When Chinese real estate spread their business all over the world, when Chinese gov buy more silence from other countries, when Chinese people keep working with low payment and with the hope that the gov will not turn them down when we fulfill Chariman Mao's dream: to fight for the liberation of all mankind.
GDP is a joke.
Mengmeng's right, as usual. GDP is a shitty economic indicator only used by lazy journalists trying to score cheap points.
They say money makes the world go 'round, but if you're the type of fool who thinks the Earth actually revolves around economic activity, then look outside the major cities, to the factories where people are actually building the shit you use every day.
New York, London, these are just cities where a lot of financial transactions are taking place. This type of economic activity is not valuable to humans.
Beijing and Shanghai taking on the characteristics of these places should be regarded as Mao's nightmare.
