As for my observations of the last 9 years.

1/
Inflation! The price of things has gone through the roof and I wonder how low and single income families make ends meet!
The family with low incomes do not eat meat often. I saw some of the old wives picked up free bad garbage' leaves from Wallmart.

Those leaves would mixed with little flour to be a soup !

Well it might be fairly cheap but its still a lot of money to an average Chinese worker.  You're not poor if you can readily fork out 1 million yuan.

I was reading a thread put up by Desperado, he's in Beijing working for 6000 RMB per month. He says it would take him 70 years to buy a small apartment on a mortgage.

10 years ago, most of mainland Chinese were living in rural area.

Now, more than half of mainland Chinese are living in cities.
