Questions for discussion:

  • Summarize the reasons for Baidu stock increases.
  • Do you think Google is right or wrong to leave China?
  • Is there another way for investors to play the Chinese internet market if Google pulls out?
  • If Microsoft agrees to the play by the Chinese government rules and replaces Google in the marketplace there, do you believe that decision would hurt the Microsoft brand image elsewhere?
