A year of reading the world

James Baldwin with Marlon Brando on a civil rights march in 1963A while ago, I got a message from a reader in the US. In the wake of the recent widely reported police killings of unarmed African-Americans and the unrest that erupted in several cities as a result, she was keen to read something that would help increase her understanding of racial tensions in her home country. Had I encountered any such books on my literary adventures that I could recommend?

Conscious that this was very much not my area of expertise, I made a few tentative suggestions of things I hoped would at least be a starting point. Chief among them were Alex Haley’s reimagining of the experience of slavery, Roots, and the civil rights activist James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time.

嘗試為香港人經濟把脈~~

27 五月

說到現在香港的新聞話題,好像是政改問題,
但我發現現在香港人的關心重點還是這二年的經濟,為何??
因為現在的家長們正為子女找工作發愁,因現在二十歲左右的香港人正因為王子公主病而找不到正常工作~
而大部分工作中的人士正為可能的全球經濟危機而在賺錢~~
(所以不是民主黨所說的注意在民主方面)所以多數都在注意二年的經濟方面

另外,說到香港的傳統本土企業,,,,記得香港人以前有個想法是香港品牌等於香港制做,但現在要分家了~~
也但是其實這些品牌的植根於香港和外國人幾十年的信譽反而是增加的(不像中國成功幾年左右品牌一樣)
所以如果真的經營困難,不幹了,,也有很多大財團如歐洲,法國,南美洲等等的大企業想來香港發展,
可能變下經營手法也好,賣出賺了大錢也可以分給員工,部分啦~~

所以香港本土企業還是可以大賺的,不要太中國因素就可以,,,
不可為,其實是可為也~~

ps:這只是我最近在新聞上的處理,聽取人的意見所得的小小意見,,不能完全反映社會問題,只能作一般性參考!!!
