hello everybody, do you remember this thread about the giant ghost cities in china that are empty and nothing going on at all??

why is china building ghost cities?

now an article i read the other day which i cannot find any more, it was with the associated press. maybe someone will be able to find it for me or also read the article, stating that the Chinese government want to get rid of all the slums in the out skirts of the cities and country side and bring these people into cities and give them a better life to live, government subsidies in living and food. considering that there are millions of people in china living in these slums. using these ghost cities and starting a new community with people and giving them a second chance on living a good life, as good as a life as it can be compared to the slums..

i hope someone can find this article for me i did a search and cannot find it. but it say that its starting a urbanization program starting in 2014-2020..

i guess china was looking out for their citizens more than I thought or maybe im totally off and not even close?? who knows only time will tell..

one love!

Wouldn't that fit nicely with Agenda 21?

id be interested to see what effect this would have on the economy there. its a huge investment of time and man power (money) just to get it rolling but in the long run it could be a great payoff.

now just imagine that everyone in your country is proud of what they own and work hard to defend their way of life... i visualize america 1950ish. everyone has a spot they can call their own and they work hard to take care of it.

in the end i think it could be like planting seeds. these small ghost cities could be the birth place of ideas in the minds of the downtrodden. ideas for new factories or new products or whatever. just NEW. RENEWING!

could be good.

would be a huge waste of money if these places just turned into slums but i got a feeling that won't happen for some reason.

Yeah right, it was in anticipation of curtailing human suffering that China built enormous cities where there was no demand.

Wait, how is China going to fill these cities when one of the primary reasons they weren't being filled in the first place is because they were too expensive? Subsidies? Why can't they just lower the price of the apartments? Why subsidize the rent? Oh that's right, just another excuse to spread the corruption money around. Got it.

Because you think the status quo is gona last forever?

The east is prepping for a massive global change.

China and Russia et al plan far far ahead. Even Russia has even started rebuilding it's nuclear bunkers since they got out of date, they did a nation wide MASSIVE development of them. Not to mention what they are building in the far mountains.

China is also planning ahead, these "empires" have been around a lot longer than the US and will remain around for longer.

Didn't they build cities in africa also? I could see them giving free housing to poor folks as long as they work in some dangerous mine type environment for diamonds or something valuable

You do realize that the Russian federation is only 24 years old and the Chinese are only 65.

They both destroyed their respective "empires" long long ago.

If America is so powerful and all that hubris, just ignore China and Russia, so what if they are evil etc etc.

What have you to worry about. Stay in your country and ignore the rest of us evil doers in ours.

I am sure I have met many chineese that are older than 65, same for russians over 25 years old.

I guess it's cool if you starve people for x amount of years just to build and empty city, then starve them some more to save up even more cash before you actually put the poor, hungry people in them.

Communism. Gotta love it!


For some reason I see these cities populated by the rich instead of the poor. Either way.. then endgame is glory for their government.

The great wall was also a pretty cool wonder... though built by and filled in with the backs and bodies of slaves.

In China... You don't just build wall. You are wall.

You go into wall when finish building it.

America and the UK have no poor people? No people homeless, or starving?

Given that they spent how much invading Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya et al. Yet they have homeless, starving and poor people, sounds also like human rights issues and a military dictatorship abroad.

Well, by that measure, we should be most concerned with the Sumerians, it is my understanding that they go back seven thousand years.

Sounds like commie propaganda to me.

End's doesn't justify the means in this case. Those cities have been there for a long time. Those people have been starving longer. Seems like they put their money in the wrong place.

Sure they do. One thing... We don't build empty cities and not let anyone live there.

As a matter of fact.. The US.. and more specifically the South US, are more giving to poor and homeless people than you imagine.

Why am I always hearing news of the poor people in china, eating bats and rats... and these HUGE cities with no one living in them? Doesn't make sense, even IF they planned to use them for the poor. Why wait so long? Why now?

I challenge you to compare the amount of poor and hungry in china vs the US and the UK combined! Dare you!


Also.. Who says the govn't would have used that money to feed the poor here if we didn't have a war? We have foodstamps. If those people don't get any, they either don't want them or they make too much for them. You have no idea how easy it is to get foodstamps and project housing here. Especially now! With a free phone to boot.

Your information is invalid!

Still, I think we also liberated those countries. It's up to their people to take it from the point that we liberated them. Unfortunately, it was taken over by other people that brainwashed their people and are doing the same as their previous governments.

America, largest military spending on the planet invading other countries.
UK, still focusing on military invasions abroad.

At least china are not invading Africa with miiltary, like the Brits or French did.

Because we keep them in check!

So... Starving your people by the millions on top of millions is ok compared to war? I'm sorry.. I don't see a difference. At least our wars had purpose, no matter how you look at them. Even IF they were for oil... there were still the idea of liberating those people in every case.

You know... Our poor would be considered WELL OFF in China. Go figure!

Do you even understand their level of poor? These people EAT THEIR OWN KIDS! kinda poor.

I found this from September 2013. A reporter went back after making his initial report in 2011.

Well, at least they have a really good "economic planner" on the case!

Should be good to go soon, they just forgot to mandate customers as well as "businesses".

What if... it is not China building them for China,. what if another country ( or agency) is paying them to do it.

Why else would it be similar architecture to other countries, such as the replica Eiffel Tower et al.
