It’s that uncomfortable question. If Beijing sneezes, do developing economies catch a cold? Well, this week it was more like a raging fever. China’s small rise in interest rates (among other factors) sent U.S. stocks tumbling 165 points on Tuesday, and the rest of the world followed suit. But why, you might ask, does the world care so much about China? Well, fear not, Quest and Ali are back, and this week’s Q&A will be another battle of business wills to find the right answer to that question. Tune in tonight, Thursday to watch and leave us ideas for next week’s Q & A in the comments section (right underneath here).

The sheer amount of chewing gum that ends up on the sidewalks and pavements is mind-boggling; and let’s be honest, frustrating, when it ends up stuck to the bottom of your shoe.
It's also an environmental menace. All of that countless gum you see stuck on the pavement takes weeks, months, even years to remove.
The days of spending hours scrubbing off someone else's chewed gum could soon be over. A water soluble, non-sticky version has been launched in the United States. A research team at the University of Bristol in England led by Professor Terrence Cosgrove developed the gum...
Q: It was gum on your shoe, too, that got you thinking about this?
Q: What prompted you to go the next stage?
Q: You still have a chewing experience, because, obviously, there would be no point in having chewing gum that didn't chew and taste like it. But what happens when it gets on clothes?
Q: What sort of interest have you received from the gum industry?
Q: Right, but quite often, it's a bit like a light bulb that lasts forever. Quite often, you know, the industry just doesn't want that to happen.
Quest:I'm looking forward to trying it!
