    If you want my honest opinion - those cities are for the Gov't and corporate rats that are running the western countries over a cliff (US, GB, AU, CN). Once the full extent of their crimes come to light, this will not be a healthy environment for traitors.

    An example of communist planning run amok?? If you have income from bribes from builders you can accomplish anything, and China has one of the most corrupt governments on the planet.

    Hmmm... Americans were doing that with houses in the last decade. Maybe some central planner said, "American do it with house. We do it with CITY!" :laugh:

    During the boom, millions of Chinese were leaving rural areas for cities. Perhaps the government thought there would be demand for more urban areas.

    I believe they have enough people to fill them.Kinda weird.
    What areas are they? Are they farther inland in case the coasts/borders get nuked?
    Maybe for the big wigs and importants to retreat to if the borders are compromised?

    its like they are building housing, but no industry or business to sustain them. Probably just some sort of ponzi scheme. I bet someone somewhere made a crap ton of money off this.

    It is their version of economic stimulus. Construction projects create jobs now. Down the road, they hope for an economic boom that will create enough jobs to fill those cities with working people who have been lifted out of poverty. Ambitious, and probably overreaching badly. We shall see.

    Bingo. As dumb as this kind of stimulus sounds all I can say is atleast they will have something to show for it in ten years. They will still have the value of built buildings. Compare that to the stimulus here in the U.S. and what do we have to show for it now let alone in ten years?

    There may be natural resources near those locations that they haven't gotten around to mining/drilling (etc) for yet. Since under communism no one owns property, the gov most likely has a plan of some kind in mind.

    At least we have a place to send the socialist we have here, when it comes time to send them packin'! :laugh: :bluelaugh: :laugh:
