Trade war?

Mitt Romney, struggling in the polls, has been attacking Chinese trade practices. He says that on day one of a Romney presidency he would declare China a currency manipulator.

Justin Rowlatt debates trade tactics with two experts: Alan Tonelson of the US Business and Industry Council which represents 2,000 smaller businesses and Andy Roth of the Club for Growth, a conservative group with free-market views.

Plus, we'll be looking at how the internet is creating new opportunities to profit from your home with Brian Chesky, the CEO of AirBnB, and asking why anyone bothers to like or dislike the corporate brands who seek approval on social networking sites.
