Just bought a book…

Downloaded Kevin Carrico’s Two Systems, Two Countries (available here). 

Published by UC Press – an intro by the author here. His theme dates back to a short column he wrote following the disqualification of lawmakers in 2016. 

The full title includes the ‘N’ word. Wonder if any physical bookstores in Hong Kong will carry it. Indeed, given that Carrico tackles the forbidden concept head-on, will we see an eruption of fury from the government denouncing (and publicizing) the work? Will they issue a NatSec fatwa, with threats to extradite him for conspiracy to incite secession or whatever? 

The contents look slightly daunting (‘ethnogenesis’?), but a quick flick-through suggests enlightening and even entertaining reading. Will report back.

    OK, its proably not a Good Story, but shows how Honkers can still rock the financial world……………………………….

    Please don’t share dimsum daily as it’s a rag with proven fake news stories in the “Joshua Wong trains army in NT hills with the CIA” variety.

    Guanleisei — care to enlighten us what you do share or read? It was a good article on all the SBF FTX that I have read through all sources so far. Can you post the article that you think is better please?

    Am fully aware of Dimsum’s leanings but where else can you now find updates on what is actually going on in our city, like the tragic 3-4 suicides every day, road accidents, fatalities on construction sites, court cases not related to NSL, etc. Certainly not in SCMP that no longer has any reporters on the ground. Standard is focused on financials and property market. Our previous reads are now history.
    If there is another source of information, in English, on the daily grind then please share the link
