The Cage Men, HONG KONG

This past June, and like every year the EUI (Economist Intelligence Unit) made the ranking for the magazine The Economist, of what are the best cities in the world to live. And the winner was Hong Kong.
Hong Kong boasts four of the fifteen world's tallest buildings. It is also known for "Shopping Paradise" it is one of the cities with more Louis Vuitton shops where you can buy almost anything at a price more than good. Besides being one of the few havens of the world.
The thing would have no history, if it were not also one of the cities where the square meter of housing is the most expensive in the world and where many of the inhabitants of the former British colony, they came looking for a job from the ancient China and they have to live in a small apartment in some neighborhoods of the city, as in the case of this building in Kowloon, a neighborhood that historically holds the demerit of being the town with the highest population density in the world.
The cage men still are 14 years later, one of the worst kept secrets of Hong Kong. Lack of space, prohibitive prices of housing and the greed of those with property have extended an indignity that today live about 100,000 people, according to local social organizations.
Luckily for them, many do not speak or read English, and therefore they never read the magazine, if not ... really they think that Hong Kong is the best city in the world to live?
