Who envy who?

An article about the widening gap of the rich and the poor in the news today caught my eye. The picture of a Ferrari vs a 300Y locally made bicycle, and that is suppose to highlight the difference in economic status among the Chinese.

I beg to differ. In traffic grid-lock Beijing, the bike is definitely faster than the Ferrari around the city. Its got no worries getting a parking spot. Much more reliable than the hi-tech super complicated technology laden Ferrari. Infinitely lower running costs. Won't get kidnapped by the gangsters. And most of all, a far healthier option of travelling around the Chinese capital.

Now who is envying who?
