North Korea’s Thermonuclear Test: Challenge to World or Path to Self-Preservation?

The year 2016 began on a worrisome note on the Korean peninsula. There has been yet another nuclear test by Pyongyang, which will have fairly long-term consequences, will trigger yet another censorious Security Council resolution with an expanded package of sanctions, and will also prompt stepped-up military activity in the region by the US, Japan, and South Korea. This will inevitably lead to a new cycle of burgeoning tension on and around the Korean peninsula...

Chinese Economic Miracle Is Far from Over

With the recent news of the volatility on the Chinese stock market and a slowing economy, many spivs and speculators have been fretting over the fundamental health and long term wellbeing of the Chinese economy. Is the world's second largest (or perhaps even first) economy headed into a severe downturn or prolonged slump? Will China be able to successfully effect a transition from a manufacturing and export led economy to one with a stronger consumer led and services orientated equilibrium?..

US: Show of Military Muscle against North Korea

Just days after the North Korea’s nuclear (allegedly hydrogen) bomb test, the US and South Korea conducted a show of force by flying a US B-52 bomber over Osan Air Base, South Korea, some 70 kilometers (45 miles) south of the inter-Korean border.
