Better Life, Wider Gap
I have just read an article from the BBC news. The article talks about the lives of Chinese have improved but there is still a very big gap between the rich and the poor. After the Beijing Olympics, the economies of China have a great improvement. Just a week before, most of the Chinese celebrates the 30 years of economic reforms. According to the recent survey, it shows that between 1978 and 2007, rural poverty fell from 30.7% to just 1.6%. The most important reason of the result is just the human development; this is the most stunning achievement.
The article says that there is a problem that is emerged with not everyone benefiting equally from rapid economic expansion. The east urban of China is richer than the west urban; there is a large gap between different social groups. It is because the citizens just put capitals in one particular place and no one wants to invest in the hinterland. Therefore no improvement will exist in those places.
In my opinions, the rural people is very poor since they just gain a little profit a year and it is difficult for them to move to the big cities such as Shanghai, Beijing and so on. I suggest that the government ought to encourage the citizens to have an investment on the rural also the government should put more capital that increases the standard of their lives. The rural people should be supported by the government, so they can be easier to earn income or learn more skills that move to the city to work.
