The list of ways China keeps tabs on citizens is getting longer
China‚Äôs ambitious plan to assign lifelong scores to citizens based on their behavior has stoked international concern, even as the project remains nascent and numerous hurdles must be overcome before the experiment can be implemented nationwide.
