There are three broad issues underlying the proposed Economic Regulation of Transport Bill, 2020, that the Free Market Foundation regards as problematic.
The US-China tech innovation race is challenging the laissez-faire economic model. State interventionism, techno-nationalism, and US tech funding initiatives are increasing. This paper outlines the implications for markets, academia, research organizations, and governments of the US-China competition to achieve innovation advantage.
Dueling diplomatic trips in Europe this summer by United States Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and China’s Foreign Minister Wang Yi sought to sway the European Union’s stance on the China-U.S. rivalry. Among other goals, Pompeo would like to convince more countries to pledge not to use parts made by Huawei and ZTE in their 5G infrastructure—allegedly to limit the Chinese government’s ability to spy on communications there—while Wang hopes to keep the EU from shutting itself off from Chinese 5G companies.
Building international alliances is the only way if the US wants to modify China’s behavior either in the economic or geopolitical sphere. This paper examines the appropriateness of multilateral and plurilateral approaches to a geo-economic policy aimed at China’s current regime.

No world leader could have welcomed the global coronavirus pandemic more than embattled Chilean President Sebastian Pinera, for whom the crisis was, ironically, a lifeline amid political turmoil. Since October 2019, Chile has been rocked by enormous protests of citizens demanding a new constitution. Those protests paralyzed the economy and put President Pinera’s right-wing coalition in the vexing position of acceding to a constitutional plebiscite while also opposing the constitution’s replacement. The onset of the Covid-19 pandemic offered him an opportunity to flex his technocratic and managerial skills, demonstrate leadership, and distract from the unrest.
Responding to techno-nationalism need not be a binary choice between decoupling and engagement with China. Global IP-protective strategies can also help remedy the IP theft concerns underlying US-China trade tensions. More practical approaches that incorporate IP strategies can help build stable, durable, and resilient supply chains.
