As a 90's in China, what Li said part is right but part is wrong.

I am not sure where Li's statistics came from, but it must be wrong. Since only about 30% graduates in 2013 get a job and more and more people, especially in Beijing find that it is too difficult to buy a house. Can you imaging that you have to pay 10 million RMB or about 2 million US dollar to buy an apartment about 100 square meters? For me, I have to say I can see little hope. But it is because of the competition. I believe there are so many talented people who can chase their dream, however, for most of us, we see desperation.

    Jul 13 2013: true for some maybe the sky is gray -good point - and for others the truly blind - I suppose the sky has no color at all - but it seems it would still exist. -earth and sky that is. - my point is we've been conditioned to give what many perceive to be a right - or correct answer - what color is the sky? - Blue is the "correct" answer - but as you've pointed out even sight can be deceiving. My point is we may need to revisit what we perceive to be right answers now and again to see if they are in fact correct.
