Chinese Nuclear Stockpile Clouds Prospects for U.S.-Russia Deal
(Bloomberg) -- A key hurdle to extending a landmark nuclear treaty between the U.S. and Russia isn't Donald Trump or Vladimir Putin. It's China.The New START treaty, the last major arms control accord between the world's two nuclear superpowers, is set to expire in early 2021. Like another key treaty covering intermediate-range nuclear missiles, which collapsed this year after the U.S. quit that accord, Trump administration officials say the agreement may not be worth extending if China isn't brought into the fold.A failure to renew or extend the accord would mark the effective end of decades of agreements aimed at limiting the proliferation of nuclear weapons. Experts say it would also send a worrisome signal to other nations -- from Saudi Arabia to North Korea -- already pursuing or seeking to pursue nuclear programs.U.S. Defense Secretary Mark Esper said in August that the U.S. should consider "multi-lateralizing" the agreement. "If we really want to go after avoiding an arms race, and capture these systems, we should multi-lateralize it."Yet while the U.S. believes China will double its nuclear stockpile over the next decade, most arms control experts say it would be better for Washington and Moscow to settle on an extension of New START and worry about Beijing later."China doesn't have anything like the number of warheads the U.S. and Russia possess," Sam Nunn, a former Democratic senator from Georgia who co-chairs the Nuclear Threat Initiative, said in an interview. "We will at some point h

Think young people are hostile to capitalism now? Just wait for the next recession.
Though the panic that erupted during the summer months about a potential recession has cooled somewhat since, especially with the impeachment drama taking up most of our collective attention, signs of a looming economic downturn nevertheless remain. Job growth has slowed, levels of corporate and consumer debt have both reached all-time highs (surpassing levels last seen before the Great Recession), and the yield curve measuring the difference between 10-year and 3-month Treasury bond yields has been "inverted" for months. The economist Campbell Harvey, whose research showed that the inverted yield curve accurately predicted the last seven recessions, recently said that the indicator is "flashing code red.""It's not normal. It's something that foreshadows bad times," observed Campbell.A downturn is probably on the horizon, then, and while it may not be as devastating as the 2008 recession, which threatened to undo the entire financial system, there's a good chance that the public will respond with even more anger and intensity than 10 years ago. The last economic crisis contributed directly to the rise of populism over the following decade, but the next crisis will come squarely within the age of populism. It will also come in an age of extreme inequality and polarization, where capitalism is being questioned and critiqued more than in any other period since the end of the Cold War, especially by the generation that came of age during the Great Recession.The rise of populism wasn't just a response to the financial crisis and its painful consequences, th

U.S. Senators Defy China Threat, Press Ahead With Hong Kong Bill
(Bloomberg) -- Republican senators said Wednesday they want to move quickly on legislation to support pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong despite a threat of retaliation from China."Hong Kong is a high priority for me," said GOP Senator Jim Risch, chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee. "We're going to move on it as rapidly as we can."Senator Roy Blunt, a member of the Senate GOP leadership, said there haven't been any discussions about the timing for a vote on Hong Kong legislation similar to a measure that passed the House Tuesday. That bill would subject the city's special U.S. trading status to annual reviews and provides for sanctions against officials deemed responsible for undermining its "fundamental freedoms and autonomy."Following the House vote, China's foreign ministry issued a warning of unspecified "strong countermeasures" if the U.S. enacts that legislation and a package of other measures backing a pro-democracy movement that has rocked the former British colony for more than four months.There is broad backing in both parties in Congress to show support for the protesters and punish China for any crackdown. The White House declined to comment on whether President Donald Trump would sign the Hong Kong legislation, but there are enough votes in the House to override a veto and no significant opposition in the Senate.QuickTake: How the U.S. Congress Is Riling China on Hong KongThe next step will be up to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who'll set the schedule for a vote, and he'

How the Pixel 4 epitomizes Google's hardware gamble
Allow me to play Mr. Obvious for a moment: The Pixel 4 is a phone. That much is plainly apparent — right?

Hang on, though, because there's a twist: This week's Google event, at which the Pixel 4 was officially launched, wasn't really about phones. It wasn't about laptops, either. At its core, it wasn't about any hardware, in fact, despite being a "hardware event" in every outward sense.

Sure, the physical products may have taken center stage, but those gadgets are ultimately all just vessels for what Google's really trying to sell us. This week's event was actually all about the Google ecosystem — and, more specifically, the Google Assistant that serves as the nucleus of almost everything Google introduced.

Six-month-old Galaxy S10 bug lets strangers bypass your fingerprint scan, Samsung admits
The Galaxy S10 should be free of bugs by this point, but Samsung has admitted that a pretty big one is still out there. According to the company, some third-party screen protectors could allow anyone to bypass your in-display fingerprint authentication.

The bug was first reported by The Sun in the UK, who was tipped off by a reader. After Lisa Neilson, from Castleford, West Yorks, bought a cheap "gel cover" to protect her Galaxy S10's screen, she quickly learned that she could use any of her fingers to unlock it, despite only registering her right thumb. Her husband was also able to unlock her phone with an unregistered fingerprint. After calling Samsung, the company admitted it was a security bug and said it would investigate the problem.
