Long-time followers of this blog may have noted that I don't post as often as I did during 2009, my first year of blogging. There are a couple of reasons for this.
First, once I set about writing my dissertation in 2010, I would spend entire days writing, so it became difficult also to take the time to write blog posts. Now that I am working, I still find it hard to post more than 2-3 times a month, but I will continue to post here when I identify issues that deserve more analysis than is provided in the mainstream media.
Secondly, my increased use of Facebook allows me to make shorter commentaries on news stories that don't necessarily merit a longer blog post. If this is something that also interests you, please "like" the Facebook page for my book, Designated Drivers, which you can find here.*
On that page I comment mostly on China's auto industry, but also on general business/government issues in China. Also, please feel free to jump in and comment as well, either here or on the Facebook page. This is all about making each other smarter, so I welcome comments and criticism.
* Sorry, but I really hate the term "like" that Facebook insists on using. If you prefer, think of it as "following" instead. You can be interested in what I have to say without necessarily liking it. :)
