(Aug 28): Belief in ill-founded myths and clichés makes it easier for us to believe some interpretations of China. Business finds fertile ground for claims of protection from foreign imports and the export of jobs to foreign lands. Some others feed off the propensity to always believe the worst about China.
This is a dangerous way to construct foreign policy and develop trade policy responses.
There are two widely divergent opinions when it comes to China, but it would be foolish to characterise them as pro- or anti-China, as they reflect very different views on doing business there.
