Signaling and supply chains in the Chinese startup scene

Recently I was talking with someone who works extensively in the Chinese startup space and at some point we got onto the topic of information. To many in the West, the stifling of free speech is seen as an anathema to human rights. To us, it might seem as though the country is constantly in the dark about its own world, but that doesn’t stop information from flowing in the form of gossip and hearsay. The result of this information ecosystem is a heightened information asymmetry, which should be understood on its own terms.
