Some of My Recent Commentaries

 

As some readers have noticed, I have not posted at Forbes.com lately. I hope to be back soon and, in the meantime, I thought it might be useful to list here some of my more important Forbes commentaries. If you click through on the headings below (and hit “CONTINUE TO ARTICLE” on the Forbes landing page), you can get to the articles concerned. Most of  them focus on international trade or American decline or both. For my first item, however, I chose something different — partly because it is of more general interest and partly because the response to it was particularly memorable. Not the least aspect of that was response was that Mayer Brown dropped the lawsuit like a hot brick. Another aspect was that Yoshiko Sakurai, a veteran Japanese broadcaster, was moved to describe it as “in extremely poor taste.” See whether you agree!
