From bombers to Big Macs: Vietnam a lesson in reconciliation

Feb 23, 2019

HANOI, Vietnam — The Vietnamese capital once trembled as waves of American bombers unleashed their payloads, but when Kim Jong Un arrives here for his summit with President Donald Trump he won't find rancor toward a former enemy. Instead the North Korean leader will get a glimpse at the potential rewards of reconciliation. By the time the Vietnam War ended in 1975, tens of thousands of tons of explosives had been dropped on Hanoi and nearly two decades of fighting had killed 3 million Vietnamese and more than 58,000 Americans. Vietnam, though victorious, lay devastated by American firepower, with cities...

China bars millions from travel for 'social credit' offenses

Feb 23, 2019

BEIJING — Forgot to pay a fine in China? Then forget about buying an airline ticket.

In an annual report, it said 128 people were blocked from leaving China because they were behind on their taxes. The ruling party says penalties and rewards under "social credit" will improve order in a fast-changing society. Three...

China's new policy against gender bias meets fans, sceptics

Feb 23, 2019

BEIJING — China has announced new measures against gender discrimination in Chinese workplaces that forbid employers from asking potential female hires questions such as if they are married or have children. At some companies in China, the answers to these questions can be disqualifying. Other firms are explicit in their job postings that they are looking only for men. Many welcomed the government notice, published Thursday, which forbids companies and recruitment agencies from taking certain discriminatory actions against female employees and job candidates. But female workers and analysts alike were skeptical that such measures could be strictly enforced. "A notice...
