Speech_Telephony_Male> lifa china. <Speech_Telephony_Male> I think that could <Speech_Telephony_Male> be something that <Speech_Telephony_Male> take off <Speech_Telephony_Male> now. The issue <Speech_Telephony_Male> with <Speech_Telephony_Male> getting investment exposures. <Speech_Telephony_Male> We <Speech_Telephony_Male> don't actually know <Speech_Male> who <Speech_Telephony_Male> which <Speech_Telephony_Male> we're not sure <Speech_Telephony_Male> which <Speech_Telephony_Male> going to be the key <Speech_Telephony_Male> players in these. <Speech_Telephony_Male> You know managing <Speech_Telephony_Male> rubber <Speech_Telephony_Male> taxi. Fleet <Speech_Telephony_Male> saw autonomous <Speech_Telephony_Male> conflicts. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Whether it's going to be <Speech_Telephony_Male> the software developer <Speech_Telephony_Male> where it's going to be <Speech_Telephony_Male> one of internet john's <Speech_Telephony_Male> but are the only ones <Speech_Telephony_Male> that are <Speech_Telephony_Male> investing in this space. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Obviously at <Speech_Telephony_Male> the moment and <Speech_Telephony_Male> asia. Oem's <Speech_Telephony_Male> this <Speech_Telephony_Male> stage. I <Speech_Telephony_Male> think they don't have <Speech_Telephony_Male> much experience <Speech_Telephony_Male> in fleet management <Speech_Male> or you know <Speech_Telephony_Male> pay per mile <Speech_Telephony_Male> revenue <Speech_Male> models. <Speech_Telephony_Male> And i think <Speech_Male> they <Speech_Telephony_Male> will so <Speech_Telephony_Male> i <Speech_Telephony_Male> think there is an issue <Silence> with. <Speech_Male> Oem's <Speech_Male> basically <Speech_Telephony_Male> having <SpeakerChange> the know how <Speech_Telephony_Male> to develop <Speech_Telephony_Male> these <Silence> robo fleet <Speech_Male> sleep <Speech_Male> models <Speech_Telephony_Male> the moment <Speech_Male> then basically <Speech_Telephony_Male> focused on <Speech_Telephony_Male> supplying <Speech_Telephony_Male> carlse <Speech_Telephony_Male> two companies <Speech_Telephony_Male> to start <Speech_Male> ups the plan <Speech_Telephony_Male> to manage robot <Speech_Male> athletes. <Speech_Telephony_Male> The basic <Speech_Telephony_Male> focus at the moment is <Speech_Telephony_Male> supplying <Speech_Telephony_Male> autonomous vehicles <Speech_Telephony_Male> to these <Speech_Telephony_Male> new startups <Speech_Telephony_Male> soup. I think <Speech_Male> it's a question. <Speech_Telephony_Male> How do you get investment. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Who do you actually invest <Speech_Telephony_Male> in this stage. <Speech_Telephony_Male> Say that the software <Speech_Male> developer <Speech_Telephony_Male> is the internet <Speech_Male> giant. Like i do. That's investing <Speech_Male> in robo <Speech_Telephony_Male> in robot conflicts <Speech_Telephony_Male> always <Speech_Telephony_Male> at the oem <Speech_Male> that supplying them <Speech_Telephony_Male> but we still very early <Speech_Telephony_Male> phase. I mean we don't expect <Speech_Male> l. for <Speech_Telephony_Male> l. five <Speech_Telephony_Male> systems <Speech_Male> to become <Speech_Male> established <Speech_Telephony_Male> until <Speech_Telephony_Male> the end of the decade <Speech_Telephony_Male> So we're some <Speech_Male> time away but it's <Speech_Male> the trend <Speech_Telephony_Male> that isn't invested. <Speech_Telephony_Male> We need to watch <Speech_Male> because it could really <Speech_Male> disrupt the <Speech_Male> oem <Speech_Male> the traditional <Speech_Male> market. Which is <Speech_Telephony_Male> the private <SpeakerChange> car. And <Speech_Telephony_Male> the consumer <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> and that's called beresford <Speech_Male> bringing us to the end of <Speech_Male> this edition of the bulletin <Speech_Music_Male> with ubs setting <Speech_Male> the agenda in a fast <Speech_Male> moving world of finance <Speech_Music_Male> each week here <Speech_Music_Male> on monocle twenty <Speech_Music_Male> four you can <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> listen again and find out <Speech_Music_Male> more at monaco dot com <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> or catch <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> for your preferred <Speech_Music_Male> cows platform <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> the bulletin with ubs <Music> <Advertisement> <SpeakerChange> <Music> <Advertisement> monocle twenty four.

Go jack and rocket internet And kind of naturally led me into the crypto space And it's pretty funny 'cause we started. Qc p kinda garage bond style. We were still at our respective jobs and then our number one day darris went around. The corner is kinda quit and walk back because everything so nearby in singapore that much interesting so just like you're kind of already in the digital destruction space book dowdeswell. What did you say in this whole thing that you left you know. Diamond is a big and very wrestle hedge funds and then you're in the fx small k. You're doing this traditional thing and then you sidestep what was it. So i m a bitcoin back when i was in diamond but be didn't think much about it even bnp. When i started hitting bitcoin. I remember there was once i went through the blinds to declare my bitcoin holdings and the complaint. The comedian sorry. What was bitcoin So so this is back then. The was dummy.

"At a at a premium. Getting the money back from from unsheltered to do Financial korea to back to back to singapore. And that was how we started. It was up to play will doing that for year. And that's actually how we got starting capital together. Why the church exist mean. Firstly as in asia one of the biggest themes around asia is capital controls and If you're korean it's difficult for you to bind markets you know you typically contained within your market And banning korea of was this clown. Sixty seventeen right. Crypto was crazy in korea. People will going on the speculation It became a social problem right You're hearing that kids in university university libraries and all the kids will be there of open and they all trading crypto. No-one is studying right And and you know. Koreans many comes to speculated boba. It's really korea. The moment popular training crypto. They had to actually put in measures to reduce trading. Because it was it. Was that much of a social problem. So they kind of crazy cripple. Bitcoin isa trillion korean. One was easier at a premium the time it. It'll be a time for that premium to die down and it was a large premiums be restarted trading. Bitcoin as julia financial play Before even knew much about it and then slowly deep into the space Solid can't go. We won't bullish view but it was just a pure rb. Trucked funnily enough from korea being the most attractive place to now will be one of the most recruiting with taxes on corrupt though one of the least attractive place is to trade. So just what did you see all of this. Why did you hook up this crazy trader. And think this is something he wants to do to stop. Qc capital eleven. It was an introduction from common friends. And i don't think there was any particular y'all war right now we're gonna go do this And was more an opportunity but came along at the right time And to me you know. I heard about bitcoin By eavesdropping on someone else at a dinner conversation. Now's back in two thousand fourteen. So i don't feel like my path into crypto was particularly well like laid out is pretty typical story But i think the timing made a lot of sense and what happened at that. You know sort of late.

"asia" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Globalist

"Today's special edition of the globalist we are going to focus on asia and what two thousand and twenty one might hold for the region. The obvious answer might seem and will hopefully be almost by definition what with one thing and another a vast improvement but even when asia does not find itself at the epicenter of a global health crisis it remains a complicated part of the world bringing their hostages to fortune to this look ahead to ages. Next twelve months are monocle. Hong kong bureau chief. James chambers monica's. Tokyo bureau chief. Fiona wilson a little later on monaco's bangkok correspondent gwen. Robinson will join us. But first to james and fiona fiona. Let's start with you. In japan as we mentioned in that introduction a new prime minister in office seeking to fill the big shoes and follow the tough act of shinzo are has yet figured out. What kind of prime minister he's going to be is a very good question. I mean i think he's been quite difficult for serger. Falling shinzo obey. Shinzo abe's for all his faults. You know longest serving prime minister in japanese history. So you go quiet trot record. He knows how to win elections. And you know. He survived an awful lot of ups and downs. Scandals also had to deal with the pandemic and ultimately how to deal with illness as well so yeah so quite challenging to come into that role. He started off pretty well. I think his ratings quite good. But i think as people have seen ways handled the pandemic <unk>. Impressed is ratings have dropped. There's also the issue about the olympics. Will it happen waiting to happen. And i think so. Go really backing this. Huge domestic tourism tourism campaign encouraging. People around the country has gone down pretty badly although it has to be said <hes>. Tens of millions of people have been guy around the country so they liked that bit of it. But so i think it's quite a tough time for him and interesting. He has to have an election by next autumn. And i think he's in for a pretty rough ride few under just to follow that up. You did the mention the oh word. If there is one thing that japan hopes it can look forward to in two thousand and twenty one it is the two thousand twenty <hes>. Tokyo postponed because of the obvious right now on new year's day. How likely do they look. It really depends on you. Talk to to be honest. The government would love it to happen. They really wanted to happen dog to the saying we absolutely have to vaccinate everyone. And that's not guaranteed yet. Japan's rollout of vaccinations will be in the spring. And they say you know. We'll have everyone backs in asia by the summer. And if not. I think they are going to have a problem on their hands. There are so many vested interest in the olympics in definitely. The government is under pressure from tv companies. Advertises they want it to happen. Population is still quite lukewarm. I think many people feel it puts this unnecessary pressure on the country. At a time. When is trying to deal with the pandemic. we're still dealing with that joins in hong kong or bring you in now. It being new year's day let's at least out <hes>. Attempting optimism <hes>. As we were just discussing. Japan has one great big blue ribbon event to look forward to hopefully in two thousand and twenty one. Two thousand and twenty was a tough year for hong kong for the same reasons. It was a tough year for everybody but for other reasons. Besides is there anything in particular vet. People in hong kong are looking forward to this year. Yes well we've had a rough couple of years here in hong kong so <hes>. You know when you've hit rock awesome. Which i think that's not hong kong. Has i mean the only way to go his up. So i guess people are looking at s- an economic recovery an a return to business as usual in terms of an making money and getting on that side of things but <hes>. In looking ahead the the rest of the year. I mean there are few big dates to <hes>. To look forward to the the first one would be at the end of this month on the polls in january when the <hes> the uk's visa essentially for the hong kong people comes into play and up to three million on congas could suddenly decamp to britain. So if that happens if the floodgates opened not lovely be a huge event we've oils essentially being stuck in vung most of twenty twenty so <hes>. It's been difficult to town at the moments <hes>. How big that exodus will be. And there's no no re- odds on dejean that which you know. Every time i do meet with hong kong peasant they do generate trying to ask me once. Lights live in the uk <hes>. Just like an schooling an election. Step in where they should live. What's baath liken. Is it better than oxford as there is. There is a genuine interest. But i guess we're waiting to see how many people actually all through with all of the with these <hes>. These moves
