Six of the ten most pollutant cities in China in the first half of this year are from Hebei, a province surrounding the capital of Beijing, according to a newly released air quality report.

I assumed that being closed to a developed region should always be a good thing, but it seems I'm wrong. As some stories say, Beijing compete with neighboring cities in terms of  natural resources - like water - and talents, but shift most of its heavily pollutant industries like cement, steel mills to near cities. All these drag on the development of near-capital cities.

I'm not sure if the DC in the US or London has the same problem, but it's sad to see one region is booming at the expense of the fellow regions.

Industrialisation has a price ... I am sorry for the people, though.

China is spending US$500 billion a year in the NEXT 5 YEARS to solve these problems.
Expect this to be a MAJOR contributor to HIGH INCOME JOBS in China, besides the obvious COMING BIG BANG in the Financial/Social Security funds and probably the TOURISM/ENTERTAINMENT sectors!
