Very interesting list. There's a mix of good and bad things, and funny enough, after living in China for nearly two months what you say is pretty accurate. What hit me the most was probably the huge skyscrapers and the traffic being a strange combination of an organised mess!
Yes, those empty cities do exist and it's quite eerie. Huge skyscrapers and everything a normal city has, except no people.
Yes I am here working for a company which helps people bring their business to China. I have learnt a lot about the Chinese laws and how they function with regards to foreigners. Very interesting and truly informative.
Nice information. I want to add more to this information:
China has the world's largest standing army and second-largest defense budget.
China is the world's largest exporter.
The groundwater of 90% of Chinese cities is polluted.
Every year, about a million girl fetuses are aborted and tens of thousands of girl babies are abandoned in China because of the country's one-child policy.
yes, China export the most but their products are cheap because they have cheap labor. Raw material is also cheap because most of them produced in China. But Chinese products are mostly of lower quality than other products. China only has VAT taxation system which allows taxing only to value added services. So production is cheap. Plus, China doesn't charge on export. And the US doesn't have import duty for Chinese goods. China charges on import.
