HK doesn't have an outsourcing industry anymore nor it's a commerial hub.  Now It's just a tourist hot spot for tourists from mainland

Well, I hate to disappoint you. I'd say HK has been mainlandized. The most richest guys living in Hongkong are mostly real estate developers who have also made considerable investments in mainland.

  Guess what? Hongkong used to have a thriving entertainment business; its film industry was a template for other Asian nations to emuplate, including South Korea. Now South Korea is the leader of the pack in this industry, whereas you can  hardly find any competitive movie production companies in Hongkong at the moment.

   Altogether, HK's attractivness to foreign investors is on the wane, just like  Hongkong movies, music and TV dramas produced by TVB.

please discuss, China intend to maintain 7% growth - yet REAL ESTATE meltdown seem to be in ...

why need to maintain 7% growth? cannot be 6% or 5%...as long as there are growth is good~
real estate will not meltdown in China...is just a matter of time, citizens will move to new area, when new businesses created in those new estates...

only in China can build/develop/construct a city...other countries construction are privatized, and due to this, only big developers are able to play this game, because they have the money to bribe the govt. for the tender...thus, these countries only able to construct a building or a town house...but this is not the case in China.

in China, the government is the developer...and they hire private architects...the game is different...when China build...they build a whole city...and wait for citizen and businesses to move in...

most of you will argue about price souring...this issue is already been dealt with...so no more high price caused by agents...slowly, poor and middle class citizen are able to purchase their home...sales are slow...but that doesnt mean a melt down at all~

people will get more...rooms will be filled...its nature...done case~
