Chris Temple 0

(From the third regular issue of The National Investor for September, 2021) Investors just as much as politicians too often get caught up in often-stale, simplistic narratives on a subject--in this case, on a country, China--which prevents them for seeing and understanding FACTS underneath the scripted rhetoric.
