Ha ha !
But seriously, I heard an interview with a man whose business runs in both China and America. He said that China was much simpler. In the USA there is a maze of regulations, and he is never sure if he is really complying. In China, he just attends a dinner every year where he hands a bribe envelope to the party officials, and thats it!
You play every game according to the rules. Not knowing the rules and not following them makes him in-compliant to the rules. Defeating the entire purpose of playing the game.
USA (as well as many other places) have a labyrinth of red-tape and bureaucracy. These are the Rules in order to play the game. In every game you have contingencies, and rules ensure you follow the game. If you don't follow the rules you are cheating. But if you find a contingency in the game which is not covered by the rules, then you have found a loophole and this can be exploited until it is closed down by yet new rules.
China is simpler because the rules are not as many in comparison. More open system. You can say the number of contingencies in the game have not come up as many times as in say USA, to be bound by rules. In time rules bind everything, everywhere.
There need to be fewer rules, but more integration of them.
Human civilixations are like a patchwork of humpty-dumpty dotted all over the place. Each with its own rules, own currency, own borders, own everything. Here-in lies many problems.
