(Global Edition) From the BBC World Service ... China’s economic growth slowed to its lowest level since the depths of the financial crisis. But is it weak fundamentals or the ongoing trade dispute with the U.S. that’s hitting growth the most? Then, ahead of the midterms, there’s growing skepticism of social media and its role in reaching voters. But in Brazil, just nine days before a runoff presidential election, the frontrunner and his followers are embracing social platforms. Afterwards, in Indonesia, one entrepreneur is helping a new generation of street vendors embrace technology. Today's show is sponsored by GAIN Capital Group (gaincapital.com) and PayPal (paypal.com). (10/19/2018)
