Taiwan Tati Cultural and Educational Foundation

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 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.

Ma-Ying-jeou's Flexible Diplomacy, ECFA and Flying by the Seat of Your Pants

All politicians seek a catch word or phrase to use for spin and glorification of their policies. Ever since Ma Ying-jeou's inauguration, one phrase Taiwan and the world have regularly heard bandied about is how "Ma has Flexible Diplomacy." Whatever that means has been anyone's guess but with the recent happenings in Honduras things suspiciously took a turn for the worse in finding an appropriate definition.

The nation’s financial regulator unexpectedly signed a financial memorandum of understanding (MOU) with Beijing at 6pm via a document exchange yesterday, sealing the much awaited pact.

Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) chairman Sean Chen (陳冲) announced in the evening that he represented Taiwan in signing the documents — one in traditional Chinese and one in simplified Chinese — with Chinese authorities through a document exchange at 6pm.
