60 years of New China?

15 years maximum: 1994 ~ 2009.

The 45 years before 1994 will not be mentioned anyway.

What's so specific about 1994 in China? Is this just to use the same numbers as in 1949 (like 1948 - 1984)??

Perhaps referring to 1994's fiscal reforms?

Jenny is quite the culture vulture and was well able to hold her own when paired with the inimitable Aric. Dedicated, solid and dignified and a barometer of good taste, the Jenny Show will run and run...

Hi Joachim

A lot of people point to 1994 as the year when Shanghai really started to take off economically. But I have to agree, I find that date a bit arbitrary. The more conventional starting point for the modern history of the PRC is 1978, when the 改革开放 reform and opening really got going. Interestingly, many of the reforms had been tried out of desperation at a local level in the years before 1978, but they were still considered dangerously unorthodox.
