They'll peddle their wares, or get a job, or open a restaurant in one of those 'crappy' villages. And they'll eat those 6RMB noodles (which are, by the way, often of a higher quality than it that expensive restaurant)...

Alternatively, China could do what many cities in the United States has done, and gentrify. They can build low rent housing far outside the city, which wile being of higher quality, greatly limits the economic opportunity of its residents.
See, you answered by yourself. Obviously a farmer can't affort living in a highrise in the middle of a CBD (which is the area of the short crippled houses a few pages back), the renting here is almost the same as renting in Europe, so he would need 3 salaries only for the rent.

The solution is clear, not only in US, in any part of the world housing on the outskirts of the big cities is way cheaper. Obviously then having to use 1-2h transport each way/day is what the high-class try to avoid

no, that is a horrible solution. segregating the poor only exasperates the problem. affordable housing should be offered IN the city, and people of different incomes should live together. then the lower class will have a much better chance of becoming financially successful, and social problems will be alleviated. although, there's a specific ratio of different incomes required for this to work, so i don't know how much could be done in the context of china considering their proletariate population and the magnitude of rural to urban migration.

simple design, yet elegant. Less is more in this case. Very epic tower.

Beautiful building. That IFC lettering takes some of the classiness away but the building is still one of the best in the world in my opinion and by far the best in Mainland China.
