砖家 (zhuānjiā): brickspert

Bricksperts. (Source: Ta Kung Pao)

Experts who are beholden to government or corporate interests. The first character in "expert" (专家 zhuānjiā) is replaced with "brick" (砖). Bricksperts often downplay health and safety risks and justify difficult economic conditions. Take this response to the August 6, 2013 People's Daily article "Experts Say Half of People Want to Delay Retirement; National Pension Increases 30 Billion RMB Annually" (专家称近一半人想延迟退休 养老金年增收300亿):

@zening: The bricksperts are wrong. They ought to say that no Chinese person wants to retire—they want to offer their entire lives to the Party as tribute!! (August 7, 2013)

砖家说的不对,应该是全体中国人都不想退休~~为党奉献终生!! [Chinese]

Bricksperts are especially famous for their opinions on the real estate market:

Huangrihan-baihe (@黄日涵-白鹤): Those bricksperts who claim that low housing prices don't meet urban standards, aren't they lap dogs for developers? What about lap dogs for economists and scholars of international relations? (August 6, 2013)
