“Food prompts emotional triggers, and eating is a gateway to the mind,” Yu said.

上海乌托邦品茶微信Experience-driven and new product trials are the defining characteristics of China’s post-1990 pop

ulation, whose desire for instant gratification is shaping up to be the new norm of consumption, said Mich

elle Huang, industry analyst of Food and Agribusiness Research at Rabobank’s Shanghai branch.上海乌托邦

“It’s not just quality that customers are paying attention to, it’s also product innovation an

d the speed of new rollouts,” she said. “Hence, it’s imperative for brands to populate menus with上海乌托邦品茶微信

original ingredients and ideas-and they need to do it quickly and frequently.”

Huang said unique storefront design and customer experience help stores gain cultural clout.

“It’s an investment. For instance, in the case of Heytea, a big chunk of t上海乌托邦

raffic still comes from online orders,” she said. “The online ordering app helps strea

mline business but it is the storytelling that gets the tea brand into people’s heads in the first place.”

Even established brands are investing in good stories in the hope of triggering emotional responses from customers. KFC上海乌托邦品茶微信

China recently added skewers and hotpot to their long list of Chinese menu items, wishing to cash in on the burge

oning midnight snacks market that even the government is encouraging in a bid to spur spending.

上海乌托邦Rather than simply placing ads promoting the new offering, KFC used social media to create a buzz. By soliciti

ng and sharing stories related to late-night treats, the firm attracted an emotional response from prospective diners.

“Your curated story needs to grab the attention of your ideal guests and activate their emo上海乌托邦品茶微信

Co-branding is another effective tool. Coffee chain S.Engine teamed up with e-comme上海乌托邦

The latest Chinese edit上海乌托邦 book, RN: The Memo

irs of Richard Nixon, was published in May this year to mark the 40th anniversary of th

e normalization of China-US ties. Different translated versions were also published in 1979 and 2001.上海乌托邦

The 1,166-page book, an intensely personal examination of his life and caree

上海乌托邦品茶微信r, sheds light on the Nixon administration’s behind-the-scenes decisions for dealing with a then-isolated China.

In an article published by Foreign Affairs magazine in October 1967, Nixon stressed the importa上海乌托邦

nce of Asia to the US and the world, concluding with a section on US policy toward China.

“For the short run, then, this means a policy of firm restraint, of no reward, of a creative counter-pressure designed to pers

上海乌托邦uade Peking (Beijing) that its interests can be served only by accepting the basic rules of in

ternational civility. For the long run, it means pulling China back into the world com

munity-but as a great and progressing nation, not as the epicenter of world revolution,” Nixon said.上海乌托邦

According to the book, shortly after taking office in 1969, Nixon urged Kissinger to explore the possi

bilities of rapprochement with the Chinese.上海乌托邦品茶微信

The book tells how China and the US sent signals to each other.

Nixon wrote, “The first serious public step in the China initiative h

上海乌托邦ad been taken in February 1970 when I sent the first Foreign Policy Report to Congress.”

The report called the Chinese “a great and vital people w

ho should not remain isolated from the international community”.上海乌托邦

“It is certainly in our interest, and in the interest of peace and stability in Asia and the w

orld, that we take what steps we can toward improved practical relations with Peking,” the report read.上海乌托邦品茶微信

Nixon said Chinese leaders clearly understood the significance of the language in the report, because two days l

ater, during a meeting in Warsaw, Poland, with US Ambassador Walter Stoessel, the C

hinese charge d’affaires, Lei Yang, suggested moving their previously unproductive meetings to Beijin上海乌托邦品茶微信

g. He also hinted that China would welcome a high-ranking US official as head of the delegation.

That all four have be上海乌托邦head their respective in

e institutions suggests the EU leaders have agreed to a compromise. This became appa

rent when the candidatures of Manfred Weber of the European People’s Party (a gr上海乌托邦品茶微信

上海乌托邦oup of Christian democratic and liberal-conservative parties), and Frans Timmermans of the Prog

ressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats were both rejected by some EU member states.

The European Council nominates the new European Commission president, who then has to win an absolute majority of vot上海乌托邦

es in the European Parliament to be elected to the post. In order to strengthen democracy and transparency, the EU ad

opted a lead-candidate-or Spitzenkandidaten-system in 2014, according to which the European Council has

上海乌托邦品茶微信to nominate a candidate from the largest group in the new EP to head the commission. Which means the system is desig

ned to ensure a candidate from the largest group in the EP would lead the commission.

The fact that von der Leyen’s candidacy was proposed by French Presid上海乌托邦

上海乌托邦ent Emmanuel Macron reflects the strong bond between France and Germany. Wh

ile German Chancellor Angela Merkel abstained from the vote on the commission president to avoid any con

flict of interest, countries such as Hungary and Poland supported von der Leyen because Weber and Timmermans hav上海乌托邦品茶微信

e made things difficult for the countries by giving negative assessments about them.

Still, the Spitzenkandidaten system is rather weak, because member states are still reluctant to transfer much power to the EU

上海乌托邦品茶微信institutions. In particular, the nomination of von der Leyen has broken the institutional balance between the Euro

pean Parliament and European Council, with the member states continuing to accumulate more power.

Von der Leyen’s nomination steered clear of the Spitzenkandidaten process,上海乌托邦

and she needed the support of different groups to be elected. Notably, outgoing Eur

opean Council President Donald Tusk called on the Group of Greens and the European Free Alliance to上海乌托邦品茶微信

support von der Leyen, as it has won 74 seats and become the fourth-largest group in the EP.

To avoid this dilem上海乌托邦 option for the Fed is to

consider the timing and degree of rate cuts after trade friction uncertainties are eased after the G20 summit, which ended last week.

Internally, US economic data that will be released in the middle of this month may cement the Fed’s determination to cut rates.上海乌托邦

Since 2011, whenever the actual US GDP growth rate exceeded the endogenous growth rate

by more than 1.5 percent, the actual figure underperformed the theoretical figure in th上海乌托邦

e next quarter. That’s because a significant departure from endogenous growth can hardly sustain.

上海乌托邦女神会所In the first quarter of this year, the actual growth rate outpaced the theoretical rate by 2.09 percent, the highest level since the fourth quarter

of 2011. If the historical pattern still works, this strong economic data could mean a sharp plunge in the second quarter.

上海乌托邦As the Fed said it will closely monitor the implications of incoming information for the economic outlo

ok, disappointing economic data to be released later this month may become the last straw for the Fed t

o act. Therefore, a clear rate cut sign and path may emerge at the FOMC meeting at the end of this month after the Fed digests the data.

Secondly, the market may have forecast the timing of rate cuts earlier than the Fed’s actual plan. The rate cut window is expected to open as late as in the fourth quarter.上海乌托邦女神会所

Before the latest FOMC meeting, traders saw a more than 70-percent chance that the first rate cut will take p

lace this month, as well as a 96-percent chance that at least one rate cut will take place by the end of September.

However, this estimation may excessively go ahead of the Fed’s actual moves. We expect that the上海乌托邦女神会所

rate cut window will open in the fourth quarter, with the first cut likely to come in December or January.

Looking back in history, the average time the Fed took to switch their rate policy – or the time interval between las上海乌托邦女神会所

t rate hike and first rate cut and vice versa – has been 11.7 months since 2000, even excluding the post-2008 prolonged low-rat

e period. Based on this pattern, the rate cut is unlikely to come this month but more likely to come after September.

Besides the historical pattern that probably continues, two new factors will also delay the timing of the first rate cut.

On the one hand, the current US policy rate is the lowest among those in all the periods when the

Fed planned to start a round of rate cuts, indicating the limited room for rate cut. This makes it nec

essary to use the limited rate cut capacity at an appropriate timing, which may occur later than the market expects as

the US growth pressure will not peak this year but in 2020, according to IMF estimates.
