Around China : Burak43 commented on news China to Train Five Thousand Football Coaches

Problem is, people in China don't rally do teamwork, despite being a collectivist society. I don't know if throwing more money at it will be enough to solve that. Full Comment>>

Articles : Burak43 commented on news When to Hold Your Tongue: The Importance of Respecting “Face”

Very well written about face. And it highlights the issue facing (lol) China. If everyone is too afraid to rock the boat and disturb the harmony (lol) to deal with some real problems, how much really can China improve?

Articles : Burak43 commented on news Should the World Fear Chinese Soft Power?

The problem is that "win-win" is an alien concept in China. It's not simply enough for "you" to win, you also have to humiliate your opponent, only then have you truly won. This type of mindset is not conductive for either an advanced economy, nor for a great "soft" power. Full Comment>>

this is a classic case of having so many rules and regulations that every citizen is a criminal by default. Then the police or authorities can always find a stick to beat you with if they need to, or want to, or just feel a little bored that day. Full Comment>>

I did my master's degree in China, and while I don't regret it it was fascinating to see how education really works in China.
