    Weren't these supposed to house the displaced from the Three Rivers dam project? All the farmers moved back into farming areas instead of becoming 'city folk'?

    Interesting that most of the population in these vacant cities are government officials, sounds like Detroit. Do they have Devils Night in Zhengzhou New District, China?

                They must have a Congress as foresighted as ours.

                    If it's anything like the US, the taxpayers spend $3 Trillion to bail out the richest 1% and then the housing bubble bursts.

                        They have planed ahead for when they move everyone from the country side to the cities to better control them. Then they will force them to work in the factories for free housing and food.

                        Remember China is a socialist country and no one has rights except the government officials.

                        They are just planning ahead, that's all.

                          I like the post WW3 scenario where the survivors will have a place to live.

                            China is communist, not socialist. Sweden is the closest government you'll find to true socialism.

                              It is true, no matter what anyone says, the majority of new businesses in China are state owned, so is all the energy, power, and major transportation.
