Smiling and in saffron robes, Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama on Thursday brought a message of compassion and care for humanity to the free market mavens of a right-leaning Washington think tank.
Chinese President Xi Jinping was formally named head of a new national security body Friday, in a move that further strengthens his status as the most powerful Chinese leader in two decades.
China's new president, Xi Xinping, has discarded former leader Deng Xiaoping's cautious foreign policy of "bide our time, hide our capabilities," by mounting increasing military challenges to America's Asian allies and to U.S. leadership.
China's leaders finished a closely watched policy meeting Tuesday with a promise to give market forces a bigger role in the country's state-dominated economy but failed to produce dramatic reforms to overhaul a worn-out growth model.
Comprehensive "engagement" has been a cornerstone of U.S. policy toward China since the Nixon administration. But the bedrock of Beijing's U.S. policy is paranoia over what Chinese leaders believe is a "peaceful evolution" conspiracy designed to overthrow the communist dictatorship via the ideological and spiritual infiltration of China's society.
The Chinese version is no easier to read than the original, the loyal-minded translator assures, but James Joyce's "Finnegans Wake" has still sold out its initial run in China _ with the help of some big urban billboards.
Perhaps more than Westerners, the Chinese have a gambling streak.
At a time when China's economy and society are under considerable strain and the country is embroiled in increasingly tense border disputes with its neighbors, the relatively peaceful once-in-a-decade political transition in Beijing has helped deflect attention from the underlying turbulence in the Chinese system.
A new book by Ronald Coase, age 101, is an event in itself. Mr. Coase, the 1991 Nobel laureate in economics, revolutionized the field by challenging conventional wisdom regarding the nature of business firms and how so-called public goods can be provided. One of his main contributions is the concept of "transaction costs," which are the costs individuals incur in making an economic exchange.
North Korean farmers who have long been required to turn most of their crops over to the state now may be allowed to keep their surplus food to sell or barter in what could be the most significant economic change enacted by young leader Kim Jong-un since he came to power nine months ago.

China's military is making bold accusations that self-described "heroic" anti-American hawks are being purged and betrayed by China's CIA-controlled civilian leaders.
On May 7, South Korean customs authorities announced they had discovered 17,500 capsules made from the incinerated remains of human fetuses and infants being smuggled into the country from China for sale.
As more details seep around the Great Firewall that Beijing's masters once thought would suppress all dissident blogging and as contradictory explanations emanate from Party sources, the case of Bo Xilai and his wife becomes all too familiar.
The last time China's next president visited the United States, he bunked in the spare bedroom of a small-town Iowa home, replete with football wallpaper, a window's view of an old iron basketball hoop and "Star Wars" figurines on the dresser.
"There is a proposal in the United States now: to fight a world war without gun smoke," Deng stated. "Capitalism hopes to declare a final victory over socialism. In the past, it used weapons, including atomic bombs, hydrogen bombs, which was opposed by people of the world. But now it is engaged in the peaceful evolution."
"The United States, other Western countries, are engaged in a peaceful evolution targeting socialist countries," Deng said in 1990 in an article from his "Selected Works."
