|A Vanishing Face of Shanghai|
So in order for Shanghai to become a successful global city itself, the Chinese central government instituted policies that encouraged more foreign residents, including favorable tax incentives and easy resident visas. It's a bold move on the part of the Chinese government, but bold moves separate the wheat from the chaff. It's no wonder China has been so successful within the last 20 years. It makes me think of the contrast between the United States of the late 19th and early 20th centuries and the United States of today with its anti-immigration sentiment.
