Welcome to ATS Earthlism.
Personally, I'd be interested in knowing more about Chinese economics and energy issues, China's role in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization,
China's role in the call for an Asian Common Currency and the balance between the need for keeping economic growth alive while dealing with the
widening gap between the classes. What's it look like "on the ground".
Chinese economy is do growing fast, but it's hard to say how much benefit for the common people can get from the growing economy. I'm not a
economist, but I always wonder what is it made the chinese growing economy. I think it's a result of international cooperative power, and China and
India just supply the proper soil.
As for chinese citizens, we all face the rising prices of foodstuffs, household supplies, commodities, especially apartments. But only a little part
of people can earn enough money.
In my hometown, most citizens earn only 200-300 rmb/m, just as ten years before. But they are luckier than the unemployed people in cities, because
they at least have soil to feed themselves, and the latter have to rely on the lowest alms （200-300 rmb/m too） and the higher price in city. They
served country for whole life, but were abandened at last. There are no hope for them to shake off the nightmare.
As for the white collar, we all live in city, and the price of apartments in city is very high. 3,000-8,000 rmb/m is the income of most white collar.
Now the average price of apartments in Shanghai is about 10,000 rmb/pm. There are so many people past 30 unable to buy their own apartmant. We earn
money by working for foreign company, and government rob it by high price and high taxes.
The gap between rich and poor is huge. There are many richest man in China. They earn money even much easier than American rich. If you have
background, you have many ways to earn money. Most fortune were gathered to the power man relatived to the government top officer.
Life is still hard, and crisis is still existed in everyone's heart.
I envy you all, because you don't live in a country whose government don't care for the people's interests, they put the country up the people,
then put themselves up the country. Although they always claim they represent people.
