Unfortunately, coming right after I wrote a positive post about Shanghai, bad news came out last night. A collision in the subway system left hundreds injured in Shanghai. While it’s easy to see this as a perfect example of the dangers of modernizing too fast or whatever likely parable can be applied to China’s economic rise, it’s not the time for gloating about tragedies that happen in China. Don’t glorify China as it’s rising, but don’t kick it when it stumbles, that’s all I’ll say.
