Investing Notes:

a.  China Is Nationalizing Its Tech Sector | Bloomberg.com"China's venture-capital sector is dominated not by traditional tech dealmakers but by the state: There are more than 1,000 government-owned VC firms in China, controlling more than $750 billion." 

"The Chinese internet is in the midst of one of the toughest content purification campaigns in years ... The latest target is Bytedance, a private firm worth more than $30 billion that is best known for its news, video and humor apps ... In response, Zhang’s ritual, abject groveling apology reads like something out of an earlier era"--Axios.com

Germany's (and the world's) 'China problem': German firms are most worried about the role of China's government and communist party in the Chinese economy. “The hope was that closer economic ties would lead to an opening. Today it is clear this was a false hope”--German government official.
