image for China facing dangerous real-estate bubble and rising inflation
Ceilings in this building are only 4 ft high. Something needs to be done to help taller Chinese citizens.

One of China's leading economists has said that the country is facing the possibility of a dangerous real-estate bubble and rising inflation which could put growth at risk.

This headline is a cause for great concern. The majority of the Chinese population are already 'height challenged' and this journalist has her own opinions on the correlation between real-estate and the height of Chinese citizens.

If growth is indeed at risk, then the leading economists ought to be doing something about it.

One idea put forward at a recent conference was:

The Chinese government should pass a bill forcing builders to build homes and offices with higher ceilings in an effort to encourage growth in China.

Too many citizens are having to crouch down to enter, and remain in, buildings which have rooms which, on average, are 4 ft. high.

This obviously hampers growth of individuals in China when citizens over 4 ft. tall are forced to crouch on a regular basis.

Taller Chinese citizens have, in the past, resorted to major surgery in order to shorten their legs in an effort to comfortably live their daily lives. There is, in fact, a waiting list for such surgery.

Something must be done - and quickly - in an effort to stop the necessity of such surgery.

Chinese citizens are going as far as Poland and Russia in order to undergo this surgery, which is not, for obvious reasons, available in China itself.

Further information as we get it.
