    Family Business and Succession / MPF Tax Breaks

    On Friday's Backchat, family business and succession. Hong Kong's second richest Lee Shau-kee has announced his retirement and is planning to hand over his business to his sons. Li Ka-shing and Stanley Ho have also been handing over the reins. By one estimate 60% of the GDP of Hong Kong and China comes from family controlled firms - how should they handle the transition from one generation to another? How do they manage personal and professional relationships at the same time? In most cases the next generation are more modern and corporate - does this mean the end of Asian family conglomerates? Can the youngsters live up to the pioneers? After 9.20, MPF tax breaks.

    Gene-Altered Babies

    主持人:Hugh Chiverton and Jim Gould

    On Thursday's Backchat, the world’s first gene-altered babies. On Wednesday, Scientist He Jiankui spoke at the International Summit on Human Genome Editing being held at HKU, saying that he is proud of his creation, while the Southern University of Science and Technology in Shenzhen – where he was teaching – “was deeply shocked by this event”. Government agencies have ordered investigations into the experiment and a global outcry followed on ethical issues. What implications does this controversy bring? Can gene-altered babies really “help the families and their children”? Is it acceptable to prevent disease? What about a condition like deafness, or low IQ, or baldness? What about 'enhancing' people? What about the fact that any alterations could be passed to future generations too? Do you agree with Stephen Hawking that DNA editing could create a race of super-humans that would threaten mankind as we know it?
