Guardian: chinese are cheating in marathon contests. One reason may be that the scores effect on university entrance exams. Be it dishonest, but they have effort and ambition left. Something Finland is missing. I'm inclined to think that the situation in china is in some respect similar to Finland after WW2. Nothing to lose, a lot to gain and entrepreneuristic people. A period of high growth until they get too prosperous.
