second-biggest economy these days, 7000 miles away in china. what is a state of the chinese economy? how worried are some people about what might happen? >> there were some worries about the risks as china decelerated that there would be a hard landing. those worries have eased a bit. there has been some monetary loosening. the bigger story in china is that the country is at the end of an era of 10% growth aced on limitless cheap labor. they're making a big change that will involve slower growth and some pain. >> the tensions between u.s. and china are not economic, they are more security. >> absolutely. they're not issues from the past, human rights, the currency, it is really the story of a more prosperous china beginning to flex its muscles in the seas just off its coast. >> that of course involves the whole region. they do not want us in the south china sea. >> it is a little bit of a replay of the monroe doctrine. the 19th-century approach to becoming a global power and pushing out and getting some space. the chinese are doing the same. >> thank you david. let me turn to margar
