Not to say that China doesn't have any problems, but this is a step in the right direction:
"A southwestern Chinese province with the largest impoverished population in the country will relocate more than 100,000 destitute rural residents into modern communities before spring 2013.
The move was part of a poverty alleviation project initiated last year to move 2 million farmers out of the province's poverty-ridden mountainous and desert areas within nine years."
The new homes are near an industrial park and local governments will provide job training to help new residents adapt to their new lives.
This sort of things happens on an increasingly regular basis these days. Shouldn't the US be doing the same?
