Oct 19, 2018

BEIJING — China reported economic growth sank to a post-global crisis low as finance officials launched a media blitz Friday to shore up confidence in its sagging stock market. Growth in the quarter that ended in September slipped to 6.5 percent over a year earlier from the previous quarter's 6.7 percent, official data showed. It was the slowest rate since early 2009. The world's second-largest economy already was cooling before a tariff war between Beijing and President Donald Trump erupted. Beijing tightened controls on lending last year to rein in a debt boom. That has weighed on housing sales and...

Oct 19, 2018

TOKYO — The Japanese government on Friday ordered a company that falsified quality data for earthquake "shock absorbers" used in hundreds of buildings to speed up an investigation and fix any problems quickly.

The materials allegedly were used in some venues for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, including a swimming pool that is under construction, and the Tokyo Skytree, the city's landmark 634-meter (2,080-foot)-high broadcast tower. It's the latest in a slew of data manipulation...
