Summary
China may be the world's next superpower, but its wild economic growth doesn't tell the whole story. This program reveals the widening gap between Chinese urban and rural lifestyles and the escalating pressure for government action to increase educational and career opportunities in remote areas. Interviews with city dwellers whose affluence surprises even them-and with villagers struggling for basic necessities-combine with data-mapped GDP analysis to create an accurate economic portrait of the country. Abstaining from political judgment, the video raises questions about competing in the global marketplace without adequate domestic support systems
