INDEED very scary...

watched the program lastnite...it is extremely scary if in the long run the whole wide world is depending on CHN for cheaper labor forces (let just say another 2 decades).  for now most countries are relocating their plants & production there in CHN...and left with basically nothing in their hometowns.  CHN helps the world moving along for now but eventually the whole world might noticing this is NOT a good practice for 'em in the long run.  again, you have to watch this special program in order to see & feel it in yourself; my words just WONT tell you much...you have 2 more episodes to catch if you've missed the beginning   :)

What is the old adage...

... no country is an island on to itself.

Have not caught all of it PJ - did Ted take a trip into the countryside to see if the moderizations are catching up to the average Chinese farmer?

second part series was awfully 'bout CHN...

young kids are supposingly to be in schools but they are not & they are in factories, restaurants, retails.  KTV bar is not exactly a fun place but sex joints for men...again, i DID NOT watch the entire second part series but just the beginning & i COULDNT continue after 5 minutes of watchin heartbreakin' what's goin there     

i'm NOT even sure what will be on the last episode

Hate to say it, but...

... I my wife's extended family has had to grapple with the issue of kids skipping school to work in a factory.  But as it stands, the lure of money can make many of a smart person really, really stupid.
