First please finish reading the news below before you answer the above question.
A Chinese girl, at her 20s, nicknamed Chen yun, worked as a bar attendant. On 29th, April, 2012, she came to work as usual but she never walked away like before. A customer rewarded 500 yuan for each glass of wine and Chen Yun won 4900 yuan that year before she was sent to hospital and died there 7 hours later.  It makes me confused that we Chinese are become richer or poorer to some extent.

A 32-year-old man in the US recently died after eating a few hundred cockroaches to win a $850 python.  What it says about Americans?

If you'd offer me 500 € per glass, I'd also drink 10 glasses of wine. But I don't see why such a small amount should kill... the poor girl must have been really sensitive to alcohol.
Generalizing tihs event to entire China seems a little odd, though.

That doesn't sound like too good a deal for her.
But at least she choose wine over cockroaches.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?
