The Chinese will occupy those apartments in the future. Don't worry about that. I will take all their empty apartments over our wasteland Detroit any day.

The Chinese are actually buying up Detroit.

I'd love to know how this all ends, and if China does in fact face a hard landing with its economy. So many commentators from the West continue to "predict" a hard landing and horrible crash in China, yet I think many of them have political motives. I also think it's hard for me to believe many of these Western economists predict China's future, when they've never even been to China, and know nothing about its political landscape. I feel like its all hearsay and data that they are taking from the U.S. past recessions, that might not be comparable to China and it's one party system rule (Capitalism with Chinese Characteristics).....

Can you share where you got this info? Not that I don't believe I dot but I want to pass it along to my friend . China is notorious for wasting space.

That's unbelievable that there's so many vacant apartments. The Chinese should just do a hostile take over of those apartments.

6.5 million would be a lot.
65 million is wild.

To build 65 million Apts must have taken an army of workers.. Where are they now? Still building?

They also have empty factories, because they built huge overcapacities. They still build and build with government money to boost the economy. But the debt is increasing and increasing (especially local governments debt, and industry debt, while the federal budget is quite stable). The later the yellow bubble with burst, the more people and countries will be affected.

Most ghost cities get filled in a few years. Not really a serious problem.

It's already been a few years. Most of the buildings have very little routine maintenance being done to them.. It's a bit of a problem.

China has hundreds of cities and thousands of towns. Only a few cities really have sizeable ghost cities in them, and usually they get filled fast.
CNN reported a ghost city in Zhengzhou a few years ago, but now it is crowded like most urban places of China. There are always people who want to buy.
