China Edging Toward Middle Class Revolution?

  • The train crash aftermath is shifting power from the state to citizens. The Chinese premier brought a doctor’s note when he visited Wenzhou to apologize for not coming sooner. 98% of the 60,000 polled thought the government was burying the train wreckage after 48 hours to conceal evidence. Reporting was clamped down with authorities saying that “public opinion inside and outside China has begun to become complex.” In the week after the crash, thirty million messages were “tweeted” on the two main Weibo microblogs. It’s worth googling.

  • There is one thing that puzzles me. You hear how China’s economy will exceed America some time in the future. I have to ask, when will China’s economy per capita exceed America’s?
