I find this Hub very interesting. When I was a teenager (I’m talking forty years ago), I had a lot of health problems so couldn’t dance, but I spent hours studying ballet theory. In those days, serious stretching before class was considered unnecessary.

Given the importance of the entrepreneur in driving the innovation process, I wrote “In search of the Chinese entrepreneur,” with profiles of Aigo’s Feng Jun and Sundia’s Xiochuan Wang and added a discussion of Chinese entrepreneurship as an innovation asset or bottleneck.In this, the sixth part in the series, Openness as a China Strategy; a View from Shanghai’s Bund, I engage with hundreds of your comments from over the week.Many readers voiced skepticism about the validity of Chinese innovation in a state controlled society words like “lie,” and “faade,” being some of the more polite terms of art. The commenter Truth remarked, “When I see a Chinese Jimi Hendrix or Beatles or Spielberg or Jobs or Edison or Gates or etc, I’ll believe.” In fact, some wondered whether I had been paid by China to write these pieces (I wasn’t) or whether I had consumed too much Chinese liquor before sitting down to write (I hadn’t). One person even questioned my loyalty as an American.What do I think? Right now China is climbing up the initial rungs of the innovation value chain by making big bets on education, funding of science and technology and creating an ocean of intellectual property.
