@Swahilikidbooks Kids are forced by parents to study hard and rote learn things. Maths and science lend themselves to this. Disciplined too, by fear of disappointing parents. The ethos is parents work hard, sacrifice and children in return must study and get better stations in life. It worked.

@Swahilikidbooks Not entrepreneurial in my experience. No one wanted to work for small company. They wanted to work for big prestigious organization, be it large corporations or government departments. Small business people are not particularly respected by the rest in these cultures.
