Chinese look at the most online porn at work, yet economic growth outstrips rest of world

Scientists are attempting to find a link between workers viewing porn and productivity increases.

This is after research from security firm Blue Coat Systems found workers in China, the world’s fastest growing economy, are more likely to look at porn while using work computer devices.

About 20% of Chinese workers visit sites with adult content while working. China’s economy grew 7.2% in the fourth quarter of 2014. In contrast in Britain, where 10% of people look at porn at work economic growth was only 0.5%.

Do the maths.

Surprisingly only 5% of French workers participate in a bit of porn at work. But given the average French film I imagine porn is conservative compared to what goes on in stock rooms across France.
