I agree with you.
Yes,it is emergent to extend medical insurance system and retirement amount in village.

But it is huge difficulty in china becuase of rural population.


yep, it's very difficult for gov to let all people in china to get out of poverty, but we should realize actually china gov has made great progress on reducing poverty people qty, so we also need keep confident in future, at least our gov pay more attention to rural people, as said "the road is flexural, but the future is bright", right?!

Hopefully waiting for the day to come

It is really a good news to farmers. In all kinds of reports and statistics, farmers are always described as a group of people with higher and higher income. Perhaps those statistics are true in some areas, but in my hometown, farmers do not own that high income as reported, but still live under the poverty line and have to lead a miserable life.

They often lack money to do what is necessary, for example, to provide tuition fees for their children, most of the farmers do not have the ability to afford their children to enter universities. Under this condition, many students from rural area have to take loan to pay their tuition fees, as for their cost of life, they have to do part-time job to earn pocket money. It is miserable for a poor student, to earn his basic life fees will take his most time, as a result, the student's study will be affected badly.

This is the temporary situations in rural areas, at least in my hometown.

The first, disposable income means the money you safe in bank and buy something you want but not have to buy. So it's not reasonable to compare it with GDP growth rate.

The second, as GD said, farms need less disposable income than urbans.


Thanks yuan, I obviously wasn't paying enough attention and didn't realise it was disposable income. Still not much difference since we are talking growth rates and if expenses remain constant or increase with inflation then gross income growth (after inflation) should equal gowth in disposable income.

So I still think a 100% increase over 11 years is not worth getting excited about when GDP is averaging 9 or 10 percent a year.
