in Chengdu:

What a bunch of blabber. None of of it has a shred of proof.
The USA is the one deeply in debt with no hope of ever recovering.
How much are you being paid to spread lies?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

You are missing the point here.......the storm brewing in China will devastate it and return most people to subsistence level farming. Back to where they started. You ought to be worried if you are a friend of China.

People are buying properties, building properties allover the place but who is renting? Properties are lying empty in the City Of London without rental income and/or tenants.........who is going to rent in Chengdu?



No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

At the rate the govt is taking land away from the farmers (they are giving them money and houses) to build high tech zones and new cities, shopping malls, hotels, multi-use residences, etc. the food chain will fail. Inflation will continue to rise so one egg will cost 5 yuan.
I'm just here for the money

Now the Philippines:

SC stops Zambales mines; Chinese ‘invaders’ socked

Newsflash: The creeping Chinese invasion of Zambales mainland has been stopped — for now.

The Supreme Court yesterday issued a temporary environment protection order (TEPO) against 94 “small-scale mines” that extract nickel in Zambales. Among the “small” mines are at least five fronts of giant nickel miners from China (see Gotcha, 24 July 2013). Allegedly operating outside the allowable area, the mines are illegal, pollutive, unregulated, untaxed, and destabilizing the economy.

The SC en banc acted on a petition of ten Masinloc townsmen for a TEPO against Zambales Gov. Hermogenes Ebdane, the Provincial Mining Regulatory Board, and one Camilo Esico.

Covered by the TEPO are respondents Environment and Natural Resources Sec. Ramon Paje, his Mines and Geosciences Bureau, the Dept. of Interior and Local Government, and the Philippine National Police.

In a 35-page petition filed July 17, the townsfolk decried Ebdane’s granting of small-scale mining permits (SSMPs) outside the officially designated “minahang bayan.” As example, they cited the ones given to Esico in 2010, good for two years, and again in 2012, valid till 2014.

Provincial capitols may issue SSMPs under the People’s Small-Scale Mining Act of 1991. But these are supposed to be within the zone for subsistence miners, who employ only brawn, picks, and shovels.

The Zambales nickel miners in Masinloc and Sta. Cruz towns use sophisticated excavators, crushers, loaders, and explosives. Thousands of dump trucks laden with ore line up the national highway and side roads.

The five Chinese fronts have built a common wharf in Sta. Cruz, betraying the fact that they are one operation. Their mother companies are Jiangxi Rare Earth & Metals Tungsten Group, Wei-Wei Group, and Nihao Mineral Resources Inc. All tainted by bribery reports, they set up the five “small mines” through Filipino dummies.

Other “small” miners deliver ore to the Chinese-built pier, from which sail off four Chinese bulk carriers a week. Processed in China, the nickel is used for hi-tech weaponry and surveillance systems mobilized to sabotage the Philippine military and economy into submission. The Philippines is China’s top supplier of nickel.

Mining pollution of the rivers and seas are forcing fishermen from Masinloc, Sta. Cruz, and Infanta, Pangasinan, to sail farther out to sea. But when they enter the vicinity of the Bajo de Masinloc shoal, Chinese warships shell them back to shore.

China in 2012 grabbed the shoal, also called Panatag, 124 miles west of Zambales. It is well within the Philippines 200-mile exclusive economic zone, but 800 miles from the nearest Chinese coast. Chinese military vessels escort fish poachers from Hainan province, and forbid Filipinos from entering the traditional fishing grounds. China’s creeping invasion of Zambales mainland for nickel began eight years earlier, but worsened only recently.
