China's Economy: Better Than Expected

Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao said Saturday the country's stimulus package is working and the economy is "better than expected."  Many economists said the rebound is a sign that the government's $586 billion in stimulus spending is beginning to bear fruit.

Wen also urged world leaders to be confident and hopeful.  "Confidence is more important than currency or gold," he said. "Today, I want to say that hope is also important. It's like a beacon."
