Business Communication In China


As is highlighted in this article, any person or company that does significant business or that hopes to do significant business in China has to, in some form, partner with the government.

Forget the advantages that China's politically elite children get inside. This is clearly just a form of legitimized bribery.

More Important, what will China demand of a Media company like Disney in its presentations and ABC news coverage of China?

If you want a clear view of the potential damage a Media company can do, look at the damage and havoc and division in the West created by the Murdoch Newscorp and trace his huge financial and family entanglements in China.

Let China's rich kids fend for themselves and look at what this means to America and the Chinese propaganda these deals will serve up.

While growing up during the paranoia about Communism in the U.S., I naively assumed that our government opposed the "evil empires" in the U.S.S.R. and China because those governments denied their citizens basic human rights, like the right to criticize the government, vote for their leaders, etc.

I really was naive, because now China is one of our largest trading partners, and American businesses have exported jobs to China in breathtaking numbers. Yet, the Chinese regime is just as autocratic as it was before China switched to "capitalism". If you speak out against the government, you will be beaten and arrested. There is no freedom of the press or right to form political parties. Everything is controlled by the Party and wealth is doled out to the connected, while your average Chinese worker earns a pittance.

Russia is ostensibly "democratic" and certainly not as oppressive as it once was, but it is still hardly a model democracy. Curiously, we do more business with China than we do with Russia.

The fact that American big business is in bed with an autocratic government in China, that is evidently highly corrupt, indicates to me that our business leaders consider evil empires perfectly acceptable, as long as they are capitalist and American companies get a piece of the action. Morality and human dignity are irrelevant.

I couldn't imagine how accurate the report of NY times can be before I read this article.Well,I in fact have been in China for 19 years,and that's my age.I have see many things that those farmers have experienced. Personally speaking, China need to develop, there is no question about it ,but sometimes(maybe most times)the approach is not that appropriate, I mean ,too fast.Besides,I wanna say sth about the image of China,it seems that in many people's eyes,China is a typical tyranny country.but most times,people live in China don't need to involve with government officials. I mean you can have a peaceful life without others give you troubles.After all,everybody get his own business to do,who care so much about government?And the government also don't have so much time to tell you what you should do or not,.

Yes, those guys enriched themselves but made China a relatively better place. How about the U.S. military officials? How did some of them spend and embezzle our tax money and destroy other countries? This article also needs a second part: How Western business people conduct illegal business in China.
