"Olympic Market?" Maybe Not, But Welcome Anyway
The Beijing Olympic Games kicks off in four days, and last Friday's trading on the Shanghai Stock Exchange seemed to be celebrating prematurely. Is this the fable "Olympics Market" or just a bit of irrational exuberance? Or maybe a chance to scrape a little money out of the exchange before it continues its slide?

Taiwan Moves to Revive Its Stock Market, Mainland China Pays Lip Services
The government had earlier stepped in with reforms to steady the market but, as those measures proved ineffective, it has so far resisted the temptation to interfere this time.
