Glamour and glitz was the order of the day at the Shanghai event, with the industry's big hitters competing fiercely to show off their most advanced and luxurious models in the world's largest car market.

New York, previously synonymous with opulence, seemed more interested in gasoline prices than fancy new designs.

***

A Chinese business newspaper commented that Shanghai was now playing a key role in the luxury car sector.

***

The atmosphere at the New York event, which opened its doors a day after the Shanghai show on April 20, was more sober-minded. The key phrase seemed to be "40 miles per gallon."

***

Mark Fields, executive vice president at Ford Motor Co., in charge of the Americas, said car dealerships were reporting that fuel efficiency was a vital issue for an increasing number of customers.

More than 1 in 10 Chinese monthly income are below $18.

American poverty line is monthly income below $350~$400.

More young Chinese are going to be mortgage slaves.

More young American are going out from mortgage slaves.

Why do rich class in a rich society (measured by individual wealth) focuse on fuel eficiency.

Why do rich class in a poor society  (measured by individual wealth) focuse on luxury?
