    The Economist is the defender of the old British colonialist economic world order. They hate anything that counters or criticizes it. It's like Boris Johnson bragging about everyone speaking English in the world as compared to China where the world doesn't speak Chinese. Yeah leave out the part where people speak English around the world because it was done under the barrel of a gun and you have the Economist.

    Maybe the morning star. Or is it the daily sports. Or how about the local town crier!
    Come on Jura. You know better than this. So stop right now please. After all this is a forum for exchange. We want to keep it civil.

    The Economist magazine has been biased long before they were banned. Indeed, that was the reason it was banned.

    They are as rabidly anti-China as they are pro-American.

    It is just another propaganda tool staffed with useful idiots who’s primary recruitment criteria is how fervently they believe in the party line.

    I had a subscription to TE for a while as a student, and whenever they call me up trying to get me to re-subscribe, I always tell them I’m not interested because of their politics, and that’s always enough. The guy/girl never tries to convince me more after hearing that, so that tells you how blatant their political bias is.

    Sadly, economics is one of those fields with significant element of judgement involved because of how complicated it is.

    There are so many variables and interlinked conditions that there will almost never be a scenario where government policy precisely matches all the prescription of an armchair economist, thereby it is incredibly difficult to prove them wrong when their predictions don’t come true, since they can point to the smallest divination and claim that to be the deciding factor.

    With the likes of the Economist and other western propaganda outfits, when it comes to their persistent failures wrt China, they can always drag out their old go to excuse of casting doubt on official Chinese government statistics.

    As if all of China’s gleaming skyscrapers and the growing wealth that almost all Chinese citizens are experiencing are all just made up numbers.

    Japan's NHK and Nikkei Shimbun possess the most respected journalism I can think of. They are more factual, genuinely balanced than western counterpart, very enlightening and serves the public. It is not totally devoid of politics but you will find more balance in their reporting, minimal if any blatant propaganda like many of their western counterpart. You will not see many western publications reference these outlet because it does not serve their agenda. Western media is controlled by a few select group, too compromised by special interest and not accountable to truthfulness and general public.

    People's Daily and Xinhua should emulate them if not already. They tend to have more similarity than their western counterpart.

    u cant beat lies with truth u gotta lie even better

    u cant beat western imperialism with pacifism
    u cant beat the western propaganda machine by staying quiet

    the world doesnt work like that because the west mastered manipulation of the masses

    if uve ever played risk or civilization u’d know that the bullshit (war, propaganda, ...) never ends until there is only 1 person left standing.

    Huawei has over 50% of the market in Europe for 4G. If the European countries follow the US order to ban Huawei on 5G, they would definitely shoot themselves in the foot. We've heard German operators propose alternatives to banning Huawei on 5G, now it's the British operators.
