The Colbert Report: The White Stuff

Stephen Colbert provides his take on Chinese companies renting white guys as fake businessmen, while conceding that he has lost the rights to his The Colbert Report to the Chinese two years ago due to a sub-prime investment loss. Apparently, these fake businessmen jobs are also known in China as “white guy in tie events” or “face jobs.”

Of course, this practice in China definitely makes you ask the questionable ethics behind renting fake white businessmen to raise a company’s stature and legitimacy. But what about the people who accept such jobs? Are they not complicit in perpetuating this fraud? This practice reminds me of a 60 Minutes story a mini-Madoff fraudster in the U.S. perpetuating a fake business meeting in another company’s office.
