The Money Illusion
Changing of the guard (about Chinese population decline. Scott Sumner ignores the reason for the one-child policy in the first place— limiting population to a number China could reasonably feed. It was hardly an arbitrary decision at the time, as many suppose it to have been. It was a response to what China considered to be a looming insurmountable handicap, if not existential threat in the event of famine. As Sumner notes, China recently relaxed the policy but not abandoned it. Achieving self-sufficiency is important to China and even though mechanized agriculture has changed the supply-demand equation by increasing supply, population growth still needs to be limited to achieve its social, political and economic objectives of first-world status. It is actually a highly rational policy and plan to support it. with China aiming at first-world status in the foreseeable future and not the distant future, or never. India is digging itself a hole on the other hand. But the entire world faces a culling as a result of climate change, so all this is up in the air anyway.)

We Shouldn’t Underestimate the Incredible Danger Posed by the Taiwan Crisis (important backgrounder by an insider. Interesting he would be talking candidly to a "leftist" publication. He is clearly concerned with the dirction this is heading—or lack of direction.)
