Warning! Bubble trouble is coming

As we may or may not notice, the global housing markets are flashing the kind of warnings that have been seen before the 2008 financial crisis. 🏠

Shake hands, we’re still friends

GLOBAL

What did they talk about when they met?

Biden has started his trip in Europe, from the G-7 summit to NATO. Normally, US presidents won’t travel to Europe and keep talking about China (per CNN) 😅, but it appears to be an exception this time – as he tried to convince his European allies to stand against China at NATO this time.

A new home for homecoming listing?

Following Hong Kong’s last year’s homecoming boom, overseas listed Southeast Asian companies are increasingly interested in a homecoming listing in a new home – Singapore.

US-CHINA WATCH

The fintech behind tech giants

Marqeta made a successful Nasdaq debut on Wednesday. Never heard of this name?… I am sure we are all familiar with some of its customers: Uber, Doordash, and JP Morgan.

Bill

The way to keep competitive

US’s answer to this question is: to increase its investment in tech. On Tuesday, the Senate overwhelmingly passed a bill to bolster US manufacturing and technology to compete with China. But on the other side, Biden’s hope of an infrastructure package remains stuck.

Internet

Is Google a tech company?

We have never doubted that, but the State of Ohio thinks it’s a “no”. In its latest lawsuit against Google, it instead claims that Google should be a utility company, joining gas, electricity, water suppliers…
