FIVE BLEAK SIGNS VIETNAM IS BECOMING THE CHINA OF 10 YEARS AGO

 China was once so well known for bribes that foreign companies just priced it in. Bribes still change hands in China but have gone at least under the table due to the government’s extra-serious anti-corruption campaign since 2012.

 2. Copyright and trademark violations: I heard a story this month in Ho Chi Minh City about a cashew seller who uses the Taco Bell logo on his business cards and knows it. The storyteller says this sort of knockoff is normal. China once allowed a “Starsbuck” (not a typo) cafe to operate in the coastal city Qingdao and street vendors in Beijing sell to Gap-lookalike clothing labeled “Gpa.”
   Over the past two decades foreign lobbyists have pressed China to crack down on intellectual property violations, and Chinese firms themselves are suing more often.
3. Traffic is getting worse. Traffic in Ho Chi Minh City, the major southern metropolis, moves slowly amid the major malls and office towers, and occasionally not at all. You might wait multiple turns to get through one red light. Traffic in increasingly populated and ever wealthier Beijing and Shanghai slowed down like that around 2000 as more cars hit the road, on the way to total gridlock.
4. Workers job hop to earn an extra dollar a week. When I lived in Beijing before 2005, local friends would work in a company only until they found another that paid a few more yuan per month. Time on any given job might come to just half a year. Foreign investors were paying more than local companies, sparking a lot of the movement. But there was no loyalty to anyone. Vietnamese office workers, who can be hard to find for lack of skills, are doing that now.

5. If you’re wealthy and you know it, show it off. Families might scrimp on furniture and even eat on the floor, says Oscar Mussons, international business advisory associate with the Dezan Shira & Associates consultancy in Ho Chi Minh City. It’s OK, because most outsiders won’t see their homes.

 But when people in that hypothetical household go out, they useiPhones and new motor scooters by popular Japanese brands Honda or Yamaha, he says. They might eat at foreign food restaurants to be seen paying high sushi prices instead of low-end spring roll rates.

 China made a name for conspicuous consumption before the recent crackdown on corruption, which had featured big banquets and bling-y overseas shopping trips.
