Is China Evil? January 30, 2007

Posted by Vijay in Business, China, Entrprenuers, Google, People.

Over the last week or so, the blogosphere has been debating the ethics of doing business in China. Some argue that businesses should not engage China until there is more political freedom there. Google’s admission that they “regret” their decision to work in China (quoted on Techcrunch) has only added to the ongoing discussion.

Chinese politicians are no saints but neither are leaders of the so-called democratic countries as well. If companies do not do business in China and engage Chinese businesses, it will be a bigger dis-service to China than the lack of political freedom. They (the people of China) stand a better chance of achieving political freedom this way.

Coming to businesses, China is a huge market and NO ONE can afford to ignore them. They are a growing economy and it would be foolish for me as a businessman to ignore opportunies there.

Hugh Macleod writes this wonderfully satirical but entirely relevant piece on being an entrepreneur. Lots of home truths here.

Something a lot of us who are in business can identify with 😦
