Chinese life goals have shifted from making money to finding meaning, say authors

Image not available

There was a time about 30 years ago when everyone in China dreamt the same dream: to increase the country’s GDP and achieve economic growth. But in modern China individuals now have their own dreams and are no longer thinking about ‘nationhood.’ The new Chinese are looking for meaning in life and are less interested in material wealth, stability and security. Protecting the environment is also seen as more important than economic growth in their eyes, according to authors Alec Ash and Rob Schmitz.
