Since World War II, globalization came in two stages. From 1945 to roughly 1975, the United States, Western Europe, and Japan上海千花坊品茶微信
achieved steady economic growth, with the benefits of that growth spread widely throughout the population. In F
rance, this period is called “30 glorious years” and in Germany it is known as the “economic miracle”.
The second stage of globalization started in the late 1970s and has continued until today with a process of reform and open上海千花坊
ing-up not only in China but in countries of the former Soviet Union and in India.
This has been great for the world. China alone has lifted more than 850 million peopl
e out of dire poverty. But it has also increased competition faced by workers and companies.上海千花坊品茶微信
The partial globalization of 1945-1975 worked great for average workers in the West. For much of this period, a young perso
n could get a high-paying and apparently secure job in a factory that would allow him to live a middle-income lifestyle.上海千花坊品茶微信
It’s very hard to believe now, but in 1980, the US city with the highest average wage was Flint, Michigan, followed closely by Detroi
t. Other leading cities in terms of wages were Chicago, Houston, Milwaukee, Youngstown and Cleveland – all上海千花坊品茶微信
of which were centers of industry and manufacturing. At that time, San Jose, the center of then quite small Silicon V
alley was fourth, San Francisco sixth, and capital Washington was eighth. New York City did not make the top 10.
Many people in the US and Western Europe look back nostalgically on those 30 years aft
er WWII when artificial limits on global competition protected extremely high-paying manufacturing jo
bs. It is very sad to see only empty, rusting factories where thousands of people used to work.
It’s tempting to use tariffs or other protectionist measures to try to
retain the companies that provide these high-paying manufacturing jobs. But, most o
ften the protections just lead to unproductive companies, declining innovation, and slowing GDP growth.
Yao said that there is no end to learning and that he hopes to achieve a passing score this year so he can become a literature student.
He has written a number of articles on his life in retirement and in 2001 finished a 300,000-word novel.
His favorite universities are Peking University and Beijing Normal University.
For the test, Yao reviewed all subjects by himself and didn’t take any tutorial classes, saying that books are the best teacher.
He studied for about four hours a day, always during the day: “I have to d
o housework. I watch TV at night, paying attention to the current affairs,” he said.
The most difficult subject for him is mathematics. “If I can overcome math, the other subjects are much easier,” he said.
His children support him. He now lives by himself, and isn’t nervous about the ex
am. The test venue is about a kilometer away from his house, and he plans to get there by bus.
