Hey WDW1974, when was the last time you went to China? I spent five months last year in Chengdu and traveled a great deal while I was there. What you see on TV from Bejing and Shanghi is not the real china. Try traveling away from the tourist area's and you will see the REAL China. There is no middle class. Mostly poor and destitute people just trying to survive. The majority of the places I visited you could not pay me to stay at. I audit pharmaceuitcal companies in the U.S. and was asked to do the same in China. The conditions of those companies in China were appalling. If those Pharmaceutical companies were in the U.S. they would be shut down immediately. China is just a SHELL of what you see on TV.
