Now hiring: white guys for Chinese meetings


This has to be the weirdest thing I've run across in a while: Rent a White Guy, from The Atlantic. It's about an American expat in China who was hired to act as an executive from a non-existent U.S. company, including at a ribbon-cutting event. Is it theater? Is it fraud? Is it just one of those respect-the-differences things? I'll leave it to you to judge.
