“AI will transform asset management,” but “the biggest challenge we face may not be developing powerful predictive AI-based investment models.” Rather, it will be “simply convincing investors not to trust their own judgment. More broadly, the winners and losers will be decided not by the current market position of a firm or even the size of its checkbook, but by its ability to overcome its anthropocentric prejudice and trust AI like it would trust a human being.”

“Another day, another embarrassing foreign policy circus in the nation’s capital that can only further erode trust in American leadership at home and abroad.” President Trump undercut Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, raising “doubts among world leaders about whether he represents the president’s true intentions.”  While Tillerson has his own faults, “those weaknesses are nothing compared to those of an inexperienced, self-absorbed, bombastic and impulsive president.”

“Clinton will, and should, use her acceptance speech to provide a vision of what she hopes to accomplish as president and to excoriate Trump for his extremism.” She must also “work hard to make voters trust her. She is a steady and serious candidate with a commanding grasp of the issues. Going beyond her usual perfunctory defensive responses is an important step toward winning voters to her side.”

“Beijing still believes money can buy the trust and soft power it craves, which explains the new $100 billion Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank it has sponsored. But as long as analysts don’t feel the Chinese government’s pronouncements are genuinely reliable, skepticism about the yuan will only grow.”

China’s ambassador to the U.S., who served as ambassador to Japan from 2007 to 2009, writes “Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s recent homage at the Yasukuni war shrine deeply disturbed people in China and much of Asia. The dispute surrounding his actions is about more than symbolism; it goes to the heart of his intentions for Japan’s future and his willingness to build an atmosphere of trust, respect and equality in East Asia.”

“America will not and should not stop spying. But a clearer focus and better oversight are needed to restore trust.”

The visit of China’s Premier Li Keqiang to India brought progress on trade agreements and a new goal to achieve $100 billion in bilateral trade during 2015. The visit helped restore relations, overwrought since territorial incursions, between the two nations which account for nearly two-fifths of global trade. “It will take more than a few trade deals to overcome the suspicion with which India regards its eastern neighbour… But deeper economic ties are a good place to start, as long as both sides play fair. The greater the trade, the better the chance that trust will follow in its wake.”
