Looks like a very complicated way to me to link three stations at what seems to be an airport.

The new airport in the south of Beijing. You can see that this line is connecting the two airports.

Cheap labour, fewer environmental regulations, and no NIMBYs (or if there are, the government doesn't usually listen to them).

I wish we had no NIMBYS, a larger workforce (not cheaper), and no politicians here in seattle. We could get our 3 mile tunnel done by 2010 instead of 2016

Industrious workers, sound city-plan, and enough budget.

beijing's subway stations looks really nice, but somehow they give me impressions of them being too artificial,

with the cheap fare and short interval between the trains, i wonder how much the government subcidies this industry,

from wikipedia

The lower [¥2] fare policy caused the Beijing Subway to run a deficit of ¥600 million in 2007, which is expected to widen to ¥1 billion in 2008. On a total of 655 million rides delivered in 2007, the government's subsidy averages to be about ¥0.92 per ride.

i think that is what we pay our taxes for,chinese government holds huge assets,and should share more with the people,beijing's subway subsidy is a good sign,but definitely not enough

Shanghai is definately not enough. At least they try to make Beijing's subway stations pretty. Shanghai is more funcitional but Beijing has more aestetically pleasing stations. at least on lines 5, 8, and 10

beijing's subway system moved more passangers than shanghai,so it is not just for aestetical purpose.

That happens in many cities and does not give a real inkling to the actual headways for the lines. Do you actually know what the headways are in order to justify making ludicrous statements such as "shortest intervals in the world"?

This map is absolutely stunning. What's the total length and schedule? I remember news about 1200km+ in a very long term. There are at least 4 branches "in bold". Why?

Agreed. I want to know as well. Simply stating "oh trains just follow back to back" isn't very convincing.
