    Ordos, China: A Modern Ghost Town - Photo Essays - TIME

    A recent CBS 60 Minutes report in the US exposed dozens of new cities in China sitting empty - with the apartments snapped up as investments by the nation's wealthy middle class, then sitting empty as the owners fail to find tenants who can meet the rent.

    Financial experts fear the ghost town explosion will lead to a housing bubble burst, following China's real estate boom which came after the government changed its policy 15 years ago and allowed people to buy their homes.
    This isn't anything new.

    Well, the big capitalist countries are states, but they are hardly nations, are they? What do their various peoples have in common?

    Capitalist outside China, communist within.

    The powers that be in China have the best of both worlds from their perspective.
