“Two decades ago, as Apple’s operations chief, Mr. Cook spearheaded the company’s entrance into China, a move that helped make Apple the most valuable company in the world and made him the heir apparent to Steve Jobs. Apple now assembles nearly all of its products and earns a fifth of its revenue in the China region. But just as Mr. Cook figured out how to make China work for Apple, China is making Apple work for the Chinese government.” A very detailed report that highlights what it takes to do business in China, and the powerful role of corporations in our increasingly connected world. NYT: Censorship, Surveillance and Profits: A Hard Bargain for Apple in China. “Apple built the world’s most valuable business on top of China. Now it has to answer to the Chinese government.”
