Driver and owner were both Chinese and the British did not give much away. It is the long term planning that is the key to their success. A man will work 2 jobs and his wife will also work just so their son can go to university. Do they expect their son to study hard, you bet.

The Central Committee people have no problems retiring. Their children are fantastically wealthy, and will take care of their parents. It’s shoving the wealth down to the poorest of the Chinese that is going to take more effort.

It is the short term view that is driving the US towards poverty.
It was only 50 years ago that Kennedy spoke of a nation that would bear any burden. What happened to the USA.

Just listen to the response from a 22 years handicapped young man, that move the heart of the world audience.
It is impossible for China to remain as an ordinary country with such vast talents.
