We hear from Jordan Fabian, White House watcher from thehill.com. Japan's biggest ever initial public offering is happening today. SoftBank is aiming to raise capital, perhaps as much as 3 trillion yen, so that it can keep making investments in tech startups. Also we mark 40 years of economic reform in China.
