The transformation of the village in the city gave birth to 1878 billionaires? Don’t just see the demolition and get rich.
City and people
"Removing and getting rich", as a kind of property compensation income, should not be equal to "no work". These benefits, as one of the ways farmers share the urbanization dividend, should not be looked at with colored glasses.
A "stone" stirred up a thousand waves. As a famous city center in the city center and Shenzhen “old aircraft carrier”, Bai Shizhou finally has to be demolished and rebuilt. On December 28, 2018, the Shenzhen Municipal Planning and Land Commission officially adopted the “City Planning Unit for Shahe Five Villages in Shahe Street, Nanshan District”. Subsequently, Bai Shizhou’s news of the birth of 1,878 billionaires was on the Internet.
I do not know from when, demolition and wealth has replaced the past demolition rights disputes, and became the center of the topic of demolition. The demolition of Baishizhou was initially entered into public opinion with the “explosion point of “1878 billionaires to be born”. However, the non-civilization demolition needs to be vigilant, and the paradox of “destroying” the demolition and enrichment also requires rational speculation.
Subsequent reports from the media clarified a few facts. First, the so-called "1878 billionaires will be born" is obviously exaggerated. 1878 households are the total number of local villagers. The average property area of local families is five or six hundred square meters, and villagers with an area of more than 1,000 square meters will not exceed 20%. Further, considering the price level of the north, the house of 100 square meters can be regarded as a multi-millionaire. Therefore, it is also a multi-millionaire. In different contexts, the level of measurement is completely different.
Second, some people only stare at the "demolition and getting rich" label, but intentionally or unintentionally ignore the cost and effort behind it.
Although many places today insist on demolition according to law, there are more institutional guarantees for the care of the interests of farmers. However, the interest game behind the demolition is equally fierce and full of variables.
What's more, in the eyes of outsiders, the peasants who got compensation seem to have won the lottery in an instant, but in fact, behind it is a long process of waiting and anxiety. The old reform of Baishizhou has been waiting for at least 14 years. The inconvenience and sawing that it has experienced in the meantime also means a huge cost.
Therefore, "demolition and getting rich", as a kind of property compensation income, should not be equal to "no work". It is undeniable that the demolition and relocation caused by the advancement of urbanization has indeed created a group of “get rich” farmers in many cities. But this is one of the ways for farmers to share the urbanization dividend, and should not be looked at with colored glasses.
Of course, public opinion is keen on paying attention to the "myth of demolition", not only because of jealousy, but also because of the expectation of fair distribution. This is because farmers are often faced with huge gaps in different regions due to the degree of benefit of demolition. Some of these gaps are affected by objective environments such as economic development level and land use, and some are due to fair implementation of rules. Differences in the ability to play with farmers.
If it goes further, it also reflects the huge gap in land income of farmers in different regions. Not only the demolition, but also the more common land benefits such as land transfer, there is still a large uncertainty in reality. From this perspective, at a general level, the benefits that farmers rely on for land and property are not too many, but still too little.
In fact, as urbanization rises to a certain stage, the shed is finally coming to an end, and the myth of demolition like Baishizhou will become less and less. This means that in the second half of urbanization, more inclusive channels should be built to make land income and urbanization development results more fair to cover more farmers.
In short, in the rule of law society, the legal benefits of anyone should be equally protected by law. In a society that is gradually becoming richer, the way the national income is becoming more diversified is the normal phenomenon. Some people can start from scratch by personal struggle, and some people can benefit from the property income to live a prosperous life, which should be recognized. The problem we are facing now is not that individuals can make a fortune, but that a fair and diversified income path remains to be developed.
