    They went that Huawei: Britain’s crucial 5G call

    They went that Huawei: Britain’s crucial 5G call

    Facing pressure from both China and America on allowing Huawei into its next-generation network, Britain opted to fully appease neither—and that will test relationships in the post-Brexit era. Collecting tax in Africa is a fairly fraught business, but it’s too much potential revenue to ignore.

    The Economist Asks: Trapped in Iran

    The Economist Asks: Trapped in Iran

    In July 2019 Nicolas Pelham, The Economist's Middle East correspondent, received a rare journalist’s visa to visit Iran. But on the day he was due to fly home he was detained by intelligence officials from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, one of the country’s most powerful institutions. He was questioned repeatedly and forced to stay in the country for seven more weeks. Although unable to leave, he was later allowed to roam the city without a minder and found a paradoxical liberation in captivity. He gained a rare insight into life in Tehran, recording the sounds of the city as he explored. In this podcast, he tells Anne McElvoy his extraordinary story.


    Nicolas Pelham’s account, “Trapped in Iran”, is on the cover of 1843 magazine.

Our correspondent Nicolas Pelham recounts being detained in Iran last year. He was given a surprising amount of freedom—and made the most of it. And the shrinking American states paying people to move in.

Intelligente

Anche quando non sono d'accordo con l'opinione espressa, non manca mai una spiegazione intelligente, logica, e ben pensata e ragionata.
