The latest from Bangkok, where anti-government protesters have vowed to bring the city to a standstill. And, Google pays more than $3 billion for a thermostat manufacturer. Does this mark the dawn of the smart home?

Also, behavioural economist professor Dan Ariely discusses why we lie to ourselves. The Economist's Asia Editor, Simon Long, on the upcoming elections in Indonesia. And, Rahul Tandon is in Calcutta with all the latest business news from the Indian subcontinent.
