China’s young ‘lie flat’ under social challenges

The "lying flat" or "tang ping" movement is a phenomenon that emerged in China in 2021.

สล็อตโปรฝาก 10 รับ 100 Slot also gets rewarded for playing worthwhile games. It can be played as a relaxing game from work at any time convenient for you.

It describes the generations born in the late 1990s and 2000s who, disappointed by their lack of social mobility and economic stagnation, have decided to "not strive for their futures". They do not want to follow the values of hard work, home ownership, marriage or living standards sought after by past generations.

Ever since the lying flat movement resonated with younger netizens, the Chinese government has sought to put the fire out by restoring the good old values of past generations. The question is why the movement has spread among Chinese youth despite 40 years of economic prosperity. The reality is that Chinese GDP growth has steadily declined since 2010.

GDP growth had already dropped from 10.6 per cent to 6 per cent before the COVID-19 pandemic. Now an economic downturn — due to worldwide inflation from the pandemic, the Ukraine war and economic sanctions — threatens to end the golden period of Chinese prosperity.

Increasing tensions between the United States and China, numerous lockdowns due to China’s zero-COVID policy, a looming property crisis and declining employment for unskilled workers have cast further doubts on the future of China.
