If you wait under a bridge in China for more than an hour for a homeless person, many passers-by will think you are the homeless person LOL!!

Another thing is, Chinese people would always prefer to save some money, in case some unexpected accident happens, like losing their job, or someone in the family gets very sick and needs to be hospitalized for a long period, their life won't be dragged down. But in the US a lot of people don't save some of their salary for the future, so they are always in danger of losing everything.

One of the things im surprised about China is, there are no slums! You would think that a country this big would have slums in less developed areas but wow.. amazing.

It is very difficult to believe this YouTuber, as I got taught that only a DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY can create an ecosystem to eradicate homelessnes and poverty . Plus China, officially is a DEVELOPING NATION . Can you imagine how wealthy China will be when it becomes a DEVELOPED NATION - HOLY COW.

Jason, you and Jiao are both important asset for China: introducing to the world the real China. For being a socialist country, the government devoted much resources to "eliminate" poverty, build modern infrastructure and "lift" the poor. Chinese, rich and poor, now enjoys their life much better than 40 years ago, thanks to the reform. Chinese government has been doing a good job building up the country, better than US for sure.

When I first visited LA city in the USA, I was shocked to see so many people sleeping on the streets, with bags of things which they would push around in supermarket carts during the day. Mind you, this is downtown LA. The message it sent is very stark and depressing of a society’s widening wealth gap and general indifference to the plight of people. It’s almost like the society is saying: Good luck if you are poor you must be lazy and are now a loser! Pretty much the motto of the country.

Places like SF or LA living cost is prohibitively high, even though you have a full time professional job, you probably still can't afford to rent, let alone the jobless ones, so being homeless is the only "Hobson's Choice" (= no choice). LA "skid row" has miles of miles of so-called tents, where the number of homeless ppl (unemp, addicted, "sjw", "artists", experimenters, beggars, mental...) is probably 200k !!!

In China you have a government that works and represents the people. In the US, you have a government that does not work and also does not represent the people despite elections. Reason is gerrymandering and low turnout with voter suppression. People who are stuck with political theory and idolize liberal democracy, should be pragmatic and look at the practice.

BSB or CNN or New York Times will never bother to do a piece about this. Demonizing China seems the only thing they do when China is concerned.

Very appropriate video, I just got home, was grocery shopping (I live in Montreal, Canada). The supermarket is around 4 blocks from my house, I live downtown; Oh dear, the homeless, the drunks and the junkies are taking over the city. There are streets that reek of piss, and with this heat, the situation is dire. Disgusting.
Visions of China, 1 day ago
I live in China on a University teachers salary - around 10,000 rmb a month (£1,129/$1538) I live in a rented 4,000,000 rmb apartment overlooking the Qiantang River just on the outskirts of Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province - which is a rich province. (you can see my apartment on my channel) and I pay 4000rmb (£451/$615) a month rent of which my university subsidises just over half of that. And I live a good and comfortable life with my wife (who doesn't work) and like Jason, I have yet to see a homeless person, drug addict, psychotic person on the streets, the only drunk people I have ever seen on the streets are the foreign expats.

When I grew up in China, I had never seen any homeless people in any Chinese cities. Although the average income of the people in China is lower than many western countries, most Chinese owe their houses, and there is no need to pay house tax and council tax, the utility bills are very cheap as well, food and other service costs are cheap too, so the people's living standards are actually no worse than many developed countries.

I was waiting for Jason's "Here we are..." spin on why the streets of China is clear of homeless by the BSBBC.

My half brother lives, works and my sister in law is Chinese . If you ask me if China is advance I can say it is true! I still use my ATM and cash whereas they use digital pay as the norm in China. You can even buy stuff from a vendor at the flea market using just your smartphone! China has more people using digital pay than any country in the world. I just wish we were more adaptable to new technology and embrace it but some people are just not use to changes but China is open to it.

Watching your videos has convinced me I'm in the wrong country. Take the topic of this video for example; I just got back from a walk in the US. I was asked for change from several people, the first one, I only had a dollar on me, so I gave it to him to be nice. He immediately asked me for drugs when I handed him the money. I've also noticed a distinct lack of roadside trash in your videos. The egg was cracked, true. However, the trash I saw on my walk was empty liquor bottles, drug needles & random piles of miscellaneous junk. Normally I'd pick the trash up, but I stopped doing that because of COVID. Seriously! Who leaves used drug needles at a playground where children play? Anyway, I hope I can explore China someday. Keep up the great work!

The city where you live has relatively high housing prices, and my hometown is also a Tier 5 city, which may be a bit smaller than the city where you live. But the rent for a year there is only 800 U.S. dollars

People help each other in terms of money. in most cases family members and relatives help each other financially so that they won’t be homeless.

Jason, You nailed it when you answered your mother-in-law's phone call for dinner in local dialect (which I speak). Enjoy your life in China, it probably does not get any better than that.

It's all about a more equitable distribution of a nation's wealth. Only a good and strong govt can do it.

My experience in L.A. was shocking. Walking down Hollywood Blvd, there were trashes everywhere. A big black trash bag was blowing into air and floating everywhere. Venice beach had homeless tents everywhere. That was a little over 2 years ago.

Also important to note is the cultural difference. One of my relatives was down on their luck, practically the whole clan pitched in to help, even distant relatives.

Thank you for showing the real China; Chinese government take good care of their citizens even the foreigners stuck in China. We make the westerners jealous because we have a government of over 90% approval rating and US politicians are too busy to be the " world police or the righteous " instead of taking care of their own people and problems. Their agenda is always money in their own pockets.

Jason is right, Chinese families are usually closed knit, and parents are always willing to help as much as they can.

High living cost is not an excuse to have so many people living on the street. Singapore is a high living standard county and you will find difficult to see anyone living on the street. Homeless people is a very common issue in western county.

Hi Jason and ALL ! I've Been to China Quite few Times. I Did Never, Ever, See a Homeless / Beggar Person There : Shanghai , Beijing, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Kunming, Guilin, Yangshuo, Lijiang...Even in Remote Areas Like the Small Village of Qiaotou in Yunnan Province, Where I Started The Insane 3 Days Tiger Leaping Gorge Trek. One of the Reasons is Because Chinese People Are Happy With Their Government Huge Investments Everywhere. Another Reason is There Are Jobs Available Everywhere→→→Everywhere.
