The Chinese Bubble: Predictions and Perspectives (Enhanced DVD)
While the rest of the world struggles to keep their economies afloat, China seems to be immune to the struggles suffered by its global neighbors. But is this prosperity destined to last? Just how beneficial is financial success to Chinese citizens? This program offers rarely-seen perspectives from citizens, experts, and celebrities alike, revealing a growing divide between the rich and poor in a so-called land of equal opportunity.
While ordinary citizens barely scrape by on tiny wages, China’s wealthy citizens continue to demand foreign luxuries. The rich claim everyone in China has the opportunity to prosper, but economists and business experts reveal that is hardly the truth. The government reaps the benefits of a cheap workforce, and their well-funded ambitions have little to do with benefitting those at the bottom rungs. In an economy driven by exorbitant housing prices and blatant bribery, how long will it be before the Chinese Bubble bursts?
