Jim I respectfully disagree. Kim is legitimating peaceful relations w the US, and writing a new narrative of the US as non-threatening. Opens up all kinds of good possibilities. North Korean media needs to be read in their context, not ours.
Chinese banking seems to be having a bit of a “Dubai moment”. Creditors trying to work out what’s guaranteed by the state - and what isn’t. https://www.breakingviews.com/considered-view/chinas-bank-turmoil-locks-in-moral-hazard/ … by @cbeddor
