who was the architect for terminal 2? the apparent sway of the government over design matters long after bidding is complete suggests the corrupt way of doing business continues and taiwan's still has a long way to go until it catches up to the other asian tigers, much less the west, in terms of transparency.

taiwan is wealthy by virtue of cheap and exploitative labor (contract manufacturing). its economy may have a relatively high per capita gdp, but still it is not a knowledge-based economy in which values brand equity and marketing the way south korea's is, and taiwan's economy is still run by unenlightened individuals. one can easily see this in the amateurish way business is conducted there. arbitrary regard for contracts, disregard for legal process, and cronyism are the norm there, as evinced by how this airport remodel was conducted.
