As reported earlier, it is a wide-spread practice in Cities in China to destroy people's home and sell the land to developers at higher price. The residents normally get little or no compensation. Even with a good compensation, residents must move out first then get the money. It is very difficult for a common family to buy another home to move.
When the business world applaud China's economic growth, most ignore the bloody facts behind the growth rate.
On Sepetember 23, Boxun reported a picture from the website of Shanghai Police, the picture tells people do not pay sympathy to homeless. The picture shows one lady is cooking with her two kids. When people think it is not righ for police to teach people hate poors, do not forget that the world is ignoring majority of Chinese. They are not as happy as you think, their unhappiness will hurt your business in one day, maybe.
