Knowledge of the Chinese language!
04 November 2013
Graham Thompson of the Blackford Trust sent me this gem from The Literary Digest:
The need of knowledge of the Chinese language in order to do business in China is said to be overlooked by some American firms, and this fact is much regretted by an American weekly of Shanghai.
The date? ... January 5, 1924!
How slowly we are moving.
Let's make things happen!
