China: Slowing Growth

China posted GDP growth of 7.3% for the July-September quarter, the slowest in 5-and-a-half years. Ronald Wan, Managing Director at China Merchant Securities, gives us his take on the state of the economy. We also talk to Ke Long, Senior Fellow at Fujitsu Research Institute. He explains what's motivating a price-fixing crackdown that's resulted in huge fines for a string of foreign companies.



South Korea: Tax Tonic

South Korea's large corporations are sitting on billions of dollars of cash reserves. With the economy showing signs of sputtering, the government is planning to levy a tax on these retained earnings. The aim is to spur growth by encouraging more investment, wage rises and dividend payouts. But the bosses at Samsung, Hyundai and other pillars of industry are not impressed. Kim Chanju reports from Seoul.
