In India, Anti-China Anger Will Bring Out Modi's Hawkish Side
A surge of anti-China sentiment among Indian lawmakers, business leaders and voters will prompt Prime Minister Narendra Modi to take a more aggressive approach against Bejing in the wake of the two countries' recent border clash. This could include a variety of actions ranging from diplomatic moves to economic and trade measures, as well as a continued military build-up against China, which will only further ratchet up tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbors.

The Geopolitics of Postmodern Parenting
During the two months I recently spent away from work to fulfill my demographic duty, I found that most of my conversations with visitors followed the same pattern. The talk quickly turned from the standard cooing over my baby girl to an intensive debate over parental leave: how much time and flexibility to grant new parents in the workforce, how to reconcile career ambitions with the responsibilities of human procreation, how to compensate for the crazy cost of child care and how to boost birthrates. As a white-collar, taxpaying working mother in the United States, I had become one of the statistics I used to pore over as an analyst pondering the implications of aging and shrinking populations. But you don't have to be a parent -- or an analyst, for that matter -- to care about this stuff. In fact, a lot of the global angst today over stagnant economic

Saudi Arabia Arms Its Vision 2030 With an Investment Ministry
On Feb. 25, Saudi Arabia's King Salman issued eight royal orders designed to jump-start the country's Vision 2030 program after nearly four years of mixed results. The most notable of these orders included converting the General Investment Authority into a full Ministry of Investment and creating tourism and sports ministries. The former energy minister and Saudi Aramco CEO, Khalid al-Falih, will serve as the first investment minister. Al-Falih's appointment may indicate that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman realizes the greater pitfalls of chasing such big, high-profile announcements. It will thus be important to track whether Saudi Arabia starts winding down its pursuit of megaprojects at home and abroad, including the country's large investments into companies such as Uber and Tesla, which have been criticized as having more to do with prestige than profit.

U.S.: A Chipmaker's Patent Lawsuits Risk Upending the High-Tech Industry
Legal action taken by U.S.-based chipmaker GlobalFoundries has the potential to disrupt supply chains for manufacturers of a variety of consumer electronic devices, including heavy hitters such as Apple Inc. In multiple lawsuits filed Aug. 27 in the United States and Germany and in a complaint filed with the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC), GlobalFoundries accuses rival Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC) of infringing on its patents by using its protected methods and equipment to manufacture certain types of semiconductors. It is seeking an import ban of the chips made by TSMC outside the United States using those processes and of any devices containing those chips.

Trump Looks to Open Another Front in the Trade War With China
For much of August, the United States and China have followed a tit-for-tat pattern of tariffs as they wage their trade war, with Beijing answering the round of U.S. tariffs announced Aug. 1 by President Donald Trump with some of its own. But a bombshell announcement by Trump on Aug. 23 has the potential to change the rules of the game. With the tweet "American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China," Trump offered a glimpse of where he might take the trade fight next. Although Trump followed his stark warning only with an announcement of higher tariffs on Chinese goods, he later reiterated that the White House had the power under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act of 1977 to force U.S. companies to divest from China, keeping the option of an economic withdrawal on the table.

Congo: Why the Shutdown of One Cobalt Mine Matters
British-Swiss mining powerhouse Glencore has announced that it will shut down cobalt and copper production from its Mutanda mining operation in the Katanga province of the Democratic Republic of the Congo by the end of the year. The company expects the shutdown to last at least two years, although, after that amount of time, the benefits of restarting operations could be insufficient to justify a restart. In 2018, besides about 200,000 metric tons of copper, the mine produced just over 27,000 metric tons of cobalt -- around 20 percent of total global production of the strategic metal.

China: Beijing's Latest Trade War Salvo Takes Aim at Foreign Firms
The Chinese Ministry of Commerce on May 31 said China is creating a list of "unreliable entities" that would include foreign companies it considers damaging to the interests of Chinese firms. The list, akin to the U.S. Commerce Department's Entity List that enabled the United States to blacklist Huawei Technologies, would allow Chinese authorities to target foreign companies, organizations and individuals that they find either don't obey market rules or violate contracts, or have blocked or cut off Chinese companies from suppliers for noncommercial reasons. Neither the scope of the list nor specific measures that might be taken against those that land on it were disclosed, but the ministry said details will be announced "soon."

Will Rare Earths Be the Next Front in the U.S.-China Tech War?
The rise of the Chinese tech sector has helped power its rivalry with the United States. The effects of the recent White House moves to counter China's tech champions, including its most profitable foreign venture, Huawei Technologies, has already had some effects, including a move by Google parent Alphabet Inc. to halt some business with the telecommunications giant. One possible response for China would be to restrict or ban exports of the rare earth elements critical to high-tech applications. China's preeminence in the rare earths supply chain would make that a potent option; China has about a third of the world's reserves of the elements but controls a much larger portion of mining and refining operations. Rare earths are crucial for components of a variety of technologies.

In the Indian Elections, Voters Will Weigh Jobs Against Security
The defining event of the Indian political calendar is just weeks away. By May, over half a billion voters will choose 543 representatives to serve in India's lower house of parliament. The elections, which are the world's largest democratic exercise, will take place over several weeks, and the stakes are high: Narendra Modi, the most powerful Indian prime minister in a generation, is leading his incumbent Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) against a raft of opposition parties under the Indian National Congress (INC) banner, all unifying in a bid to dislodge him from power. In 2014, the BJP's victory marked the first single-party majority in nearly three decades. And now, the party is looking to set another precedent in Indian politics by achieving successive non-Congress majority governments. But aside from having the INC as its main opponent, the environment that handed the BJP its victory five years ago bears little resemblance

China's Economic Pain Will Power Southeast Asia's Gains
As the global trade and investment landscape continues to evolve, Southeast Asia is gaining momentum as a top destination for investors seeking lower-wage manufacturing labor, high returns on their capital and infrastructural investments, and opportunities to profit from the region's sizable and fast-growing domestic markets. U.S.-China trade frictions are set to increase the manufacturing investments into the region that already are underway. The surge of investment into the region will be shared unevenly and felt disproportionately. But in the short term, Southeast Asia's emerging economies must equally contend with supply chain disruptions caused by the U.S.-China trade war, an extended slowdown in the Chinese economy, weak global demand for China's manufactured goods and their individual internal structural issues.

Turkey’s Next Round of Elections Are Looking Down a Familiar Path
It’s hard to imagine the outcome of Turkey’s local elections, scheduled for March 31, generating any real suspense. The result again is likely to favor the governing Justice and Development Party (AKP) of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan despite the deepening economic crisis that has enveloped Turkey. Turkey’s political elites across party lines are fixated on the elections. While the AKP is seeking alluring candidates to maintain its control of large cities such as Istanbul and Ankara, opposition parties -- particularly the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) -- are squabbling over choosing their nominees for the multiple mayoralties that will be up for grabs next spring and are not focused on devising a grand strategy to unseat the AKP from local power. Parties and elites alike covet local offices because local government administration is extremely profitable for mayors and provincial/city council members who gain prime positions to authorize public procurements
