Business in China: 2

In my most recent post I've commented on Google, Microsoft and Yahoo's decisions on their business dealings in China. Jason Calacanis (CEO of Weblogs Inc.) made an interesting point on his blog about Google's decision and why he's all for it. Especially this line hit home:

" If our goal is to spread democracy in China the quickest way to do that is to make some short-term compromises. Drawing a hard line is the easy, intellectual route to take, but it's hopelessly naive. Rolling up your sleeves and investing in a market that could collapse or kick you out is, in fact, the courageous route."

Makes you think.
