Per capita GDP in 2011 in Hong Kong was US$ 34,000. Under the Brits, US$ 24,000. FACT.
I cannot agree more with some other posters who sometimes call you dumb. Yeah, you are indeed dumb. You know how much 10-years-ago 24k is worth now? Easily multiply by 2-3.

You mean Chinese people who refused the evil dictator called Mao?

I thought those were called Taiwanese.

Lets just call them Chinese then.

READ your article, Miro-tard:
"But analysts say the democrats also have themselves to blame for their failure to pose a more coherent challenge to the pro-Beijing elite, due to petty divisions within their ranks over technical issues."
Petty divisions? That sounds like a true democrazy to me!

Do you really need to go to that many places? Most travel writers have been to 40 something countries or territories.

And mainland China's passport is good for 80 countries / territories visa free.

If only they let the public get those passports instead of forcing people to run to the American embassy as a way of escaping the country.
