Main Opnions

"Since 30 years of reform and opening up, we have contracted and simplified the concept of wealth unprecedented in human history. In these 30 years, in the eyes of most people, wealth is equal to money, or wealth is equal to material. But in the history of mankind, wealth has never been such simplified. "


Economic and social development has neglected some important issues and changed some concepts, such as success. Qian Wenzhong said: "In the past 30 years, the material pursuit of our nation has been inspired, and even given examples to society. It seems that the sign of success is to have more money. "

The materialized social demonstration effect finally produced social problems that cannot be ignored. Qian Wenzhong said: "There are many problems in our economy, there are various injustices, there are gaps between urban and rural areas, and gaps between the east and the west. It's much bigger at any time. As society develops and people's living standards improve, it's getting harder and harder for us to laugh. "
