Being unable to pay increasing rental prices allegedly drove a young office worker in Beijing to build a 60 sq.ft egg-shaped mobile home. He is said to have lived within this structure for 2 months along Cheng Fu Road in Beijing’s Haidian District. Netizens have questioned whether this was all a well-crafted promotional campaign triggered by the young man’s employers. Whether or not this is the case, is this what rapidly increasing prices may lead to?
