I wonder how it was experiencing these 20 years of growth.
Today I see so many wealthy people who drive around in Mercedez and Bmw's. 10 years ago they were very few private car on the road.
How did these people get wealthy so fast? Over a night? Business owners? Real estate? Because they are so many maybe one third of the population that are really wealthy there has to be a fairly common answer to this question. I am curious because i am fascinated by the growth.
Shanghai in 1999... can anyone believe that there were only 2 subway lines in operation? The fact that back then, the subway was more of a novelty than the transportation backbone of the city. Today, if you shut down the Shanghai metro, the city would grind to a halt. That's mind boggling.
