Is China Subordinating Health and Environmental Concerns to Economic Growth?
AbstractThe popular press frequently portrays China in a negative light when it reports on environmental and health issues: widespread air and water pollution, mine accidents, and contaminated imports such as food and toys. The image is hardly positive. How much of this accurately reflects reality, and how much reflects a tendency of the popular press to accentuate the negative? Is the image the same in professional journals and technical reports?
