Caucus chaos, Bloomberg's cash splash and Trump's acquittal

Caucus chaos, Bloomberg’s cash splash and Trump’s acquittal: what does it mean for American foreign policy? A surreal week in US politics, with a huge debacle counting votes at the Iowa caucus to select a Democratic presidential candidate. But was the strongest candidate even on the ballot? Also, Trump delivers an upbeat State of the Union on the eve of the vote of his impeachment acquittal. Amidst all this drama, what do the tea leaves say about the future shape of US foreign policy? And, UK MP Tom Tugendhat on post- Brexit diplomacy and Huawei: has the UK let the fox into the hen house? Last week, Boris Johnson decided to grant Huawei limited access to the UK’s 5G network. Australia and the US vociferously opposed the decision, arguing it threatens not only Britain’s national security, but also the integrity of the Five Eyes intelligence sharing agreement. Are their fears justified? Or is everyone getting just a little paranoid?

Has China lost Taiwan?; The man who mapped the world

Has China lost Taiwan? We discuss the stunning election win of Tsai Ing-wen in Taiwan earlier this month. Has China lost Taiwan for good? Or does the election just make military action more likely?

China and the US- Should Australia choose trade or security?

Australia enjoys the best of both worlds- free trade with China and a strong alliance with the US. How much longer can it last? US Secretary of State says Australia can either 'sell your soul for a pile of soybeans, or you can protect your people.' Could this kind of rhetoric widen the gap between two of the most powerful nations in the world, forcing Australia to 'choose a side'? Kevin Rudd, former prime minister of Australia and president of the Asia Society in New York. John Mearsheimer, professor of political science at the University of Chicago and author of The Tragedy of Great Power Politics

Also Like most countries, Australia has a growing population of homeless citizens. Are we looking in all the wrong places for answers?
