Brits Get Rich in China
If you enjoy reality type television about entrepreneurs on the make, check out this one hour long British documentary on three British businessmen who go to China to make their fortune. All three are very interesting characters. One is a profane street smart seller of kitchen counters and cabinets back at home who needs to get his costs down by working with Chinese suppliers. Another has been forced to shut down his UK-based pillow factory after basically being driven out of business by low cost competitors. He now tries to re-enter the business by building a factory in China with investor capital. The last man is quite the character. He's a retired British army officer in his 70s who smugly believes everything will go his way simply because he's British, old chap. Wot?! Are you suggesting it won't? To find out who succeeds and who doesn't, kick back and watch this.
