Delaney Place offers a daily email review of books with the hope of spurring debate, discussion and learning. Sales of the book via their website earn charities a donation. In today’s update the book “China in Ten Words” is reviewed. Here author Yu Hua discusses the lopsided growth of China and the high social costs incurred.
“China’s model of growth is to spend 100 yuan to gain 10 yuan in increased GDP. Environmental degradation, moral collapse, the polarization of rich and poor, pervasive corruption — all these things are constantly exacerbating the contradictions in Chinese society.”
