It seems like it is the Rich's world now. I think it is the natural stage of developing countries. People just got rich, they are eager to show off by wearing brand names, driving luxury cars and hanging around in high-end services. The business surely tries to meet their needs. So the playground for the rich show up. the other reason I believe is many of the rich in China now is not well educated. No matter how much money they earn, they are still poor in spirit. they are more like Nan Batian, they treat the poor, even their employees like rubbish. They just spend lavishly instead of repaying the society.

Like railway, not all people need the highspeed train with much cost, a part of them only need green train with inexpensive fee as long as then could come back home safely. When govement use enormous fund to do "beneficial" project, do not recognize your "good idea" as what people want, you should ask for the opinion from differen levels.
