Networked Authoritarianism in Perspective

A short time ago, Rebecca MacKinnon wrote an excellent commentary on the Chinese government’s white paper on the Internet. In the government-published white paper, there was effusive praise for the Internet as a tool for social change under terms set by the party. The important thing to understand is that the party will set the [...]

What Happens To E-Commerce When Credit Cards Don’t Work?

During the past several years in China, I have spent a good deal of my time explaining to Americans that e-commerce solutions do not have to depend on credit cards. In many parts of the world, such as Germany and Japan, and in China, e-commerce is about building payment gateways to different banks using debit [...]

There Is No China Market

One of my biggest complaints about western observers of China is the overly used term “China market”. In fact, there is no China market, just as there is no European market.

Excuse Me! How To Regulate Micropayments?

In China, you know something has become big when the government starts worrying about how to regulate it. (Come to think of it, that’s the way it is with most governments, not just China’s.) China’s central bank, the People’s Bank of China, has asked the Finance Department of People’s University in Beijing to come up [...]

Chinese Government’s CSRC To Fund Managers: No Bad News

The Chinese government’s watchdog for equities, the CSRC (China Securities Regulatory Commission) has issued an edict to local fund managers that they are not to issue any pessimistic reports about equities during the Olympics in Beijing. My question is “Why bother?” The Shanghai market has been down 50% in the first half of the year, [...]

Is Twitter the American QQ?

Unless you have been living under a rock for the past six months, you have probably heard of Twitter. Developed with Ruby on Rails, it has now hit the big time, with many companies offering client versions of Twitter, so that you don’t have to keep the Twitter web page open to record your deepest [...]

Understanding the Chinese Hockey Stick

One of the things past experience has taught me that while it is possible to guess that some business will take off in China, it is almost impossible to tell when. The most common scenario is that for many years, a western business will devote its people and resources to making its business popular with [...]

Understanding China’s Youth Through Tencent’s QQ: A New Must-Read Report

As China becomes more developed and sophisticated, more westerners are coming to China to understand the reasons for its success. I don’t believe that the Chinese success can be fully ascribed to China’s rising wealth and development; a good deal also has to deal with how western countries have screwed up in their politics and [...]
