Yes, I think this is a very important difference:
    * How well can someone from China live on $1,000 USD/month in Shanghai?
versus
    * How well can someone from the U.S.A. live on $1,000 USD/month in Shanghai?

Or maybe the question is .... if you can't speak Chinese [Mandarin or Shanghaiese],
how well can you live on $1,000 USD?

:) I'm thinking about coming to Shanghai for awhile ...

... and need to figure out if it is at all possible on a restricted budget.

Feel free to laugh at the idea.

$1000 USD per month??????????? Oh my god.... Of course, it's enough!
