Reengineering China: Ending Ideology and Getting Pragmatic

  • Laurence J. Brahm


Beijing, 1981. In late spring 1981, I first arrived in Beijing. The airport felt like an oven, baking in stifling flat heat. Sweat poured. There was no conveyor belt for luggage. Scowling airport staff just threw luggage off a cart. They could not care less what was inside your bag. There was no concept of service. That was the work ethic after the Cultural Revolution. Nobody cared about anything.
