A newly inaugurated skyscraper is seen yesterday in Huaxi Village, Jiangsu Province. Known as China's richest village, Huaxi celebrated its 50th anniversary with the inauguration of a massive 328-meter skyscraper that dwarfs all the other buildings in the area. A solid gold bull, which weighs 1 ton, greets visitors at an observation deck on the 60th floor of the tower, a testament to the wealth of the village. In Huaxi, every family has at least one house, a car, and US$250,000 in the bank and enjoys universal health care and free education.
