DAVID GREENE, Host:
And our last word in business today is talk of a transpacific takeover. A few days ago at Stanford University, a Chinese executive said he was very interested in Yahoo.
LYNN NEARY, Host:
As in buying Yahoo. The executive was Jack Ma. He runs a giant e-commerce website in China called Alibaba, and he knows Yahoo well. Six years ago, Yahoo bought a 40 percent stake in Alibaba, and is now the biggest investor in the Chinese site.
GREENE: But Yahoo's fortunes have waned, making it takeover target. Privacy watchdogs are already raising concerns about the dangers of a Chinese company owning the American Internet giant.
