One Country, Two DisneylandsSecrets of HK Disney-landfill
Bloomberg, 23-Oct-2019
Disney's Iger staying silent on HK protests After NBA's China row. Unmentioned: the fact that in HK, Disneyland is majority-owned by the HK Government and has an option on a huge chunk of idle land that could otherwise be used for housing. Incidentally, Bob Iger confuses air pollution with global warming by saying that he spoke out against Trump withdrawing the US from the Paris climate accords because “if people can’t breathe the air, they’re not going to theme parks.”
Hong Kong's not-so-free economy
The US-based Heritage Foundation has, as always, ranked HK as the freest economy in the World. For once, the Government doesn't accuse foreign forces of interfering in HK's internal affairs. But this rosy view is not held by those who take the time to study the domestic economy. Here are a few things that Heritage may have overlooked. (4-Feb-2018)

Penny's Bay Investment Co Ltd v Director of Lands
HK Court of Final Appeal, 26-Mar-2010
The former owner of the Cheoy Lee Shipyard site, still not satisified with the HK$1.51bn the government paid it to surrender its lease (and a pile of toxic mud which cost us $450m to clean up) to make way for HK Disneyland, presses its claim for compensation for the earlier loss of marine rights in 1995 when the Government gazetted reclamation for container terminals, abandoned in 2000 in favour of Disneyland. One good windfall deserves another, apparently.
Secrets of HK Disney-landfill
Legislators should this afternoon refuse to sanction the HK Disneyland financial restructuring unless they get full disclosure of the Government-controlled theme park's accounts, plus a release of 60 hectares of valuable public land which would otherwise stay under option to the park for 20 more years. This land should then be tendered for competing and synergistic leisure use. (10-Jul-2009)

Disneyland Through the Looking Glass
We look at the governance and financial aspects of Hong Kong International Theme Parks Ltd, better known as Hong Kong Disneyland. We call on the Government to publish the company's accounts, the related agreements, and the identities of the independent directors it said would be appointed. And we ask, was this a good use of 280 hectares of land, and why was there no tender for the project? (23-Sep-2005)
