the USA. The majority of the Chinese do not seem to be thrilled with the news. The Chinese authorities
decided to take a direct action against the social stratification and ban the advertising of luxury goods.

The authorities of Beijing have recently decided to ban the advertising of luxury goods in the capital not to
hurt those who can never afford diamonds and pearls. The billboards displaying such words as "elite,"

It is easy to understand the Chinese authorities. The growing number of the poor and the rich seriously
affected the situation inside the country. Last year, a wave of mass killings shocked the country. A number
of gruesome attacks on elementary schools and kindergartens were committed: mentally unbalanced
individuals wielding hammers of knives attacked everyone on their way.

In 2009, 30,000 workers of a steel-casting factory organized an action of protest which ended with a fight
with the police and the killing of a factory supervisor. The workers were concerned that the lynched
supervisor was receiving three million yuans a year ($483,000), whereas the average pension of a factory
worker was not more than 200 yuans a month.

Incidents like those occur as a result of the social stratification in China, experts say. A small group of
people get rich at the time when the majority of the huge country have to live in poverty.

The number of crimes and mental disorders has been growing among the citizens of China steadily during the recent years. Many of those crimes are based on social instability: stresses, fears to lose jobs and homes, poor living conditions, the absence of elementary comfort, etc. This phenomenon is a side effect of the speedy economic development of the country, experts say.
