Ghost cities? Get real. Those are all failed projects. And outright wrong choices made. As simple as that. no sinister thoughts whatsoever. Big company plans to build 200.000 workforce factory, government supports the idea. builds city and the deal fell through.. so the city remains empty. I guess when you are sitting in a trailer park in the USA and you listen to FOX, spend too much time taking GLP seriously then yes... you may start to think there is a plot in there somewhere. But there is not. [/quote] Do you think they are failed or deliberate builds to pump stocks and provide a sheen of *progress*? [/quote]
China's biggest construction firms will spend £2.2bn to flatten 700 mountains levelling the area Lanzhou, allowing developers to build a new metropolis
The project will be China's fifth "state-level development zone" and the first in the country's rapidly developing interior. Others: Shanghai's Pudong and Tianjin's Binhai,
home to an unfinished, 120-building replica of Manhattan.
Liu Fuyuan, former high-level official at the country's National Development and Reform Commission, said project was unsuitable because Lanzhou is listed as among China's most water-scarce municipalities. "The most important thing is to gather people in places where there is water,"
so, ok, let bulldoze 700 mountains where there is no water.

China will flatten 700 mountains to make way for a new desert metropolis in what is believed to be one of the biggest mountain moving projects in the country's history.
Last year the World Health Organisation named Lanzhou one of China's most polluted cities with the worst air pollution and a shortage of water.
