Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We were in China a couple of years ago, and were struck by how ordinary people are aspiring to a nice apartment and a car. When I was there in the early 1980s, they were aspiring to a pack of cigs and maybe a voucher letting them travel to the city for a day. It's impossible to fault people for wanting to be comfortable.
