雅思口语Part3: Do old people in China like to hoard things? 中国的老年人喜欢大量藏东西吗？
Yes, I totally think so. In the past, especially before the reform and opening policy in China, most Chinese were living in poverty, they would store many things as much as possible before things ran out. This article is from laokaoya website. Right now, they don’t have to hoard things especially like food or something, but they still have the habit of keeping some antiques. Why they still do so? I guess the older generation want a sense of security and wealthiness.
