How cultures around the world make decisions

How cultures around the world make decisions | Southmoore AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
Is the American obsession with individual freedom really such a great idea? What other cultures know about how to make good choices.
more...
Kortney Renee Honstein's curator insight, November 6, 11:59 PM

As the United States we love to make things our own. Create things to make ourselves stand out and seem different. We like to branch out. As in making choices to change things out in our menus at restaurants. Just like France doesn't allow that because it is their restaurant. This is an idea of fold culture because it shows that the United States likes the freedom to do whatever we please. And other places like the strict ground rules they have set to keep what they love to themselves so others don't ruin it. 

Dean Haakenson's comment, November 7, 9:02 AM
Interesting Article--and it makes a lot of sense when thinking of the value of the individual in the US.

Hong Kong student leaders blocked from traveling to Beijing

Jake Red Dorman's curator insight, November 25, 1:13 PM

It is clear that if the Chinese officials didn't want to talk to these kids than they would find a way not to talk to them, but limiting their travel to Beijing is so stupid of them. Obviously stopping them from traveling would capture more global attention and would also make the Chinese government seem scared of three college kids. Why couldn't they have just let them come to their city knock on their door, and say no comment like everyone else in the world who doesn't want to be bothered by questions? This to me just makes the Chinese government look terrible and it brings more attention to the Chinese government than just not answering these kids’ questions.
