东亚人口老龄化 Ageing Population in East Asia

1:6. What does this ratio mean to you, personally?
Perhaps nothing in particular. Maybe the faculty-student ratio at a liberal arts college as featured in our fancy brochures? For many Chinese youth, this ratio represents the amount of individuals they will support in retirement (two parents and four grandparents.)
Under the One Child Policy, the single child of a typical Chinese family would need to take care of four grandparents and two parents. Although the Policy, originally aimed to reduce the country’s rapid population growth, is currently undergoing reform through the lo......

Jehangir is remembered in China
You smiled, just like a sunflower, so warm and positive, passing that spirit of yours to everyone who was lucky to come across you. You are a sunflower all along.
By Wu Nan
I first met you in April 2003 for a job interview. You had just started writing for the Boston Globe in Beijing and needed a researcher. You ended up hiring me despite the fact that I was just a newly graduated engineering student and my English was not fluent.
You said you chose me because of a few questions and answers.
“Jehangir, what does your name mean?&rdq......

残奥会在中国没有得到应有的关注

Mark Dreyer 03月11日

Writing about sports and China.

我敢打赌最近没多少人听说过冬季残奥会。其实如果大多数中国人知道残奥会这件事,才会让我大吃一惊。的确,近日来太多的新闻充斥各媒体的头条,但这些只不过是政府、媒体、记者们漠视残奥会的借口。
每届奥运会中,观众们都会因来自世界各国运动员多彩的故事而倍受鼓舞。诸如,巴基斯坦滑雪运动员在木板上训练,非洲游泳运动员距离最近的水域都有百里之遥,还有牙买加人的雪橇队。
同样残奥会上,每一位运动员身后都有一个与众不同的故事。无论他们是因伤还是因病残疾,每位运动员都挑战着常人眼中不可能完成的事情,他们以坚定的信念站在比赛的起跑线上。简而言之,残奥会向人们重新定义了体育的意义,世界上不会有比这更鼓舞人心的故......

NBA China predictions wide of the mark

Mark Dreyer 03月05日

Writing about sports and China.

Be careful what you read about the NBA in China.
Firstly, reports – by which, of course, I mean parroted press releases – out over the last few days suggest that LeTV is now the main broadcaster of NBA games in China.
LeTV stock chart 2010-present
For all the success of LeTV – it streams popular US shows like House of Cards, Black List, Rizzoli & Isles, 2 Broke Girls and many others via Internet TVs – CCTV remains the league’s primary broadcaster in China, and shows a game live most mornings on CCTV-5.
LeTV has instead become an o......

China’s Olympic report card

Mark Dreyer 02月26日

Writing about sports and China.

The Chinese delegation came away from Sochi with 3 gold medals, 4 silvers and 2 bronze, good for 12th in the medals table. China Sports Insider reviews the highs and lows…
Best performance
Zhang Hong, gold, 1,000 m speed skating. Starting in the 7th of 18 heats (when the top ranked skaters typically go at the end), Zhang started slowly but then turned on the burners. Her time ripped up the track record and no one even came close – her winning margin was bigger than the previous four finalscombined. Best of all, it was China’s first ever long track Ol......

Canadian coach: Korean cheats got away with it

Mark Dreyer 02月20日

Writing about sports and China.

Tuesday night saw the much hyped re-match between China and Korea in the women’s short track speed skating relay. In summary, they battled back and forth with the lead changing hands several times, before Korea crossed the line first, with China in second – then the Chinese team were deprived of their silver after a penalty for impeding another skater.
But it now emerges that the Koreans might have been doing exactly the same as the Chinese. 
According to well-known Canadian sports columnist Bruce Arthur, Canadian short track head coach Yves Hamelin (pictured ab......

China vs Korea Part 2: Bad blood revisited

Mark Dreyer 02月18日

Writing about sports and China.

Short track returns and the big one for China is the women’s 3,000 m relay final. China is the defending champion, but the Koreans will start as favorites having had the better form and quicker times in recent months. 
There is absolutely no love lost between these teams, especially after 2010 when China’s protest saw the Koreans penalized and the gold went to China. Chinese media have delighted in showing the reaction of the Korean coach (see below), both from that incident four years, and again last week when Korean skater Park Seung-hi was among those who crashed in th......

China takes another shot at aerial gold

Writing about sports and China.

Medal count
3G, 2S, 0B – 9th place overall
Day 9 review
Sunday February 16 was a quiet one for China with Chinese athletes well down the standings in figure skating and (long track) speed skating), and one curling game that went down to the wire.
Unfortunately, Liu Rui and his team were edged out 9-8 by Canada in the first extra end. China had been up 6-3 at one point, but had to score 2 points in the 10th end to keep the match alive. The result meant Canada (7-2) moved past China (6-2) in the standings and qualified for the play-off round, but all is n......

More gold medals on the way for China?

Mark Dreyer 02月14日

Writing about sports and China.

Well that was unexpected.
China won the 500 m women’s short track title for the fourth consecutive time – but no one would have guessed that Li Jianrou would be the one to do it – and then Zhang Hong (pictured above) won China’s first ever (long track) speed skating Olympic title in an even more stunning result. It was also the first time China has won two gold medals on the same day at a Winter Olympics.
Everything else pales by comparison, but elsewhere on Thursday February 13th, Han Tianyu and Wu Dajing made it into the quarterfinals of ......

China wins first two Olympic golds three hours apart

Mark Dreyer 02月14日

Writing about sports and China.

Barely three hours after winning its first gold in Sochi, China has another one. Zhang Hong surprised the field by posting a sensational time early in the women's 1000 m (long track) speed skating event, that was simply too good for the rest. Her winning time of 1:14.02, set in the 7th of 18 heats (the best skaters typically go towards the end), was a massive 0.67 ahead of second place.
She finished 4th in the 500 m event on Tuesday, and this was known to be her stronger event, but it's still a stunning result. It's also China's first Olympic title in speed skating (the of......

China’s Olympics: Day 4 review, Day 5 preview

Mark Dreyer 02月12日

Writing about sports and China.

Day 4 review
Tuesday February 11 was a solid – but ultimately disappointing – day for China. Speed skater Zhang Hong (pictured above) pulled out the performance of the day in the first run of the women’s 2 x 500 m. Her time of 37.58 was a new track record at the time, though two competitors later went faster, placing Zhang in bronze medal position at the half way point. Her second race was considerably slower at 37.99 for a 4th place finish – 0.1 seconds out of bronze – but she’ll have another chance in the 1,000 m.
Teammate Wang Beixing,......

How Japan plans to beat China at 乒乓球

Mark Dreyer 03月29日

Writing about sports and China.

In recent years, Japan and China have had a, shall we say, “strained” relationship, but the Japanese may have just pulled one over their rivals in the most unlikeliest of places – table tennis, currently China’s most watched sport.
China has won 24 of a possible 28 gold medals in Olympic ping pong history, adding another 15 silver and 8 bronze. Japan, in contrast, has won a solitary silver medal in seven attempts since the sport was first included in the Olympics in 1988.
But, in perhaps the most sneaky sporting move since Myanmar handpicked most of ......

   中国的特色经济在很多地方与西方经济貌似神离,外国现有的东西我们拿过来用,尤其是第三产业的商业模式,看上去很好,道理简单,然而本地化过程非常困难,容易走偏。首先,国情相距甚远,法律产权各种规章管理制度等国家行政的基础保护不到位,甚至制约发展空间;加之缺失发展过程,一年追人家二十年,求面不求里,在软硬件条件都不具备的情况下就会产生异性模式出来;再加上中国房地产物价偏高,很多地方已经追上世界发达国家水平,然而人均工资又还不及众多发展中国家,通货膨胀又起,消费力差,导致很多商业模式在初期起步阶段已经遇到准入瓶颈。

赫尔辛基购物续:感受Made in china

(赫尔辛基市中心一商场内,两名中国中年男人在服装售货区选购,不时地小声交流着。)
“老王,这里的衣服基本都是‘Made in china’,咱们Go to nextshop吧。”媒体访芬团(上海世博会芬兰馆组委会邀请并组织,2009年11月3日至11日)成员YW君对我说道。
我:“OK,怪不得一进这屋,我就有点儿‘两眼泪汪汪’的感觉。对了,赫尔辛基离北京有多远?”(以下对话交替进行,不再标示人称。)
“飞机上人家不是说了嘛:里程6135公里,飞行时间7小时25分钟。”
“哦,照理说离咱们北京也够远了,可感觉要买件非‘Made inchina’的衣服还挺费劲?”

郭杰群 在美国,地产开发商将出售资产所得在一定期限内进行类似房产的再投资可以享受一定的免税条款。这在我国当前还不具备,因此在一定程度上制约了地产商的能动性。

原文:REIT的海外发展及启示

Lypsey3543 “据个人了解,中国一线城市住宅投资收益率不会高于3,美国可以达到6。”作者这里说的应是租金收益率。首先,因(特大)人口增长加速,在新兴市场投资房产,主要看资本利得,动态租金收益要会延后实现,静态比较同期没有太大意义。其次,物业年均持有成本,纽约和中国一线城市不可比。第三,纽约和曼哈顿是两个概念。离开曼岛,租金中位数值完全是不是一个档次。而中国一线城市的租金上涨范围更大。因为仍处于成长期。总体而言,虽然在中美两国都投资的是房产,但从收益分布特征和波动率来说,完全可以看作是差别极大的两类资产。就如同高等级债券和蓝筹股票,横比收益没有意义,因为后者大幅超越。归根结底更可能是风险偏好异质性(含Demographic factors)和经济周期所处阶段决定了投资者更偏爱哪一类。
