Collectivism/communitarianism "encourages members (of the group) to leave a legacy to society, neighborhood, and family, which lasts beyond the individual life" (Hampden—Tumer and Trompenaars, 2000, p.79).This is to say that people on the collectivist side are integrated, from birth on, into extended in—groups that prioritize collective and inner group interests over indivdual ones (Hofstede, 2001).China is the lowest individualist country among the countries investigated—showing the characteristics of "'we' consciousness, collective orientation, particularist, membership ideal, less consciousness of private life, activities imposed by context, traditional society" (Hofstede, 2001, p.227).For instance, for a long time in China, a formal copyright law was entirely missing in the legal discourse.Authors were not benefited much from their creations because copyrights belonged to the nation.In return for their work, they received a very small manuscript fee.
Power distance, the last cultural dimension to be discussed in this chapter, refers to the extent to which a society accepts human inequality (Hofstede, 2001, p.79).
