Floyd Norris, who I once respected, has written an interesting column titled “In China, Detecting Fraud Riskier Than Doing It.” Norris states that China’s hostility to those who expose fraud is so unusual that it is worthy of a column: “It can be very risky to do things in China that are taken for granted in other countries.”
China is different from some other countries. China has no domestic rule of law and no respect for the rule of law in its dealings with other nations. The same is true of Russia. It is important to understand such differences.
