China says it has eradicated extreme poverty from country

China declared that it has eradicated extreme poverty in the country. According to Chinese media, China lifted nearly 100 million impoverished rural residents out of poverty in 2020 after an eight-year effort in this direction. Chinese media, which often plays the role of Beijing’s mouthpiece, said poverty plagued China for thousands of years and this achievement was a ’victory for humanity.’

Yes they have eliminated extreme poverty by lowering the line of what they define as extreme poverty. Good job!

Poverty is relative, as what China and the US consider the standard for their impoverished is not the same.

This is clearly false. It's a ploy by the state to set the stage for becoming the model with which all other countries adhere to

News: China abolishes poverty out of tin air. Also the News: China's biggest public billionaire seemingly dissapears. I see a pattern here.

This may be a translation error. What they really mean is that they "eradicated the impoverished" or made it politically incorrect to be in poverty officially.

Ye we eliminated poverty... Covid 19 is under control.... We only have under "100k" cases.... The math works here but not as China intended.... But I suppose in one way they might be telling the truth ....

There IS a standard definition of extreme poverty, its 1.90USD a day. Its NOT relative at all. Half the people in extreme poverty in the world live in India, I read.

Slavery always boosts an economy. Most of the great works wouldn't have been possible without it.
