@johnww2 I remember hearing that commissars in the USSR would look at western sources like the Wall Street Journal to help them set prices. Otherwise they had no clue. @Johncdvorak

@johnww2 @Johncdvorak Did these guys do a show on Chinese nail houses at one point? Junk houses built so the government would compensate them when the land was needed for new development. As there is more money for every floor, nail houses would be multi story, each level constructed worse than the last! Probably more about gouging the government than the ghost cities, which seem to be funneling the middle class money into investments and keeping the economy rolling? theguardian.com/cities/gallery
