Elitism

I used to think that most (not all) people in the society should have access to something which the government is building. But I was naive 🙂 I read this beautiful article about Macau (in the Marathi newspaper Saamna), and how it is China’s ATM. The key things to take away from the article are –

1) Even though the local currency is pataca, the currencies which are allowed in the casinos are Euro, Dollars etc. (the stronger currencies)
2) It is (along with Hong Kong) two special administrative regions of China – so one country two systems. [Even India has special provisions for J&K ;-)]
3) Even Chinese nationals need a visa to visit Macau or Hong Kong (to avoid crowding, WOW).

There is a time and place for everything and the five fingers are not all alike.
