Leaving China was already high on the agenda of expats, but now also Chinese are considering leaving as Shanghai suffered from the worst pollution ever in the past week. WSJ wealth editor Wei Gu talks to sustainability specialist Richard Brubaker, who expects pollution is going to be worse in the next 5-15 years.
Urbanization, energy inefficiency and more cars and trucks on the roads push pollution levels up, and the question is whether Chinese will accept a lower economic growth, to fight pollution.
