The USA and Hong Kong

Listen in pop-out player

Owen Bennett Jones meets Grover Norquist, Republican strategist and architect of a 'pledge' on tax policy which has tied many Senators and Representatives' hands in recent years. His hostility to federal tax raises has deep historical roots in the USA, but do the numbers really add up?

Plus, keen archive hound Vaudine England bemoans the loss of Hong Kong's public records.
