Two meetings; US warning to PRC over Russia sanctions; "Empire of lies"; Omicron on the mainland
I do not have anything insightful to put into a commentary today. We are in a but of a lull as we await the end of the two meetings.
I do have an announcement.
Substack, the platform on which I publish Sinocism, has launched an app for iOS. I have been beta testing it for several months and love it, as it lets me read all the newsletters to which I subscribe in one place, avoid all the problems that can come from email delivery, and fix typos after I send out the newsletter, among the many benefits.
If you are interested in trying out the app you can click the button below:
You can also do nothing and nothing will change in the way you receive the newsletter.
Here is what Sinocism looks like in the app:
Today’s Essential Eight:
