Newcastle University in the UK has orderd fifty Chinese students to leave the university after their academic certificates, basing on which they were accepted to study in the university, were found to be fake.
Forty nine of them are from mailand China, one from Taiwan.
Everything can be fake in China, from CD, brand bags and clothes, to food, and certificates. The scandal underscores that the fake culture has permeated into the youth generation. How can they not, if they live in an environment that almost everything is, and can be, fake.
Is this the price China has to pay for its economic growth and prosperity? Has the country leadership counted this price?
