There exists a thin line between financial responsible spending and pure frivolity. China, just as Hong Kong, is an example of this. The throngs of international money coming by boat, plane and truck have set port within the confines of flashy sport cars and luxurious apparel. Nonetheless, while it may seem perfectly shangri-la, it is often just a surface. Follow the Lamborghini to find it parked outside of a 35-story tower of miniscule studio apartments. But hey, don’t judge, we all window dress and dress-to-impress. Whether it’s in $500 jeans or account manipulation, everyday is a delicate balance between what is real… and what is real to others. [Jack Mur]
