No change also cannot
Too fast also cannot.

People prefer to live in urban slumps than in rural poverty.

But it is probably a stupid choice

Those who stay back in the rural life will probably have a happier, healthier and longer life than those who live in urban slums.

Lot of people left move until china reach the same level of urbanization(80-90%) as in the west (well not only). Rich countries urbanize,Too many farmers doesn't make anyone rich.

I am not sure 51% is correct per centage.

but why do we all need to move to live in cities ?

That figure was quoted in the Western media and they aired a piece on China along with it .......

I suppose the problem is if you are a poor farmer you will still want to earn lots of money for your children's tertiary education and associated costs ........

Chinese parents must be the most caring in the world when it comes to this, and life in the city can yield what is relatively 'big money' when compared to farming a small family patch ........

So to a person from the countryside the way forward is working in the city ........


Of course in rich countries many people dream of living in the countryside because they can afford to move there and just relax .........
