None. There was a very interesting article in either Air Transport World or Airline Business within the last 6-8 months (sorry, I can't be more specific) that discussed differences in flight crew interactions amongst different cultures. One point in the article was that cultural differences between east and west make quite a difference in whether or not a first officer will question an order from the captain.
