Should we discuss the general well-being of average Chinese citizens?
perhaps "salary increment ratio" .vs. "inflation" could help on understanding the average level.

Who is grasping the great benefits from economic growth?
What should be done about people leaving behind?
i cannot answer those big questions.

Why not? Don't you think you should? They're rather important.

More to the point, they're political, and as such precisely the kinds of questions that should be discussed also by the everyman in participatory politics.

The fact is that hundreds of millions of Chinese have been taken out of poverty in the last 20 years. That is very good. Some people have become very wealthy, but that is not something to worry about, as long as everyone can get work and can get what they need.

The fact is that poverty exists considerably even in developed countries, and the situation is exacerbating.
The 99% movement is an exaggeration.

We are talking about China aren't we? And hundreds of millions of Chinese have been taken out of poverty haven't they? I don't know what the 99% movement is.

The Canadian foreign minister, Chrystia Freeland, once wrote a book called Plutocrats: The Rise of the New Global Super-Rich and the Fall of Everyone Else.
I found the PDF version quite easily:

This is for her as a writer rather than a politician; if any decisions, please stick to the book rather than her other aspects.
The title may tell something.

I cannot read anything on that pdf, I get error 404.

What relevance does it have to my question, which was "And hundreds of millions of Chinese have been taken out of poverty haven't they? ". That can be answered by "yes" or "no".

That graph shows distribution of family wealth in the year 2016, with the bottom 50% owning just crumbs of the entire cake. Needs to show other years to see if things are getting better or worse.
