Meat Scandal Taints Food Giants

A food scandal in China is causing major headaches for McDonald's and other global restaurant chains. A Shanghai supplier is accused of shipping old meat to Japan and other countries. We asked Mitsuo Ota, a business consultant who spent almost 10 years in China, for his thoughts on why the country is struggling to ensure food safety.



Energy Sources in the Spotlight

Japan's nuclear generators remain offline 3 years after the Fukushima accident. As the government moves to open the electricity market to competition, some new players are entering the field. We report on a sake maker that plans to power the local community with renewable sources. We also ask Scott Key, president of analytics and research firm IHS, for his views on the future of energy in Japan and the rest of Asia.
