NPR's Rob Gifford reports from Shanghai that the city once known as the Paris of the East is experiencing a financial and cultural revival after languishing under Communism for the past half century. Communism still exists, but the government's policy of economic reform has allowed Shanghai to reclaim its image as the smart, trendy, commercial heart of China. From the arts to the financial sector, Shanghai is booming, attracting a strong international community and luring back young Chinese who had left the country.
