  • The Heat: RCEP Trade Deal

    It’s called the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership or RCEP. It includes 10 ASEAN countries and five of its major trading partners: China, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand. Together, the fifteen countries aim to create a massive trading bloc covering a third of the world’s gross domestic product. Until recently, India was expected to sign onto the deal. But, Prime Minister Narendra Modi withdrew, saying the pact would hurt its farmers, businesses and consumers. With or without India, the deal is expected to be signed next year.

Saruhan Hatipoglu is CGTN’s Global Economics Analyst and the CEO of BERI. Steve Keen is a distinguished research fellow with University College London and author of “Debunking Economics.”

  • How Change Happens: Why Do Some Social Movements Succeed and Others Fail?

    What does (and doesn’t) work in building the better world we dream about? Why do some movements for social change succeed while others fizzle or even fail?
