Advertising in China: The kickback game

Something we in the marketing business all know about but rarely mention. Play by the rules, refuse to pay the bribe, get screwed. A very interesting and troubling piece from Marketwatchplace – try to listen to the actual broadcast. It’s great, especially the interview with That’s Beijing manager Mike Wester. Thank God for National Public Radio. It’s even better than CCTV.

Sorry to be nit-picky, but the show name is “Marketplace” not Marketwatch. And to be even more nit-picky, the show is distributed by American Public Media, not NPR (though it is usually broadcast on NPR stations).

Public Radio webcasts helped keep me sane while I was living in China.

Thanks for the correction about the show’s name, now fixed. I’ll still give NPR credit for bringing it to us – I’ve only heard it on NPR stations.
