I am reading this book now and liking the writing style. Here is one of the more gangsta quotes about China.
‘America is great because guns make everybody equal. Freedom in China is a pocketful of money,’ he said, showing me a six-inch-thick wad of 50-yuan notes. ‘In China, you either have money or you have to be obedient.’
I will be posting a bit more from the book about arbitrage and other hustles the locals have and have had during the rise.
