U.S.-China relations have been on a generally downward trajectory since it became apparent during the later Obama years that America’s longstanding policy of diplomatic and economic engagement had failed to bring China around to embrace democratic institutions or accept the rules-based international order led by the United States. On all fronts—diplomatic, military, and commercial—the relationship has been an exceptionally bumpy ride since Donald Trump assumed office. With the advent of COVID-19, international relations scholars and professional China watchers say, things have gone rapidly from bad to worse.Indeed, U.S.-China relations haven’t been this choleric since the bad old days of the Vietnam War, when the People's Republic of China (PRC) was thought to be the engine behind the communist effort to conquer South Vietnam, American and Chinese soldiers were killing each other, and the United States refused to recognize the legitimacy of the government in Beijing. (Yes, China’s People’s Liberation Army suffered several thousand casualties during the Vietnam War, when it sent advisers and support troops to North Vietnam.)Since March, the two governments have been reduced to trading insults and taunts, closing consulates, and mounting demonization campaigns against “the enemy” for the benefit of their respective domestic audiences, thereby further poisoning the atmosphere. Trump’s chief national security adviser, Robert O’Brien, recently compared President Xi Jinping to one of the greatest mass murderers in history, Josef Stalin, while Secretary of State Mike Pompeo issued a series of bombastic, thinly veiled threats against Beijing for a pattern of theft of intellectual property, economic coercion, and military bullying in the highly contested South China Sea.Official Chinese media responded by calling Pompeo “deranged” and “the enemy of mankind.” When President Trump took the surprising step of closing China’s consulate in Houston, Xi responded by closing the American consulate in Chengdu in Western China.History’s Next Great War Zone: The South China SeaMeanwhile, the PRC, say leading China experts Kurt Campbell and Mira Rapp-Hooper in a recent issue of Foreign Affairs, has been on “an unprecedented diplomatic offensive.” It passed a new national security law that gravely undermines free speech and assembly in Hong Kong, violating Beijing’s agreement with the United Kingdom over its former colony. It has stepped up both the number and the assertiveness of its naval patrols in the disputed South China Sea, sinking a Vietnamese fishing boat, and running patrols in Indonesian waters. It has imposed draconian economic sanctions against Australia for calling for an investigation into the origins of COVID, and sparked several brawls between Indian and PLA troops by crossing into Indian territory. Perhaps most ominously, in its annual call for unification with Taiwan, Chinese diplomats dropped the adjective “peaceful” before the word “unification.”In another recent essay in Foreign Affairs, former Undersecretary of Defense Michele Flournoy says that the risk of war between the world’s two greatest powers “is higher than it has been for decades, and it is growing.”There are many reasons why relations have degenerated.Rising powers almost inevitably butt heads with the dominant nation in their region, says the distinguished Harvard international relations expert Graham Allison. And more often than not, he argues in Destined for War: Can America and China Escape Thucydides’ Trap?, their clash has spilled beyond diplomatic maneuvering and economic competition to violent conflict. The United States and China both see themselves as exceptional nations, chosen by providence to play leading roles in the world, and of course, they have radically different, in many ways diametrically opposed, political systems.But according to Flournoy and a growing body of experts, there’s another, more remediable reason for the dangerous slide toward military conflict. The credibility of America’s commitment to deter Chinese aggression in Asia against its neighbors, writes Flournoy, “has been declining. For Beijing, the 2008-9 financial crisis gave rise to an enduring narrative of U.S. decline and Chinese superiority that has been reinforced by perceptions of U.S. withdrawal from the world—as well as… by its perception of bungled U.S. management of the pandemic and societal upheaval over racism.”In other words, the Chinese, normally cautious and conservative in the international arena and anxious to avoid any sort of military confrontation, have begun to take a more aggressive course of action in Asia because policymakers in Beijing no longer believe that Washington has the will or the wherewithal to stop them. Indeed, it seems increasingly obvious in light of the recent spate of Chinese diplomatic and military initiatives in the region that Xi Jinping’s long-touted “China Dream” of “peaceful development” entails replacing the United States as the dominant strategic player in East Asia through a strategy of regional hegemony.China is currently employing a deftly integrated mix of economic, political, and military pressure to further degrade America’s faltering position in Asia. It seeks to create an alternative to the rules-based international order that emerged under American leadership after World War II by forming a rival community of nations sympathetic to its own vision and policies, and with its own set of international development and finance institutions.The engine driving this strategy, up until recently at least, has been coercive economic power rather than military might. China has been especially innovative in its use of economic clout to obtain strategic advantages. It is the leading trading partner now with virtually every country in Asia, and it regularly penalizes its partners for taking political stances not to its liking.Since 2013 it has spent more than $400 billion on a burgeoning network of foreign ports, roads, railways, and airfields linking China to the rest of Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. It uses the leverage it gains from loans and grants in the “Belt and Road Initiative”—many of which cannot possibly be repaid—to help create compliant, even dependent, governments.Many of these projects have a not-so-subtle way of enhancing China’s military capabilities. Beijing began investing heavily in Djibouti on the Horn of Africa back in 2000, including a major port development project “for civilian use.” In the summer of 2017, the People’s Liberation Army announced that it had established its first naval base outside of China around that port in Djibouti.In Cambodia, a Chinese company has been building a massive deep water port and airport in Koh Province, purportedly to help grow Cambodia’s lackluster economy. Western intelligence officials are all but certain that Chinese military forces will soon be deployed to the area. There is incontrovertible evidence that Beijing has already signed a secret agreement with Cambodian strongman Hun Sen to deploy Chinese forces at Ream Naval Base, where they could challenge a U.S. effort to respond to a PRC invasion of Taiwan. “A profusion of Chinese infrastructure projects like these,” writes leading Cambodian politician Sam Rainsy, “which benefit few in Cambodia beyond Hun Sen and his circle, have alienated ordinary Cambodians and become the focus of popular anger. With Chinese support, Hun Sen’s regime has systematically undermined Cambodia’s democratic opposition and eviscerated its free press… Hun Sen often behaves more like an obedient Chinese regional governor than a prime minister.”China is investing heavily in educational and cultural programs to enhance perceptions of the regime abroad, but it’s in the military sphere that its intentions vis-a-vis the United States are most glaringly apparent. Xi Jinping has been the driving force behind an extraordinary military modernization and reform program, shifting billions of dollars from a conscript-oriented ground force to the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN), which is now seen by defense experts as the most lethal and capable naval force on earth next to America’s, and already a worthy adversary to the U.S. Navy in both the Pacific and Indian oceans. Some experts believe China is ahead of the United States in technological fields with military applications, such as artificial and cyber intelligence.“Of greatest concern is the substantial investment Beijing has made in ‘anti-access/area-denial” (A2/AD) capabilities,’” writes Flournoy. “Ranging from persistent precision strikes on U.S. logistics, forces, and bases to electronic, kinetic, and cyber attacks on digital connections and systems inside U.S. battle management networks, these capabilities are designed to prevent the United States from projecting military power into East Asia in order to defend its interests or allies. As a result, in the event that conflict starts, the United States can no longer expect to quickly achieve air, space, or maritime superiority; the U.S. military would need to fight to gain advantage, and then to keep it, in the face of continuous efforts to disrupt and degrade its battle management networks.” Chinese military planners, it appears, are tightly focused on developing assets to counter the pillars of American military pre-eminence in Asia: the aircraft carrier battle group; information dominance, and air superiority.The most dramatic evidence of China’s intention to establish military dominance over East Asia through coercive means is surely its militarization of seven hotly disputed islets in the Spratly Islands in the South China Sea, and the bullying of neighbors with rival claims for attempting to exploit fishing and development rights to which they are plainly entitled under international law. Since 2013 China has built up and fortified approximately 3,200 acres of disputed islets and reefs in the South China Sea. It has placed surface-to-air missiles, sophisticated radars, jet fighter runways, and communications facilities there, despite Xi’s 2015 promise to President Obama that he would not militarize the region.Establishing military dominance over the South China Sea and other waters near China’s long coastline are seen by military analysts as a prerequisite to launching an invasion of Taiwan, with a view to reuniting that island bastion with the PRC by force—a development the United States has been determined to resist since the establishment of the PRC in 1949.According to the current National Defense Strategy of the United States (2018), the strategic competition between the PRC and the United States “is now the primary concern of U.S. national security.” Yet one searches in vain for a coherent statement of the Trump administration’s strategy to counter, deflect, or come to accommodation with China’s quest for regional hegemony. There is no American counterpart to the Belt and Road Initiative. Thus far, the much vaunted “pivot” of American forces from the Middle East to Asia has yet to materialize. All we have seen is a modest shift in military assets in that direction. Is the United States prepared to defend Taiwan in the event of an amphibious invasion? Will it defend countries like the Philippines, Vietnam, and Indonesia from military bullying in the South China Sea?We don’t know, and a good guess is that the chaos-plagued Trump administration doesn’t know either.What would Trump’s opponent in the upcoming election, Joe Biden, do? Biden shares Trump’s belief that China is pursuing predatory economic policies and military dominance in Asia. He might well continue to impose tariffs on Beijing, but Biden’s China policy would begin at home. To deal effectively with China’s rise, the United States, Biden argues, must restore its credibility as a leader of the democratic world order by mending frayed relations with allies and partners. With those allies and partners, he would build a strategy for curbing China’s economic and military predations. Biden would reinvigorate America’s commitment to defending human rights and the rule of law abroad and bring pressure to bear against Beijing for its abuses against minorities on the mainland and the people of Hong Kong.Instead of fretting over China’s startling gains in various strategic industries, the United States, says Biden, must up its own game. The Democrat has called for a government-sponsored program to enhance American innovation in artificial intelligence, quantum computing, and the next generation of the 5G network.Biden hasn’t outlined his China strategy in any great detail yet, but compared to Trump’s incoherent ranting about China, what he has said so far sounds like a promising start.Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The Spanish bank is seeking "strategic alternatives" after scrapping a merger with BBVA.
Mayuri Saxena first knew something was off when she began tripping at work and struggling to get out of her seat during her NYC subway commute. In just three months the 32-year-old became wheelchair-bound, but eventually she learned what was wrong: She had ALS.Facing a two- to five-year life expectancy from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, a degenerative neuro-muscular disease that largely impacts voluntary muscles including vocal cords, Saxena and her family looked to experimental drug trials as their only chance at treating the disease. One by one she was rejected either because of her wheelchair use, or being too far along in her disease.“That's honestly when our hope started going down the drain,” said Mayak Saxena, Mayuri’s brother. “To know that a treatment like that exists on this planet and on the other hand to see my sister suffering and dying and in pain. It's such a huge injustice that has to be remedied on so many fronts.”‘Lou Gehrig’s Disease? I Don’t Even Like Baseball.’ Comic Bob Smith on Living With ALSA new bill making its way through Congress could soon offer hope for Saxena and others with ALS who have been unable to make it into clinical trials. The bill, H.R.8662, and its Senate companion aims to give ALS patients early, expanded access to medical treatments in their stage 3 clinical phase. It would speed up access to the potentially life-saving treatments for those whose time is limited. It’s estimated that 30,000 people in the U.S. have ALS and 6,000 die of it annually. There is no current treatment for the disease.Advocates say that despite the risks associated with using a non-finalized drug, the law would give ALS patients a shot at life where there currently isn’t one. And they are hoping to get the legislation passed before the current Congress clocks out at the end of the year, warning that if the bill is pushed off until next session, more patients in need will die.“Everybody in the ALS community says, ‘I'm 100 percent going to die. With no options, there's nothing you can give me that is going to make me die, when I wouldn’t have died. There is a different risk/benefit analysis for me, let me make that choice,’” said Michelle Lorenz of Everything ALS, a patient-focused nonprofit. “We're going to lose 12,000 more people, if we don’t [pass it this year], by the time we get it reintroduced next session.”The 2014 Ice Bucket Challenge is largely attributed to raising the national name recognition of ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. The viral social media stunt that spurred friends to dare one another to dump buckets of ice cold water on their heads ultimately raised $115 million for one of the major ALS nonprofits. But today most patients when diagnosed still face few treatment options besides getting their houses in order and a hospice plan underway, a reality that creates what some patients label “ALS defeatism.” And there is still much that is not known about the disease. For 10 percent of patients, including Saxena, the disease is genetic, but for others the cause is unknown. The disease is known to disproportionately impact white men over the age of 60. Some experts believe there’s a link between chemicals found on military bases and elsewhere that explains why so many veterans have been diagnosed with ALS.Diagnosing patients with ALS is also tricky, and can take years—a major limiting factor for patients who want to get into the handful of experimental ALS drug trials. The companies developing the drugs set strict standards for the ideal test subject to measure outcomes by. Fewer than 10 percent of the ALS population qualifies for a trial.It’s a reality that can be hard to stomach for ALS patients and families who have no other options.“It's infuriating, because it's like, well, why do these trials even exist? What’s the point of compassionate use if there's not even any compassion that they're using,” said Mayak Saxena of his sister’s experience.It’s led to an increased push by advocates, and a growing sense of anger amongst patients at the limitations imposed by the Federal Drug Administration on drug access.“ALS has traditionally been a disease where, because of the time scenario and because of the age of people it normally strikes, there's been no time for protests. There's been no time to get angry about this disease. And that’s changing,” said Mike Henson, an ALS patient who is part of the online patient advocate group No More Excuses. “Patients have had enough of this crap.”Henson knows how important access to trial drugs are for those living with ALS. Earlier this year he was lucky enough to partake in the stage 3 trial for the drug NurOwn, and found success. During the several months that he was on the drug, his disease didn’t get any worse.Yet it’s taken NurOwn 10 years to develop to this point, and it’s still not available on the market. Even Henson can no longer access it now that the trial is over and he said he’s already seen his motor functions begin to drop.When he first found out he had ALS two years ago at the age of 47, Henson said he went to a “pretty dark place.”“You don’t live with ALS, you die with ALS,” he said.Of the drugs, Henson said access is everything.“We’re already written off. So truly for us, anything we try is, you know, the risk factor is zero, essentially.”In addition to opening up access for patients logistically, the legislation also authorizes for appropriations of $100 million in funding to cover the cost of the medication for patients so there would be no out-of-pocket fees. Advocates for the federal bill are pushing hard to get it signed into law before the end of this Congress, less than two months away. Any delay means more lost lives.For some of the members of Congress sponsoring the bill, the passage is also personal. Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-NE) lost his brother-in-law to ALS this past April. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AL) also has a cousin-in-law who died of the disease.So far there are 75 co-sponsors on the House bill and advocates are eagerly waiting for Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee Frank Pallone (D-NJ) to bring it to the committee for a full vote.Witnessing the slow crawl of the bi-partisan bill has been hard for some to bear, especially as they see COVID-19 drugs like remdesivir being fast-tracked and greenlit for consumer use in a groundbreaking time period.“I think in the ALS community that’s really angered people, like, ‘Why do you get access to a drug, and I can't?’” said Lorenz.Advocates and legislators know that it will be an uphill battle getting the ALS bill passed during a lame duck session coming off of a tumultuous presidential election. They have less than two months to get it to President Trump’s desk.“We have the logistical challenges of people not being in their offices, you know, but despite that, we still need to push through because we've worked so hard to just get where we are right now. And we're just around six weeks or so from the New Year. So we were really down to the wire,” said Mayak Saxena.“But, you know, we still hang our hat on hope.”Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

European markets had a touch of caution ahead of a barrage of economic data and as questions emerged over trial data on AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine, but that wasn't going to derail a November to remember. Germany's, France's, Italy's and Spain's main bourses all squeezed out gains and government bond yields stayed lows after the European Central Bank reinforced expectations of further stimulus next month. "Risk sentiment is in reasonable nick because we've got vaccines and easy money," said Societe Generale strategist Kit Juckes.
This is a preview of our pop culture newsletter The Daily Beast’s Obsessed, written by senior entertainment reporter Kevin Fallon. To receive the full newsletter in your inbox each week, sign up for it here.This week:As tryptophan and pinot grigio continue to course through my body as I nurse this Thanksgiving hangover and trudge on through pandemic life, The Daily Beast’s entertainment and culture staff take a beat to remember that not everything this year has been awful. I asked them to tell me what random bits of pop culture from this tough year they’ve been grateful for. Me? I’m thankful for them...and for the Real Housewives of the Potomac.The Reality-TV Perfection of The Real Housewives of PotomacNo TV comedy is as funny. No scripted drama is as intense. There are no sitcom characters more deft at delivering one-liners, no long-running series more skilled at staging cliffhangers, and no reality series with a better understanding of the balance between indulgent distraction and meaningful engagement with the real world. The women of The Real Housewives of Potomac discuss infidelity, sex, and the work that goes into relationships with more candor than any of their Bravo brethren. They’re goofy-as-hell and an addictingly good time; any given episode forces an instant smile. And when a physical “altercation” between two cast members made its way not only into tabloids, but into actual court, the series didn’t just exploit it for familiar drama. It centered it into a fascinating conversation about friendship, trust, anxiety, and, most importantly, race and what it means to be a Black woman in the public eye. The best hour of every week these last few months is spent with these women.\- Kevin Fallon, senior entertainment reporterThe Best Short Film of 2020 Is Anthony Hopkins Losing It in QuarFriends, I am writing this to you from the past. This newsletter will not post for days, and yet I can say with certainty that when it does I will still be just as transfixed as I am now. On Tuesday, Anthony Hopkins posted a seven-second clip of himself lying in bed and absolutely losing it. “Day 253 in quarantine,” he wrote. “I’m beginning to feel its side effects. What do you think?” His eyes dart around, staring into a distant void as dejected cackles tumble out of his gaping, contorted mouth. The vibe? Manic, yes. Unsettling, for sure. Painfully relatable, of course. But also: talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular, never the same, totally unique… and complementary to some fava beans and a nice chianti. And “they” worried the pandemic would stifle art? Pffft. Give this man another Oscar!\- Laura Bradley, entertainment writerI Could Watch 100 More Hours of How to With John WilsonSix weeks ago, I began hearing from friends and loved ones around the country that I needed to start watching a bizarre new HBO show called How To With John Wilson. Thankfully, I listened.The show, which is executive produced by Nathan for You creator and star Nathan Fielder, is almost impossible to explain. But once you start watching this New York-based filmmaker’s deceivingly elaborate tutorials like “How to Make Small Talk” and “How to Cover Your Furniture” chances are you won’t want to stop. The fact that only six half-hour episodes exist is downright criminal. I became so obsessed with this show, in fact, that I convinced John Wilson himself to reveal everything about it to me in a fascinating conversation that you can hear now on The Last Laugh podcast.\- Matt Wilstein, senior writerGod Save the (Real) Queen: Emma CorrinA number of pop-culture offerings have helped keep me sane during this absolute dumpster fire of a year, from the real estate porn (and next-level shade) of Selling Sunset and cult insanity of Seduced: Inside the NXIVM Cult to the charm and tranquility of The Great British Bake Off (although JusticeForHermine). But the only thing I’ve been able to focus on of late is Emma Corrin’s ethereal and masterful turn as Princess Diana on Season 4 of The Crown. That incredible “Aberfan” episode notwithstanding, I found the third season of the regal Netflix series to be incredibly disjointed and disappointing, with its disruptive Helena Bonham Carter interludes and, more than anything, a miscast Olivia Colman as Queen Elizabeth II. Colman’s downcast eyes have always telegraphed worry and injury, and thus elicited our sympathy, so it was an odd choice to cast her as an icy, out of touch, and emotionally detached sovereign. So thank goodness for Corrin, who’s managed to breathe life into the show, so vividly capturing the warmth and zest and anguish and torment of Diana, a woman cruelly chewed up and spit out by the monarchy machine.\- Marlow Stern, senior entertainment editorThe Tried-and-True Comfort of Prisoner: Cell Block HTime on one’s hands means a return to long-running shows of one’s past, and the warm glow of nostalgic familiarity. Knots Landing and Sons and Daughters (beat episode 868 for a series of end-of-season cliffhangers!) remain two all-time favorites of this author. But there is no soap opera like Prisoner: Cell Block H. Made between 1979 and 1986, this batshit, cheaply made (and it shows) Australian serial set in a women’s prison featured fights, fires, hangings, terrorist invasions, psychics, psychopaths, superior villains (like Nola McKenzie), and a series of “top dogs” like Bea Smith, Myra Desmond, and Rita “the Beater” Connors who tried as they might to dethrone the nastiest prison warder known to the penal system, Joan “the Freak” Ferguson. Utterly lacking in anything resembling political correctness and totally bananas, its 692 episodes are the perfect escape, if you can find them and certain scenes online. And you get a chart-topping theme song too, Lynne Hamilton’s “On the Inside.”\- Tim Teeman, senior editorThe Steady Hand of Spectrum NY1News station NY1 is a beacon, a voice of the city and a voice for its population. Its presenters get how the strangenesses of this time, and the beats of every day in New York City, can vary wildly. As they bring us the news—and the “weather on the 1s”—they speak with that knowledge. The reporters and anchors are resolutely centered on the city and its communities, and, from granular coverage of local politics to excellent ports like “In the Papers,” whatever other hell is happening, there is NY1, plugging away, telling New Yorkers how it is. I hope NYC isn’t alone, and if you’re not in New York, you too have a station like it. Everywhere in the country should have a NY1.\- Tim Teeman, senior editorThe Return of The Young and the RestlessI wonder if more people have returned to watching daytime soaps seeing as so many are working from home. Whatever, Y&R and the others are doing an amazing job, having been absent and now returned to our screens, somehow pumping out five episodes a week yet again. Social distancing and stringent on-set behavioral guidelines mean that the scenes look different. But canny camera angles have been figured out, and there is always the fun now of watching any kissing or sex scenes, and how—at a moment of implied intimacy—actors kind of leap towards one another as the screen fades to black. Adam Newman is back to being diabolical, good girl Faith is taking a trip to the dark side, and Kyle often has his shirt off. So we’re happy. One plea to the producers: more Judith Chapman, please.\- Tim Teeman, senior editorPut Some Respect on Janet Hubert’s Name!Like lots of you, I’ve turned to comfort shows of the past to cope with these long months of instability. This past summer, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air (streaming on HBO Max) became that respite for me. Its early episodes could be remarkable for how nimbly and honestly they navigated topics like racism, class, the white gaze, and respectability politics—stunning you into awed silence one minute, busting you up the next. (There were also way too many fat jokes and sexist tropes. This was the ’90s.)Mostly though, those first three seasons are an exercise in falling in love with the original Aunt Vivian, played by Janet Hubert. As regally graceful as she was warm and totally hilarious, Hubert often played the straight woman in a mansion full of narcissists. That means it was her expressions—of frantically subdued desperation, of disbelief, of thinly-stretched goodwill; the looks of a woman appealing to reason in a madhouse—that often sealed the jokes which landed the hardest. Before her time on the show (and her career) were cut short by an arrogant young rising star named Will Smith, Hubert delivered moments of spectacle no other performer on the show could match. Case in point: Aunt Viv’s barn-burning, impromptu rendition of Tina Turner’s “Proud Mary” inside a shopping mall. (A close second: her dazzling, defiant dance class kiss-off.) The woman could belt to the skies, move like a pop star, soothe your broken heart and make you laugh; Fresh Prince was lucky to have her.The bracing honesty of this past month’s Fresh Prince reunion has directed renewed, deserved attention to Hubert’s talents and to the eagerness with which Hollywood (still) brands women of color who stand up for themselves as “difficult.” I owe her several precious minutes of joy in an otherwise miserably chaotic summer, so I’m psyched—and thankful—to see this undersung actress’s overdue vindication. Love you, Aunt Viv.\- Melissa Leon, entertainment editorRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.
