BW Asia Stories Galore

Wow, I've never found so many stories on BusinessWeek's Asia Insider to be quite so interesting! At a time when the US and Europe are experiencing a serious cash crunch, it seems Asia is swimming in cash. That means we could see Asian companies invest more in the US, and that includes major investments by the Indians, including, fascinatingly, in old-world industries like steel (whoever said the US steel industry was dead?)

And now the big topic of discussion is if China can save the world. The Chinese economy is slowing, property prices are falling, stocks are down 60% and more bad news. But GDP is still expected to grow at over 7%, so that holds hope of a robust Chinese economy preventing a global slowdown?
