"The City of Western Dreams: Shanghai, China" from the Barrett Channel; how China is humiliating the West with return to post-pandemic normal safely
The Barrett Channel (Lee and Oli) presents, “The City of Western Dreams: Shanghai, China” (15 min).
Much of the film shows them having a dinner out in a hotel, after passing the temperature check (which seems to be on the back of the hand once, which does not make sense).
The official link from the Barrett Channel, July 13, 2020.
The film (even through the video title) conveys the idea that in China, with its authoritarian lockdowns to contain the virus in January which were quite severe in their impact on ordinary people, now is back to normal with interesting, almost interplanetary life, why the U.S.A. and U.K. are struggling.
The film also shows a lot of the enormous Shanghai Metro.
Even outdoors, everyone wears a mask, even when not many people are around.
Note the embed from Wikipedia: the Shanghai stock exchange, although China regulates and inflates its stock market a lot more than western countries, a "People's Republic of Capitalism".
