QIANWEI, CHINA: A rural boy walks along a rail to collect breeze in Qianwei county, in China’s southwestern province of Sichuan, 23 May 2005. A leading Chinese official said 90 million Chinese live on less than one US dollar a day, in a rare instance of Beijing recognizing the internationally accepted measurement for poverty. For years China has boasted efforts that have brought up to 400 million people out of poverty, but has long ignored World Bank and UN criteria drawing the poverty line at one US dollar a day of purchasing power in the year 1993.
