On the ground relevant data and knowledge on the mainland

Shanghaiist recently did a must-read interview with Shaun Rein.  I had the fortune of interviewing him for my book (see Ch 4 & 13), but this new interview is even better/more detailed in my opinion.

He’s one of the few laowai that truly understands what is going on here, approaching the business atmosphere with a very balanced mindset.  Check out his book and if you’re looking for a consumer research firm, he happens to manage one (CMR) as well.
