Summary Juarez - The General Motors plant in Indiana has been transported to Juarez in Mexico where Mexicans are paid very low wages and don't enjoy the same conditions and safety standards as were available in Indiana. Thousands are attracted to the jobs available but life is a far cry from the American or Mexican dream that they came for. Thai gambling - Looks at a country in the midst of an economic collapse that can still find one billion dollars to bet on a sporting fixture. China one-child policy - looks at whether China's one child policy can survive now that the country is opening up economically and socially.
