Editor’s note for Friday, February 21, 2020

Dear Access member,

Will the battle over Huawei kill globalization? In a new piece for SupChina, Paul Triolo and Kevin Allison of Eurasia Group describe the possible unintended consequences of nationalistic tech policies in both China and the U.S.

Our word of the day is the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (德国基督教民主联盟 déguó jīdūjiào mínzhǔ liánméng).
