Dear Global Business Enthusiast,

Michael Michelini (@michelini) here. You’re getting this email because you requested my periodic thoughts on international business from Hong Kong.

Somebody might have just given you the link to this page, which is an online archive of an email that I sent to folks who had asked for it.

Hoverboard millionaires, HK Toy factory hacked, Dog Saved after falling off balcony, and more this week’s Global From Asia’s newsletter.

Some people got dates mixed up for our 2nd recording, it is next week – Tuesday Dec 15th at 7pm. I made a new events tab for these events and more for fast checking.

Lots of good info on Shenzhen and Hong Kong here:

Listen to this week's podcast

Episode 106 on the podcast – we get Julian Hosp on the show. He is full of energy and shares his story. He left pro basketball in Austria to go to med school. Then didn’t become a doctor after graduating med school – instead coming to Hong Kong.

On the blog, highlighting an infographic we released: How FATCA is hurting Americans abroad. Please help spread the awareness as so many people (Americans abroad included) have no idea what an effect this is having! Thanks to Content Blossom + Brandon King for help making it!
