I found the article way too long to hold my interest, but I do think your comment hit upon some differences.

In a business class we went over cultural differences and one of them was that eastern cultures value collective merit or success whereas western cultures emphasise individual merit or success. Although I suspect western thinking is contaminating the eastern thinking these days.

Maybe you could give some insight into some of these differences from your perspective?

In the US, all too often a few industry celebrities take the credit for the work everyone else has done, and the US media is all too happy to give it to them.
