Thanks, from my travels I would say most places have a pretty wide gap between the richest and poorest.

John S. is right....a "middle class" is not the USUAL around the world. Get out of the cities and obvious tourist spots and you'll see that China has many, MANY poor. They've always been there and probably always will be....as is true everywhere.
