Yonaguni plans raise questions of Taiwan

Recent news reports said the US and Japan are planning to station military on Yonaguni Island in response to demands from local residents following China’s military expansion. A closer analysis, however, shows that it is more likely that such a military deployment would be the result of US and Japanese questions about the future strategic direction of Taiwan. In other words, the move is aimed at Taiwan rather than China.

Sell Your Taiwanese Stocks!

Upon seeing Crystal Hsu’s business reporting on Taipei Times yesterday (July 2nd, 2009), something alerted me greatly.

I have been following stock markets since my days as an undergrad.  That’s more than 15 years ago.  And I don’t remember seeing the Taiwan’s broad stock market index averaging a p/e (price to earnings) ratio over 40 times.  According to Hsu’s report, Kevin Hsiao, the head of UBS Wealth Management Research Taiwan, had pointed out that that p/e ratio is the highest among all four “small dragons” of Southeast Asia.  Another observation on Hsaio’s data is that Taiwan’s p/e ratio is more than twice as large comparing against all the other three small dragons (Hong Kong 18.2x, South Korea 14.7x, Singapore 15.5x) and China (14.3x) and India (16.6).  Amazing.

On Iran’s Protest of Election Outcome and Referendum on ECFA

On the behalf of Taiwan Tati Cultural & Educational Foundation, I would like to express concern and outrage as well as sympathy for Iranian protesters demanding a fair voting system after watching CNN reporting from Tehran last night.  The headlines are troubling.  We are particularly concerned about the violation of freedom of speech in that the Iranian government openly requires permission for foreign media reporting…

Dog eat dog, Aboriginal-style

It might be the effects of the economic downturn, but there is something rather strange about the dwindling role of ethnicity in political discourse in recent months.

True, when cash is a problem, people tend to fine-tune their priorities and focus on what really matters — and this might help to extract nonsensical ethnic politics from day-to-day political activity.

Media maggots hit new low

The desperation of Taiwan has sunk to a new low. Not only are the last 20-odd years of democratization being thrown on the scrap heap by Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) media clout and island-wide patronage, but now the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is also seemingly falling over itself to contribute to this nation’s complete subjugation.

Newsflash

The Ministry of the Interior (MOI) yesterday denied allegations by the Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and the media that its request for details of any government money spent on the Dalai Lama’s visit to Taiwan by local governments was politically motivated.

“As the government authority in charge of religious affairs, we received a request from the Control Yuan to see if government money was spent by the seven local governments that invited the Dalai Lama to cover his expenses,” Civil Affairs Department Director Huang Li-hsin (黃麗馨) told the Taipei Times by telephone yesterday. “The Control Yuan made the request because they received a public petition asking if government money was spent to cover the expenses of the Dalai Lama’s visit and whether this was in violation of the separation of religion and state clause in the Constitution.”
