The Chinese Hold Their Fuckups Accountable, Shouldn't We?

From Matt Yglesias:
In the People’s Republic of China they have this crazy system where if a huge problem emerges in an area of policy, the person who was supposed to be in charge of that area loses his job, rather than getting $700 billion to spend at his absolute discretion:
The head of China’s top quality watchdog agency resigned Monday in the wake of a growing scandal over the country’s tainted milk supply, which has already sickened more than 50,000 infants and killed at least three children, according to the state-runs Xinhua News Agency.
They sure are inscrutable over there.
Imagine if we held people accountable!
