The Chinese dream on the Street of Eternal Happiness
Share Now on:
What started as a yearlong radio series on Marketplace is now a book.
Street of Eternal Happiness: Big City Dreams Along a Shanghai Road is the full title of the new book out today by Marketplace China Correspondent, Rob Schmitz.
It follows a group of individuals who live and work along a single street in Shanghai as they go through, day by day, life in today’s China. Some thrive in China’s new economy while others continue to search for their version of the Chinese Dream.
Marketplace is on a mission.
We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.
Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
