Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan
achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F
rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.
The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open
ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.
This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl
e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.
The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso
n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.
It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi
t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all
of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V
alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.
Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft
er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo
bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.
It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to
retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o
ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.
Xi and his wif上海会所品茶微信g Liyuan, were greeted by Kim and
his wife, Ri Solju, at Pyongyang Sunan International Airport upon their arrival.
Under Chinese and DPRK national flags and large welcome banners, nearly 10,000 people

Following a grand welcoming ceremony complete with a 21-gun salute, Xi headed to the square of
the Kumsusan Palace of the Sun, where he became the first foreign leader to receive a salute at the hi

China, the world’s largest producer of rare earths, currently produces around 80 percent of the world’s supply of the metals.
The NDRC said in late May that China is willing to continue supplying rare
earth metals to global markets, but is opposed to those who use products made with Chi
nese rare earths to “suppress and dampen China’s development”.The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party
of China in October 2017 advocated that China would be developed into a modern socialist country that is prosp

onsider China’s resolve to develop itself into a prosperous and strong country as a matter of concern.
As tours to Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region have become increasingly popular among tourists from home and abroad, local
authorities have announced a plan recently to launch as many as 100 special trains for tourists from May to October.
The local railway authorities will step up cooperation with other part

The trains will provide easier access to both the southern and northern parts of Xinjia

Xi underlines building professional forces at key meeting on public security
President Xi Jinping urged the nation’s public security forces to fulfill their responsibilities and missions in the new era to cr
eate a safe and stable social environment that enables people to feel an even stronger sense of security.
Xi, also general secretary of the Communist Party of China Cent
ral Committee and chairman of the Central Military Commission, made the remark at a t
wo-day national conference on public security work, which concluded in Beijing on Wednesday.
He called for building highly professional public security forces that are loyal to the Pa

Under the new historical conditions, public security departments must
adhere to the overall national security outlook and a people-centered approach, Xi said.

But there is still a wide gap between the Chinese film industry and the Eu

spite being well made and highly rated by movie critics and viewers alike, fail at the box office.
