Strong demand for Japan’s automakers 

At a time when Detroit’s "Big Three" are closing plants and slashing jobs to revive their ailing business, their Japanese counterparts are opening plants in Japan for the first time in decades. That’s because there’s strong demand for fuel-efficient cars such as the Toyota Yaris and Honda Fit — all of which are made in Japan — as well as luxury models and hybrids, most of which are made here.


The World Bank president is taking "full responsibility" for helping a close woman friend get transferred to a high-paying job. Wolfowitz said he sought advice of the bank’s Board of Directors on the transfer of bank employee Shaha Riza, to whom he has been romantically linked, shortly after he became president to avoid a conflict of interest.
