Who would win in a hot war between Japan and China? The more limited the scope of the engagement, the better the chance for Japan to prevail. While China has more ships and planes, Japan has better ships and planes, with more maneuvering experience.

This week in Davos, one of the hottest topics cutting through the cold mountain air was health care. The debate has now moved beyond how to best pay for hugely expensive interventions -- that's sick-care -- to true health care for individuals, communities, countries and our planet.
