-> "A 2007's survey shows that the average monthly income of Hong Kong people is HK$10,100. But there are still 24% of people who aren't up to that line yet. Since the handover, Hong Kong's income rate has increased by 1%. But in 2007 alone, house prices shot up by 15%. In Hong Kong, a flat of 600 square feet costs more than HK$7 million. Flats with harbor view can reach HK$30,000 (US$3,200) per square foot. In a crazy city, if one is to survive, he's got to be more crazy."
