China will ban people with poor ‘social credit’ from planes and trains

Recommended Posts

Uh, wasn't there a Black Mirror episode about this, almost exactly?

Starting in May, Chinese citizens who rank low on the country’s burgeoning “social credit” system will be in danger of being banned from buying plane or train tickets for up to a year, according to statements recently released by the country’s National Development and Reform Commission.

 

With the social credit system, the Chinese government rates citizens based on things like criminal behavior and financial misdeeds, but also on what they buy, say, and do. Those with low “scores” have to deal with penalties and restrictions. China has been working towards rolling out a full version of the system by 2020, but some early versions of it are already in place.

I'd be fine with this if it was based on how Chinese tourists behave abroad tbh.
