| No, you really can't. One of my friends was quite astonished by the photo. (In fact, that photo shows exactly why he is viewed the way he is.)

I'm very interested in that precious picture however I don't risk to attach it here
Even phrases in that article such as "]x] means never having to say you're sorry" (in the article) is word play on the well-known phrase Love means never having to say you're sorry from an early 1970s novel (and movie) Love Story. If, as a reader, you're familiar with the original phrase, the phrase in the article is a clever twist.
I think The Economist's view on China is "cautiously favorable" with reservations. You can always look at the progress, on the one hand, and the problems, on the other, and take a positive or negative view. As an American, I try not to be judgmental. (And, given the US in recent years, I'd hardly be in a position to be, in any case.)
The Economist has a good article on infrastructure in China this week so you might want to take a look. Given the crowding that occurs every Spring Festival in the rush to get home to family, expanding the infrastructure is probably, on balance a good thing.
If you have any other "Economist questions," don't hesitate to ask!
