For centuries, trade has been the centre point for economic growth and stability, with mutual benefits for all nations. No matter what we do throughout the day, ‘trade’ surrounds us,... More > whether we are driving a European car, watching a Japanese television set or wearing shoes made in China, trade is everywhere. ‘We’ definitely gain from free trade and trade liberalization, but we fail to define what is meant by ‘we’. With approximately 30% of the world living on less than $1.25 per day, the effects of free trade are not evenly distributed among poor and wealthy households, leaving the gap between rich and poor to increase at will. Economic policies cannot take every individuals situation into consideration and often harms the most vulnerable households in society in the hope that free market fundamentals will bring them out of poverty, leaving one unanswered question. How does trade liberalization effect individuals living in poverty?< Less

Twenty three of them were written in China during that period, the... More > others after returning to Australia, and on reflection. The latter poems are fictional narratives, designed to entertain the reader. I wanted to collect them together in one edition so they could be read as a whole, rather than being interspersed with other poems not about China. I had no intention of passing any sort of judgement while writing these, neither blame nor praise. I was merely an observer, a 'Yang Wei', (foreign devil) from the west, taking my first look at the east, and liking what I found. The Chinese culture captured my heart, despite the poverty I could see around me. Their generosity overwhelmed me, their work ethic, their ability to enjoy life despite their poor conditions, and their artistic culture in art, dance and music was inspiring. Dedicated to my students and friends in Zhong guo.< Less

They had decided to give me to a rich family who would in return give them a truck. However, at that time Brother was very attached to me. He cried a lot when he heard that my parents would give me away. My parents then decided to keep me no matter the difficulties they faced.< Less

“The Chinese people,” says one well-known sinologist, “are not prone to mythological invention.” “He who expects to find in Tibet,” says another writer, “the... More > poetical charm of Greek or Germanic mythology will be disappointed. There is a striking poverty of imagination in all the myths and legends. A great monotony pervades them all. Many of their stories, taken from the sacred texts, are quite puerile and insipid. It may be noted that the Chinese mythology labours under the same defect.” And then there comes the crushing judgment of an over-zealous Christian missionary sinologist: “There is no hierarchy of gods brought in to rule and inhabit the world they made, no conclave on Mount Olympus, nor judgment of the mortal soul by Osiris, no transfer of human love and hate, passions and hopes, to the powers above.< Less
