Robert,

I didn't ask you for a suggestion. I am sure good buildings can be constructed even in China. And one day this will happen. It does already happen in isolated cases. But it should become a mass phenomenon. The house you live in in Guilin may be designed for 30 years' usefulness. Most buildings get destroyed after ca. thirty years. In one century, China builds and destroys and rebuilds and destroys again almost the entire park of houses. What a colossal waste!

You haven't b ought a "condo" in China, Robert, so what would YOU know???

The fact that 99% of a ...

You don't have to buy a housing unit to know the prices.
The condo I rent is better than anything in the US that would rent at the same price.

Why don't you try to buy a condo in any of the other countries you claim to have lived in
at the same price you paid for your condo you live in here in China?
What do you want? An 18k solid gold toilet?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Robert, you are a loser Sorry but your points are negative - you hae lost this discussion again!

I am not going to move around the world in search of better housing. I think if China claims it can produce goods as high-quality as those made in the West then I want to take China by its promise and buy there. Unfortunately, China makes promises and it breaks promises.

China is inseparatable part of the world, and the Chinese population was part of the human race even when the country was closed to outside.

I think that bigger issue than what he rest of the world would look like without "made in China", is what the Chinese population would look like as part of that world, and how that would reflect on rest of humanity.

Indeed, as Jaajaa says: it's China that has gained the most by opening up its borders and allowing investors to bring new goods to the Chinese consumers.

When will China come up with an innovation that the world will want to buy?

I'm the loser?
You're the one who claims to be living in China and whines about how bad your condo is.
If you lived in all those other countries then why don't you sell your condo in China and move
to any of those other countries you mentioned and see what kind of housing you can get
for the same money.
You whine about everything in China yet you won't move to another country.
Talk about a loser...

Loser, Robert. You lost this argument big time. Why did you even start it?

You have no heart. You don't feel sympathy for the victims of China's brutal rat race for people to find accommodation. It is so unfair and stacked up in favour of the oligarchic real estate developers in cahoots with the Party who protects the rich.

You are a BAD Socialist, a fake Communist! Real Communists are on the side of the VICTIMS of these brutal market forces! Not you, though!
