Economist: Dream machines

From the Economist:

China is not yet an auto-culture in the mould of the United States. But it may only be a matter of time

“CHINA has begun to enter the age of mass car consumption. This is a great and historic advance.” So proclaimed the state-run news agency, Xinhua, last year. Environmentalists may feel a twinge of fear at this burgeoning romance with motoring. But a rapid social and economic transformation is under way in urban China, and the car is steering it.
