The Economist sets out to fight discrimination in China… in a slightly offensive manner

I just came across this article from The Economist (25th October 2014)
The rise of China: Employers favour recruits who stand head and shoulders above their peers

Promotion of the article on Twitter used the last line.

Employers’ preference for high and mighty staff exacerbates that inequality. It is time they grew up.

I was surprised that the article went to print without a price tag for this discrimination being assigned for China-as-a-nation, sectors or employers. (Surely ‘no reliable data’ is not usually a hurdle.)
