  • General Motors' China sales rose 78% (!!) in July compared to last year.
  • My dad was a British spy, says the ABC's Mark Colvin.
  • Vladimir Putin goes all MacGyver. The SMH has the pictures.
  • North Korean Economy Watch has all the links you need on President Clinton's visit to Pyongyang.
  • Pacific Islands economic reform: Vanuatu shows the way.
  • Apparently, babyfaced politicians are seen as less competent, though this has little influence on how people vote. I'd like to see some similar research on facial hair, which is totally out of fashion among Australian pollies.
