U.S-China MOOC Cooperation: Toward Educational Advancement

In the 1970s, the famous educator Ivan Lllich mentioned three objectives for a good education: first, education should offer accessible resources to people who wish to learn. Second, it should match people with knowledge to those in need of their knowledge, and lastly, it should create avenues for people to raise questions in public debate. Unfortunately, even the world’s two largest economies currently struggle to achieve all three of these objectives. In the United States, for example, we…

TIFA, TPP, Pork, and the Future of U.S.-Taiwan Trade

Following the 2007 dispute between the United States and Taiwan over the import of American beef products, U.S. pork products have now become the major issue coming between U.S.-Taiwan relations. Only three years ago Taiwan folded and traded American beef for U.S. visa-free entry. Now it seems that Taiwan may have to trade again: protection of its pork industry for membership in the American-led Trans-Pacific Partnership.

We cannot proceed with the issue of pork imports without…

Common Market Integration in Asia -Taiwan’s Response and the Role of the U.S.

International politics is like a multidimensional chess game played by several players, and globalization, an unseen force, keeps squeezing the table, and shapes it into smaller one. In one dimension, players may struggle for dominance, or players may pursue profit in a separate dimension. In reality, the game is not so simple, for each player is forced to play a little bit of both simultaneously.

The flow of capital has become a dominant force shaping the world in the…
