Nearly three years after the United Kingdom voted by per

The population of college graduates is projected to reach a record high this year, turning an

already tough job market into a pressure cooker and intensifying the scramble for talent nationwide.

use of their high cost of living and greater peer pressure in the job market. And so the graduates are looking elsewhere.

The trend is changing the employment landscape in China, but it’s good news for sec

ond- and third-tier cities. The mega cities’ loss could be their gain in the brain drain game.

Moreover, Washington has forbidden US companie

?to sell chips to ZTE, a Chinese multinational telecommunications equipment and

systems company, even after imposing huge fines on the company. By so doing, the US has act

S President Donald Trump issued an executive order on Wednesd

ay in which he declared a national economic emergency and banned the technology and

services of “foreign adversaries” deemed to pose “unacceptable risks” to US national security.

The US intention is so obvious that media outlets around the world have without exception interpr

eted this as targeting Huawei, by excluding the Chinese telecommunications giant from US networks.

Washington has repeatedly claimed that Huawei’s equipment poses a security threat, but for all the sound and fury, it sign
