Whether or not this is positive to China and the world is not what is key here. There is a common rule I find when dealing with Chinese from the mainland and that is that generally, they tend to gloss over details. That is why you find chinese goods that lack refinement, lots of facade but lack of foundation, the list goes on and on. This has to do with the chinese and the utmost importance of saving face. The point of this is that heavy spending on buying prestige and...

Not that I don't like the look, what makes it cool is that not ever jacket has one but now almost every jacket does. Just like this ridiculous narrowing of the width of the lapel to 1 inch. It looks ridiculous.

It's been going on for too long and I think it should stop. What are your thoughts?
For anyone that works in corporate america, there is always a year end review of the past year's performance. Typically, it is your immediate manager and his manager giving you a review. I find this is one-sided. How would one progress a complaint towards a higher up then one is of the rank and file? I did an extensive google search on this subject and found the odds are stacked against the rank and file. Typically the result is this: Since it considered a breakdown...
