Foreign Markets and the U.S. Economy [electronic resource]

With four out of five wide-bodies leaving the U.S. carrying cargo to the Pacific Rim, America is inextricably tied to Asian economies. Complicating this is the ability of investors to nimbly outmaneuver politicians by moving large sums of money across borders with a simple click of the mouse. In this program, ABC News anchor Ted Koppel and correspondent David Turecamo assess the prognosis of an ailing Korea as it recovers from its bout of the "Asian flu," undergoing transfusions of capital from Salomon Smith Barney and the IMF.
