[quote:Anonymous Coward 29154044:MV8yMDc0MTIzXzM0OTEzNzY3X0YxOTQ3QzI=] I have a couple theories about the Chinese ghost cities. One, the Chinese government is well aware that they need to keep their population employed, to the greatest extent possible, and having work crews constantly engaged in massive building projects certainly helps in that regard. Second, the Chinese are doing everything in their power to convert their soon-to-be-worthless U.S. dollars to something of tangible value. To that end, the Chinese government is buying up all manner of natural resources all over the world, to try to put as many dollars to work as possible before the dollar curtain falls. Converting those dollars into buildings seems another shrewd use of those paper funds. The Chinese ain't stupid, folks. They're planning for the future, something that few other countries are doing. As Doug Casey has said repeatedly, within a generation, Europe will be no more than a source of maids and houseboys for wealthy Chinese.

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.
