Why Email and Cash Are Dead in China
China's young, digitally savvy population takes to new apps quickly in a super-charged, highly competitive marketplace. China has the world's largest number of mobile phone, payment and e-commerce users, with many innovative apps that serve consumer lifestyles such as superapp Meituan with its all-in-one multi-functions, and messaging and payments app WeChat,
Email and cash are dead in China, as I write in my new book:  Tech Titans of China. It helped that China skipped right over the PC era and went straight to mobile.
The Chinese digital universe is decidedly more social too than in the West. Read Forbes: Digitally Alive

China's BAT Clash While A New "B" Arises
China's original tech titans, Baidu, Alibaba and Tencent or the BAT, jockey for leadership in mobile payments, AI and e-commerce while a new "B" (ByteDance) arises to shake up the order. ByteDance may be the first major global tech contender from China with its AI-powered mobile apps for digital entertainment and news.

VIEWPOINT
Trump's trade war is not so easy to win after all, write George Koo in Asia Times. Trump is getting visibly frustrated that China is no longer acting like the patsy he had been expecting. But it's probably not his fault that he thought negotiating with China was going to be a piece of cake.
