The Aftermath

There’s little time left before the 2008 Olympics finally arrive in Beijing, but what will happen after it? Will there be an anti-climax? Will there be a backlash? Will there be billions of unpaid debts? Farmers who have abandoned their heritage and their lands to come to the city and build for the Olympics; children that have been left to care for by the elderly and the neighbours while the parents are trying to make a little profit off this pompous event; even greater gap between the rich and the poor who were offered little compensation for their lost homes. China is putting on a great propaganda campaign for itself ahead of the Games, but what will come after the Games is what will tell the true story of China’s development.
