Perhaps you misunderstand my "comments re: the Chinese."
My comments regarding the general lack of ability to innovate were in respect of the Chinese national corporate entity - i.e., the PRC.
Not individual Chinese people, who are as talented as any other when free to work outside the PRC in an environment that values and rewards free thought and free expression.
My comment was made in response to a discussion on the subject of national competition between the US and China for economic and technological superiority in the world.
A glance at the affiliations of the principal and second authors of this paper shows it is a prime example of why the US need not fear being eclipsed by Chinese science any time soon:
University of California, Berkeley, CA 94720, USA.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA.
Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106, USA.
Yes, by the time we get down to the 3rd and 4th Authors we find an affiliation with Tsinghua University, Beijing, 100084, P. R. China - but both these authors are also affiliated with MIT in the first instance.
Also nice that you mistakenly spotted a misunderstanding. However, your understanding of PRC is beyond mine.
Have a nice day, too.
