Beijing most equal city


LONDON, Oct 22: Asian cities are among the most equal in terms of income, but inequalities are widening as the income gap between rural and urban areas grows, the UN population programme said in a report on Wednesday.

Beijing is the most equal city in the world, while Jakarta and Phnom Penh also score highly, UN-Habitat said in its annual report on the state of the world cities. Hong Kong is the most unequal city in Asia, while South African cities led by Johannesburg are the most unequal in the world.

Many Asian countries are grappling with expanding income disparities between rural and urban areas, which is fuelling migration to cities and threatening social harmony, the report said.

The United Nations says inequalities in income and in access to adequate shelter can lead to a reduction in economic efficiency and spark social unrest.

UN-Habitat head Anna Tibaijuka told a news conference in London that she was concerned the global financial crisis would aggravate the inequalities and could even lead to rioting as people struggled to pay the rent.

you cannot have a harmonious society if people are not secure in their homes,she said.

and if you cannot pay the rent, you are not secure in your home.The study also found that more than a third of urban dwellers in Asia live in slums. It said concentrations of slums throughout Asia varied widely, with the highest concentration in southern Asia.

Asian cities are also among the most vulnerable in the world to their surrounding environment.

Eighteen out of 20 of the largest cities in the region are located on the coast or on a river bank or delta, putting them at risk from rising water levels, the report said.

LMAO, Beijing is the most equal city in the world???? You must be kidding me.

Just take take a look at those two million FREE cars provided to Chinese government officers in Beijing and you can see how fair and equal Beijing is. The major reasons why international companies open branches in Beijing is because it is closed to the Chinese government. The foreigner believe that the connections and networking to the central government is the most important factor to do business in China.

The coastal cities in China do look like developed countries with the state of art infrastructures. But Beijing and Shanghai are two black holes built on top of the "blood" money from other provinces.

Once equal business tax and equal polices are implemented in China, you will see how these two cities decline without direct investments from the central banks.

American cities as unequal as African and Latin American cities according to UN-HABITAT's new State of the World's Cities Report 2008/9: Harmonious Cities

Press Release

October 23, 2008

United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) P.O. Box 30030, Nairobi 00100, Kenya E-mail: [email protected] Website: http://www.unhabitat.org

Major cities in the United States, such as Atlanta, New Orleans, Washington D.C., Miami, and New York, have the highest levels of inequality in the country, similar to those of Abidjan, Nairobi, Buenos Aires, and Santiago. At the other end of the world, Beijing is considered to be the most equal city in the world while, on average, the most egalitarian cities in the world are located in Western Europe.

Currently I don't have a very accurate number of government cars in Beijing.

But according to the following post, there were already 620,000 government cars in Beijing in 2006. Considering the double digit growth rate of auto sales in China, I bet it is very safe to say there are at least 1,000,000 government cars in Beijing right now.

Compared to 380,000 government cars in the whole U.S., Beijing's officers should feel shame about this number

=================================
如果说这是2005年的数据,并且韩国国家小,与中国没有可比性,那么不妨与美国比较。美国联邦政府拥有38万辆各型公车。一年的公车支出高达17亿美元。这一数字让美国国会议员很震惊——参议员苏珊·柯林斯说:“联邦政府每年居然要在车队上花费17亿美元,这令我感到震惊。”苏珊·柯林斯并要求政府总审计局对联邦政府的公车使用情况展开调查。苏珊·柯林斯的震惊让身为中国人的笔者也很震惊,与中国数百万辆公车相比,美国38万辆各型公车简直“小巫见大巫 ”,与中国公车费用每年消耗约3000亿元相比,区区17亿美元何足道也?倘若苏珊·柯林斯是中国的一名人大代表,不知道是什么反应?

可以断言,在公车畸多的前提下,即便封存50%的公车,也不会党政机关工作。一个众所周知的例子是,2006年,中非合作北京峰会在北京召开,由于实施了交通管制,大约有49万辆公车被封存,原本有"首堵"之称的首都北京"交通顺畅,秩序井然",不出所料的是,"49万辆公车入库封存,各机关事业单位没有因此而受到丝毫影响"。正如北京市委党校后勤部门负责人所则称:"这次尝试(限制公车),我们工作实际上一点没有受影响。”


  到底是该封存30%还是50%乃至更多公车,应该算清一笔账。2006年时,北京大约封存49万辆公车,而当时据报道,北京市全市公车大约62万多辆,应该说封存比例相对较高——接近80%了。封存如此之高的比例,结果仍是“各机关事业单位没有因此而受到丝毫影响",由此可见封存公车的空间还有很大,由此也就牵扯到一个最直接的命题:中国到底需要多少辆公车?

Man, I have to say loser's barking is truly hilarious! Way to entertain the crowd, buddy.

Beijing and Shanghai are two great cities in China, but hardly the only two. From north to south, Dalian, Tianjin, Qingdao, Hangzhou, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou are all great cities, to just name a few. If you get a chance to visit Chengdu and Chongqing, you'll realize how many modern cities there are in China.

For the fellow forumers, let's appreciate the beautiful and artistically designed Beijing subway stations.

Ignore those 2 garbage bags. Don't debate morons (you know who they really are and what they really want). Simply let them dry.

So, it's not 2 million anymore, just 1 million by your own estimate.
