Poverty In Hong Kong. [No. 1], Snail Without a Shell
Summary: "Hong Kong is a prosperous city with a high GDP per capita. However, the distribution of income is uneven and there is a wide gap between social groups in terms of wealth and income. Overall, income inequality in Hong Kong, as indicated by the Gini Coefficient, has been on the rise in the past three decades. Large parts of the economy are dominated by a small group of tycoons who are among the richest people in the world and whose wealth is increasing. At the same time, there is a growing number of unemployed with practically no chance for rejoining the workforce.

"The series 'Poverty in Hong Kong' is a daring, thought-provoking and very timely documentary study on the factors that lead to the present problem of poverty in Hong Kong.
