Does China Beat Its Wife?



May 12, 2010 – Comments (5)

China's Vice Minister of Commerce, Fu Ziying, had some interesting thoughts about China's role in Africa according to The WSJ. This is probably my favorite part:

"It's like marriage. The husband and wife are happy. Their happiness quotient is very high. But suddenly you have someone beside you that keeps criticizing the marriage," he said. "If Africa has a criticism about China's investment in Africa, then that is a problem."

I'm going to go out on a limb and assume that China considers itself the "husband" here, so make of that what you will.

This sounds like a reflection of your personal perception of the traditional "husband" and "wife" roles.

The quote uses a poor metaphor but suggests nothing for you to be so cynical.

Poorly thought out title.  Poor taste.  Wife beating is not a cute subject to many.

Some people are really sensitive, aren't they? I wonder if they've ever been on the interwebs before.

I'd say china pays africa for sex.  Spousal abuse may or may not factor into it.

Look, I didn't come up with the bizarre analogy, just extended it.
