Chinese for chutzpah?

I’m not sure what’s the Chinese word for chutzpah, but this may be the definition.

Beijing’s Silk Street, a notorious market for counterfeit goods where you can find everything from ski jackets to high-end handbags, is now marketing its own line of products under the SILKSTREET brand. Products in the line will include clothing items like neckties and shirts as well as household goods like tablecloths. The kicker is that general manager of the market promises that anyone selling SILKSTREET merchandise outside of the Silk Street Market will be prosecuted. In other words, a market famous for counterfeit goods wants no counterfeiting of their products.

It’s a strange world sometimes…
