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.

[Edit: Actually, it’s possible that you’ve never gotten an email from me. 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. If you’d like to get articles like this in your inbox, totally free, about once a week or two, give me your email address.]
This week: HK regulators push banks, manufacturing webinars, Foreigners marrying ugly Chinese, and more!

While video blogging, I interviewed a homeless woman living in Kowloon Park, It was tragic, but she was so upbeat and positive. Inspired me to base the video blog about appreciating what we have and keep on pushing forward.
