What does this former Communist Party member turned tycoon have to say about China's communist-capitalist paradox? In a world where these two political models were once polar opposites, Wang seems to have found a compromise. "I'm not sure if I'm a capitalist or a communist, I don't think people think much about 'ists' today.

  • Ming-era wine cup breaks auction record for Chinese porcelain

    HONG KONG: A rare Ming-era wine cup broke the world auction record for any Chinese porcelain on Tuesday, selling in Hong Kong for US$36.05 million to Shanghai tycoon Liu Yiqian, Sotheby's auction house said. The tiny white porcelain cup, decorated with a colour painting of a rooster and a hen tending to their chicks, was made during the reign of the Chenghua Emperor between 1465 and 1487. The price sets a new record for Chinese porcelain, according to Sotheby's, beating the previous record held by a gourd-shaped vase from the Qianlong period, which sold for HK$252.66 million (US$32.58 million) in 2010. The price far exceeded the previous world record for Ming Dynasty porcelain -- which was held by a blue and white vase that sold for HK$168.66 million in 2011. Nicolas Chow, deputy chairman ...

    Bhutan Won't Accept China's Offer To Ditch India In Exchange For A Border Fix. Bhutan is unlikely to enter into a compromise and accept China's offer to ditch India in exchange for settling the border problems. The reason goes beyond India-Bhutan relations. It involves Thimphu's fears that Chinese troops may proceed further to cut off the country's main thoroughfare connecting the capital. "Bhutan will never go behind India's back. It has as much at risk from the Chinese incursion in Doklam plateau as India," a Bhutanese analyst said while requesting anonymity. "If Chinese troops claim the disputed area, including Doklam, they will be in control of the high mountain ridges. This will put our Haa, Paro and Thimphu valleys within China's artillery range," he said. Forward movement of Chin...

Sanford I. "Sandy" Weill (/waɪl/; born March 16, 1933) is an American banker, financier and philanthropist. He is a former chief executive and chairman of Citigroup. He served in those positions from 1998 until October 1, 2003, and April 18, 2006, respectively. While working at Bear Stearns, Weill was a neighbor of Arthur L. Carter who was working at Lehman Brothers. Together with Roger Berlind and Peter Potoma they would form Carter, Berlind, Potoma & Weill in May 1960. In 1962 the firm became Carter, Berlind & Weill after the New York Stock Exchange brought disciplinary proceedings against Potoma. In 1968, with the departure of Arthur Carter, the firm was renamed Cogan, Berlind, Weill & Levitt (Marshall Cogan, Arthur Levitt), or CBWL jokingly referred to on Wall Street as "Corned Beef With Lettuce". Weill served as the firm's Chairman from 1965 to 1984, a period in which it completed over 15 acquisitions to become the country’s second largest securities brokerage firm. The company became CBWL-Hayden, Stone, Inc. in 1970; Hayden Stone, Inc. in 1972; Shearson Hayden Stone in 1974, when it merged with Shearson Hammill & Co.; and Shearson Loeb Rhoades in 1979, when it merged with Loeb, Rhoades, Hornblower & Co.[5] With capital totaling $250 million, Shearson Loeb Rhoades trailed only Merrill Lynch as the securities brokerage industry's largest firm. In 1981, Weill sold Shearson Loeb Rhoades to American Express for about $930 million in stock. (Sources differ on the precise figure.) In 1982, he founded the National Academy Foundation with the Academy of Finance to educate students that would graduate from High School. Weill began serving as president of American Express Co. in 1983 and as chairman and CEO of American Express's insurance subsidiary, Fireman's Fund Insurance Company, in 1984. Weill was succeeded by his protégé, Peter A. Cohen, who became the youngest head of a Wall Street firm.[6] While at American Express, Weill began grooming his newest protégé, Jamie Dimon, the future CEO of JPMorgan Chase. In April 1998, Travelers Group announced an agreement to undertake the $76 billion merger between Travelers and Citicorp, and the merger was completed on October 8, 1998. The possibility remained that the merger would run into problems connected with federal law. Ever since the Glass–Steagall Act, banking and insurance businesses had been kept separate. Weill and John S. Reed bet that Congress would soon pass legislation overturning those regulations, which Weill, Reed and a number of businesspeople considered not in their interest. To speed up the process, they recruited ex-President Gerald Ford (Republican) to the Board of Directors and Robert Rubin (Secretary of Treasury during Democratic Clinton Administration) whom Weill was close to. With both Democrats and Republican on their side, the law was taken down in less than 2 years. Many European countries, for instance, had already torn down the firewall between banking and insurance.[5] During a two-to-five-year grace period allowed by law, Citigroup could conduct business in its merged form; should that period have elapsed without a change in the law, Citigroup would have had to spin off its insurance businesses. Weill's office holds a wood etching of him engraved with the words "The Shatterer of Glass–Steagall". Weill denies that the repeal of Glass–Steagall played a role in the recent financial crisis.[7] In 1998, Weill was the recipient of FinancialWorld Magazine’s CEO of the Year Award and received the same honor from ChiefExecutive Magazine in 2002. In 2001, Weill became a Class A director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Class A directors are those elected by Federal Reserve member banks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanford_I._Weill

This new international financial institution forces Europe to take a side. The UK decided, against the urgent advice from the United States, to become a member, and also the Netherlands has joined the Chinese initiative. According to China watcher Martin Jacques, this is the beginning of a new Chinese world order. Original Title: Chinese Wereldorde While Europe is being tested by a tragic economic crisis, terrorist attacks and refugees at the gates, the founding meeting of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the New Development Bank has been quite unnoticed. These are two new multilateral financial institutions that challenge the current order of the World Bank and the IMF. Both are led by China and are set up to bring the world-dominated World Bank and IMF to the crown. After the British became members of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank, due to economic opportunities, the Netherlands, France and Germany also followed. The importance of this, initially, British shift of foreign policy is difficult to underestimate. The United States feels this is a direct threat to their sphere of influence. "The biggest diplomatic battle since the Second World War between the US and its main ally," said journalist and China expert Martin Jacques about the surprising British step. And symptomatic of a new world order. But how does the Chinese influence differ from the American influence? Will Europe become a pawn in the battle between the two influence spheres?

Rovira, who was speaking at the release of a new study called "Latin American Economic Outlook 2016: Towards a new Partnership with China", stated that both sides had increased their bilateral trade by 22 times since 2000, but added that "Latin America has much more to offer and can develop new capacities requested by the Chinese market." He added that the Asian giant will continue to be one of the most attractive markets for the region but that Latin America needs greater diversification and new development policies to take full advantage of what China offers. (SOUNDBITE, Spanish) Sebastián Nieto, OECD representative "There is a second political challenge, in which Latin America needs to build better institution in key sectors, such as education and transport. This will allow the region to get the most out of its ties with China, especially a new China which is requesting completely different services and completely different goods than before."

HONG KONG: A rare Ming-era wine cup broke the world auction record for any Chinese porcelain on Tuesday, selling in Hong Kong for US$36.05 million to Shanghai tycoon Liu Yiqian, Sotheby's auction house said. The tiny white porcelain cup, decorated with a colour painting of a rooster and a hen tending to their chicks, was made during the reign of the Chenghua Emperor between 1465 and 1487. The price sets a new record for Chinese porcelain, according to Sotheby's, beating the previous record held by a gourd-shaped vase from the Qianlong period, which sold for HK$252.66 million (US$32.58 million) in 2010. The price far exceeded the previous world record for Ming Dynasty porcelain -- which was held by a blue and white vase that sold for HK$168.66 million in 2011. Nicolas Chow, deputy chairman of Sotheby's Asia, described the cup as the "holy grail" of Chinese art. "There is no more legendary object in the history of Chinese porcelain. This is an object bathed in mythology," he told reporters after the sale. "It has gone to an extraordinarily good home in Shanghai in the collection of Liu Yiqian." Bidding started at HK$160 million, with Liu putting up the winning bid over the telephone after a lengthy battle among hopeful buyers. A taxi-driver turned financier, 50-year-old Liu is one of China's wealthiest people and among a new class of Chinese super-rich scouring the globe for artwork. Worth an estimated US$1.6 billion and with two museums to his name, Liu made headlines in the art world when he bought a Song-era scroll for US$8.2 million at a Sotheby's auction in New York in September -- only to have it dismissed as a fake by a trio of renowned experts. He stands by the scroll's authenticity. The chicken cup represents the pinnacle of Ming-era porcelain production, according to Sotheby's. "That period in terms of porcelain production was really the peak of material refinement," Chow told AFP, adding that emperors of later Chinese dynasties were so enamoured by the design that the chicken cup was copied extensively. "When you buy a chicken cup... you don't just buy the object, you're buying centuries of imperial admiration for these objects," he said, adding that it could be the most forged piece of Chinese porcelain. Less than 20 such cups are known to exist, with just four in private collections, Chow said, adding that this will become the only genuine chicken cup in China upon its return. Hong Kong has emerged as one of the biggest auction hubs alongside New York and London, fuelled by China's economic boom and demand from Asian collectors, especially wealthy Chinese buyers. - AFP/de A rare Ming-era wine cup broke the world auction record for any Chinese porcelain on Tuesday, selling in Hong Kong for US$36.05 million to Shanghai tycoon Liu Yiqian, Sotheby's auction house said.

Bhutan Won't Accept China's Offer To Ditch India In Exchange For A Border Fix. Bhutan is unlikely to enter into a compromise and accept China's offer to ditch India in exchange for settling the border problems. The reason goes beyond India-Bhutan relations. It involves Thimphu's fears that Chinese troops may proceed further to cut off the country's main thoroughfare connecting the capital. "Bhutan will never go behind India's back. It has as much at risk from the Chinese incursion in Doklam plateau as India," a Bhutanese analyst said while requesting anonymity. "If Chinese troops claim the disputed area, including Doklam, they will be in control of the high mountain ridges. This will put our Haa, Paro and Thimphu valleys within China's artillery range," he said. Forward movement of Chinese troops will make them capable of cutting off the 165 km road from Thimphu, the capital, to Phuentsholing, the city which is the gateway for import of food and other materials from India, he said. China is claiming 495 square kilometers in eastern Bhutan and 286 sq km in the western sector, which includes the Doklam Plateau. At one stage, China offered to give up its claims in eastern Bhutan if Thimphu handed over the Doklam plateau, which will give Chinese troops a commanding position over India. Bhutan did not agree and is unlikely to accept the offer because giving up Doklam will give access to Chinese troops into other parts of the country, and put even the capital, Thimphu, at risk. "The attempt by the Chinese is to take as much roads as it can from there to the Indian and Bhutanese borders in the vicinity," Thimphu-based weekly, The Bhutanese, wrote in a commentary. "For Bhutan, loss of any territory or incursions into its areas is not welcome as discussed in several past National Assembly sessions, with both pre-democracy Chimis (people's representatives) and the post-democracy MPs from the area bringing up the issue of encroachments from the Chinese side," it said. China is trying to make a big push into the Himalayan kingdom because it is undergoing major changes both at the economic and socio-political levels. India is financing four major hydroelectricity projects, which is expected to bring considerable wealth to the country. India is both the financier and sole buyer of the electricity that will be generated. american aircraft carriers, china aircraft carrier, china carrier, china navy, china new aircraft carrier, china submarine, china vs us military, china vs usa military, chinese aircraft carrier, chinese navy, chinese navy news, chinese navy ships, chinese navy vs us navy, chinese submarines, indian navy vs chinese navy, new aircraft carrier, pla navy, us navy china, us vs china military, usa vs china military ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.
