“California is bringing E.U.-style privacy laws to the U.S.” This is “one more reason to reassess how you handle customer information.” Though burdensome “creating a meaningful privacy policy…can also be a golden opportunity to inspire customer trust.” Moreover, the California Consumer Privacy Act will “likely serve as a national model” so a thoroughgoing approach will leave your company better prepared for, if not fully compliant with, subsequent changes in other jurisdictions.

“The great deal maker has yet to make even a decent deal as president; he hasn’t negotiated anything on health care, immigration or infrastructure, and the trade negotiations with China may be a bust.” In Korea, Donald Trump’s “gut instincts” have resulted in a blunder that’s “worse than it looks: Kim Jong Un appears shrewd. China is stronger. And U.S. allies know not to trust Washington.”

“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.”
