I dunno, Paul -- you should see what's happening in areas like Chongqing, the
Pearl River Delta (Guangdong-Hong Kong) and Shanghai these days. It would amaze

I don't have permission to post the name of the person who took this, but it's
someone many of you will probably have heard of.

Here's a recent article from The Economist on the Pearl River Delta:

public, but if you get blocked, let me know and I'll post the article).
