New Chinese aphrodisiac: real estate

My friend Lisa Chow is a free lance reporter currently based out of Beijing, and just had her first broadcast piece, distributed by American Public Media, “New Chinese aphrodisiac: real estate:

“You know what’s going to work with members of the opposite sex. Charm…wit…intelligence. Good looks never hurt. A promising career’s always helpful. Roll all those together and you can pretty much gurarantee a busy weekend for twenty and thirty-somethings on the dating scene here in the United States. In big cities in China, though, that’s not gonna cut it. Lisa Chow reports from Beijing a broad real estate portfolio is a pretty potent aphrodisiac.”

No wonder why there has been a housing bubble in China the past few years :-). My friend’s parents bought a penthouse suite in the Pu Dong section of Shanghai back in 2002, and that was definitely a great financial investment.

Thanks for rating this! Now tell the world how you feel - .
