From Mei Fong (born 1972), Malaysian-Chinese-American journalist, staff reporter for the China bureau for The Wall Street Journal. In April 2007, she was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for International Reporting as part of the bureau’s “sharply edged reports on the adverse impact of China’s booming capitalism on conditions ranging from inequality to pollution,”[ One Child: The Story of China’s Most Radical Experiment (2016):

For Americans, the car is the American way. Jay Gatsby roars through capitalism, individual freedom, and the good life. For China, the train is the metaphor. Everyone’s on board, there’s no chance to steer, and it’s clickety-clack to collectivism’s dreams.
