Is this good or is it bad?Now if you were to be literal about it and honestly answer the question you would say it is a good chart. For it shows that everybody's income per capita is increasing. How could this be bad? How could anybody complain? People are better off than they were before.
Of course leave it to the left to find something to complain about.
For you see while rural incomes are going up, they are not going up as fast as urban incomes.
And this is a bad thing in the world of socialism.
Thus, the emphasis is no longer on whether or not people are better off than they were before. Oh, no, that would be too simple. It's about the fact that other people are more better off than others.
Thus you get retarded measurements like the gini coefficient which leftists will always point to as conclusive proof that the system is failing, despite everybody doing better. And in the case of China, the gini coefficient has been rising showing a widening gap between rural incomes and urban incomes.
What gets me is all the layers of irony afoot here.
A "communist" country is complaining about income distribution, which was brought on by effectively implementing a radically free-market economic system, which has brought standards of living up for everybody.
Heads must be swimming in China's "Communist" Party.
