A whopping 85 per cent Chinese worship money, according to an online poll and the respondents believe that the craze for it is more than any other nation of the world.

"It is true. You can't do almost anything without money, especially in some government bureaus," an anonymous
voter wrote a post behind the poll, Global Times reported.

The poll released on huanqiu.com shows that about 85 per cent of domestic respondents believe that Chinese worship
money more than any other nation.

When asked whether China is the No.1 money worshipping country on huanqiu's poll, 85.7 per cent of web
users agreed, while only 14.3 per cent disagreed.

Some respondents said they are reduced to being slaves to money because of the rising property prices in China.

Others treat money critically and believe that it is both an incentive to drive people work and a narcotic that
keeps them passive.
