    Xi Jinping Demands Media Integration

    The Communist Party has elevated its theme of “media integration” to the highest possible level: top leader Xi Jinping himself.

Although top-down calls for media integration have so far had little effect on VOD companies, in...

    Yirendai: Strategic Retreat

    Yirendai ranks among China’s top companies in the troubled industry of online peer-to-peer lending, or P2P. Its platform puts together individual borrowers and lenders, and charges high fees.

    Tencent Games: Culture Industry Under Pressure

    The Chinese government in March 2018 stopped approving new online games. The cessation hurts Tencent Holdings (“Tencent”), which earns 37% of its revenue from games. A government restructuring that has clogged the approval pipeline is widely misunderstood. It is part of the Communist Party’s tightening grip on the audio-visual industry, including games. Game approvals will resume when the current phase of grip-tightening is complete, which is...

    The world’s biggest maker of battery-powered vehicles, BYD, faces a tricky transition.

Beijing is curtailing subsidies for buyers in favor of incentives to boost supply. If Beijing’s scheme succeeds, BYD will almost certainly benefit. If not, then BYD will face a setback just as pressure from other EV makers grows. Meanwhile,...
