Tread the poverty line carefully; focus should be helping people to empower them to help themselves, especially education.

The success of HK is resulted from having a hard working population with a can-do attitude and audacious goals of making a good living and becoming a millionaire, strongly believing that if one tries hard enough s/he would excel and achieve such goals.The recent change of attitude of becoming a more socialistic city radiated from socialists/interest groups assisted by media, in my view would founder the very ingredient of success that set HK apart and that have been an exemplifying example to the world.
