Episode 18: Merging Tudou and Youku; Has the RMB hit bottom? Interest rate reform through sketchy wealth management products

Pete, Ana and Chris get together again to chat about the hot topics of the week. Pete and Ana consider whether the Youku-Tudou merger will add value. Chris discusses the decision to widen the currency trading band and why the decision to let Japan buy Chinese bonds is more significant. Then all three wade into the topic of Chinese wealth management products – are they a pyramid scheme? A weird way to liberalize interest rates? Both?
