China’s “Great Firewall” is the envy of the Putin regime, which has long feared that the rise of online political activism could loosen its grip on power.

Secrets of China
- In nearly every category, China is over-pricing its exports by 40%. A very good example is computers. Look for yourself at the prices of Taiwanese made PCs (Asus and Acer) vs. Chinese made (Apple, Dell, HP, Lenovo).

- Around 17% of Chinese exports are pirated or fake goods. This is worth $370B per year. In some categories sales of merchandise of even companies like Adidas, Apple, Nike, Louis Vuitton, Dolce and Gabbana is 50+% fake in both North America and Europe.
