Chinese Millionaires Are Leaving The Country In Droves

Do the wealthy Chinese know something we don't?





A new report shows that 64 percent of Chinese millionaires have either emigrated or plan to emigrate—taking their spending and fortunes with them. 





The United States is their favorite destination.




The report from Hurun, a wealth research firm that focuses on China, said that one-third of China's super rich—or those worth $16 million or more—have already emigrated.






The data offer the latest snapshot of China's worrying wealth flight, with massive numbers of rich Chinese taking their families and fortunes overseas






Previous studies show the main reasons rich Chinese are leaving is to pursue better educations for their kids, and to escape the pollution and overcrowding in urban China.
















But analysts say there is another reason the Chinese rich are fleeing: to protect their fortunes. 





With the Chinese government cracking down on corruption, many of the Chinese rich—who made their money through some connection or favors from government—want to stash their money in assets or countries that are hard for the Chinese government to reach.








According to WealthInsight, the Chinese wealthy now have about $658 billion stashed in offshore assets. 





Boston Consulting Group puts the number lower, at around $450 billion, but says offshore investments are expected to double in the next three years.






A study from Bain Consulting found that half of China's ultrawealthy—those with $16 million or more in wealth—now have investments overseas.







The mass millionaire migration out of China is also hitting luxury companies hard.




Hurun said China's luxury sales last year fell 15 percent—the biggest drop in over a half a decade. 




Spending on gifts, which made up a sizable portion of luxury sales, fell 25 percent.







Bentley Motors last week said that its sales in China slowed last year in part because of "the migration of high net worth individuals from China."












In other words, it isn't that wealthy buyers in China are spending less—they're just disappearing.






Most are looking for permanent residences, Hurun said. The United States was their top destination, which any real estate agent in San Francisco, Seattle or New York can confirm. 





Europe is their second favorite destination, followed by Canada, Australia, Singapore and Hong Kong.

Carabao claims to be the sweetest mango in the world and was able to register this in the Guiness book of world records.

Mangoes date back 65 million years according to research ...

Experts at the Birbal Sahni Institute of Palaeobotany (BSIP) here have traced the origin of mango to the hills of Meghalaya, India from a 65 million year-old fossil of a mango leaf. 





The earlier fossil records of mango (Mangifera indica) from the Northeast and elsewhere were 25 to 30 million years old. The 'carbonized leaf fossil' from Damalgiri area of Meghalaya hills, believed to be a mango tree from the peninsular India, was found by Dr R. C. Mehrotra, senior scientist, BSIP and his colleagues. 




After careful analysis of the fossil of the mango leaf and leaves of modern plants, the BISP scientist found many of the fossil leaf characters to be similar to mangifera.


An extensive study of the anatomy and morphology of several modern-day species of the genus mangifera with the fossil samples had reinforced the concept that its centre of origin is Northeast India, from where it spread into neighbouring areas, says Dr. Mehrotra. 




The genus is believed to have disseminated into neighb…
