The "Long Hair of Stock Market" talked about Hong Kong

The link was posted in the message board before. It is about an interview with David Webb, a famous financial anaylst who has a nickname the "Long Hair of Stock Market" in local, by the International Herald Tribune last month. Webb described himself as "highly opinionated" and thanked to Hong Kong's rule of law and press freedom for giving him room to criticizing the establishment:

"I take reasonable precautions, but it would not have been possible to do this in Singapore." Then, laughing, he added, "And I'd probably be dead by now if I was doing this in Jakarta or Manila."
