China Profiles

In a story entitled China Juggles Conflicting Pressures of Society in Transition, the New York Times gives a glimpse of Chinese society by profiling six people: “The six people most forthcoming and the most representative of a large segment of Chinese society were selected for profiles. Each of them stands at the high end of his or her respective group. Li Yongrong, a farmer, has a home telephone and owns a small truck, making him a rich man among his peers. Chen Qun, a migrant worker in southern China’s Shenzhen special economic zone, earns far more by working far less than many of the factory workers that fill the workshops of China’s coastal export belt.” [via Frank Yu’s Brand Recon]
