A Crise, a ameaça e o novo chefe em Tóquio
1. "Why will Americans fall on their fountain-pens for their bankers? If America is to adopt socialism, why not have socialism for the poor, rather than for the rich? Why should American households that earn $50,000 a year subsidize Goldman Sachs partners who earn $5 million a year?"
Pergunta Spengler em mais uma crónica no Asia Times sobre a crise financeira nos EUA.
2. "The growth of China and the Pacific region, and the United States' political involvement therein, increasingly renders the European Union superfluous. Political and economic growth is concentrated in the Asia-Pacific region, while the EU flounders on the periphery".
Francesco Sisci , editor para Ásia do La Stampa, no Asia Times: "China threat? It's a blessing"
3. A Era pós-Koizumi está complicada. Depois de Abe e Fukuda, entra em cena Taro Aso. Será primeiro ministro durante mais de um ano?
"Japanese ruling party names Taro Aso as new leader", The Guardian.
