Editors note for January 17, 2020

Dear Access member,

We will be taking Monday, January 20, off for Martin Luther King Jr. Day. We’ll be back in your inbox on Tuesday.

In New York on January 21? Please come to our partner event: Chinese Investment Projects in Emerging Markets: Examining Trends in Latin America. Access members use the code ACCESSLA to get free tickets.


Our word of the day is birth rate (人口出生率 rénkǒu chūshēnglǜ).
