Eccentric Chinese tycoon Chen Guangbiao took out a full-page bilingual advertisement in the New York Times, inviting underprivileged Americans to a charity lunch and offering cash handouts.



What do you think of his behaviour? An eye-catching show or a pilanthropy? If it is a pilanthropy, should he do all these in such a high profile?

The advertisement is also placed in The Wall Street Journal. This is not the first time for Chen to advertise. In 2013, he advertised in the New York Times, warning Abe Shinzo not to visit Yasukuni Shrine. In 2012, he advertised in the New York Times, declaring that Diaoyu Island is an integral part of China.
