Though from Global Times, one would like to know that if this report is correct then how will it affect China, in so far as: 1. Political stability. 2. Change in policy to pay attention not only towards the economic resurgence of China as a whole, but also on the social issues as eradicating a. the income gap. b. eradicating poverty. c. improving social security and stability. How has the Hokuo system helped in increasing the gap? It appears to be a very benevolent system where none can 'go under', since all aspects of existence is catered for. What is meant in the report - 'growing gap between monopoly in-dustries and other types'? What is exactly meant in real terms of the report - The gap could widen to five to 10 times if housing, employees' welfare and other forms of income are taken into account, Li told Xinhua. The report states -Zhong Dajun, director of the Beijing Dajun Economy Observe Institute, however, cautioned that any reform would be difficult, as it would involve various interest groups, while "the rights of workers should be strengthened, and their voice should be expressed so as to determine that they are not underpaid." Could this be explained in real terms? The report states - The income gap will not only bring social unrest but also hit the country's economy, Zhong warned. How will social unrest hit the country's economy? Strikes are not allowed I believe.
