Eric Schmidt on China as a Competitor

Tom Gara, with excerpts from Eric Schmidt’s new book:

“The disparity between American and Chinese firms and their tactics will put both the government and the companies of the United States as a distinct disadvantage,” because “the United States will not take the same path of digital corporate espionage, as its laws are much stricter (and better enforced) and because illicit competition violates the American sense of fair play,” they claim.

“This is a difference in values as much as a legal one.”

I’m curious where he sees South Korea on this scale.
