"On a street corner, two female university students distributed advertising leaflets to passing drivers and held up a "buy two floors for the price of one" deal for a residential housing development called "Harmony Building."
In the office of another real estate development company, a sales representative told CNN all of the units in neighboring residential towers had been sold. If so, nobody was bothering to maintain the grounds around the apartment buildings where knee-high grass and weeds grew between 30-story towers."

Empty decaying relics of CCP incompetence!

Kind of makes Detroit look just fine by comparison, eh?

Not so long as the immoral, corrupt, friendless mass-murdering bandit regime of the Chinese Communist Party is in power.

But, the dying CCP won't last much longer, so China may be a normal country much sooner than you think.

My Jewish brethrens who have been to China, tell me otherwise, no ghost towns nor ghost malls in China, they are all fully occupied. In fact Jews have done well in China, many becoming millionaires there. China is great for the world . As long as China helps us make money what is the beef?

China may not have ghost towns nor malls but Gordon Chang says the housing bubble in China is just around the corner. He is a Chinese, even he does not like China.

Yes, sending Wu Mao fake Jews to PRETEND there are no ghost cities (while HOURS of footage of deserted, empty relics of failed China developments are frequently broadcast, and every visitor to China marvels at the waste, CCP white elephants and massive failures) is just shallow and stupid, and it confirms just what a FAILURE the CCP regime is, living in a fantasy world of lies and hated by its own people!

Thanks for that example of CCP WEAKNESS, CCP Clown!
