"It's similar to Longhua Temple in the Puxi district"
Your photo does not show the Longhua Temple but the Jing'an Temple.
The cause of the economic crisis is the policy of cheap money. Artificially low interest rates mean a culture of debt and inflation. This follow economic collapse. The profiteers of such a system speak a you that the causes are different. But that is not correct. Ludwig von Mises understood our monetary system. But the mainstream suppressed his findings.

Top-level blueprint for integrated transport in Yangtze River Delta takes shape
BEIJING, Aug. 8 (Xinhua) -- The integration of Yangtze River Delta has been upgraded to a national-level strategy with transport as a starting point.
China’s Ministry of Transport (MoT) delivered initial draft of the Plan for Higher Quality Integrated Development of Regional Transport in Yangtze River Delta to the National Development and Reform Commission in May. The two departments solicited the opinions of relevant parties and will release the plan soon, according to a report of Economic Information Daily.
Centering on the high-quality integrated development of rail system, highway, harbor and shipping, civil aviation facilities and postal service in the Yangtze River Delta, efforts will be made to build world-class airport cluster, port cluster and traffic network.
That means substantial capital input. According to data of the MoT, in the first half of 2019, as much as 285.5 billion yuan was invested in highway and waterway construction in the Yangtze River Delta.
"Currently, the MoT is working on the research of the investment and financing reform in transport industry, and is supporting the Yangtze River Delta to explore innovative financing scheme," said a source familiar with the matter.
China’s central government upgraded the integrated development of the Yangtze River Delta to a national-level strategy in its work report for 2019, and the CPC Central Committee Political Bureau on May 13 passed the Plan for Integrated Regional Development of the Yangtze River Delta, which heralded a top-level blueprint.
The area, which is home to one sixth of China’s population, yet contributes to nearly one fourth of the national economy, has pressed the fast-forward button of transport development.
Li Xiaopeng, minister of the MoT, said that pushing for higher-quality transport integration in the Yangtze River Delta requires making new breakthroughs in enhancing regional transport services and management, improving institutional and mechanical innovation, and promoting market openness and resource sharing.
The construction of higher-quality integrated harbor and shipping development in the area has taken the lead. The Yangtze River Delta port cluster is the largest one among the five coastal port clusters in China, as Zhoushan Port of Ningbo and Shanghai Port have ranked first in the worldtop one for years in terms of cargo throughput and container throughput respectively. A port cluster with Shanghai as the center and ports in Jiangsu Province and Zhejiang Province as the wings has taken shape.
Shanghai is currently working with Zhejiang Province to push for the development of river-sea container terminal in north of Xiaoyangshan, aiming for earlier commencement, said Zhang Lin, deputy director of Shanghai Traffic Commission.
Shanghai will work to develop sea-railway transport, speed up the construction of Shanghai-Nantong Railway, bring railway to Waigaoqiao Port area, and build an integrated, smooth, efficient, high-grade inland waterway network in the Yangtze River Delta, said Zhang.
The plan of a world-class airport cluster in the delta is also being developed. Currently, the strategic plan for coordinated aviation development in the area is being developed: in the future, the new Nantong Airport will be built to become a key part of Shanghai international aviation hub; the functions of aviation hubs in Hangzhou, Nanjing, and Hefei will be improved, and support will be offered to Sunan Shuofang International Airport in building a regional hub airport.
Besides, an integrated rail network and an intensive trunk highway network are forming. Progress has been made in Lianyungang-Huaian-Yangzhou-Zhenjiang railway and other rail projects; interconnection has realized in metro code-scanning in seven cities of the area; new trains have been launched between multiple cities and Shanghai.
