Chinese Ghost Cities

For years now, Chinese “developers” have been building massive “ghost cities”within China.  Each city, large enough to house up to half a million people, complete with schools, and retail units, sit empty. There are at least 10 of them, completely uninhabited but for a few caretakers and maintenance men. Recently Chinese built ghost cities have been constructed in Africa. The most recent, covering over 12,000 acres outside Luanda, the capital city of Angola. This new city has 750 – 8 story apartment buildings, 12 schools, and 100’s of retail units – all empty.

Certainly worth pondering.

Officially, built to supply a demand for housing. It’s only been in the last 20 years that Chinese were allowed to buy and sell property. Unofficially – something very strange to ponder.
