Al Jazeera's Melissa Chan reports from Inner Mongolia, where a whole town built with government money is standing empty.
I want to know why does Homo Sapiens (in the year 2009) builds cities and leaves them empty. There are enough people who need some real shelter. I
don't want answers like "the information on some hard disk in some dungeon - says that people cannot use the city they built" or "they play a
complex game, and they are low on their important numbers!".
This is "Homo Sapiens" not some monkey ? Is he ? With his "superior intellect" he should overcome the numbers on the hard disk...
This thread belongs here. It's not about "economy" (a game) or current events. It's about waking up.
Why do I call economy a "game" ? Look - "Housing Bubble" , "too many houses !", meaning people have to lose their houses, and sit outside, at
the same time workers complain - nobody needs new houses built. How can there be too many houses ? Why are houses empty and people outside ? Mental
Yeah, I definately feel what you're saying, you're signature is actually one of my favorite quotes in my quote collection.
I'm no expert in economy and how things really work but It does feel like a stupid game doesn't it, and that signature points it out in such a
simple and innocent way, cutting through all of the bullsh*t and beurocracy.
Thx I am trying to explain as simple as I can - when I hear people talking about "Economy" and how "important" it is I fell like trying to make
sense in front of some "Napoleon" from the mental hospital. Don't know what to say anymore.
There is no Hitler invading, no meteorite impact, no locust swarm, there still is some oil and other resources left. Everything is still here. But -
that's our game, so we got to play it. We need more numbers on the hard disk ! Bigger numbers ! Else - we suffer. We "Homo Sapiens". The "smart"
ones" . "We got to the Moon!" ...
the chinese government does not care about its peasent slaves. when there are so many mouths to feed, killing off a million or so a year by a polluted
enviorment is of no consequence to a country that has over 1.5 billion people. if the government was concerned, they would not have allowed this type
of pollution in the first place. actions speak louder than words.
