Nowadays

Nowadays, there are developed countries economically and politically powerful. The most recognized worldwide are United States and China. Even though these two countries have a very strong economic, they are different and similar in several ways.
Social structure in China is formal and hierarchical. Chinese know where they fit in the structure and they abide by the rules there. There is no crossing into other areas. However, in the United States, it is much more loose and informal. It is not uncommon to see people of different social classes talking to each other and socializing. There are only few lines that socially are not allowed to be crossed.
Chinese society places high values on the morals of their people. They mostly don’t get marry until the late twenties. In fact, dating is not allowed in young people’s lives. The American culture is more relaxed and some could even argue that there needs to be more moral emphasize. Teens leave their parents’ house by age of 18, and most start dating when they are in Middle School.
Chinese love socialization in their business. Business becomes secondary as the parties get to know each better. If it delays a contract, that is perfectly acceptable as long as the correct social time is allotted for. In America, business associates are usually more aloof. There might be some social gathering, but the business is more important and the socializing will be sacrificed to get the job done if needed. Although there seems to be shift in America regarding this, the recognition of networking is becoming more popular.
