Workers operate on a rubber glove assembly line at a factory in Zibo, Shandong Province May 28, 2012. China's industrial sector increasingly runs by machine, which might seem like the perfect answer to China's fast-rising labour costs - they don't ask for a raise, get injured or go on strike. According to Nomura, 28 percent of factory machines in China use numerical controls - one measure of automation. That may be far lower than Japan's 83 percent, but China is growing far faster than Japan did at a comparable stage of development, says Ge Wenjie, a machinery analyst with Nomura.

Companies in Italy, France and Germany, the three largest economies in the euro zone, are reacting to the bloc's debt emergency with varying degrees of nonchalance and alarm, mainly depending on how much their clients, and their own business models, are reliant on loans.Residential home builders and the companies that supply them are worried about how skyrocketing sovereign debt yields will affect mortgage rates and new home purchases. Retailers are cutting jobs and trying to trim other costs. But many also say the crisis could create business opportunities, spur a healthy industry shake-out and possibly even encourage better labour practices.

China, the world's most populated country with more that 1.34 billion people, introduced a law that limits most urban families to one child. The policy is meant to avoid over-population, but many demographers worry that a shrinking pool of young people won't be able to support and care for their elders.

A number of fast-food and cafe chains that are flocking to India would do well to take away lessons learned by established rivals such as McDonald's in navigating a market beset with obstacles. Industry experts say patience and flexibility in a country where dietary traditions rule may well define successful global restaurant brands in India. The stakes are high, with India's quick-service restaurant market worth $13 billion and growing roughly 25-30 percent a year, according to Euromonitor and market research firm RNCOS.
