Abstract:

Describing the work ethic in China is a complicated matter, and single explanations never quite hit the mark. Chinese outside China, notably in Singapore, Taiwan, Malaysia, and Thailand, are known for their high business profile, hard work, and solid business acumen. On the other hand, the work ethic in China itself sometimes appears distinctly relaxed. The obvious question is why? Is there some cultural explanation that applies only to Chinese in China itself? The answer is probably no. When it comes to entrepreneurial zeal and energy, China could be thought of as an explosion about to happen. For many decades much of the country's business energy and initiative was stunted by the government's tight reign. Quite simply, an entrepreneurial spirit wasn't allowed to exist. Making money was a no-no, and keeping a low profile was the most obvious, and sensible, way to avoid official attention. All that changed in the late 1970s as China's economy was freed up. Now the work ethic is much more lively and intense, especially in China's major cities, where making money and striving for a better life and material gains is just as important as in the West.
