Asia's Paradigm Shift
This week we turn our eyes to Asia as my friend Louis Gave of GaveKal gives us a very thought-provoking piece on the problems of investing in Asia, with a focus on China.

Right now, I feel like more needs to be done to improve the economy as we are heading towards a recession. It seems like there is uncertainty in the stock market, the credit crunch, the housing crunch, inabilities to get loans, and uncertainty about social security.
