PODCAST Biz503: Should Corporate Taxes be Higher? – Portland Radio Project


For the second time in a week, a Chinese city has announced it would halt plans for a garbage incinerator project following angry protests by residents that underscore growing concern over threats to public health.  The government of Nanxian (NAN’-she-ahn) in the southern province of Hunan said Thursday in a public notice that it would cease all work related to the project and would not start up again without public support.

China is faced with the mounting challenge of disposing solid waste generated in ever-larger cities. However, public distrust runs deep as people question their local governments’ ability to properly plan, build and manage trash incinerators.

Thanks. God bless.
