  • 一直是投資中國,像Steven Roach般,自認是廿五年來打死不退死多頭的新加坡政府控股百分之百的淡馬錫投資機構,最近宣布暫停投資中國科技公司,而受到外界關注。
  • 淡馬錫最近出清百度,好未來,新東方及招聘的網路平台BZ,也減碼阿里巴巴191.88萬股,占投資比重16%,也減持滴滴357.15萬股,占比重10%,還減持快手,騰訊,這些公司都是今年第三季股價跌最慘的標的,尤其是補教行業,新加坡另一家政府投資公司GIC是新東方最大股東之一,持股逾5%,這回新東方從199.97殺到1.68美元,GIC看起來損失逾百億美元。
  • 淡馬錫去年底結算,資產浄值從3130億美元降至3060億美元,今年手上標的中國科技股一度占29%,比淡馬錫在新加坡的資產比重更高,而且,投資的標的都跟著孫正義的阿里巴巴延伸出來企業走,這回傷最重。
  • 淡馬錫及GIC這兩年大力投資中國的補教行業,除了新東方,好未來,高途,有道等都大力加碼,正好遇到中央強力監管,這回淡馬錫及GIC傷最重,這回宣布不再投資中國科技股,看起來有苦衷。
  • 去年新加坡經濟成長率衰退5.6%,今年首季年增1.3%,第二季因去年衰退13.3%,出現14.7%的成長,今年目標在6到7%,可能與台灣在伯仲之間。不過,李顯龍夫婦孤注一擲押寶中國,也讓新加坡未來增添更多變數!

China has the most democratic government in the world

By Tan Kin Lian
December 7th, 2021

I consider the People’s Republic of China to be the most democratic government in the world.

First, we have to understand what is a democratic government. It is a government “by the people, for the people”.

The government must be freely elected by the people and must work for the well being of the people. I consider this to be the true test of democracy.

Most western countries did not produce this outcome. Their system benefits the wealthy elite, and the ordinary people suffer a drop in their living standards. This has happened in recent decades.

These countries allows the people to change the government more regularly, but the frequent changes do not produce the structural changes that improves the lives of the people.

In contrast, the PRC government was able to bring over 400 million people out of poverty and improve the living standards for the people at large.

Let me elaborate on the following important features of the PRC system of government.

1. The people vote freely and democratically to elect their deputy in the local people’s congress. The elected deputies vote for their leaders at the higher levels, i.e. the provincial and the national government. China adopts this multi tier system because it has a large population.

2. Their national policies goes through consultations at various stages. They get the experts and academics to study the issue and present their recommendations. These are evaluated by their policy making committee and a draft law is presented. Feedback is obtained on these laws from the relevant people and are further discussed. The final draft law is presented to the National People’s Congress for adoption. When it reached this level, the draft had already been actively discussed and agreed at the lower levels.

3. Any citizens that is unjustly affected by the actions of the authority can submit their grievance to a proper channel. The grievance will be addressed at the local level. If it cannot be resolved, and the issue affects many people, it will be taken up at the higher level. This system worked quite well and produced a satisfactory outcome.

In international surveys of trust in government, the PRC government obtained the approval of over 90% of the people. This is the highest approval rating of any government in the world.

I consider the PRC government to be the most democratic in the world as it is freely elected by the people and receives the highest approval rating of the people.

What is mass formation psychosis? Robert Malone makes Covid-19 vaccine claims on Joe Rogan Show (podcast) ~ 2 Jan 2022
https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucelee/2022/01/02/what-is-mass-formation-psychosis-robert-malone-makes-covid-19-vaccine-claims-on-joe-rogan-show/
  • A massive rock formation? A Massachusetts psychosis? No, a “mass formation psychosis” is the term that Robert Malone, MD, used on The Joe Rogan Experience to describe what’s been happening in the U.S. in recent years. So was this a reasonable “mass” assertion? In a way, perhaps. But maybe not in the way that Malone had intended.
  • Malone, who has listed himself as the “Inventor of mRNA vaccines and DNA vaccines” on his LinkedIn account, appeared on Joe Rogan’s Spotify podcast shortly after being permanently booted from Twitter last week. On the podcast, Malone began talking about his background and then Covid-19 vaccines before segueing to Nazi Germany. Because who doesn’t talk about Nazi Germany when talking about Covid-19 these days, right? Malone began this part of the conversation by asking Rogan, “What the heck happened to Germany in the 20s and 30s? Very intelligent, highly educated population, and they went barking mad. And how did that happen?”
  • Since this wasn’t an episode of the TV show Jeopardy, Malone quickly answered his own question with, “The answer is mass formation psychosis.”

Indiana life insurance CEO says deaths are up 40% among people ages 18-64 ~ 1 Jan 2022

  • Davison said the increase in deaths represents “huge, huge numbers,” and that’s it’s not elderly people who are dying, but “primarily working-age people 18 to 64” who are the employees of companies that have group life insurance plans through OneAmerica.
  • Davison said death rates among working age people – those 18 to 64-years-old – are up 40% in the third and fourth quarter of 2021 over pre-pandemic levels.
  • “Just to give you an idea of how bad that is, a three sigma or 200-year catastrophe would be a 10% increase over pre-pandemic levels,” Davison said. “So, 40% is just unheard of.”

疫情首先是从武汉开始并扩散到全世界的;中国没有从源头控制好武汉病毒是「罪魁祸首」。

纽约时报:改變世界的25天:新冠疫情是如何在中國失控的? ~ 30 Dec 2020
https://cn.nytimes.com/china/20201230/china-coronavirus/zh-hant/

中國最著名的醫生正在執行一項緊急任務。

現年84歲的鐘南山博士接到命令趕往中部城市武漢,研究一種異常的新型冠狀病毒。鍾南山在17年前因幫助發現SARS流行病而被譽為英雄。他的助手拍了一張夜行列車上鍾南山閉目思考的照片,這張照片後來在中國迅速傳播,打造了鍾南山作為奔赴疫區救援的中國醫生的聲譽。

現在,中國官方歷史將鍾南山之行描述為最終取得勝利的抗疫戰爭的電影般的轉折點,當時他發現病毒正在危險地傳播,並迅速前往北京拉響警報。四天後的1月23日,中國國家領導人習近平封鎖了武漢。

這次封鎖是拯救中國的決定性第一步。但是自那以後,大流行造成了超過170萬人死亡,這一步對於阻止該病毒傳播到世界其他地區為時已晚。

第一次警報實際上是在25天前拉響的,也就是去年12月30日,距今整整一年。甚至在那之前,中國的醫生和科學家就已經在努力尋找答案,然而武漢和北京的官員卻隱瞞了感染的程度,或拒絕就警告採取行動。

政治阻礙了科學,這種緊張關係描繪出大流行的輪廓。中國遲來的早期回應導致病毒被釋放到全世界,並預示著世界各地的科學家與政治領導人在透明性、公共衛生和經濟方面將展開的鬥爭。

本文調查了中國那改變了世界的25天,以中國政府文件、內部資料、訪談、研究論文和書籍為依據,其中包括遭到忽視或審查、並有助於人們理解官方決定的公開記載。

在北京承認問題嚴重性的前幾週,中國科學家和私人實驗室識別了新冠病毒並繪製了其基因圖譜。科學家們還與他們的同僚交談,試圖發出警報——在某些情況下,他們發出了,但也付出了一定的代價。

上海知名病毒學家張永振教授說:「我們也說的真話。」在與澳洲的一位同事合作公開發布該病毒的基因序列後,他面臨著受到譴責的風險。「但是沒人聽我們的,這是非常可悲的。」

雖然中美之間爆發政治敵對,雙方科學家仍然依靠數十年來建立的全球網路來共享信息——而頂級科學家在早期就意識到這種病毒可能在人類中傳染。

據兩位知情人士透露,1月8日,中國疾病預防控制中心主任高福在與美國同行羅伯特·R·雷德菲爾德(Robert R. Redfield)博士通話時確認這種危險後,情緒激動。

然而,雷德菲爾德和高福——各自受到政治束縛——都沒有發出公眾警報。在北京,高級衛生官員收到了武漢醫生的不祥報告,並派出了兩個專家小組進行調查。然而,他們缺乏挑戰武漢官員的政治影響力,在公眾面前緘口不言。

在某種程度上,鍾南山武漢之行的政治意味大於醫學方面。他當時已經知道病毒可以人傳人;他的真正目的是打破中國不透明的政治體系造成的阻滯。

根據鍾南山與他人合作的新書,他在火車到達武漢前起草的一份報告中寫道:「新冠肺炎肯定人傳人。」「提醒公眾沒有特殊情況不要去武漢,減少出門,避免聚集。」

中國最終不但控制了病毒,還控制了關於病毒的敘事。今天,中國經濟高速運轉,一些專家提出大流行是否已經撥動全球力量平衡向北京傾斜偏向北京。

中國的復甦激怒了川普總統,他花了數月時間就他所謂的「中國病毒」指責北京。美國仍然沒有控制住病毒,並正在為死亡和經濟影響付出沉重代價,而中國的生活卻相對正常。

不久前,中美曾合作成功追蹤並遏制過病毒在中國的暴發。但川普政府在此次疫情暴發前幾個月就從北京撤出了約十位公共衛生專家,這實際上使美國政府對來自中國的疾病威脅視而不見。

中國外交官辯稱,該國在武漢封鎖後感染得到遏制的記錄證實了習近平強硬政治的正確——儘管政府對早期的幾週進行了美化,當時果斷的行動可能會遏制病毒在中國境內暴發。一項早期研究預測,如果官員提早一週採取行動,中國本可以將病例總數減少66%。提前三週的話可以減少95%。

中國對最初的那幾週不願保持透明,也在世界對新冠病毒的認知上留下了巨大的空白。科學家們對該病毒在何處以及如何出現的了解很少,這部分是由於北京推遲了對該疫情的動物起源的獨立調查。

「他們錯過了一次學到教訓的好機會。」研究中國衛生政策的外交關係委員會高級研究員黃嚴忠說。「對於真正出了什麼問題,沒有認真的討論。」

「大家都是在網上看到的」

12月30日,武漢的醫生遇到患上神秘而難以治癒的肺炎患者後,市政府下令醫院報告類似病例。根據政策,醫院應該也將這些病例報告給北京的國家疾病預防控制中心。

他們沒有這樣做。

然而,內部通知發布後不到12分鐘就流傳到了微信上,這是中國幾乎無處不在的社群媒體服務平台,隨後第二個關於患者護理的內部通知也迅速在網上傳播,直到負責中國疾病防控中心的、擁有牛津受訓背景的病毒學家高福聽說了關於一種神秘肺炎暴發的討論。

「那不是網上都登了嗎?」高福在被問及如何知曉武漢病例的簡短採訪中說。「大家都是在網上看到的。」

當晚深夜,中國國家衛健委命令醫學專家早上趕赴武漢。

數小時後,醫學新聞服務機構ProMED向包括世界衛生組織在內的全球衛生專業人員發布了公告。這讓一些科學家立即想起了2002–03年的SARS流行病,該病是由中國的一次冠狀病毒暴發引起的,在全球造成近800人死亡。

「我的第一反應是:『天吶,SARS又來了,』」ProMED紐約副編輯瑪喬麗·P·波拉克(Marjorie P. Pollack)博士說。她發布了12月30日的公告,還幫助發布了有關SARS的早期警報。

在武漢,疫情似乎集中在華南海鮮批發市場。一週前,當地醫生將一名患病的65歲市場工人的肺泡灌洗液送到了華南地區的一家基因技術公司微遠基因。該實驗室發現了一種與SARS大致相似的冠狀病毒。另外兩個商業實驗室也很快得出了相同的結論。

沒有人敢公開結果。

在動物和人類中可以找到許多冠狀病毒,極少會對健康產生致命威脅。但是有兩個——SARS和MERS——近年來已經從動物身上脫離,在人與人之間傳播,造成了嚴重甚至有時致命的疾病。

微遠基因將其數據發送給了北京的中國醫學科學院,並派出了一名高管向武漢市衛健委發出警報。

在2019年的最後一天抵達武漢的北京團隊被迅速告知實驗室結果。專家之一曹斌告訴一家中文報紙。

當時,武漢政府已公開證實,該市的醫院正在處理一種不尋常的肺炎,但否認它具有潛在的傳染性。

與此同時,國家衛健委要求商業性實驗室銷毀或上交這種病毒的樣本。此外,該機構還要求,研究結果只能在官員批准後發表。在北京的命令之下,廣東省衛健委主任曾帶隊前往微遠醫學檢驗實驗室獲取他們的樣本。

儘管存在種種限制,科學家們仍在跨國界交流。1月4日,斯坦利·帕爾曼(Stanley Perlman)教授給一位中國同事發短訊,提到有關一種新型冠狀病毒的傳言。他很快被告知,應把討論轉移到一個加密的手機應用程序上。

「他說,『是的,這是一種冠狀病毒,它還沒有得到應有的公開,』」在愛荷華大學(University of Iowa)任教的帕爾曼教授說,他還說,他的朋友指出,已經有四家實驗室對這種病毒進行了測序。「所以這裡有一些講不清楚的東西。」

來自北京的小組匆忙整理了醫治病人的指南,並迫使當地官員關閉了市場。但其中一名調查人員並不擔心春節期間的客流激增,1月晚些時候正是中國的農曆新年假期。

「中國的傳染病控制有多年的積累,」徐建國博士對一家香港報紙說。「絕不會出現因為春運發生大擴散的可能性。」

「可能會有後果」

在800多公里外的東部,上海公共衛生臨床中心的知名病毒學家張永振感到非常擔憂。

像其他幾個中國實驗室一樣,張教授和他的團隊破解了這種病毒的基因序列,並得出結論,認為它可能具有傳染性。和其他實驗室不一樣,他覺得自己自己有責任公布這一消息,以幫助研究人員開始檢測、治療和疫苗的工作。

「那不知道,」在一次漫長的採訪中,當被問及為什麼其他人沒有選擇公開時,張教授如是說。「因為在中國,好多(人)順著官員說是比較容易的。」

在張教授的團隊於1月5日完成了對這種病毒的測序後,他的中心通過內部管道警告了上海的領導人和北京的衛生官員,建議在公共場所採取預防措施。

他還準備公開這些數據,在於1月9日訪問武漢並在一所大學發表講話後,他認為採取這一行動已經勢在必行。就在同一天,當局證實這種新疾病是一種冠狀病毒,但官員繼續淡化了潛在的危險。

晚餐時,一群武漢醫生告訴他,疫情形勢比官員們承認的要更糟。

「他們臨床一線的大夫一定是這個感受是最準的。」他說,「我就知道這個病的話一定是比較厲害的。」

1月11日,張永振準備登機前往北京時,接到了長期研究夥伴、雪梨大學病毒學家愛德華·霍姆斯(Edward Holmes)的電話。

到這時,中國已經公布了首批染病死亡人數,以及香港的疑似病例數。張教授向一個龐大的在線基因數據庫Genbank提交了他的序列結果,但審核仍需時間。

霍姆斯教授敦促他的朋友。看看武漢不斷上升的病例數,他說。看看在香港出現的病例。

這是一個只有張教授才能做出的決定,霍姆斯告訴他。公開這一數據要冒著激怒衛生官員的風險,他們試圖控制信息,並希望借病毒測序邀功。在他的飛機滑行準備升空時,張教授說,他需要一點時間來思考。

「我可能沒用一分鐘的時間,我就告訴他,」張教授說,「我馬上打電話給他,我說釋放這個序列。」

很快數據就被上傳到了一個病毒學網站。

大約兩個半小時後,張教授在北京落地。當他打開手機,消息一涌而入。

「快點讓它出來是當時唯一的目的,」霍姆斯教授說。「我們知道可能會有後果。」

破裂的合作關係

美國疾病控制與預防中心主任雷德菲爾德博士是其中國同行高福的老朋友了,兩人從事的是同一領域的研究:病毒學。

在ProMED發出警報後,兩人進行過通話,但高福堅稱病毒只在市場裡的動物之間傳播,沒有出現人傳人。

然而,據兩名熟悉雷德菲爾德博士對這通電話描述的人士所說,到了1月8日的時候,高福變得焦躁起來。高福說,病毒已經感染了醫護人員,開始出現人傳人,儘管當地官員予以否認。

從政治角度來說,這對兩人來說都是個危險境地。

隨著與中國的貿易戰升級,川普政府幾乎全部終止了與北京始於SARS疫情、旨在幫助防止潛在大流行發生的公共衛生合作夥伴關係。現任及前任疾控中心官員表示,通過撤出這一合作,華盛頓將自己隔絕在了關於該病毒的潛在情報之外,並且失去了一個與中國合作對抗病毒的機會。

在這種合作夥伴關係下,一組組美國醫生被派駐中國,久而久之,還幫助培訓了超過2500名中國公共衛生工作人員。超過15人曾前往美國接受培訓。

「我們的受訓人員,」美國人這麼稱呼他們。

一名為該項目提供建議的美國醫生被派駐在中國疾控中心,與即將在全中國各地任職的受訓人員建立起了關係,並且與中國醫生有社交往來。

「你在一個要獲取非常重要信息的位置上,」疾控中心前主任、曾幫助建立起這一合作的傑弗里·科普蘭(Jeffrey Koplan)說,「尤其是關於具有威脅的新型疾病的信息。」

在一項對合作10年的評估中,雙方的醫生均認為它對預防潛在大流行有幫助。例如最開始出現在中國南方省份廣東的禽流感。中國讓美國流行病學專家加入到應對行動中,並且將科學家送到美國接受培訓。這一合作關係一直持續到了2017年,當時一個新毒株傳播到了其他國家,導致超過600人死亡。

「我們與中國疾控中心並肩作戰,」貝拉克·歐巴馬(Barack Obama)擔任總統時期的美國疾控中心負責人湯姆·弗裡登(Tom Frieden)博士回憶道。隨著進一步地傳播和錯誤的變異,弗裡登博士補充道,「那有可能成為一場大流行。」

另一個名為「Predict」的美國項目設法在動物身上的病原體(特別是冠狀病毒)傳播給人類之前找出它們。該項目合作的實驗室之一便在武漢。

但在2019年7月,在沒有給出公開解釋的情況下,美國將派駐在中國疾控中心最後剩下的美國醫生撤回。幾個月後,美國疾控中心另外一個北京辦事處也遭到關閉。那裡曾經有十幾名美國專家和40名中國公共衛生工作人員。到了12月,只剩下兩名流行病學家、一位信息技術專業人員,以及主要從事季節性流感工作的少數當地員工。Predict項目也被暫時叫停。

一位匿名接受採訪的高級政府官員說,疾控中心認為中國可以在協助減少的情況下將培訓項目繼續下去。儘管在2017年雙方仍有合作,但一名白宮發言人否認美國如果有更多存在的話會帶來改變。

「鑒於共產黨決心要對我們的人隱瞞信息,就算我們在中國有100人,也不會有任何改變,」國家安全委員會(National Security Council)發言人約翰·尤利奧特(John Ullyot)說。

就像其前任在禽流感方面所做的一樣,在抗擊武漢疫情暴發方面,雷德菲爾德博士迅速提供了美國的幫助,告訴高福他可以在48小時內派20名流行病學家過去。

這一次,中國沒有接受幫助。

沒有權威的監察人

就字面看,現年61歲的中國國家衛生健康委員會主任馬曉偉博士是中國與醫療相關的官僚機構中最有權力的人,他擁有在武漢阻止病毒傳播的強大資源。

但實際上,他的手腳被體制束縛。

在中共的等級制度下,他處於精英階層的邊緣,要盡很大努力才能引起忙得不可開交的領導人注意。北京以外的地方疾控部門官員通常只聽本地上級官員而不是馬曉偉的話。

「省領導有更多的發言權,」公共衛生專家黃嚴忠說。

但1月8日,馬曉偉派了第二個專家組去武漢,繼續之前的北京專家未完成的工作。武漢的官員稱,已經有幾天沒有發現新的感染病例了,北京新來的專家組也沒有公開質疑該說法。

「大家一直懷疑有沒有傳染性,但是流行病學的調查結果沒有明確的結論,」北京大學第一醫院呼吸內科醫生王廣發在接受採訪時說,他是第二個專家組的主要成員。

然而,在武漢的許多醫院裡,發熱病房人滿為患。同濟醫院的趙建平醫生對他所看到的情況毫不懷疑。

「大家都還沒有預想到有現在這麼嚴重,」呼吸科主任趙建平向一個中文的醫學網站描述情況時說。「不過,可以明確的是,知道它具有傳染性,有『人傳人』的現象。」

中南醫院開設了24小時發熱門診和隔離病房,兩處的患者很快讓醫院應接不暇。

「感覺要大禍臨頭了,」中南醫院院長王行環博士對中國的《財新》雜誌說。他說,他試圖警告官員,甚至把SARS如何從掩蓋升級為全面性危機的時間表發給了他們。

在北京專家組去過的幾家武漢醫院裡都發生了醫生和護士被感染的情況。但醫護人員被感染的情況沒有包括在提供給到訪專家的官方數字裡。

據《中國科學報》後來的報導,中南醫院向省委領導提交了三份分析報告,警告「該病傳染性與致病性極強」。中南醫院院長王行環對《財新》說,他等待著北京專家的來訪。

北京的專家從未到來。

武漢的醫生明白,從政治上講,承認這個問題對他們幾乎沒有任何好處。按照中共的等級排序,湖北省委書記——他手下的官員們曾就病毒發出讓人放心的言論——比國家衛生健康委員會主任的官大。

「知道了又能怎麼樣呢?我也聽說有醫務人員感染了,」武漢人民醫院呼吸和危重症醫學科醫生余昌平對一家中國報紙講述今年1月前幾週的情況時說。「但當時有關這方面的紀律已經很明確,我能說嗎?」

馬曉偉並非沒有意識到風險在不斷上升。一名去泰國旅行的武漢遊客已成為中國境外的第一例確診病例。1月14日,國家衛健委將全國各地的醫療官員召集起來,開了一次(當時保密的)影片會議,討論了應對這種病毒的預防措施。

那之後,衛健委發了一份長達63頁的內部通知,向中國各地的醫院和疾病控制中心提出了如何追蹤和阻止這種新病毒的建議,通知似乎已經認為這種病毒具有傳染性。

不過這份通知在關鍵問題上閃爍其詞。其中一處稱,「病例無明確的人傳人證據。」

「你們講實話的最後機會」

1月中旬,習近平主持召開了一次有20多名高級官員參加的會議。會上沒提新冠病毒,至少在當時和後來的官方會議總結中是這樣。

習近平一直忙於其他事務:向官員灌輸共產主義價值觀的運動,還有1月15日與美國簽定貿易協議的事情。

「中央政府的全部注意力似乎都在這項貿易協議上,」1月中旬與中國高級官員交談過的一名美國企業高管說。「沒人提過流行病的問題。」

然而,在北京以南約2000公里的廣東省,包括鍾南山在內的衛生官員和專家的顧慮並沒有打消。

鍾南山在幫助將SARS的問題暴露出來,並呼籲公眾不要恐慌方面起的作用,讓他確立了一個特殊地位。甚至在他職業生涯的早期,鍾南山表現得也比較突出,他是中國在20世紀70年代末送往西方接受培訓的首批醫生之一,曾在倫敦和愛丁堡學習。

「他已經享有舉足輕重的地位,」愛丁堡大學的威廉·麥克尼(William MacNee)教授說。「甚至在那時,我就感覺到他有點政治人物的樣子。」

鍾南山現在是廣東一家呼吸系統疾病中心的負責人,他在1月中旬了解到深圳一家醫院的病例。深圳與香港毗鄰。一個去過武漢的家庭回來後病毒檢測呈陽性。全家人都沒去過那個海鮮市場。

這家的一名親戚在1月14日去醫院探視後病毒檢測呈陽性,此人從未去過武漢。病毒正像接力棒一樣從一人傳到下一人。

「我知道情況非常嚴重,」香港大學傳染病學教授袁國勇說,他幫助調查過這個病例。「我立刻拉響了警報。」

廣東省官員於1月16日召開緊急會議,讓醫院和衛生官員做好準備。在沿海的浙江省,曾任省衛生廳廳長的李蘭娟醫生聽說武漢醫院已有醫生被感染。她打電話給身在北京的馬曉偉,敦促再次派專家去考察。

政治格局已經發生了變化。廣東和浙江都是經濟大省,別的不說,這兩省的權力都比湖北省大。1月18日,馬曉偉讓鍾南山帶隊第三個專家組去武漢考察。

到武漢後,鍾南山從以前的學生那裡了解到,「湖北的實際情況,遠比當時公開或新聞報導的要嚴重,」他對廣東一家報紙說。他還和中南醫院院長一起吃早飯,後者描述了一場正在發生的災難。

然而,當湖北省省長王曉東在一個酒店會議室裡與鍾南山的專家組見面時,官員們仍堅稱疫情可控。這次見面很快變成了一場對峙。

據最近出版的一本關於鍾南山的書,專家組的另一名專家曾光對官員說,「今天是你們講實話的最後機會。」

其中一名官員最終承認,武漢協和醫院已有15名醫務人員可能已被感染,這等於承認了人際傳播,該書寫道。鍾南山需要的就是這個,他馬上帶著專家組趕往北京。

專家組的這次考察給中國最高衛生官員馬曉偉提供了政治上的掩護,讓他可以提請最高領導人採取緊急行動,外交關係委員會的專家黃嚴忠說。

「他們已經做好了改變做法的準備,」黃嚴忠說。「他們只需要有個人出來推動一下。」

第二天早上,鍾南山來到中共領導人居住的與世隔絕的中南海。習近平當時在中國西南部,李克強總理聽取了專家們對病毒在蔓延的警告。

「現在病情發展正處於一個節骨眼上,」鍾南山在當晚通過電視直播的新聞發布會上說。「現在已經有很多人病了,而且很多人也已經外出了。」

三天後,中國宣布了571例新冠肺炎確診病例,儘管專家估計的實際確診病例數已達數千例。習近平回到北京後宣布對有1100萬人口的城市武漢進行封城。

改寫歷史

11天後,習近平面臨著一場政治危機。

中國的互聯網上迴響起憤怒之聲,人們對武漢醫生李文亮因試圖提醒同事注意新冠病毒後遭警方訓斥表示憤怒。李文亮當時已經感染了病毒,住進了重症監護室。幾週前,膽子大了的中國記者已對處理疫情上的失策和謊言做了帶猛烈抨擊的報導。

在激烈的批評聲下,習近平在2月3日的政治局會議上為自己的所作所為進行了辯護,稱他從早期起就在關注病毒問題。

從1月25日的中國農曆新年長假開始,「疫情防控是我最關注的問題,」習近平會上說,他的這個講話當時沒有公開。

感染病例和死亡人數持續上升。2月7日,李文亮去世,引發了全國各地人們的悼念。對習近平權力掌控的質疑開始擴散。

急於顯示習近平仍大權在握的宣傳官員公開了他2月初在政治局會議上的講話。但這卻引發了更多的問題。

在這個講話公開之前,習近平對疫情危機的最早言論是1月20日發表的。但習近平在講話中聲稱,他早在1月7日就已對疫情發出了內部指示,那是在中國正式宣布引發這種疾病的是冠狀病毒之前。

「北京想建立這樣一個記錄,讓別人不能說中國領導人未曾覺察到問題的嚴重性,」澳洲洛伊研究所(Lowy Institute)高級研究員馬利德(Richard McGregor)說,他一直在研究中國應對疫情的情況。

人們在中國的互聯網上問道,為什麼沒有更早地警告他們,既然這個問題已經緊急到上了習近平議事日程的程度。他們問道,為什麼不公開習近平指示的具體內容?

但習近平的這個講話只是後來(在危機發生的同時)改寫危機歷史的前兆。習近平說,在遏制病毒感染的同時,中共需要在人們如何看疫情上「佔據主動」。

習近平對官員說,「國際社會高度關注疫情發展,要主動回應國際關切,講好中國抗擊疫情故事。」

到3月時,歐洲的感染病例已在急劇上升,然後是美國,而中國的感染病例則開始下降。

中國對疫情推出了新的官方敘事,描述了武漢與北京之間迅速且無縫的協調。與這個敘事相矛盾的情節和人物從人們的視野中消失了。當局拘留了曾經批評習近平的

  • More significant, the Chinese government would have found it much harder, if not impossible, to manipulate the WHO into setting terms of reference that favored China’s obstructive goals and kept WHO inspectors who visited China this February from accessing records vital to understanding the origin of the pandemic.

Xia Le: China's numbers don't tell full story on foreign investment ~ 23 Jul 2015
https://asia.nikkei.com/Economy/Xia-Le-China-s-numbers-don-t-tell-full-story-on-foreign-investment

There was a lot of excitement earlier in the year about figures suggesting that China's outward investment roughly matched the amount it received from abroad last year.

Optimism seems well-founded. According to data from the Ministry of Commerce, foreign direct investment in China increased by an anemic 1.7% in 2014 compared with the previous year, reaching $119.6 billion. Meanwhile, overseas direct investment from China rose by almost 7.6% to $116 billion. The implications of this shift appear huge, marking a turning point in China's development and representing an unprecedented shift in economic influence away from developed economies and toward emerging Asia. But China's official statistics may be significantly distorted and should be taken with a grain of salt.



Less than meets the eye

In fact, a closer look at the data reveals just how premature observers were in proclaiming outward investment overtook FDI.

Chinese ODI statistics are distorted by a number of factors, paramount among which is the fact that the Ministry of Commerce requires companies to register the first, rather than the final, destination of cross-border transactions and does not take into account reverse flows.

To put this into context, some 70% of all Chinese ODI goes to Hong Kong, the Cayman Islands and the British V-irgin Islands, an amount that far exceeds the financing needs of those economies. These are predominantly stopovers that serve two important functions. First, China's tight capital controls mean that these locations act as intermediaries for investment flows between China and the rest of the world, a phenomenon known as offshoring.

To further complicate things, funds are sometimes channeled via these stopover locations with the goal of bringing them back to China as FDI to take advantage of preferential terms. This "round-tripping" is estimated to comprise around 40% of total outbound investment flows to these stopover locations.

Assuming the capital sent to offshore centers gets reinvested at its final destination, and the round-tripping money returns to China as FDI in the same year, this should give us a picture of the true ratio of outbound to inbound investment. Unfortunately, it is not that simple. It can take a number of years for this capital to complete its journey, so round-tripping and offshoring can boost outbound figures without being balanced out by the inbound data from the same year. This distorts both sets of data.

Any analysis that fails to take into consideration these limitations in the data should be considered inconclusive. According to our estimates, Chinese ODI flows in 2013 may have been overstated due to round-tripping, with the true figure closer to $82 billion. The same is probably true for 2014, and calls into question the assumption that Chinese ODI will exceed FDI very soon.

China may very well become a net exporter of capital in the near future. The upward trend in China's ODI is here to stay. China is already the third-largest foreign direct investor in the world, but its share of world ODI remains modest, at 2.3%. Japan accounts for 4.5%, while the U.S. share is 22%. China's share may be even smaller when factoring out funds that are round-tripped. Nor do the official statistics include the devaluation of assets over time. So China has a lot of catching up to do.

Beijing is seeking to accelerate its "going out" strategy and has already taken a number of measures to further ease procedures for ODI. In addition, we expect to see more initiatives that aim to boost China's influence overseas formally drafted into the country's 13th five-year plan, such as the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank and the "One Belt, One Road" strategy.

The acceleration of China's ODI will help the country in its rebalancing efforts, in internationalizing its companies and in raising productivity. This will also help China to put its $4 trillion of foreign reserves to good use by diversifying its international investment position away from reserve assets and toward ODI.

It remains to be seen whether China will soon become a net exporter of capital. The economy is well-positioned to go past that tipping point, but it may not happen as soon as the official figures suggest.

Xia Le is chief economist for Asia at BBVA Research. He is also a research fellow with the International Monetary Institute at Renmin University of China.

Round-tripping
  • Round-tripping is the process where funds are returned after being transferred to an entity, shell company, financial instruments, location, or a person that have lower regulatory standards or obligations – giving the impression that the funds have derived from a clean source and thus completing a round trip.

Sessions of the CCP’s Congress are held every 5 years making up the most senior CCP members in the country. The next meeting is scheduled to be held at the end of 2022.
  • The bill would provide a waiver to the President if the President could certify that the CCP has ended its theft of American intellectual property, ends its genocide of Uyghur Muslims, ends its incursions into Taiwan, and stops its human rights abuses in Hong Kong. The waiver would sunset within 2 years and have to be renewed by Congress to prevent abuse by the administration.

  • The German military will send 1,000 anti-tank weapons and 500 "Stinger" class surface-to-air missiles to Ukraine amid the ongoing Russian invasion, the government announced. Government spokesman Steffen Hebestreit said the weapons would be delivered as soon as possible to support the Ukrainian military. Chancellor Olaf Scholz said it was Germany's "duty to support Ukraine to the best of its ability in defending itself against the invading army of Vladimir Putin."
  • Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy praised Germany's decision to send weapons, in a major reversal of policy for Berlin. "Keep it up, Chancellor Olaf Scholz! Anti-war coalition in action!" Zelenskyy tweeted.

How China could be driving up global inflation ~ 24 Dec 2021

  • The world is paying for China's food stockpile.
  • Beijing is said to be hoarding more than 50% of the world's grain.
  • This has led to a steep rise in global food prices. Millions more are suffering from famine.
China hoards over half the world's grain, pushing up global prices
https://asia.nikkei.com/Spotlight/Datawatch/China-hoards-over-half-the-world-s-grain-pushing-up-global-prices

Testy ties with U.S. and Australia could be prodding China to boost food reserves

By Shin Watanabe and Aiko Munakata, Nikkei staff writers
December 23, 2021 16:47 JST

DALIAN, China/TOKYO -- Less than 20% of the world's population has managed to stockpile more than half of the globe's maize and other grains, leading to steep price increases across the planet and dropping more countries into famine.

The hoarding is taking place in China.

COFCO Group, a major Chinese state-owned food processor, runs one of China's largest food stockpiling bases, at the port of Dalian, in the northeastern part of the country. It stores beans and grains gathered from home and abroad in 310 huge silos. From there, the calories make their way throughout China via rail and sea.

China is maintaining its food stockpiles at a "historically high level," Qin Yuyun, head of grain reserves at the National Food and Strategic Reserves Administration, told reporters in November. "Our wheat stockpiles can meet demand for one and a half years. There is no problem whatsoever about the supply of food."

According to data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, China is expected to have 69% of the globe's maize reserves in the first half of crop year 2022, 60% of its rice and 51% of its wheat.

The projections represent increases of around 20 percentage points over the past 10 years, and the data clearly shows that China continues to hoard grain.

China spent $98.1 billion importing food (beverages are not included) in 2020, up 4.6 times from a decade earlier, according to the General Administration of Customs of China. In the January-September period of 2021, China imported more food than it had since at least 2016, which is as far back as comparable data goes.

Over the past five years, China's soybean, maize and wheat imports soared two- to twelvefold on aggressive purchases from the U.S., Brazil and other supplier nations. Imports of beef, pork, dairy and fruit jumped two- to fivefold.

Some of China's imports are being aided by Chinese companies on overseas acquisition sprees. Leading meat processor WH Group acquired a European peer in June, while Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group purchased a leading New Zealand dairy company in 2019.

Food prices are on the rise around the world. The food price index, calculated by the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization, in November stood about 30% higher than a year earlier. "Hoarding by China is one reason for rising prices," said Akio Shibata, president of the Natural Resource Research Institute in Tochigi Prefecture, north of Tokyo.

China is importing more grain and other food because domestic production is unable to keep up with consumption. While demand for feedstuffs for pigs and other livestock is expanding on the back of economic growth, the number of consumers looking for high-quality overseas produce is also increasing.

China's production of wheat and other provisions as well as the amount of land used for agriculture plateaued in 2015. "Agricultural productivity in China is low due to the dispersion of farmland and soil contamination," said Goro Takahashi, a professor emeritus at Aichi University and expert on Chinese agriculture. "The amount of agricultural production will continue to stall as farmers migrate to urban areas."

Chinese President Xi Jinping keeps stressing the importance of food security. The National People's Congress, China's national legislature, in April adopted a food waste law that bans excessive leftovers. At the end of October, the Chinese Communist Party and the State Council instructed officials on how to reduce food waste.

And the NPC is not finished legislating on food security.

Chinese in their 50s and older experienced food shortages during the Cultural Revolution (1966 to 1976). "People of our generation remember hunger to a greater or lesser extent," Xi once said, according to China's state-run Xinhua News Agency.

Throughout history, food shortages have triggered popular unrest. They served as a contributing factor to uprisings that toppled Chinese dynasties. And the world's second largest economy now faces food uncertainties due to factors such as its deteriorating relations with the U.S. and Australia, which could drastically alter the import environment. In fact, this could be what is prodding China to boost its calorie reserves.

The number of people living in * regions topped 700 million in 2020, an increase of more than 100 million from five years earlier, according to the U.N.

"Although developed nations as a whole are responsible for famine," Takahashi said, "China's responsibility is heavier. China should contribute to resolving the maldistribution of food."

Covid: How Hong Kong's deadly outbreak was avoidable ~ 30 Mar 2022
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nu-8fc_4IJY
  • Hong Kong’s situation is the product of several specific policy failures, which stem partly from Beijing’s decision to take greater control of the financial hub after 2019’s pro-democracy protests. Above all, the city’s government utterly failed at vaccinating older adults, botching public-education campaigns and allowing misinformation about the shots to run rampant among those residents. Hong Kong is still reporting hundreds of Covid deaths each day, overwhelmingly among unvaccinated older people.
  • It remains unclear, however, how Hong Kong can move toward substantially looser policies without a similar shift occurring on the mainland.

  • 其丈夫要求和妻子一起隔离,但不被允许。丈夫甚至组织了护理中心全部家属,并占领一个房间,把门从内堵死抗争,坚决拒绝离开护理中心。但警察来了,攻进房间,以破坏抗疫的理由抓走了丈夫。护理中心许诺另外安排护理人员,然而一个护理人员要管十几个人,而负责李昶的人不会吸痰。仅仅一天后,尚未恢复语言功能的李昶,已无法呼救,因无人为她吸痰,窒息而死。

https://www.voachinese.com/a/china-media-watch-supreme-leader-and-zero-covid-policy-at-all-costs-20220405/6515708.html
  • 冯崇义认为,中国之所以坚持这种灾难性的防疫政策,主要是因为这个政策是来自 “定于一尊、一锤定音” 的中共领袖习近平,而习近平坚持这种破产的政策并非是因为不了解实情。
  • 他说:“即使是毛泽东当年在1959年开庐山会议的时候各方面的信息,包括他派遣他自己的警卫下去收集的信息都足够充足,他不是不知情。他是知情的,现在习近平有更多信息收集渠道,可以知道清零政策执行的实况,包括经济危机、人道灾难。但他为什么还要这样做?我刚才已经讲了,这是他的政治逻辑使然。”
  • 在冯崇义看来,习近平从中共前独裁者毛泽东那里继承下来的政治逻辑是:“我们要知道这个专制政权它最关注的是政权危机,不是经济危机、社会危机。如果他的评估是这些经济危机、社会危机不会引发政权危机,他是很冷血的。就象当年的大跃进、大饥荒死了那么多人,毛还是一意孤行,把本来是要反左倾庐山会议开成了反右倾的会议,继续变本加厉地饿死更多人。” 据信有几千万人死于以毛泽东为首的中共当局1950年代末和1960年代初制造的大饥荒。
  • 在批评人士批评以习近平为首的中共当局把防疫这样的科学问题当作政治和意识形态问题来处理,以政治压倒科学、压倒民生和经济之际,中国官方媒体的宣传似乎在应和批评者的这种批评。
