There are areas in China that remind one of a Star Trek episode where time has slowed and the visitors watch and wait for time to catch up and people to appear. The empty cities and malls of China might indicate that all is not what it seems when we talk about China’s booming economy. Their huge infrastructure projects wait for customers and residents. Ironically, some Chinese are concerned about increasing polarizations and fears of uprisings by the poor. The statist society doesn’t cure societal problems as they would have us believe.
