I remember a show called “connections”, where the host (james Burk) explained why China could come up with gunpowder and paper and make fireworks, and the western world takes those same things and makes books and canons.

It went something like this: In China, if you were a dirt farmer and you came up with a really good idea, the rulers took it, said Thank You and then told you to get back on your farm. The western world created laws (e.g. patent laws) that at least more ensured that if you came up with a really good idea you’d get amply rewarded for it. So guys actually bothered to TRY to come up with good ideas.
