'Rigtige mænd' på bunden af samfundet

Møller, Henrik Kloppenborg LU (2011) In Kinabladet 52. p.15-18
Abstract
In the first half of the 1900s, 'yellow bulls' was a negative designation for a certain group of middle-men in Shanghai's commodity trade. Now, some 'yellow bulls' work in Shanghai's markets for counterfeit goods. They present themselves as 'real men', while fighting for a respectable place in reform-era urban China.

'Gule tyre' var i 1900-tallets første halvdel den negative betegnelse for en slags mellemmænd i varehandelen. Nutidens gule tyre lever af kopivaremarkedet. De fører sig frem som 'rigtige mænd', mens de kæmper for en respektabel plads i samfundet.
