Hughesair (Inflection Point)

Retired physician and air taxi operator, science writer and part time assistant professor, these editorials cover a wide range of topics. Mostly non political, mostly true, I write more from experience than from research and more from science than convention. Subjects cover medicine, Alaska aviation, economics, technology and an occasional book review. The Floatplane book is out there. I am currently working on Hippocrates a History of Medicine and Globalism. Enjoy!

Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP)

 OMG, the US is left out? Economists will go nuts. However, inclusion, once again would level the standard of living between Asia and the US. Sure there are “filthy rich Asians,” but those are not Asian workers who remain poorly paid and poorly treated. New Zealand, Japan and Australia will have to adapt to a loss of strategic manufacturing and unemployment. We have been through that once and have only fractionally recovered. Don’t go back to a partnership with only a fractional vote and the same asymmetric predatory trade. 

RCEP includes: Malaysia, Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam, Brunei, New Zealand, Australia, Philippines, Myanmar Indonesia Laos Japan and China, with China dominating logistics and finance.
