This article, by young Chinese sociologist Lian Si, was written expressly for «Equilibri». It discusses how the middle class will hardly grow forever. Despite the economic boom, development and consumption at a certain point will stop. The phenomenon, described and defined here as the «ant tribe», is insecurity. The young Chinese are suspended between the middle class dream (owning a car and a home) and their real «new poor» condition.
