Beijing Residents Say Inflation Level Unacceptable

Posted by w_thames_the_d on June 30, 2012

Beijingers are pissed that the red scum who run this dump are not controlling prices, and it is true the price levels are higher than is being reported. Official statistics claim inflation to be less than 5%, but like most statistics from here, its a falsehood.
For instance, i recently bought one of my favorite foods which has increased in price over 30% within two months. In addition i bought fruit nd this is what i discovered
Poor quality apples are $1.1 per pound and decent ones are$1.5. In the Usa, according to the national fruit and vegetable association, apples in the USA ranged from $.8 to $1.1 per pound
Bananas in beijing are $.80 per pound or double the US price of $.4
Grapes are $2.1 while in the USA they are $1.8

The thing to remeber is that chinese are poor, with the average income being about $380 per person per month. And, the typical chinese spends over 40% of their income on food. Thus, inflation hits them harder than it hits us. While we can stomach a twenty cent increase in the price of apples, for the chinese it is unacceptable.

So, uncle chicom needs to get his act together. Claiming to be communist, the reds should have the good of the people at heart. If they do not, and cannot keep inflation incheck, then we will see guys like the murderous Bo Xilai come to power.


Beijing residents are unsatisfied with commodity prices that taken the cost of living in the city to exorbitant levels. A survey released on June 28 by China’s central bank showed 73.1% of Beijing residents said the current level of commodity prices in the second quarter of this year was “high, unacceptable” — a response higher than the national average level of 65.7% and up 11.5 percentage points from the previous quarter.

In Q2, 65.7% of China’s public said that the level of commodity prices was unacceptable, up 2.8 percentage points from the previous quarter.

China is determined to foul up everything they eat, drink and make. Allegedly, master kong, some chinese sweat shop of a company is respusing old tea leaves in its product.
My question is why the freaking Chinese cant be civil and act human? Is it too hard to expect the land of teat lovers to not adulterate that product?
Master Kong, a subsidiary of food and beverage giant Tingyi, which produces several types of tea products, has reportedly being selling its used tea leaves to other companies which sell them again as new, according to the Southern Metropolis Daily.

The Guangzhou newspaper said the used tea leaves are sold to tea factories in Guangzhou, Dongguan and Zhejiang, after being dried and processed, for a few yuan per 500 grams. Millions of kilograms of these tea leaves are produced annually.”
