The Light Touch of No Government Regulation Summer, 2011
In the socialist economy of China, government regulation is often as derided, or ignored, as in any of the tea party fantasies coming out of prole-land or Romney-Ryanville.
A key example is elevator operation in China, particularly in the non-western oriented buildings (meaning buildings that have Chinese oriented businesses, not buildings that don’t have a western wall on the outside). I can’t really speak to elevator safety, or emergency situations. I don’t inspect limit switches, or floor leveling software, or cables, or brakes. I have seen some heat-activated floor selection buttons, which have long been a no-no in the heavily regulated US, but what I really want to talk about is elevator floor selection software.
