Hong Kong media tycoon Jimmy Lai charged under security law

"Citizens, Jimmy Lai. Lai. Has Has been been charged charged with with endangering endangering Chinese Chinese national national security. security. The The businessman businessman and and media media million million billionaire billionaire who's who's in in prison prison in in Hong Hong Kong Kong at at the the moment, moment, is is the the most most high high profile person to be charged under sweeping new law covering conspiring with foreign forces. And carrying a maximum life sentence. Antony DAP. Iran is a lawyer and writer in Hong Kong who spells out what these charges against Mr Lai mean for the direction of Chinese rule in Hong Kong. He's being charged with colluding with foreign forces under the National security law. It's very significant given that Jimmy Lai is such a high profile figure among of the pro democracy parties in Hong Kong. But it's not surprising. It's always expected that he would be one of the key targets under the law after it was introduced. What sorts of things has, he said about Beijing that have obviously cause such a fence. Well, he has bean very public in calling for sanctions to be imposed on both the Hong Kong and Chinese governments in retaliation for their actions here in Hong Kong, and that is specifically under the law constitute the the act of colluding with foreign forces. And so that's the the the actions that we expect that has got him into trouble This time. It's quite a sweeping law, isn't it? And he's not the first to fall foul of it. That's right. It is a very broad law drafted in such a wide way that it can catch all sorts of act. Devotees are so far there have been four people arrested and charged under the law. None of those cases have yet worked their way through the court system. So we don't yet know how Hongkong's judges are going to define the parameters off this law, but it's certainly potentially could be very broad. Reaching indeed. Can you tell us about the case of a teenage activist called Tony Cheung? Yes, Tony chill has been charged under the National security law for inciting succession and subversion. And this is in relation to social media posts that he's alleged to have made with messages of diligently promoting Hong Kong independence or subverting the government. He's also being charged with it with a number of other offenses, including just today he was convicted off. Desecrating the national flag for snatching a Chinese flag off a pro Beijing demonstrator at a protest. He's also facing other charges resulting from his various protest activities. How successful a warning shot Against other protesters. Do you think that these actions are, it's certainly likely to be very intimidating to other protesters and and pro democracy activists in Hong Kong. This is all part of a much broader campaign by the authorities here to crack down on all forms of dissent, and that has included, of course, arrests under the National Security law and under other Hong Kong laws. It's also included the disqualification of legislators the intimidation of the media a crackdown on the education system. All of this really designed to silence any form of dissent here in Hong Kong, and it certainly is having an effect in terms of intimidating people. I think you've described what's going on in Hong Kong in the moment as CAFTA esque. Maybe you could explain what you mean for those who might not be familiar with the works of France, CAFTA Yes. I mean, what we're seeing in Hong Kong isn't often arbitrary Use off state power or the use of the state and the Lauren and I about predictable and inconsistent ways. And you really see it in the way that the government challenges these pro democracy activists and protesters with all sorts of legal charges, often it being unclear exactly what the behavior is that they're being charged with. So I think for many of the pro democracy community here, it feels a little like they are lost in a sort of Casca narrative, not Quite sure when the Lord is going to to swept upon them. Clearly, Beijing thinks it can do things like charge. Businessman Jimmy Lie with impunity is that the case is standing up for Hong Kong falling down the list of priorities for Western governments. It certainly seems that even if Western governments are inclined to take action, this little action they can take that is likely to have any impact on the Chinese government. And we've seen that with sanctions that the United States has a Lied to both Hong Kong and Beijing government leaders. They seem to have have reacted really with defiance. I'm haven't changed their policies or approaches in Hong Kong. It all have been very dismissive of the sanctions and the impact that they've been having all these leaders. And so even these sorts of very assertive actions are not able to sort of change. Attack that the Chinese government is taking here. I'm not sure what else will and so I think that China certainly regards any action by foreign government as an interference in China's internal affairs, and they've given every indication they don't intend to be influenced by that. Antony Dappy ran in Hong Kong. Meanwhile, a reporter working for the American news agency Bloomberg has been detained by the authorities in China. Hayes fan who's a Chinese national hasn't been in contact with her employers for four days now. Robin Brent is the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai and asked him what more we knew about her detention. Well, the truth is not much or we have is the details coming from the American news agency Bloomberg, which were released late today, on Friday, China Time Now they say they last heard from her in a conversation with her editors before lunch on Monday. They haven't heard from her since. But shortly after that conversation, she was seen being escorted from her apartment in Beijing by blankly. Those police officers and in the intervening four days, Bloomberg say they've been in touch with the government here. They've been in touch with the Chinese Embassy in the United States because hes Fanny's a Chinese national on itwas on Thursday when they discovered confirmation that she had been detained. She had been taken and she was being questioned in relation to allegations off breaching national security and the Chinese authorities have recent form. Don't they were foreign journalists are concerned Australian journalists flown out of China recently. American journalists not having their press cards renewed. Yes, I mean, you know, we could have ah, much more longer and detailed conversation about whether that how this fits in with the diplomatic hostilities between the United States and China. Between China on Australia and the Chinese government's use of its very ambiguous national security law to target people to target journalists for things other than genuine allegations off breaching the law, But look a Chinese born Australian journalists Chen Lei, who worked for the state run TV CT TN station, She was detained several months ago in similar circumstances. She hasn't been seen since. Details about her fate have not been forthcoming. There is some continuation that this may be linked to that, but we just don't know the evacuation as it was off to journalists. Australian journalists a couple of months ago linked to Chang Le's detention Pretty much ended Australia's ability to report from this country. Certainly when it comes to TV, anyway. Yesterday as well was the two year anniversary to the day off the detention on Don't going detention off two Canadians Michael Coverage of Michael's favor. One of businessmen want a former diplomat, two men who were detained by China in China. In the days following the arrest of a very high profile Kuala Way telecom company executive in Canada. So look, it's seen on used frankly, by the Chinese as a tool is a tactic off diplomacy, but I have to say We don't know any details about Hayes fans detention why she's being detained how she was detained where she's being detained because the Chinese authorities are not saying so. They're simply confirming that they have her. What does it say, though about the state of Open reporting in China, particularly by foreign nationals, the foreign correspondent's Club of China Says. It's very alarmed, for instance. Yeah, but it's hard here. It's hard for foreign nationals that believe me. It's even harder for Chinese nationals. Hayes fan is a Chinese national. She's an experienced journalist she's working for Bloomberg. Last three years, but other organizations before that, and she is what's known as a news assistant here. Chinese nationals aren't allowed to be employed to do what I do to report you know, prominently in newspapers or on camera or on the radio. They can only be employed his news assistance. But that is a huge understatement of what they do. I have a Chinese colleague who is my new system and she is absolutely vital to our operation here in Shanghai. That was Robin Brent, who's the BBC's correspondent in Shanghai.

people charged charged with with crimes crimes one one of of the the that that being being sent sent back back to to other other countries countries including including the the mainland mainland China China courses courses with with the the confidence confidence in in the the rule rule of of law law it it tried tried that that people people could could be be prosecuted prosecuted on on trumped trumped up up charges charges in in the the if if they they are are living living in in Hong Hong Kong Kong maybe maybe because because they're they're all all wasting wasting dissent dissent about about the the policies policies you you disagree disagree openly openly occurred occurred with with the the policies policies of of China China criticizing criticizing the the Chinese Chinese government government that that they they could could then then be be extradited extradited to to the the mainland mainland to to face face prosecution prosecution so so these these are are really really tough tough issues issues and and again again on on China China is is I I think think the the holding holding itself itself in in the the world world if if it it takes takes away away the the autonomy autonomy of of Hong Hong Kong Kong and and certainly certainly will will not not help help in in trying trying to to reunify reunify Taiwan Taiwan because because the the people people of of Taiwan Taiwan will will say say how how can can we we ever ever trust trust the the maple maple at at Thomas Thomas is is that that they they might might have have to to maintain maintain the the democracy democracy that that is is very very very very strong strong on on Taiwan Taiwan we we have have the the largest largest economy economy in in the the world world the the United United States States the the second second largest largest China China we're we're gonna gonna have have to to figure figure out out a a way way to to deal deal with with one one another another one one way way or or the the other other can can you you see see a a path path forward forward to to a a constructive constructive engagement engagement with with China China going going forward forward because because I I have have to to say say China China has has not not had had a great a great track track record record of of complying complying with with its its grievance grievance over over the the years years going going all all the the way way back back to to the the WTO WTO I I think think that that the the world world stage stage and and and and and and all all the the other other countries countries which which share share but but China China does does business business has has operations operations as as investments investments and and and and is is a a trading trading partner partner with with all all of of those those countries countries didn't didn't work work with with the the United United States States in in confronting confronting China China United United States States doing doing it it alone alone actually actually hurts hurts Americans Americans actually actually benefits benefits many many of of our our allies allies well well they they have have the the same same concerns concerns this this terrible terrible trade trade war war between between China China United United States States barely barely makes makes American American products products more more expensive expensive in in China China and and so so the the Chinese Chinese the the buyers buyers will will block block you you know know purchased purchased something something from from Germany Germany Australia Australia or or Canada Canada because because it's it's so so much much cheaper cheaper well well those those countries countries have have some some of of the the circle circle I I have have many many of of the the same same concerns concerns about about the the trading trading policy policy the the economic economic policies policies the the lack lack of of intellectual intellectual protection protection the the lack lack of of rule rule of of law law that that we we have have over over China's China's policies policies but but we we should should be be working working in in concert concert with with all all these these other other countries countries the the day day after after China's China's policies policies to to confront confront China China instead instead of of doing doing it it alone alone because because and and these these other other countries countries just just sit sit back back and and their their their their companies companies will will get get all all the the business business because because they're they're they're they're the the products products of of their their companies companies are are so so much much cheaper cheaper whether whether soybeans soybeans from from Brazil Brazil or or whether whether it's it's semi semi conductors conductors from from from from the the E. E. U. U. or or technological technological equipment equipment manufactured manufactured goods goods number number US US steel steel plate plate instead instead of of Boeing Boeing airplanes airplanes this this is is this this general general trade trade war war between between the the United United States States and and China China actually actually benefits benefits many many other other countries countries and and it's it's hurting hurting American American jobs jobs although although it's it's clear clear the the president president trump trump wants wants to to get get China China to to change change its its behavior behavior in in your your experience experience when when you you were were U. U. S. S. ambassador ambassador China China or or more more broadly broadly over over the the years years have have you you seen seen United United States States either either alone alone or or with with others others effectively effectively change change the the Chinese Chinese government's government's behavior behavior I I think think we've we've been been able able to to alter alter the the years years with with different different presidents presidents democratic democratic and and Republican Republican administrations administrations we've we've been been able able to to tone tone down down some some of of their their their their rhetoric rhetoric of of forced forced him him to to be be a a little little bit bit the the slower slower and and more more cautious cautious and and less less confrontational confrontational they they haven't haven't factored factored participated participated at at Parker Parker with with United United States States and and our our allies allies on on a a whole whole host host of of issues issues whether whether it's it's fighting fighting piracy piracy off off the the coast coast of of Africa Africa contributing contributing to to U. U. N. N. peacekeeping peacekeeping forces forces around around the the world world in in fact fact they they are are the the largest largest supplier supplier of of peacekeeping peacekeeping forces forces to to the the United United Nations Nations and and they've they've obviously obviously helped helped chip chip in in in in trying trying to to get get our our branches branches of of developing developing a a nuclear nuclear weapon weapon was was shown shown a a lot lot of of those those international international efforts efforts have have been been successful successful China China has has its its own own ambitions ambitions it's it's feeling feeling gives gives up up power power and and its its success success economic economic technological technological success success and and they they feel feel that that they've they've been been suppressed suppressed and and ashamed ashamed by by western western powers powers for for centuries centuries and and they're they're really really trying trying to to reclaim reclaim what what they they feel feel is is their their place place in in world world civilization civilization but but many many of of their their views views obviously obviously you you are are not not consistent consistent with with the the rest rest of of the the world world and and I I think think that that to to get get them them to to change change to to get get them them to to be be part part of of the the world world community community whether whether it's it's on on trade trade policy policy whether whether it's it's on on military military policies policies respecting respecting other other peoples peoples borders borders and and sovereignty sovereignty we we need need to to have have a a United United front front with with other other countries countries instead instead of of just just doing doing it it by by ourselves ourselves it's it's not not working working thanks thanks to to former former U.

"Hong Hong Kong Kong distance distance planned planned a a massive massive March March in in Hong Hong Kong Kong today today but but they they were were faced faced with with a a formidable formidable array array of of armed armed police police and and were were forced forced to to spread spread out out around around the the city city as as police police arrested arrested over over three three hundred hundred here here for for an an assessment assessment of of the the tensions tensions in in Hong Hong Kong Kong is is M. M. Taylor Taylor Preval Preval he he is is director director of of the the MIT MIT security security studies studies program program so so welcome welcome it's it's great great to to have have you you with with us us give give us us your your sense sense did did basically basically China China win win this this one one today today I I don't don't think think I I don't don't want want this this one one today today I I mean mean the the protests protests have have been been going going on on for for a a very very long long period period of of time time and and this this is is just just one one one one battler battler but but it's it's a a much much longer longer our our war war in in Hong Hong Kong Kong for for for for greater greater independence independence from from China China what what was was the the response response from from the the police police from from the the authorities authorities much much more more forceful forceful than than we've we've seen seen in in the the past past because because they they they they were were trying trying to to get get to to let's let's go go as as a a threat threat finance finance religion religion council council and and anywhere anywhere near near it it right right no no but but but but but but there's there's been been I I mean mean do do these these protests protests have have literally literally been been going going on on for for almost almost a a year year right right and and and and so so today today yes yes perhaps perhaps the the protesters protesters didn't didn't get get to to where where they they wanted wanted to to go go but but in in some some ways ways because because you you are are talking talking about about her her I I think think the the protest protest on on back back right right I I mean mean it it is is very very clear clear that that the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are upset upset with with the the new new legislation legislation proposed proposed in in Beijing Beijing and and they're they're taking taking to to the the streets streets again again even even though though the the virus virus situation situation Hong Hong Kong Kong perhaps perhaps without without fully fully eats eats them them and and that that to to me me I I think think is is almost almost more more important important than than sort sort of of what what happened happened in in in in in in in in in in for for today's today's round round right right and and insist insist it's it's round round after after round round after after his his vision vision care care about about with with the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong upset upset me me what what real real effect effect does does it it have have on on the the vital vital interests interests of of China China itself itself well well I I mean mean for for for for Beijing Beijing right right Bayview Bayview Hong Hong Kong Kong and and and and the the protests protests over over the the last last year year to to the the land land of of opportunity opportunity right right and and then then when when when when Britain Britain I I reverted reverted to to Hong Hong Kong Kong in in in in Britain Britain and and a a training training issue issue in in Hong Hong Kong Kong diversion diversion which which took took place place in in nineteen nineteen ninety ninety seven seven but but it it was was under under this this rubric rubric of of one one country country two two systems systems in in the the one one country country was was tryna tryna therefore therefore Hong Hong Kong Kong was was a a part part of of I I tried tried it it but but there there be be two two systems systems of of governance governance and and within within that that Hong Hong Kong Kong would would enjoy enjoy a a substantial substantial amount amount of of talking talking and and the the protests protests that that have have been been happening happening it's it's in in the the last last year year for for responding responding to to efforts efforts by by I I bet bet you you can can basically basically took took a a certain certain greater greater control control over over a a dead dead inside inside Hong Hong Kong Kong kind kind of of squeezing squeezing that that economy economy so so from from Beijing's Beijing's perspective perspective there there were were writing writing in in my my furnace furnace and and in in my my system system they they over over exaggerate exaggerate the the fact fact that that sort sort of of any any kind kind of of true true independence independence movement movement Hong Hong Kong Kong or or the the fact fact that that might might succeed succeed in in the the main main event event at at the the symbology symbology here here is is important important and and clearly clearly the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong are are kind kind of of standing standing up up to to China China and and and and that that of of course course kind kind of of adaptations adaptations for for other other US US sovereignty sovereignty disputes disputes involving involving China China including including Taiwan Taiwan also also has has implications implications for for domestic domestic politics politics what what is is left left at at this this point point in in your your assessment assessment of of the the two two systems systems as as part part of of the the one one country country two two systems systems some some of of the the United United States States a a look look at at it's it's basically basically gone gone but but is is that that an an exact exact I I think think that that overstates overstates the the situation situation but but clearly clearly I've I've China China has has on on one one level level right right the the national national security security level level are are much much more more forcefully forcefully asserted asserted itself itself it it hasn't hasn't moved moved out out to to sort sort of of take take down down everything everything else else that that makes makes the the Hong Hong Kong Kong what what it it is is today today and and what what makes makes the the system system also also different different from from that that in in the the mail mail about about it it certainly certainly if if adding adding an an extra extra layer layer of of screaming screaming in in actual actual air air pressure pressure also also it it sort sort of of has has been been backsliding backsliding on on on on efforts efforts to to serve serve allow allow other other people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong greater greater autonomy autonomy and and how how did did she she shoot shoot their their chief chief executive executive so so I I think think some some thought thought that that over over the the course course of of time time through through Hong Hong Kong Kong economy economy I I was was going going to to wake wake our our hotline hotline didn't didn't get get it it in in the the agreement agreement that that led led to to Hong Hong Kong Kong reversion reversion to to the the mainland mainland and and and and as as basically basically have have stopped stopped at at the the I I try try to to sort sort of of saying saying look look how how how how you you can can pass pass through through a a town town in in the the but but you you can't can't have have maybe maybe what what you you thought thought you're you're going going to to have have the the and and we we Beijing Beijing and and I I have have the the final final say say on on how how the the territories territories governed governed so so that that it it does does not not impinge impinge upon upon how how the the departing departing Beijing Beijing views views are are kind kind of of sovereignty sovereignty it's it's not not just just the the people people of of Hong Hong Kong Kong were were upset upset about about the the developments developments with with a a fair fair number number of of people people in in Washington Washington both both Republicans Republicans and and Democrats Democrats I I should should say say who who were were also also in in sync sync some some genuine genuine concerns concerns including including today today with with sector sector prepares prepares saying saying he he will will not not certify certify that that Hong Hong Kong Kong is is autonomous autonomous which which as as I I understand understand it it puts puts a a question question it's it's trade trade treatment treatment by by the the United United States States does does that that put put pressure pressure on on Beijing Beijing it it feels feels like like it it hurts hurts Hong Hong Kong Kong more more than than it it does does Beijing Beijing I I think think ultimately ultimately it it will will hurt hurt Hong Hong Kong Kong more more than than hurt hurt gained gained attention attention because because Beijing Beijing views views this this through through the the land land sovereignty sovereignty much much more more than than through through the the lens lens of of finance finance and and economics economics think think back back twenty twenty or or thirty thirty years years ago ago Hong Hong Kong Kong was was greater greater China's China's financial financial sector sector right right it it was was it it was was sort sort of of the the engine engine of of of of a a kind kind of of coastal coastal economy economy would would be be under under close close he he played played an an enormous enormous role role in in China's China's opening opening reform reform but but now now try try as as much much wealthier wealthier too too much much stronger stronger and and then then many many people people try try to to talk talk about about how how they'd they'd like like to to see see John John hi hi I I play play the the role role that that Hong Hong Kong Kong once once before before and and so so it it just just pushes pushes out out more more companies companies into into trying trying to to intentionally intentionally high high I I don't don't think think Beijing Beijing will will necessarily necessarily be be that that it it is is active active if if of of course course some some businesses businesses may may choose choose to to go go alternate alternate and and and and and and and and I I think think you're you're asking asking the the board board to to the the greatest greatest beneficiary beneficiary that that regard regard it it was was this this in in some some sense sense is is inevitable inevitable that that would would happen happen or or his his timing timing something something important important here here well well the the word word is is world world is is consumed consumed of of attack attack Pendek Pendek does does that that give give president president G. G. and and division division and and opportunity opportunity I I don't don't think think it it does does my my view view is is that that the the situation situation Hong Hong Kong Kong has has been been deteriorating deteriorating for for the the last last six six years years or or so so the the last last twelve twelve months months right right with with the the practice practice that that we we talked talked about about at at the the start start of of the the segment segment it's it's it's it's been been quite quite intense intense and and from from Beijing's Beijing's perspective perspective the the government government Hong Hong Kong Kong is is unable unable right right basically basically I've I've I've I've bring bring those those protests protests to to land land and and return return stability stability to to the the territory territory and and so so many many of of us us who who who who watched watched the the situation situation how how come come thought thought that that China China would would do do something something and and they'll they'll probably probably do do something something this this spring spring especially especially after after one one third third of of the the coronavirus coronavirus situation situation began began to to ease ease I'm I'm not not sure sure hi hi everyone everyone myself myself included included necessarily necessarily predicted predicted the the National National Security Security wallaby wallaby the the format format the the actual actual tape tape but but but but that that China China is is taking taking action action to to defend defend what what I I believe believe that that if if interested interested call call call call I I don't don't think think I I should should be be surprising surprising and and I I I I don't don't think think it's it's an an effort effort to to take take advantage advantage of of the the server server the the world's world's distraction distraction moreover moreover if if you you look look at at U. U. S. S. China China relations relations and and they they had had never never before before has has the the recommend recommend more more focused focused on on China China than than in in the the last last four four months months right right the the checkout checkout is is being being opportunistic opportunistic and and thinks thinks the the U. U. S. S. is is distracted distracted I I don't don't know know how how they they can can come come to to that that conclusion conclusion we're we're talking talking about about yeah yeah he he I I will will talk talk about about it it I I tried tried all all day day all all the the time time or or what what it it means means but but United United States States cell cell I I I I I I do do think think that that that that that that that that product product products products which which I I think think it's it's fair fair to to say say I I don't don't think think we're we're to to stop stop talking talking about about China China for for example example long long time time to to come come we're we're still still not not done done with with the the national national people's people's Congress Congress right right thank thank you you so so very very much much is is really really great great to to have have you you with with us us today today that that is is MIT's MIT's M.

"Vice president of the company Changchang who recently left Lenovo to work with this smartphone Juggernaut. In the survey survey Chang asked which manufacturers should they collaborate with Nico Canon or Hasselblad. Guess who won. It was Hasselblad by via landslide whose current owner just happens to be China's own. Dji those that make the The drones because this was a Chinese survey makes sense that that most voted for a Chinese owned company. And I guess the Hasselblad still has a premium brand appeal in Asia. But those of us who understand camera design and manufacturing all all that has a blood doesn't really make entire camera systems Like companies like Sony or Canon or even to a certain degree Nikon as these manufacturers. I do actually make lenses. Either way you'll be interesting to see if Zalmi can pull off what did with Leica and Co Brownies smartphone that will appeal to both consumer consumer electronic fans as well as photographers for photographer. The week again. I wanted to pick a Hong Kong. Visual artists. Still here in Hong Kong and recording live inside camera film photo decided to go with a movie director and writer Wong Kar Wai even though he isn't technically a photographer. Whoever like Wes Anderson and Sofia Coppola? If you look at one car wise movie stills they look like like photographs Walker. Wise movies are often considered art films with mood just using off the screen his best work is filmed in his own city of Hong Hong Kong. But he tends to portray with the eyes of an outsider to my favorite films that he has made are in the mood for love and Chongqing Express both critically acclaimed and part of the criterion collection. which is a selection of the most important movies of all time in fact in a BBC Culture Survey Survey of one hundred greatest foreign language films of all time? Three them are from one car. Y to of already mentioned and the other is nineteen ninety. Seven's happy together together like the other previous movie. Directors mentioned Wong works with celluloid and his best work is shot at night with all the colliding and merging lights of Hong Kong's nightlife in fact. It was his movie chungking express that had inspired me to shoot my first photographic series Hong Kong neon using the same film. He we used to shoot the movie. which is Kodak's vision? Five hundred t film and interview Wonka mentioned that when he first moved to Hong Kong from China he struggled struggled to speak Cantonese versus his native Mandarin and so he would often go to the movies. As a refuge. Wong said that at quote it was something that could be understood beyond words. It was a universal language based on images very nice quote as a director. He's more of a street. Greet than a studio style cinematographer. He says he hates working off the scripts often giving his actress rough outlines and improvises ask them to improvise as the movie progresses. He doesn't allow rehearsals and allows the characters to develop while filming. And you can definitely see this in a movie. Movie like Chongqing Express so enjoys films to truly understand his visual work. So there's no need for links to any kind of a show notes. His movie speaks volumes about his ability to see here and tell beautiful stories and thanks for listening to this episode of target steak. Which is my take on photo news this week week next week?

"I'm Matt Greer and I am joined in studio by Motley Fool. Endless emily flipping emily. It is just you and me how you doing it is things have beyond again all right. We'll always great to have you on. We're GONNA talk some big earnings from big bank. And we're GONNA talk about a potential game changer for cannabis. Docs I'm actually going to find out from you. Is it a game changer. Or is it. You know much ado about nothing or somewhere in between but we begin with big big trade news the US China trade deal now under the phase one agreement that was signed on Wednesday China will purchase an additional two hundred billion dollars of goods goods and services over the next two years and exchange the US will reduce tariffs on one hundred and twenty billion in Chinese products. Now Emily this is an eighty six page agreement. So so there's a lot of moving parts. There's a lot more going on here but I think investors have gotten pretty good over the last couple of years. Just shrugging off all the China the US Trade War News. So what does this deal. What does this phase one agreement mean for investors? It's more of a sign of good faith on the part of China and the US than really doing much for investors and for relieving tariffs for the average American consumer you mentioned the stock. Market's been on fire. They're probably not even aware of the links that the trade war has come to and what this deal means for them so the New York Times I put out an interesting article that kind of broke down the cost of the trade war for the average American households. And well you hear big numbers like two hundred billion dollars ars of consumer goods ultimately that trickles down to is depending on your income level. This trade war over the past year has cost the average American family. Emily between three hundred and forty dollars to nine hundred and seventy dollars so despite the fact that the markets have been on fire the average American is spending a a little bit more for a lot of those basic consumer goods this year than they were last year as a result of the trade deal but foreign investors you know we we mentioned the fact that the market's been great there's still lots of strong impacts on these consumer goods companies as a result of the trade worth that we're still seeing but in large part. The market's been on fire because of tech companies that really don't see the day-to-day impacts of the trade war. I do think that looking forward. This might be a good thing for investors who are looking to get into Chinese companies. It could be a cyclical movement. Back into these Chinese companies have largely been abandoned Vanden over the past two years and emily. You are resident expert in China. You lived in China. You studied in China. You are a student of China when you've seen in this trade story play out over the last couple years. What do you think were missing? I think people miss the motivations behind China we for a large part understand the. US's asses motivation. We don't like counterfeit goods. We don't like intellectual property thefts we feel threatened by China's currency manipulation. What have it during the market today? There are concerns from. US consumers about China. But you have to understand where China's position is when they come in and they negotiate things like trade deals and my opinion the single most important thing to remember about China's that they want to look good on an international stage trade wars do not make China look good also things like the Hong Hong Kong protests or reports of you know weavers being forced into essentially concentration camps in western China. These are all things that China does not WanNa talk talk about does not want them on the front page of the paper and does not want international organizations reprimanding them for so they are motivated to reach a trade deal with the US US enlarge part because not just not just hurting their economy although it is hurting the US like we said but because it makes them look bad so back to what what this might mean for investors. We over the last couple of years as I mentioned and as you mentioned the stock market hitting new highs so investors seemed gotten pretty good at. Just shrugging off all this trade war news news and at the same time as you mentioned we know it has a real impact on consumers we certainly know it has an impact on businesses agriculture. Or if you have a business in your cost of doing business is going up and yet we seem to be able to reconcile or or kind of live in two different cities with the stock market. Going up and this ongoing impact of the trade war and so I guess my question is given that we've shrug it off. How much shrugging should we do with this news or is this truly something different? It does feel a little bit Lackluster for an eighty six page agreement. Not much has been accomplished here does not to say that future agreements future phases won't accomplish something I think. Hopefully they will but it is a long way to go investors. Yeah it's almost like we're accepting trade. The trade wars as the new normal. Because it's not just China right. We're also having trade disagreements with the entire European Union which has forced the price of of wine thus far but likely other other products such as cheese to go up as well and it's not being reflected in the markets right now for for good reason because like I said the stocks that are propping up the market have not really had exposure to these trade war issues. But I do think it's going to start impacting the consumer's pocket which could trickle down and as we wrap up this story. What are you watching going forward? I'M GONNA be watching to see when consumers start getting slightly more upset about the costs that are being pushed onto them. Like I said that three hundred seventy to about nine hundred seventy dollars dollars. It's not something that the average consumer is really aware that they're paying if trae does become the new normal if we're not able to fix these trade. Wars and consumers are paying more and more for products products that they've become accustomed to paying lower prices for. I think it'll be interesting to watch when the American consumer starts to have these issues and what they do and let's move onto investment banks and some big profits from Morgan Stanley. Emily shares up around seven percent of the time of our taping after Morgan Stanley reported better then expected earnings across the board. There are three main businesses investment management wealth management and trading all doing better than expected and that was a great quarter for Morgan Stanley. Their earnings per share was actually thirty percent higher than what was expected for the quarter and expectations for the quarter. Were already pretty high. They saw twenty seven seven percent increase in revenue but like you said all their divisions have been doing relatively well it really came from their investment management division and they associated associated with what they called a large IPO in Asia. They didn't provide much more than that. However if I had to guess I think that'd be Alibaba's secondary listing sting on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange for which Morgan Stanley was an underwriter for so they saw a near seven hundred million dollar pop as associated with this investment management? They did it on behalf of their client so a large earnings increase in part because of this one off event but Otherwise still a good quarter for Morgan. Stanley ah they continue to thrive. Despite the fact that it's a low interest rate environment we see lots of stuff moving the markets in the financial industry. which has been largely supportive of their business? But that's a pretty good payoff. Seven hundred million. I mean it's not quite what it used to be. I mean to me that feels like a lot of it is. It is definitely a lot of money but I will say other divisions in particular their wealth management division division despite still growing. They've been really squeezed because of the low fee environment that we're entering. I think people are becoming increasingly skeptical of paying somebody to manage their assets for them him and the landscape now so much more competitive for the price that you can charge to manage assets so internationally. It's fine but here in the US. We're seeing that kind of get squeezed and and before we get to our final story. I WANNA say thanks to link ten now. The New Year is about growth and change in fact my new year's resolution. Emily is to get in shape. Keep the little full fitness this morning. Feeling good and I'm going to get in shape.

Matthew Polly on 'Bruce Lee: A Life'

"Talk Bruce Lee with Matthew polly. The book is Bruce Lee. We live by Matthew polymath. UGALI joins US now. I love this book I knew I was GONNA love it. I love your story which I wanNA share with our listeners. At the end of this. Because you're about is unique it guys. It gets But Bruce was somebody is I've seen in in some of your lectures who became more famous. This guy's pursuit of fame and fortune. which was clearly a driving driving factor in his success unfortunately he died before he understood the iconic status that he would reach Although that was starting to happen certainly back home and then and carried over over here so just to set it up for the listeners. Bruce Lee born November twenty seventh nineteen forty in San Francisco which I know will surprise. People his father was a theater performer. A comedic actor with his own amazing story where he was singing outside of a restaurant and some travelling theatre groups saw him and then took him in and he traveled with them His background ground isn't the one hundred percent Chinese. As you mentioned you had a Dutch Jewish grandfather which chain who changed his name so that was kind of hard to figure out. I know for years. There's people thought he was a German descent as well. That was not the case. It's actually English in that led to a bunch of problems that he was not a hundred percent Chinese but he was a child star. Matthew and I think that's kind of the foundation of for those of us that didn't understand it. His father was a performer and Bruce's a performer. For a very long time at a very young age twenty films by the age eighteen eighteen. How much do you think that kind of set up his own aspirations for himself once he started travelling going back to the United States? I think that's the key I found in researching the book because the image of Bruce's this martial arts master who kind of accidentally gets into movies. It's almost as if he's the real person onscreen as opposed to an actor playing characters and when you realize that. His first appearance was when he was three months old and his career starts in earnest at six. And you see him play all sorts of roles that have nothing to do with Kung Fu movies. You realize that. He was an actor following in his father's footsteps and in many ways I think he was driven by that kind of Eto Eto conflict to outdo his father who was quite famous in Hong Kong when he was growing up it. was you know anyone that's trying to do this. This kind of stuff to become famous right. Hey I wanna be a big movie star. You have to be wired a certain way and him having that kind of success early on and he was actually like would incorrect me at any point throughout this offer anything but he was he was starting to have some major roles there where he was he was a star so I think he wants. He goes to the United States. We're going to into here. It's almost like look. I expect to have the same level of success as observed may have sounded at that time. That's right I think it gave him a real confidence confidence and some would say arrogance that he was somebody who was sort of fawned over from a very young age he was on said everyone. Buddy was cute. You know by the time. When he was ten he was he started in a very successful movie then? His career took a little bit of a dip but the last film Within the orphan was a huge huge hidden was the first film that ever played in an international film festival. So Bruce Lee thought of himself is an important person. He was a celebrity in Hong Hong Kong and so when he came to America he didn't feel like somebody. Just knock off. The boat was desperate to like just survive. He thought he should be a big deal here. Too Who and I think he needed that because the kind of racial barriers face were so high and it'd be hadn't had that kind of fundamental competence. He never would have achieved what he did so before he leaves for the State's he's in school. He's a terrible student. But and I cannot express this enough in you. Hammer it in the book and this is something that I kinda like. This was not some fake martial arts guy that maybe we grew up with in the eighties. Nineties that Bruce Lee was legitimate streetfighting. Getting bad ass. That would fight anybody. And he was training Would would not necessarily different styles. It was more traditional styles in it mon who was somebody who would become famous himself or was famous at the time. I people didn't want to train. When can you share with us? Just how real of a Guy Bruce was and that when he was much more concerned with fighting almost anyone who wanted to fight him even if he wasn't winning more than he was trying to be a student some pretty boy on on film. That's right. Hey what's interesting is from a very young age. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder and he was the kid who was always going around saying you you got you got trouble with me like he was starting fights he wasn't this wasn't self defense. This was self offense and the only reason he took up martial arts is because he got into so many street fights he finally found the guy who was better than on him and this guy studied under if mon the style of Wing Tongue and Bruce Lee only took it up because he wanted to be better than the guy who had beaten him and a fight because he couldn't couldn't stand the idea that he wasn't the Best Street fighter in the neighborhood and so- martial arts him with simply an extension of streetfighting. It wasn't the other way around. He wasn't bullied kid got picked on and started studying martial arts the kind of classic tale that we're all sympathetic to. He was a genuine sort of rough around the edges. Tough Guy who'd like to start things off and martial arts. was an extension of his sort of aggression And in fact he was so aggressive that the only reason he ended up going to the states wants because the police were going to arrest him. If his parents didn't do something about his constant streetfighting yet did he. Did you know that there's different pieces of great going through stuff and then reading the book and like man. Bali really cleans it up as much as you possibly could. But did he was he actually was was there a hit on him from the triads for beating up like the son of a gang member. That's yes I think that the story that One of his friends from a high school tells Unfortunately that friend tends to tell tall tales And he's the only one who says it so I think what happened was that he he beat up somebody who was important but not a try at number because in general tried members settle things themselves. They don't go to the police for so Basically a he beat up the kid of a well to do family who didn't have access to thugs to sell it themselves and so they went to the police. Did he pull a knife on teacher he did. He had a teacher the PE teacher used to when they were running around the track would take a along we'd essentially long switch grass and switch the kids on the back of the legs if they were going to slowly And it hurt. And and they didn't like it but Bruce Lee brought a switchblade in his pocket his shorts and one day when the teacher whipped him he turned around. Flip the blade open and charge the P.. Teacher who immediately ran away and Bruce Lee was chasing across the field the PE teacher with a knife in his hand so this isn't like like he was kind of a bad boy. This is the genuine article. Yeah absolutely so nineteen fifty-nine he goes to the states he graduates I believe a technical high school. He enrolls in Washington Drops out not immediately from from time. Line that I have. But but what was going on with him kind of his his moved to the United States his thoughts. I know he's working in a restaurant but now he's practicing martial arts arts and he's kind of entering that first whether or not people thought it was bullshit not because I think there's some real truth in the book where it's like. At times he could have been a little annoying with his philosophical Stuff but he's clearly figuring himself out to these transitional years before we get to kind of the Hollywood chapter and understanding how important he is a martial arts. Yes so what's fascinating about. His story is when he got to America he he he had that kind of instant. Almost instant immigrant turnaround story. Where he he decides? I want to be a success here. The way my life was going in Hong Kong was bad Leading towards the dark place. How can I change this so so? He didn't become a student but he came a much more dedicated student. He got into the University of Washington. He Fell in love with philosophy And took that up as one of his main interests But I think the more important thing was he because he came from Hong Kong. which at that time? It's not a major film industry with basically like the Nigerian film industry like it was popular in the region but no one else watched their films. He never thought thought it was possible to be an actor in the states and so he decided that the way he was gonna make a living in America wants to teach Kung Fu to everyone in opening sort of chain of Kung Fu Kinda CTO JOE's across the country to be the Ray Crock of Kung Fu and so it was at the University of Washington where he realized he could get Caucasian students interested in signing up for his classes and that made him sort of the first. I come through instructor to teach a kind of non Chinese audience. And that's what's interesting is that he mentally gave up the idea of being an actor for about four or five years but it ended up catching up with him anyway so for awhile. All he thought about was martial arts and martial arts instruction and man that led him to rejoin his acting career. There's some really revealing stuff about how ahead of his time. He was when you think about nutrition. The exercises working with weights. I mean this is somebody who was was as wiry sinewy as as you I can imagine is as far as his physique but it wasn't all genetics like he was eating these basically smoothies before they were called smoothies. Right like peanut butter bananas eggs even raw hamburger meat and he would just drink these things and he was doing all sorts of exercises working with dumbbells. Concentrate like at this point. It feels like this is when he's deciding that whatever I'm going to be. I'm going to be physically tuned as perfectly like he feels like the first of the closest thing we have to an actual superhero as he's learning his craft in obviously supplementing with everything that he can get his hands on that he thinks is healthy for him. which again felt like very? Maybe you could say it's the sixties a lot of people doing that kind of stuff but at least reading this stuff. I'm like I feel like I see these posts from girls doing dead lifts on Instagram all the time and he was doing and sixty. That's right well what what's interesting is. It was such a niche thing in America the sort of weightlifting craze and some of the magazines that were the equivalent of say muscle and fitness at that time. But Bruce who's instantly gravitated towards those and it would have been easy. You know took thirty or forty years before that overtook American culture in general But at that time time for such a small group of people who are into protein shakes vitamins but bruce immediately gravitated towards I think partly because he grew up. He almost died as a a a baby During the Japanese occupation of Hong Kong and so he grew up physically more frail than the other boys and this it's always bothered him and I think he saw this as a way to make for a childhood deficit but then clearly he realized something that no other martial arts at at the time realized. which is this kind of weightlifting? Regimen could really enhance your skill level. in the same way that athletes of that era didn't lift weights alert. Do any of the things that they do now and so he was really kind of on the cutting edge of the modern

"The streets. There are really two Internet's in Iran says mass. So Eddie Mair Donnie. A PhD candidate at Oxford University. One is national set up and operated by state the other is global alimony. Sunny says the Iranian government has been preparing for this moment for a long time the general trend over the past ten years since two thousand nine has been to really they tried to institutionally tried to restrict the Internet space and find ways to quickly and swiftly shut down without really shutting down the nation's infrastructure structure. That's why Iranians can't call their families on WHATSAPP right now but alimony says the you're able to do things like online banking on Iran's it's national Internet system out Tokar heads. A group called knits blocks. It's a civil society organization that tracks Global Internet outage in in real time here says it took the Iranian government twenty four hours to complete shutoff global Internet access. This is unprecedented in recent times. And it's Severi extreme measure and it's obviously also happened somewhat unexpectedly just judging by the response that it has taken some time to bring these networks down talker says the results for citizens in Iran is more than a simple inconvenience the government is silencing its people it's very serious human rights implications into security issues a safety issue Iran should look to bring back its Internet as soon as possible. The trump administration Asian has condemned Iran's response to the protests. Let them speak tweeted. The State Department spokeswoman over the weekend but researcher muscle alimony donate who hasn't been able to connect with her family and friends in Iran says US sanctions are also part of the problem will sanctions the US have placed on. Iran has has caused a lot of internet infrastructure from being blocked for Iranian so a huge portion of Google's infrastructure Amazon's infrastructure apples infrastructure. PROJECTOR have been blocked for Iranians and so the sense caused huge hurdles researcher. I mean Rashidi says the Iranian people are stuck between being the global superpower and their own government on one side we have to deal with sanctions and other side in Iran. We have the government and the authority that they are blocking the Internet and for now he says Iranians both inside and outside of the country have no other option but to keep refreshing those missing missing and social media APPS in the hope of getting back online for the world. I'm shooting Jafari for several days. The campus of Hong Hong Kong's prestigious Polytechnic University has been a field of battle students inside the campus versus the authorities. Trying to get them out. Police have pushed past barricades and fired. Tear gas rubber bullets and water cannons at students. Dozens of activists have been reported injured injured. The students have been fighting back with makeshift weapons joey. CEO is a spokesperson for a coalition of Student Unions in Hong Kong. I spoke with her earlier today today. What was it like for you less Joey? Were you able to keep in touch with the students barricaded inside the campus during the standoff. Era's a really disastrous Saturday night. At says we cannot get inflexible. Any any of them and the situation was very concerning because the police were actually equipped cain themselves with machine guns in life around and they're basically surrounding Ho University campus so essentially you were cut off from all of your fellow fellow protesters and student colleagues. who were inside? The campus emotionally was at hard not knowing what was going on inside. While you're barricaded outside it was it's really hard because the police are actually asking all the Jaguars inside campus to leave. And that makes us very hard to know what is happening inside aside from near exit from deface but lives and because the resources anxiety politics facilities are are getting used up and as many of the students defends out of battery and we can call them and day could only report to us every two hours that they're safe. We can unbuckle someday. Safety of until now so just to bring us up to speed Joey how many friends do you have barricaded inside the campus. And what do you think's GonNa Happen even to this whole drama. I have more than ten friends right now. It Still Trapped Polytechnic University and they have no way out from decamp right now and I. I know that the charge that they are phasing could lead to imprisonment for up to ten years. I'm very very I don't know how how does he could go there already. Firing live rounds. They're actually trying to kill the students inside so as protesters are more more and more willing to lay their life on the line. Police are also getting injured in the process. I mean they're bringing force but Students are throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails one policeman. Someone got shot with a bow and Arrow what happened to the non violent resistance of the demonstrators. We try to. Es peaceful as possible. But when I want to say a is that the level of force used on the two sides. NFL equal first of all like yesterday. The police had been gearing up with machine-guns gearing themselves the five rounds and they're even driving armored vehicles trying to crush over the students divorce that the police are using it's way too high then the force that we are using today's to defend ourselves and yet I said I think the will has to understand what is the actual actually situation in Hong Kong that we have no choice but to protect ourselves. Well the nightmare scenario for many protesters for many people watching this around the world is that that Beijing will bring the demonstrations too violent end and that in turn could prompt a much more draconian relationship between Hong Kong and the mainland. Do you feel the protests have been effective active in preventing the kind of future that Hongkongers really worry about because of the products we have successfully stopped to extradition bill from passing through the Legislative Council will actually trying very hard to present Hong Kong from falling into becoming another mainland city. Eighty people on actually know that the Chinese Communist Party's actually encroaching Hong Kong in all bets Sherri slowly and bit by bit so if we do not continue today I mean Hongkou essentially full so I cannot say whether it is effective but we have no choice. Okay we have to continue to fight Joe issue a spokesperson for the coalition of Student Unions in Hong Kong speaking with us from Hong Kong. Joey thank you very much. Thank you very much Charlotte. Bronte is best known for her classic novel Jane Eyre But the Nineteen th century. English writers started small like really small. An auction in Paris today sold off a miniature manuscript that Bronte road in eighteen thirty when she was fourteen years old as tiny tiny the size of the matchbox. But you know special. Things have come in small packages. That's kitty right. She heads up the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Yorkshire England. The book is one of five that still exists. They measure barely one inch by two inches of these books is packed with full thousand. Tiny tiny words in a really small the Bronte society. I bought the itty-bitty Manuscript for eight hundred sixty thousand dollars today to give to the museum's collection. The museum already has the four other tiny books. Charlotte Bronte Ronda Rudd. When she was a young team challenge made them as magazines for her toy soldiers so they are like miniature flexibly magazines have content pages have stories articles and even advertisements in the back to really through the early sign that she wanted to be a published writer? The manuscript will join the four others like it at the Bronte Bronte Parsonage Museum. The House that Brunton grew up in the house where she played with toy soldiers and wrote these stories so no wonder. The museum's director is ecstatic. That the final remaining book is coming Home Right. Says the writing was so small. No grownups could read it probably just as well because the contents might it deemed to be unsuitable for the daughter Vika to be writing age fourteen. One of the stories describes a murderer driven to madness after being haunted by his victims an immense hence fire burns in his head causing his bedroom curtains to catch fire to if that scene sounds familiar. You might remember something similar happening in Jane Eyre which Bronte would publish seventeen years later in a normal font size.

The environment women's empowerment human rights make a contribution today to support the global double journalism. You rely on visit the world dot org slash match to make a gift. I'm Marco Werman. This is the world how times change in the nineteen seventies. A recording device brought down a president. Today we're looking at the records of cell phone conversations stations in the impeachment inquiry last week. A potential bombshell was dropped in addition to the suspicious July twenty fifth phone call. Between President trump and Ukraine's president. There was another phone call between the President and Gordon Sunland his ambassador to the European Union who was on his cell phone in a restaurant in cave on a potentially unsecured unsecured phone. Line that new stunned some security experts including Larry Phifer. He served thirty two years in the intelligence community including a senior director of the White House Situation Room. I'm going to assume that the Russian intelligence service and perhaps other foreign intelligence services are targeting guys like ambassador Sunlen. If you're a high value target for Russia you just have to assume that they are monitoring you their surveillance and they're we're going to be trying to listen in on your calls and you know a country like Ukraine high threat environment from an intelligence perspective guys like San Land The members of the embassy staff. They they will have been briefed extensively on the threats that exist in this region. They will have gotten briefings on the outset of their of their hiring and then odds are they were even get a security briefing before they would go to the end of the country about the various threats that existed so either one of three things happened either one never got the briefing. That's bad too. He got the briefing and he forgot ought about it. That's bad or number three. He got the briefing understood. It but doesn't care and Really none of those answers are very positive. So there is clearly a security protocol for these kinds of communications today compared with other administrations US sane. Larry how does the trump administration comply generally with these security measures. Somebody anecdotes dictates. Were hearing like this one. You know suggests that there are players who don't take security as seriously as they should now in fairness to these individuals I I worked in the White House during the Obama Administration. And when you when you have an an administration you have a mix of people you've got people who spend decades in the business you come steeped in this kind of knowledge but you also have people who come from the corporate world you have people that come from academia people that come from politics from the campaign and they come in. And they're given jobs that given clearances they. They're given a access to sensitive information. They all get briefed on that. First Week they get flooded with all kinds of briefings about all the rules and regulations but at the same time they get those briefings. They're also starting to go one hundred and eighty miles an hour to accomplish the foreign policy objectives of the president. We had one individual lose lose. lose his blackberry in China and they called us. They're concerned wasn't that. They lost a blackberry. In China. They're concerned was my boss. Needs his blackberry. Akbari new blackberry. Can you get me one and my concern was oh my God. You've lost the blackberry in China and he called me back five minutes later. Say Oh don't worry. Hey everything's links fine. The Chinese founded and they just gave it back to us as I said they need to put it in a lead lined box and mail that sucker back to to Washington in to be examined forensically and Might Assumption again as if it if your device falls into the hands of a foreign government. You have to assume that it's been compromised. I how do you think this phone call. Plays into the Democrats larger case against trump. If it plays out as it's been characterized it suggests a a greater hand by the president on the Tiller of the scheme here and so that that begins to feed into somebody's impeachment charges. I think that was security. Analyst Larry Phifer who spent more than three decades working in US intelligence he now directs the Hayden Center for Intelligence Policy and International Security at George Mason University. It is a sad week in Washington Bay Bay the pander is leaving the National Zoo heading home to China for decades. Beijing has been dispatching dispatching. Its pandas like ambassadors on loan.

"Your online sportsbook experts so i want to shift gears to a super important topic that i've been keeping my eyes on and actually i was thinking of actually going personally and visiting this very crisis and i got some advice from somebody i really trust one of the top financiers and one of the biggest critics on china he said charlie. Have you ever been critical of china. Uh i said yeah i i've been pretty critical. Chinese said do not go to hong kong. I said why not. He said they might not win. They'll have their eyes on you. You will not be safe in hong kong so the protests that are happening in hong kong right now is one of the most important things happening geopolitically on earth and so many of you have probably heard about hong hong kong in general some. You've probably heard of what's going on. We're gonna give you the straight facts right now and i'm going to tell you something that the hong kong protesters wish they had that they're totally and completely missing so first of all just fast facts about hong kong current hong kong's population right now seven point eight million people seven point eight million people so to put that in perspective <hes> that's smaller than the population of illinois just give i mean that's just about the population of a mid mid size state so <hes> they're not not huge population there. I learned they became a colony of the british empire. At the end of the first opium war in eighteen forty two followed by co loon. I'm probably mispronouncing eighteen sixty after the second opium war and the modern territory was completed in eighteen ninety eight ninety nine year british lease over the new territories which comprise eighty nine percent of the hong kong island silence. I just have to laugh for a second you sign these ninety nine year leases mr producer and you think they're never going to mean anything and all of a sudden the least comes up and guess what in one thousand nine hundred seven the lease was up and so guess what sovereignty over the territory was restored to china in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine year lease was up it it actually functions as a special administrative region hong kong maintains their own governing and economic systems separate from those of mainland china <hes> it it it. It's people tend to identify moore's hongkongers than chinese hong kong as a special administrative region an essay of china with executive legislative and judicial powers that are devolved from the the national government so hong kong. There's really not an american equivalent of this <hes> but i'm trying to think of what the texans often refer to themselves first as texans and actually the founding of the country. A lot of americans used to call themselves a you know i. I'm a virginian. I'm then i'm an american and that has over the years become unless of obviously a thing we we ourselves to be americans. They're not in hong kong when you have these really powerful kind of semi galactic empire type countries countries like china that are created you kind of have these external countries that are always just kind of a stick in the side if you will right mr producer of the country so what was is it for the soviet union was east and west berlin that was kind of their store in in the side of their soviet empire that they were trying to create and hong kong. Is that for the chinese yes. They've never been able to totally control hong kong. It's always really bothered them. Same with taiwan taiwan is just an eternal problem for the chinese. They think that they govern taiwan. The taiwanese want their own government their own structure. They don't consider any sort of <hes> allegiance at all to china so here's a really important thing and this is from a history st textbook says quote although britain transferred sovereignty of hong kong hover hong kong nonetheless maintained some institutions that were separate from mainland china such as legislator independent judiciary <hes> this framework known as one country two systems has existed for twenty two years but protesters and hong kong are worried that the proposed changes for the extradition bill would give beijing greater influence over the region before going further just some top line facts about china really quick china right now is america's greatest enemy right now. There's millions of muslims and concentration camps simpson china china's trying to take over the world. Our trade policies have heavily benefited china china's g._d._p. Is growing rather slower today than it used to be but generally very very very quickly. <hes> china has total goals takeover most the sub saharan african ports of entry around the world and as well in south america china. It has no freedom of expression for its individuals. China is a very atheist secular country china has contempt for the west and the more that we've trade with china china's actually become more more authoritarian and more aggressive towards the west and so here's a little bit about the extradition agreement that was kind of struck in february two thousand nineteen hong kong security borough proposed changes to regional extradition laws that would allow people to be extradited from hong kong to mainland china reuters reported critics feared the bill would undermine the independence of hong gongs legal system and put hong kong citizens and foreign nationals at risk by allowing suspects to be sent to mainland china for trial and that's from reuters protesters believe that mainland china per play a role in drafting law and order to gain more control over hong kong citizens and they're right hong kong chief executive carry land denies this claim protesters demanding demanding her resignation due to what they perceived to be dishonesty to her citizens and loyalty to beijing so you kind of have hong kong that is having seventeen seventy six moment mr producer so this is their seventeen seventy six moment they are literally flying american flags in the streets and singing the national anthem and i'm telling you right now we should do even more to support the people of hong kong china is evil country. China is a evil country. I'm so sick and tired of this quote unquote alliance that we have china not saying we have to go to war with them not proposing being that i mean there's a lot of evil countries out there. I hope podcast about how evil iran was and how we should go to war with them. I mean i've spoken time and time again about countries that are evil and countries that are not our friend that we should stand up against north korea's evil but i think it's good that we're talking to them. I think that for example in other contra i've been very critical love and mr producer you know this saudi arabia funded nine eleven fifteen and nineteen. The hijackers were saudi arabian. I mean saudi. Arabia funds madris's all over the world. Saudi arabia's is behind a lot of the rise of islamic tears which would award them just because i think china's evil does not mean i think which want again there's a distinction between the government of china and the way that the one point arana's the same way a lot of the people in iran are credibly liberal progressive people purchased a great. There are persons are great. They live under a dictatorial oppressive regime and a lot of the chinese. Can you get them on the street. They talk. You know very sensibly. They want more openness. They want more freedoms and the same thing's happening in hong kong precisely and so and so the demands of the hong kong among people are this they want democracy that universal suffrage so hong kong residents have the right to elect their own leaders through general elections without the intervention of the chinese communist government mr producer producer. This sounds like seventy seventy six the sounds like a petition to king george they want an autonomous government duly elected by the people so they can achieve the rights and freedoms. We have in the united states including living free speech and the right to keep and bear arms. Can you believe it. They want the right to keep and bear arms this extradition bill which started the protest to be complete withdrawn now. I have to take a step back and your this. This is guess what mr producer for those you listen to the trolley kirk show. This is charlie kirk show exclusive commentary. I've not heard this anywhere. This is charlie kirk exclusive commentary number one. Let's go back to the brilliance of the founding fathers. The founding fathers studied human history. They started the greeks. They started the romans. They said the chinese that's right. They started the indus river valley. This out of the addition of mashed potatoes about below means the as the mines the incas and they found us that human beings are rather predictable creatures that we will act in certain ways and that we we will time and time again unfortunately embraced tyranny and one of the best ways to prevent against tyranny is to have some capacity that there can be equilibrium within the the people and the rulers and mr producer. What did they put in place to make sure of that. Will they put in place to make sure that citizens this could be armed. Could you imagine right now if every hong kong protester had an a._r. Fifteen sitting at home all this this wouldn't be your protest. This would be what mr producer. This'll be a negotiation and i we were talking about. This and show prep and i take is is is brilliant honestly. This is the best argument for the second amendment. You're ever going to funny. It's an in the contrast between the new york times trying to rewrite our history and these hong kong this is real in real time <unk> clinging to the true story of our founding freedom fighters of the spirit of seventeen seventy six is alive and well in hong kong meanwhile. It's dead and gone in the new york times editorial editorial. It's totally dead and so right now. Imagine if every honked is the best argument for the second amendment you're ever going to find because the second amendment is not the hunt deer and it's not for personal protection those things these are important but what is the second amendment really about to fight government tyranny and mr producer every single this this really upsets because every time i say this on a college campus people say oh. There's no more government tyranny. You're talking about something that's ever exist right now. In hong kong there's government tyranny and people are standing up against it. There's hundreds of thousands of young people well that want freedom they want freedom from tyrannical government and for the leftists out there that are totally silent shame on you for the liberals in the meteorite. They're they're not covering this appropriately. I condemn you completely and categorically. Here's what's happening. You have these people that want what they want. Democracy they want freedom expression but what have i always said mr producer. There is no first amendment without the second amendment and you're seeing that against the hong kong people unless the west comes to their aid unless america says definitively. We stand dan with the people of hong kong. They're going to lose this. What are the gun laws in hong kong right now. According to section thirteen of up to thirty eight the firearms and ammunition ordinance essentially no no person shall have in their possession any arms or ammunition unless he or she holds a special license for possession of such arms ammunition or dealers licenses such items james. Those in possession of illegal firearms can face up to fourteen years in prison. Smuggling of guns is punishable by death. You are recommended by your club to possess essentially have to be part of a gun club. There's no private ownership of guns. Why is this the chinese government knew that if one million people in hong kong had a._r. Fifteen for example the gun the left hates all of a sudden. They wait a second. We wouldn't have protests. We could have a civil warner has now. I don't want a civil war. I don't want armed. Conflict understand is the reagan doctrine of peace through strength in a micro lens. This is peace peace through strength when a million people all of a sudden have negotiation power. They have no leverage so if the chinese bringing their military right now you know what it is. It's a hostage hostage. Situation is not a negotiation but if the chinese military walks into hong kong with their tanks and you got a million people they are fifteen waiting for you all of a sudden. You're like wait a second hold on we we might lose our lives here. We know we're not really. We love this guy but i don't know about this right now. They know that they're gonna be unopposed. The chinese military can go door to door and kill whoever they wanna kill they can go down whatever apartment building they want to that anyone getting in their way however with an armed citizenry it changes the entire dynamic of the conversation and changes the entire hire dichotomy of how the entire process happens instead of protesters trying to create attention against the citizens. They're going to be treated as equals. They'll be treated a sovereign beings because there will be the imbalance that happens when there's no armament of the citizens is so remarkable and cannot be ignored. This is the argument for the second amendment and if hong kong embrace the second amendment for the last hundred years and older citizens were armed like the israeli citizens were armed and the swiss citizens were armed and the american citizens were armed my goodness they wouldn't have this china would say yet. You can have your own hong kong. You can do your own thing. You can have your own separatist government. We don't want a civil war. We don't want an uprising. We don't want carnage in the streets. We don't want we don't we don't want to lose one hundred thousand people because these hong kong people are ready to die the ready to but they don't have the ability to die. They're just going to die as smarter as victims but if you have the ability to shoot back and they're coming with tanks and they're coming with guns good luck trying to to to try to quell the kind of rebellion absolutely i think i think the on on the whole electoral argument for the second amendment point of having the guns is so you don't have to use them this ended of course that's what i'm saying and and look the chinese are kind of smirking because they're like well. If we bring in the military we will and if we have to shoot a couple of people we will but they're not gonna shoot back because they don't have guns they know they don't have guns because they put these ordinances in they know.

Is that right? Yes. So now again, this we wanna go around the world, we wanna change the h-have you're around the world. So you have to customize your campaign, Egypt. So we started off in New York City, because this is where United Nations. And we want to launch with the United Nations to partner with the you wear is important to launch appear. So once launched here, we're gonna jump to Los Angeles from Los Angeles jump to Hong Kong were oriented sessions, the team in Hong Hong Kong, or jumped Africa Africa, where you have a of hope again, when the leaves linzers. Advocate for them and then jump to our own projects. I in Wanda after that Africa were jump to Europe, after your goes, the America of Nerissa. And then we ended where we started in New York City. So we're to do a whole round the world three hundred. They can Thane genie again to focus on the human rights and not just in that region for your family. We're finding not only seven eight. You know, internationally or hours day. We want to reach beyond that, you know, there's an international happiness. There's a human rights day. There is a genus parent. We, there's an international sport and human development day. We want to target all these for gays and show, the world genes across the world that it's one can be. It's one woman race respect our differences and be of do not exclude being from so and really visited not in the losers. I remember years ago when I was talking about the city at Columbia University, and I always nature, you know, to remind our, our students that is it in the Luger, or is it real inclusion and that's important because many of the oh, yes, I, I very insensitive really. You gotta think about it because we do all we have blind spots. Right. We do. So. It's weeding for Russia. The okay. This is not as we need to be really inclusive and we need to think about it. We sometimes because we enter socio with their own crowd. Yeah. So we didn't therefore to dock with. Am I really being authentically inclusive of this is a huge ambitious project is going to take a lot of sort of power and energy as enthusiasm and I have to because of the reasons I wanna get people at your cell phone is because you've had extra relies? How'd you stay positive Stephan 'cause you kind of holding us together because his whole campaign is quite disparate ever was denying that time. And you kind of the glue that kept us all aligned and believing in vision, how do you keep yourself motivated, minced mild, positive? You'll be on. Living and working in these communities has has deafness firemen sewing, you know, when, when you have never forget again have these moments where, you know, family brings their child to a health injured child by armed with nothing. You can do and you still see how the community comes together to help each other to those moments. Fires. You. To wanna help them to get more. And, and you wherever you are. You have. Sometimes you have extremely dark walls of grueling doom. You I always look to the crafts happiness cracks. Right through all the dog the walls of women do. And you can really would you find that cracker happiness you just focus on that. And you just break it open and. Yeah, you need resilience and unique to shift at it. Sometimes you, you're not giving anything but a little tweezers, and you're, you're happy with the tweezers and made six years and years, but you're persistent, resilience and that keeps me going again and working with some really inspirational people. I mean today, you know, I'm speaking to you, but I do on the shoulders many many mobile here in Beijing. Many we're always inspired me to move on. Do to do more. How'd you oversee? Like you said, he's clinging onto that sliver of hope. But how do you how did you develop such resilience because I think because this is this is interesting because the mental side of things is usually important on. It's im-. It's crucial to be affected by what you're seeing because it allows you to really embrace it and experience, it will change you and it will determine and give you the fuel to, to make to pass on that impact and make a difference, but it can be exhausting and it can be damaging if you take too much of this. So how do you stay? How'd you do that resilience to keep? When you see around you, you know, things John positive always, how'd you develop your resilience? You know, I say never forget when I was wrong and thousand three inches for and where you had moments where. You just didn't know what was going to happen. And I remember being in a cage with meetings lines and, and so you in a cage. Yeah. When you build a concrete cage shelter for his for his lines. And I remember that hewing explosions outside a gun fire, and I- crazy. I am I started pushups. I started to do push ups and started to focus on my physical health something that I was enjoy the moment and try to block at everything around me and control. My heartbeat until my breathing. And even again, jumping to Cambodia or to Iki when I would meet field putting on my rhyming cheese and going for power Wachter or jogging it also has some, the SOGA guys were helping. They'll send me with sandbags around the yard. So I can go jogging and not gonna time or sniper moments. Love being was physical being always important. Okay. My life always. You know, on their forget my father going up when I was number studying McGill, University, Montreal, and examine being complete stress and my dad and I be at the kitchen table midnight and my dad wake up and he said, son, go for a run those exact words son, gopher run, and I was very fortunate in a very small community about a month ago, and I did, and I put on my wrench us and after midnight, this crazy guy university, students, jogging and gave me the time to reflect to control my reading control, my own stress. Physical fitness has always been part of me and has guided me to these very difficult times, including myself when I being injured or when comes in where you close the door of the health center, and we pushups or sit up. 'cause I was still sleeping able to do it, but I wouldn't you know, creating a safe space in your mind where you can't physically use your body. Creating these mental safe spaces in your mind that you fill it with one of imagery for me. It's always been nature. So thinking of, you know, thinking of harps and recreational spaces or water that has helped me a lot to go into that mental health. And you take those moments to block everything out all the distractions. I mean New York City where I mean where I'm seeing more concrete and more that urban jungle where important comed- to walk to the Hudson river and just see the river anxious drown myself trees and healthy, grease bases and there've been city where here where I see so much agreed. And so the science or honking, whether it's Guber lift what first responders ended in police angry people and I do create that mental space in my mind. And I'll go seek it. You know, and nature's always been part of you. And so that's this very, very strong. Mental game there. And you say size Kwan's, the mind and gives you for election. Absolutely. It at the reporting cities, designers, urban designers, meek, and make sure that we build more healthy grief faces in these communities, his people, the chance to unwind give the people the chance to this in that. From this modern world where in just round ourselves in nature, a notch wiping. You know, it's so important to work with designers and urban specialist to redesign these, we disconnected communities. Very, very important. I mean I feel I feel it here. I feel the stress in the city this aggressiveness, he was os, New York. It's a well actually that's not how the human development have this sort of aggressive. Well is New York. The various sure, actually, if I was to listen to honking horn ten hours a day or seeing this hunky jungle. This concrete ten hours a day. Yeah. I would also you know, be aggressive New York style. I don't believe this outfit. You know, I noticed like Hauch you need. Greenery is so important. I think that, that just break up and field. Remember, nature is really really, really good for the soul. And I think. So interesting to kind of talk about the virtues of, of exercise and helping you deal and being able to look away the negatives. And find that positive space from another point of, you know, the little of people in, in mock community. They, they sent me deal with a lack confidence. You know, things I can post syndrome and a no that how do you handle criticism? And, you know when when, when things are we prep, you lacking confidence. What can you do to, to offset the criticism of pep talk yourself into finding comfort because I know you've, you've seen tremendous adversity and you seen other people have come in these small things, but I wanted to get you on C. You could share those life lessons about how you deal with hardships, will, I want to be, how would you do in handling criticism? Well, you know, again you always, always if the person's not shouting near yelling at me. I'll sit and listen. And where they try to understand, you know, where they're coming from a, why are we criticizing me, and I really have that I'm taking the time to think what did I do? How did I do it? How did I ever message show, you need to take that moment because it depends if they are yelling and screaming, then I'll try again, to go right away into my safe space and to protect against like myself. I'm gonna defend myself because that isn't that isn't attach, you know? And I just I. Yeah. Says, gee, meditate and stuff dimension to control. Yeah. Again, medication. I mean when I run I put myself with onto runners zone where just focused and missing my reading my heartbeat things at that. But if I'm again, if I'm just someone just. Criticizing me.

"Now for a look at the markets gills. Debra not a great day for Asian investors. We are saying the Asia Pacific index down by about six tenths of one percent. So it's actually on track for its biggest daily loss this week. You can say China's markets coming off its recent highs, the CSI three hundred extending losses in the afternoon session, along with weakness. In Hong Kong. Of course, a lot of these hallway supplies and rivals ETA getting hit today. The Hong Hong Kong Hang Seng weaker by three quarters of one percent. The Nikkei being dragged down by that strength in the yen again, actually, holding a one wake high ahead of the news. And of course, the US jobs here poet, and then the AUSSIE dollar holding up pretty well as well seventy four five and use of JP Morgan pretty bullish on this currency. Even though we had yet another week raid on the economy today retail sales missing expectations with the rise of just point one of one percent month-on-month in January Yousef. Thank you very much for that. Juliet the OECD has cut forecasts for world economic growth this year, citing trade tensions and political uncertainty organization slash the outlook for most emerging markets as well know that a sharper slowdown in China would have huge consequences for global growth and trade. Joining us now is Mark Mobius. He's the co founder and partner at Moebius capital partners. Welcome back to the program. Go back early on in the year in January you're saying bike with these would have focused on India. Brazil and Turkey since then we've had this growth anxiety comes through the central banks are throwing a shift there. Tune as well, there's Mark Mobius start recalibrating as well. Well, if you look at the index the emerging markets index you'll see that the recovery has been terrific. I mean after a long period of decline, we've seen a very very nice pickup. And the index is moving up at a good pace. A lot of that. Of course is what's happening in Brazil and China China is coming back. And I believe that the opportunities are terrific now in a major markets whose Renou still at a down turn down the point compared to where we were many years ago, and the company is going to be very nice, I think, but the growth has moderated and you look at some of the statistics from the city economic surprise index, and we've taken some of the regional subsets of that, and you compare the data that we have today, whereas if the first week of March compared to a year ago and the economics surprises just dramatically dropped into the negative. So lot of negative economic surprises across emerging markets across China and senior. As well. But it's other concern for you know, because a lot of that is backward. Looking you know, they're looking at the data that we had last year and the beginning of this year looking I think it's gonna be a lot better. Now, the interesting aspect notice the latest trade figures for the US trade deficit is up. What does that mean? It means that China trade war has not really had that impact that they expected. In other words, a lot of the. Yes, it's true that perhaps exports from China. On the downturn. But allow that trade is moving to other parts of the world Bangladesh, Vietnam, Egypt Turkey, all these countries are gonna benefit from this. Because the the exports that China has been making is going to be shifted to these countries. So it's very very interesting phenomenon that we're seeing at this stage. The big news of the days that the US president is no even more keen to get a deal done to try and give the stock market in the US a little bit of a boost. Do you believe that he can pull through with something in the in the short term? I believe that quite possible because both sides China, of course, wants a deal, I would say China Polly wants to deal more than the US wants a deal, but you must remember look at the stock market in the US. It's had an incredible recovery has jumped up from the low point. So I think there's not that much pressure on Trump to do deal. But I think there's more pressure on the Chinese what about? In china? You said you need to do more in China. But at the same time, the valuations, especially on some of the main stock exchanges. They're getting quite quite frothy to say, the least I'm looking here at seventy percent of equities on the Shanghai in sheds benchmarks. They're trading above the level of seventy. That's just one indicator. We put together a chart as well for our clients to to get that extra perspective. But you're still seeing pockets of what we're seeing is not for the lodge cap stocks. We're going to low and middle cap stocks. So that's where the value is. I believe in China and in many other parts of the world, India's a very good example of that. So I mean with China, and this is again, the TV that I was referring to just moments ago, China, you're keen on I want to say to the region for a minute because in the past you've said that you're not keen on Saudi Arabia because of the anxiety around killing of dementia. Shook journalist even though it's additional play around the inclusion which is really tried to test method of make money in a very full amount of time. Exactly. Saudi Arabia getting back on your radar. Has a size and scale there might be too hard to ignore. That's reality of that's true going into the index having it the heavy awaiting is going to have an impact. There's no question about that. Because you know, at least half of the money is index oriented. But I think it's gonna take. A while you can take a few years before, you know, people really feel comfortable about what's happening in Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, there's no question money will be four in the index. Yeah. But you're not ready to today. Day. Saudi Arabia diversification. Play yet. Not yet. I prefer to go to Egypt. Okay. Egypt is your top plane reach definitely Egypt is the top player in the region. Why Egypt more attractive than the rest of the region? The reforms that are taking place. You seeing quite a lot of reforms stability in the government is pretty good at this stage of the game. And the great companies real great entrepreneurs. And we believe that many opportunities again, of course, what we define as a small and mid cap be large gap in Egypt in terms of market cap. But we're looking at temendous opportunities there. What's going to happen with with Europe and breaks if we're waiting for the to come out with their announcement later on day central banks in general have become a lot. Toughish is Europe at an inflection point to the downside here is that what we need to be. I believe that Europe is not going to be doing very much for a while eastern Europe is different. If you take a country, like Romania Poland interesting things happening in eastern Europe. But the rest of Europe is in really a slump simply because the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union is going to have a negative effect on not only the UK, but also Europe in general and the uncertainty. That's really the bottom line. There really is no leadership in the UK to say look with the direction we're going to be moving walkways touch space many times over the years. And I know you as a man who likes valuations to be low and for there to be a lot of return in a short amount of time. Brexit has arguably brought down by the way shins across asset classes in the UK. Is there a point where you would say, okay. This is getting interesting for me despite. The that's happening on the political side. There's no question we always looking forward. I mean, we don't look at. Of course, look at the rear view mirror to see what's happened. But we're looking forward to see where these companies are going to be moving into the future. But at this stage, the uncertainty just too great. Not worth it. And if you could choose one top trade in the world right now, which one would it be Vietnam. Vietnam. Vietnam, Vietnam, stocks were being them across the board of a Vietnam across the board. But particularly Vietnam socks. Okay. Thank you very much for that. Mark Mobius there.

It's gonna take a few years before, you know, people really feel comfortable about what's happening in Saudi Arabia. Nevertheless, there's no question money will be four in the index. Yeah.

Is there a point where you would say, okay. This is getting with the interesting for me despite the. That's happening on the political side. Oh, there's no question. We always looking forward. I mean, we're to look at we, of course, look at the rear view mirror to see what's happened. But we're looking forward to see where these companies are going to be moving into the future.
