Bird flu, a food crisis, natural disasters: how prepared can you be for a crisis. WSJ wealth editor Wei Gu gives some tips for contingency plans to deal with emergencies: cash, gold, accounts in different countries, backing up your data and having enough food for four weeks.
The China Weekly Hangout discussed on April 18 the current state of the bird flu in China, why we cannot call it bird flu, why surgeon masks are not protecting you and what China is doing better than during SARS, now ten years ago. Present are avian flu expert Harm Kiezebrink from Beijing, HKU lecturer Paul Fox from Hong Kong and CEIBS adjunct professor Richard Brubaker. Moderation by Fons Tuinstra, president of the China Speakers Bureau.
