I've obviously missed your point, please explain it to me. If you don't care either way, why the thread?

Your experience is very slim and you are evaluating that small 'blinkered' opinion then applying it to a piece of land mass that covers a large chunk of globe.

Such a stupid comment, and racist.

All cultures aside dude, I think you'll find that if you ask for a deal, you quite often get. It's an unsuccessful businessman that doesn't at least attempt to get a better deal surely?

You've jumped to that conclusion rather havn't you?
,,, the dude prob means it like .... in any other way for eg: pikeys nick stuff, "Asians barter" people say atuff like that every day....... just because he mentions "Asians" it kicks off as rascism
perhaps he didn't mean it in a rascist way, he may just be showing his dissaproval for the way the majority of asians "Barter"

Why are you picking on me? Bloody hell's bells. His post 'reads' as ignorant and racist, just bringing that to his attention is all.

My current MD is Indian. The Company I work for are Indian and our Head Office is in Nagpur, India.
I honestly couldn't work for a better, more entrepreneurial organisation. Payrise's are given based on performance rather than inflation and they are generous almost to a fault. I have also found that when dealing with the staff at our manufacturing sites, they are all courteous, respectful and helpful. Dare I say more so than some of my British colleagues.....

I used to own my own business and trust me, I was hell to negotiate with when it came trying to gain value from suppliers. I have learnt a lot from my "Asian" Employers about why that isn't always the best practice.
