Recently, the “middle class” has once again become one of the hot search terms. The word first appeared in Aristotle’s “Politics” and later became the concept of economics. Aristotle said that the city-state economy will inevitably have two classes of rich and extremely poor. The richest people will inevitably be dictatorial, and the extremely poor will inevitably be turbulent. Only the middle class will have a moderate attitude. They will neither It is a stabilizer for the city-state economy to hate the rich and not to be hated by the poor.
Today, 51% of the world’s population lives in cities and controls more than 90% of global wealth. Unexplained people are alarmist, always exclaiming that the middle class will be “bankrupt”. In fact, everyone in the middle class may be eliminated, but the middle class is always there, and it is an eternal group in the urban economy.
“Looking at the little friends around me, they have become a family, they are nearly 30 years old, and they are still squatting on the journey of making down payment. Looking at the salary card, thinking about the girlfriend’s bag, the wife’s house, the eyes It’s a bit fuzzy, only work hard to expect a raise…” This is a network of sighs that have caused many urban office workers to resonate.
The rate of rising wages lags far behind the rise in housing prices and prices. The rising cost of living further exacerbates people’s economic pressures, which makes office workers’ demand for salary increases more and more urgent. But not everyone’s hard work can be recognized by the company. Even if you are fortunate enough to get a promotion, but want to greatly improve the quality of life through the growth of wages, it is definitely not an easy task for most office workers. Faced with the problem of “how to increase income”, passively “sit and wait for a raise” is clearly not the only standard answer.
“It is difficult to raise salary” or become “normal”
Women’s entrepreneurship has become a reality
Under the background of mass entrepreneurship and innovation, women entrepreneurial groups account for a large proportion, and they have also contributed their own strength in promoting the development of China’s socialist cause.
On the road to entrepreneurship, women are not allowed to make eyebrows, and women can also find a place in the business world. Wang Yajun of Longhu Real Estate and Dong Mingzhu of Gree Electric Appliances are very famous female entrepreneurs. In addition, in many well-known companies, there are also outstanding female partners, such as Huawei Chairman Sun Yafang, Ant King Jin Peng Chairman Peng Lei, Didi Travel President Liu Qing, etc., are typical representatives in this regard. Among the world’s self-made female rich, China accounts for two-thirds, ahead of the United States and the United Kingdom. In 2017, the world’s richest woman is also a Chinese. There is no doubt that the success of Chinese women in the business world has become the biggest bright spot in economic development.
In the era of physical financialization, we no longer rely on land plus labor, and we are less dependent on resources. In the final analysis, more and more new economies are creating wealth that is connected to data, platforms, credit and users.
The turning point in China’s economic growth was in 2007, with a growth rate of 13.5% in 2007 and a decline since then. What is the result of this decline? I think it is the optimization of the industrial structure, and the optimization criteria are two: the first is that the proportion of the tertiary industry has increased year by year; the second is that the proportion of the new economy has increased year by year.
