China's Entrepreneurial Advantage

An advantage Chinese entrepreneurs have over USA entrepreneurs is China does not have the policy of "get big or get out" that is mandatory at all levels of government in USA towards business.  So creative types can thrive there.
While she refuses to call her clothes business a commercial or fashion venture, the acclaimed designer who set up the highly popular local brand Exception, does like to experiment with her products.
"Our clothes are hand-woven, made from natural materials such as cotton and linen. And we only do plant dyes," says Su.
A Wu Yong workshop in Zhuhai city in South China's Guangdong province, where Ma's company is based, has some 40 workers, with the majority being weavers. For the designer, the concept of sewing by hand and weaving are essential to what she describes as "emotive dressing".

It's not just the "get big or get out" policy, - it's peoples' attitudes and mentalities. I believe that many Americans just don't know how to be successful entrepreneurs and have a lot of misconceptions about entrepreneurship. They also think it's too "risky."

The public school system also indoctrinates young people to be cogs in a giant corporation, rather than trying to start businesses on their own.
