Logan's Run: 2006

I've come across something here in Shanghai I think is very interesting: all of the knowledge workers are very young. After thinking about it more, this phenomenon is probably repeated in many developing nations. Basically, anyone over 35 years old grew up in a very different time when China was dominated by state-run enterprises. This entire generation of workers is now either VERY wealthy (and as such not interested in working for a company), corrupt, or not very talented [editor's note, the first two attributes are not necessarily mutually exclusive]. It's surprisingly hard to find good middle-managers and no, that's not an oxymoron.
