Business Daily - Life's challenges
The three lives of Ping Fu: orphan, political prisoner, and now high-tech pioneer, and why the humble cup of coffee may be set to change forever.
We hear about the three lives of Ping Fu. Beginning life as an orphan, she became a Chinese political prisoner, then relaunched as a pioneer of the high-tech revolution. Today one of America's top business entrepreneurs and an advisor to President Obama, the founder of the 3D printing firm, Geomagic reveals her remarkable life story, and life-lessons. Plus we hear a report from Mumbai on why India street vendors are shouting louder than usual these days, and enjoying it while it lasts. Plus Peter Baker of the non-profit organisation, CABI, that advises farmers in the developing world, explains why climate change may be affecting the world's coffee crop, and why a cup of coffee may end up tasting rather different in the future.
