Jessica Kingdon – Documenting China’s Economic Rise | The Daily Show

Published on February 17, 2022

Jessica Kingdon discusses the parallels of the American dream and the Chinese dream that she witnessed while filming her Oscar-nominated documentary “Ascension”: “The one thing that they both have in common is this quest for upward mobility and this belief in the system that you’ll be rewarded materially for your hard work, and are able to work yourself up to a middle-class lifestyle, which of course we know is not true for everyone.” #DailyShow

    Life can be accidentally poetic, and it’s about the patience to allow those moments to emerge. There is a story being told by the way people live. <3

    I hope more people listen to this. And I hope the point where China made those hats for trump can bring people think more. 😂

    *Everything reeks inflation in the economy…. I don’t know who, however a person desires to pay attention to this, you have to stop relying on the government and saving all of your money . Venture into making an investment a few in case you actually want monetary freedom*.

    As a westerner that’s lived in China for over a decade,
    the biggest thing the American dream and the Chinese dream have in common,
    is the country they’re achieved in.

    feelings flow,
    emotions are feelings + psychology.
    emotions can be seen as layered feelings
    or pivots between or throughout feelings.
