Faux August 8


I am experimenting with different ways to automate some of my posts.  Here is one from 3 years ago.

In 2018 in a moment of weakness my friend John Rancke agreed to co-post with me for an entire year. He took the even numbered days, and I took the odds numbered ones. You can still find John on Twitter @johnrancke if you want to reach out to him.

August 8, 2018 Looking for a 2nd home in London, Paris, Venice, Jackson Hole

Post by John Rancke

Have I got a deal for you! China has built duplicate cities all over their country of many of the world’s great cities. The canals in Venice are there, there is an Eiffel Tower in their Paris. Thousands of apartments, open space, virtually empty. Almost no one living there.

So what’s the deal? It was first brought to the world’s attention when it was reported on by an Australian news agency. In 2016, ABC did a broadcast on Night Line which I have linked below.

Chinese Eiffel Tower[5751]

So why would a country with amazing historical architecture of their own, decide to copy numerous styles from all over the globe. And who are they expecting to live in the thousands of apartments across the country.

Just watch the short video and ponder WHY?? Mass migration ? Rising birth rate?

And here is a follow-up from January of 2018
