I’d had this article, “Less income disparity ‘helps economy'”, in line to write something about because China faces a considerable problem in the divide between rich and poor, east and west, and it’s important to understand this in order to understand China today.

And one can read an article written 50 years ago and think, “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.”
