On North Korea, it's time for cool heads and hard diplomacy. There are three points of leverage for the Chinese:

- first, they could clamp down on North Korean coal exports to China, which currently provide the North Koreans with the bulk of their foreign exchange;
- second, China could use financial sanctions against the North;
- the third and most difficult option would be for China to...

To fix the problem of 1.6 billion people in the world without proper sanitation means unlocking domestic investment in those countries.

Ran into some more impressive young Aussies (and Kiwis too) overseas in my latest episode of #AussiesAbroad.

These guys are students at The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, a very famous business school.

I loved hearing how they got all the way over here in the US and what they plan to do in the future.

Syrian chemical weapons crisis hits the front page just as President Trump and President Xi Jinping sit down at Mar-a-Lago for the U.S.-China summit.
