2010 story of the year


From the UK press …  truly a stunning article.

I don’t trust communists, and this article just reinforces that belief for me.

WTF are these chicom bastards up to?

 

Ghost Towns of China

 

Elaborate public buildings and open spaces are completely unused, with the exception of a few government vehicles near communist authority offices.

Some estimates put the number of empty homes at as many as 64 million, with up to 20 new cities being built every year in the country’s vast swathes of free land.

The photographs have emerged as a Chinese government think tank warns that the country’s real estate bubble is getting worse, with property prices in major cities overvalued by as much as 70 per cent.

Ghost city: Kangbashi was meant to be the urban centre for wealthy coal-mining community Ordos and home to its one million workers, but its roads are eerily empty and the houses stand vacant.

 

Much, much  more at the UK Daily Mail:        Ghost Towns of China

  1. Somebody tryin’ to keep the workers happy.

  2. 64 million vacant homes? that’s a lot of happiness.

  3. That’s a lot of laid off construction workers.
    W said once when he talked with the Big Kahuna Commie of China what was the biggest challenge he faced and BKC said creating 25,000,000 new jobs a year.
