Sorry, I'm not buying this at all. There seems to be no actual evidence to back up any of these claims, it's just more of "this guy said..."
It's widely believed by economists who have studied this subject that this is all about corruption within the elite class and a deliberate intention
to inflate the wealth of the nation.
Basically, a corrupt official, or ten, have deals to funnel money out of government into these projects, they siphon off a large chunk of cash for
themselves and the size of these developments makes it almost impossible to trace.
But, there are also other theories about this being part of a war plan too. If China were to go to war tomorrow, they could evacuate millions of
people from the major urban areas within days.
Think about that from our own perspectives. What would happen if London, Paris, New York and so on were under threat? Where would all those people go?
Can a warring nation successfully defend their largest cities?
During WW2, in the UK, millions of children were relocated to other areas out of the urban sprawl because they were under threat. There was nowhere
for them to go other than with volunteer families in the villages and towns all across the country. Now that we have the capability, any third world
war would be fought using missiles and drones, these probably wouldn't be limited to targeting military sites and government buildings, at least not
Having so many smaller satellite cities all around the country allows China to evacuate their largest cities and spread the population out, for
protection against attack. The worrying thing is that, if this is the case, they have a plan and have had one for more than a decade. They seem to be
expecting another war, and seem to be actively planning for it if this is the case.
It's just a theory, but the only explanations I can come to is that this is either just corruption, a war plan, or both.
