    But what is Cai and the Ministry defining as “culture”? When he states ” investment and financing system for the cultural sector by listing and issuing bonds to cultural enterprises and encouraging non-public investment in the sector”, which cultural enterprises get these bonds? Will this include foundations to offer funding to independent performing arts groups to create more art? Or will this go to large movie houses and animation companies to create a home-grown “Kungfu Panda” movie to compete with Pixar? An “industry” and a “market” are only healthy if there is diversity — large, medium, small enterprises; commercial and experimental; variety = health and sustainability. A forest or an ecosystem, like a market or an industry, dies out if there is no diversity.
