    People & Power - China: The Orient Excess

    Al Jazeera English

    by Al Jazeera English

    Three decades of economic liberalisation have radically changed the face of China. With the number of Chinese billionaires increasing rapidly (it now has almost as many as the US and is closing in on the top spot), the communist ideals of the past seem to have faded beyond recognition. This revealing film from Jorg Winter and ORF looks at some of the possible consequences of China's growing love affair with money and wonders what has happened to the Marxist principles that the nation once paid homage to.
