To Have and Have Not [electronic resource]: Wealth and Poverty in the New China

Summary
Every year this nation's economy struggles to absorb millions of the unemployed, while the rich move to gated communities with private schools and tennis courts. That might sound like America, but it isn't. This Wide Angle documentary studies the new China, once the home of Mao's rigidly imposed social equality-and today, a member of the World Trade Organization containing both staggeringly wealthy and tragically destitute citizens. The country's commitment to private enterprise and free markets may reshape China more in a single year than most countries change in a decade. This eye-opening program illustrates the effect of that dynamic on the people of China.
