Comfort women and the struggle for reparations
Lucy Hornby of the Financial Times recounts the post-war history of the survivors of a wartime atrocity.
This week on Sinica, we are delighted to be joined by Lucy Hornby, China correspondent for the Financial Times, and author of this phenomenal piece on China’s last surviving Chinese comfort women and their longstanding — and often futile — attempts to seek reparations in both China and Japan. Join us today as we talk about this piece, and also other stories of reparations and post-war politics that may leave you, like us, somewhat less cynical going out than coming in.
Joining Kaiser Kuo, Jeremy Goldkorn and David Moser in the studio today to talk about the Chinese economy and its recent tailspin is none other than Tom Orlik, an economist at Bloomberg and author of the book "Understanding China's Economic Indicators." Tom has years of experience writing about China and joins to share his thoughts on what parts of the economy are doing decently and where the real problems lie.
