Maybe hades meant 1981 where about 88% is below poverty line.  6.5% in 2012.

Most probably true since it is 1981.  And 1.90 at that time is very big in China.  China's stuff is so cheap then.

Talked to an old guy this morning and somehow ventured into this topic.  He told me back then China's stuff very cheap.  He paid less than 1RMB to take a train ride from Beijing to Badaling (still in Beijing, just not in the city) a distance of about 70km.

He did mention that back then 1RMB is > 1SGD.

Surprised

The World Bank began tracking poverty in China in 1981. In that year, 88.3 percent of China’s population lived on less than $1.90 a day (roughly 870 million people). Push the threshold up a little bit and poverty in China was even more striking: 99.1 percent of China’s population lived on less than $3.10 a day (over 980 million people).
