Nov. 4 (Bloomberg) — I’m on a trip to China this month, and it’s coinciding with some Middle Kingdom soul-searching about what Chinese people owe one another. In an age of “golden collar” workers made rich in the new economy, the Chinese are struggling to locate their social conscience. To move to the next level of development, the government needs to do the same.
It’s an important sign that even as China’s leadership continues to censor the Internet, it’s allowing online safety valves to let off steam.
