    Fake news.
    According to the definition of the poverty line, people whose annual income is lower than US$337, are considered to be poor. Judged against this standard, China is a model for the world in poverty reduction as its last 4 decades of reform have created a "miracle" of reducing poverty occurrence from 97.5% in 1978 to 3.1% in 2017.
    Of course you can lift three quarters of a billion people out of poverty when your standards are so low. Really now? A Chinese person making an annual income of $400 isn’t poor anymore?

    Get out of here with this propaganda.

    The rest is history: Kong very skillfully discovered our group (that was not even hidden) and spent long wet days exploring every thread, going through every post and stalking our entire stack byte by byte, until he found about 2 or 3 questionable instances, and proceeded to make the dish richer with creative additions like hardcore lolicon porn or the infamous star children pics -whatever it's supposed to mean- and soon after i logged in to me being the Al Capone of children trafficking, ordering constant refill of actual holo 3D virtual reality cp videos, and something about emma watson whose meaning and origin i've yet to understand, since it's definitely the most bizarre claim on top of a cake of more or less unbelievable bullshit. At that point, i wasn't much shocked of Kong, cuz he was just being the slimy Kong we all know and love, but of GP, who i've always seen as the scales balancer between me and Pops in the past, and now he'd be very unbalancedly deploying all his rethorics against me and that circle of people, making a long shade of made up stuff, banning us one by one without giving the chance to speak, hiding the group from everyone's eyes with all the evidence it contained, and proceeding to a fervent damnatio memoriae for still long time after the ban.

    Why is it anytime good news comes out about china, everyone's all like "fake news" or tries to discredit it

    yet all bad news is just regarded as irrefutable...


    Get out of here with this propaganda.
    Do you know what poverty is like in china?

    400$ may not be alot to US standards, but nearly everything in the US is more expensive, it's not exactly that comparable.

    Was expecting China to have pulled further ahead already

    Edit: I just checked and apparently its even just 337 dollar

    That was the amount I spend for Elisabeths and mine Birthday dinner at a restaurant

    Pretty sure we cant apply western standards to China yet. If they lifted so many people out of poverty thats good for them, however I am very shaken that the annual poverty line for a country which aims to become a global leader is the equivalence of me eating fancy once.

    I must say i am baffled by the fact that someone would date Tifa, or that someone like Tifa is able to put a dude in a friendzone. Like are you really so depleted on the good looking girls? In my country no one would ever even look at her twice. We have 2/1 (Girl/Boy) ratio, and most of the girls are decent looking or hot. We have obese girls but they mostly die alone because even the ugly looking dudes can find a good looking girl if they are just not poor as fuck..

    Dammit I deleted that so I could be saved from your rebuttal.

    I regret ever giving you the opportunity to be more right about anything.

    What truth? The fact that you're an annoying dimwit? Most of your posts are cringe. Nothing worse than a cocky asshole who gets proven wrong and lies to save face. The fact that you have a gold bar pretty much exemplifies that rep is worthless. You are the face of awful modern day TMF posters. SpiRo back into whatever cave you crawled out of, please.

    I spent a good half hour looking into it, and it seems like you would need around $400, per month to live like a poor piece of shit in china.

    Anyway, depending on how you define poverty you're gonna get different rankings. I think the current UN standard is people who earn less than $1.90 a day, apparently in this case China is faring about twice as good as the US according to World Bank (0.7 vs 1.3%, when countries like Belgium Germany or France have 0.0%), but faring much worse if you take 5.50 (I think this is adjusted by cost of living etc) so really estimating what this means is kind of hard. In any case for sure 337$ a year means a very different thing in China since they report 3% here versus 0.7% below 1.9$ a day when adjusted on world bank (or one of them is just wrong)

    400$ a year, how the fuck is that "out of poverty"

    400$ is one of the shittiest monthly wages from where I come from and I am not even from the west, what kind of shitty living standard do people have there?

    This must be a typo mistake or some shit otherwise the poor fuckers be making 30$ a month or something like that

    -

    It was birthday and hence nothing like an ordinary going-out for dinner. Champagine alone was 70 dollar or so.

    Its not like in Germany dinner costs 300 dollar regulary.

    400$ a year? That's slightly more than a buck a day
