It’s that uncomfortable question. If Beijing sneezes, do developing economies catch a cold? Well, this week it was more like a raging fever. China’s small rise in interest rates (among other factors) sent U.S. stocks tumbling 165 points on Tuesday, and the rest of the world followed suit. But why, you might ask, does the world care so much about China? Well, fear not, Quest and Ali are back, and this week’s Q&A will be another battle of business wills to find the right answer to that question. Tune in tonight, Thursday to watch and leave us ideas for next week’s Q & A in the comments section (right underneath here).

For sale and foreclosure signs in California

Is your home a shelter, a roof over your head? Or is your home the biggest investment you'll ever make? Can it be both? In uncertain economic times, property has traditionally been thought of as a hedge against other, more liquid types of investments. In good economic times, property has traditionally appreciated. Today, however, is unlike the past. So how does property fit into your life right now? Richard and Ali battle it out to answer this question at 1800GMT.

It's becoming ever clearer that we love our holidays!

Whether it’s a cruise, a few nights camping under canvas, a package tour or a deluxe week in a spa.. we are prepared to spend money on getting away from it all. We need our holidays to recharge our batteries.

Some of you watching will be luxuriating in having weeks of annual leave to take. Others will barely get a long weekend with pay.

On this week's Q&A Ali Velshi and Richard Quest will be going head to head debating the entitlement to paid annual leave. They’ll look at the benefits of a vacation for employees, employers and the economy. Surely this is a win win! There will also be our head to head quiz – the guys are one-all at the moment, but will that last? See you at 2:00pm ET / 1800 GMT on CNN!

You’ve probably heard the screams “The Double-Dip is coming!” Sound like a great dessert? Maybe some soft ice-cream dipped once in chocolate and once in caramel? Yum! Or maybe nachos dipped once in sour cream and once in guacamole?

Unfortunately, we’re talking about a “double-dip” recession – something many economists and doom-sayers say we are headed straight for. Are we? And if we are, what, if anything, can you do to protect yourself? Richard Quest and I will duke it out for the best answer today on Q&A. 2:00pm ET / 1800 GMT on CNN.
