    If the report below is to be believed then it appears that Gambling is a national pastime of China.

    macau is a place where PRC people take (black) money and transform it.

    macau is also a place where PRC people can gamble.

    both are not allowed in PRC. and the figures are huge. its ironic that PRC displays macau to be a role model even better compared to its nearby more prosperous and important special regions.

    Delta Asia’s chairman rebuffs North Korea links « Macau Business

    CNN.com - Macau focus of push on NK activity - May 18, 2006

    There must be many a James Bond in covert operations.

    they are upgrading themselves to be more like the japanese. political ambitions. seems the PRC communists are also using them and fine with that.

    Hong Kong legislator says government using triads against protesters | World news | The Guardian

    but how communists controlled the triads in Macau is noteworthy and i would say commendable. it is a wonderful case-study:

    BBC News | ASIA-PACIFIC | Cracking down on the triads

    From 1999:

    there used to be bombings, murders, crime was high - also real terrorist stuff in macau before their handover and now it is peaceful. focus on economics might have been the message everyone will be happy.

    would love to have the insider stuff come out from PRC leaders and what and how they told the triads in Macau.
