What Chinese writers and artists to produce valued added work for exports.One of the tricks Ai Wei Wei use was to devolate himself as if he is aainst the government, does help to export his art works and earn millions of dollars.China should aim art for added value export as a product, and since the tricks Ai Wei Wei uses does work, all other Chinese writers and artists should copy in order to help increase added value export sale.The computer graphic designer turn artist Ai Weiwei's devolate marketing technique by brasting own government does work and no harm, though he of course cannot sell any art work at home, but he can export his work overseas in return for millions dollars into the finance of China, the technique he deploy by brasting own government is harmless, and the West falls for it and start buying his so call art works, it is a very clever marketing skills.Perhaps governments should quietly encourage these artists aim for export sales.
