Episode Summary

Steve Kroft looks into Chinese telecom giant Huawei, a global company whose U.S. Headquarters are in Plano, Texas. Huawei, whose Chinese hierarchy is clothed in secrecy and whose senior executives rarely grant interviews, has been investigated by the U.S. House Intelligence Committee over concerns of being a potential security threat to the United States, government, industry and citizenry.
Lesley Stahl reports on the world's largest eye-wear company, the Italian firm Luxottica, responsible for putting glasses on half a billion people.
Bob Simon profiles singer-songwriter Rodriguez, whose two early-1970's albums were largely ignored in America while thriving in South Africa. A recent documentary on his life entitled Searching for Sugar Man, has helped Rodriguez gain a measure of notoriety in America.
