Matt Sheehan's Newsletter
Welcome to the eleventh edition of The Chinafornia Newsletter, your weekly digest of news connecting the Golden State and the Middle Kingdom.
This week’s must-reads:
1. How Trump’s changes to the H-1B visas will rattle Silicon Valley – and push more US-trained Chinese coders and entrepreneurs back to Beijing.
2. China’s Army of Global Homebuyers is Suddenly Short on Cash – a Bloomberg look at how currency controls appear to be really biting.
3. My Menu For Lunar New Year: Guilt, Confusion, With A Side Of Angst – an interesting radio bit+essay by Kat Chow of NPR Codeswitch on how immigrant children do/n’t take up traditions of their heritage.
The Chinafornia Newsletter is created by me, Matt Sheehan. I spent over five years in mainland China, including two as The Huffington Post’s first-ever China correspondent. I’m now back in my native California consulting on China-related projects and writing a book on Chinafornia.
You can read some of my best work on my own website: An Optimist’s Guide to China. Follow me on Twitter @mattsheehan88 and feel free to email me at mattsheehan88@gmail.com.
