DAVOS, Switzerland — Chinese Vice Premier Zeng Peiyan joined a growing chorus of leaders at the World Economic Forum here warning about bleak prospects for global growth this year. He also voiced concerns about protectionist sentiments and inflationary pressures in his country and around the world because of high energy and food prices.
The subprime mortgage crisis in the U.S. "has hurt many financial institutions and its adverse impact on countries concerned is starting to be felt,'' Zeng said.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
