    …

The middle classes, in English, is “Middle …

Class”。 If you press the original English literal translation, it should be “middle class” or “middle class”. In China, some rumors, probably for ideological reasons, the term middle class seems to be for officials studiously avoided. Guess, maybe because in the Chinese version of Marx and Engels ‘ writings, the bourgeois revolution period of the bourgeoisie has translated the “middle class”, or legend, is because “eight or nine” after foreign media touted China’s “middle class” … … But all of this, just guessing, and that’s it …

  Officially official in Chinese literature, the standard term is “middle income groups”, this cap on related keywords and social distribution “income”, in fact, is “property” exclusion of concepts. However, the interpretation of modern society in sociological theory, the concept of the middle class can not be avoided. So was first in academics, to discuss social stratification and class divisions.。 Sociological theory, such a society can maintain dynamic stability …

  Sociological discussion on middle-class, has aroused media interest. Widely reported in the media, opened people’s eyes, found in the middle class in the world really is “Xiang Bobo”. Sources said that in India, people like finalists in the Middle seem to have relatively stable jobs and incomes, it finds itself in the middle. So, there’s a saying, India’s middle class has more than 90%.

  Home to distract again, how many middle-class in China? Land art, Chinese Academy of social sciences researcher-led research team showed that in 1999, China accounted for 15% of the middle class; in 2008, reached 23%. Thus, Lu suggested that at that rate, if the annual rate of 1%, by 2025, China’s middle class reached 40%, at that time, “olive type society” basically taken shape. However, when the news media, has generated widespread in China does not agree with and even rebound. In particular young people, that “middle class” …

  In measuring whether a person or a family in China, as far as the assets, the basic standards are “House car”. However, many young people believe that is a loan to buy my own House, car, bank account ran up a butt. If you want to figure out the assets and liabilities, he was “negative-value” assets–that would sully the reputation of middle. Therefore, it is not, it is considered to be the Middle, the “middle class” Word spread like wildfire …

  First of all, take a look at the statistics of income data situation is not optimistic. In 2012, the 20% of Chinese urban residents ‘ “middle income households” earning average 22419, 20% of “above average” annual income 29814. On average each month, “medium” is 1868, “upper intermediate” is 2485. This monthly income, seemed recognized “House car” production standards, it is a far cry.。.

  Secondly, as far as the international experience, the civil service should be the backbone of the middle class and professionals. In General, their professional reputation was high. However, in today’s China, and occupational prestige of these two groups are in steep decline. Civil servants bear the brunt, on the NPC, CPPCC Member He Xiang long proposal to increase the salaries of civil servants, suffered more than 20,000 Internet users slammed the result. What members have to sighed: “now the masses and how serious is this antagonism between groups of civil servants. “Professionals, teachers and medical staff are in the majority. In recent discussions on policies concerning people’s livelihood, some experts and scholars are often to be heard on the Internet known as “beasts” and “brick house”.。 These phenomena suggest experts and medical workers were in a career dilemma. From a macro point of view, these social groups are actually the scapegoat, they are subjected to public dissatisfaction with the policy mistakes and frustration …

  Defining the middle class, in theory, there are three criteria, namely, income, occupational prestige and personal identity. From the above analysis, in Chinese society, the middle class in these three areas are in a State of distress, which leads to the special circumstances of an odd-“middle”.

  In China, some scholars blame middle-class “does not live up to expectations”-“irregularity of middle class in China came into being in a comprehensive restructuring, led them with distinct values of cynicism and opportunism tendency. They do not really believe in something, do not believe in democracy, also does not believe that the rule also does not believe that market, they simply believe what benefits “–it may be a mistake …

  In fact, on the whole, the middle class is not a justice or even representative of the radical force. Say the middle class is the Foundation for stability, precisely because of the inertia of middle-class – conservative and reluctant to change the status quo. Why? Because they have a clique of property. Mao Zedong’s “farm” the assessment is that there are many tantanguanguan, so much so that even in a violent social unrest, their tantanguanguan were broken. When such a class constitute the majority community, and social stability. Therefore, from the ideological point of view, for the middle class, “not interested” is really called “on the West’s ‘ Ocean when ‘.”.

  Of course, when middle-class radical, as they are deprived of the property facing danger, they’ll try anything to combination. As we all know, conquer the world, and the world of the Communist Party, is turning farmers. This means that, when making the abject poverty in the past pingunong the land reform turned into a room to stand up when farmers, in order to defend the “victory”, which shows the story of liberation. Therefore, protection of private property is a community foothold, and marketeers, worse than others: the private property of the middle class, is the cornerstone of social stability …

  Beginning of the reform, Deng Xiaoping made “off” concept, which is not based on the historical experience of conclusion? The so-called “well-off” is “medium family financial circumstances in living standards” and “middle class”, whose meaning is “standard of living, property in the intermediate levels of society for the advancement of social classes.” This essential ambiguity between the two, please?
