Chinese Toymaker Boss Kills Himself over Recall

Man, but these Chinese take things seriously. Mess up as a manager, and the government either executes you or you kill yourself, as in the manager of the plant that made the million or so toys that Mattell was required to recall.

There's something pathological going on with China, I believe. Its communist government is trying so hard to turn China into an economic powerhouse (while utterly destroying the country's environment, executing incompetence, essentially utilizing slave labor) that it's pushing that nation to the brink of some sort of explosion.

If China makes it through a transition to a freer society and true capitalist economy, I'll be shocked. As it is, I'd predict that the entire nation will commit suicide one day.
