I have been doing a lot of work on the future of digital economy for various multinationals these last months.

The US just forced China to commit to full digital sovereignty

I’m in Vietnam right now and don’t have a lot of time to share my thoughts and a thorough analysis. I just want to pin that down for further reference: China has spent nearly two decades building a digital wall between itself and the rest of the world, a one-way barrier designed to keep out […]

Hema Market, the Full ‘Digital is Over’ Experience

For the last ten years I’ve been in China at least once a year. As such, there is no way I consider myself an expert with deep understanding of this market. No, what I have now is a long string of snapshots, flowing together in an accelerated vision of how this market is evolving.
