We touch on the situation in the far east, starting with the enterprise bankruptcy law in People’s Republic of China. The West African health crisis is put into the context of World Bank’s uncommitted pledges and the global drug industry. A guest calls in to relate a deeply personal story about her own mother’s bankruptcy, succumbing to the pressures of small-scale farming and relationships.

We conclude with a word on the value of silence before discharge of Chapter 7 personal liquidation bankruptcy.
