Why is China building ghost cities?
I spoke to someone in chatroom who is Mongolian, and knew about these. She is scared to death to talk about them. WHY?

Google Earth photographs reveal towns completely devoid of people
Why is China constructing large, well-designed ghost cities that are completely devoid of people?
Google Earth photographs of China depict cities of vast complexes consisting of office skyscrapers, government buildings, apartment buildings, residential towers and homes, all connected by networks of empty roads, with some of the cities located in China's truly most inhospitable locations.
Nobody lives in these ghost cities after billions of dollars have been spent on them. The photographs look like a disaster has eliminated people, leaving the buildings intact. One of China's ghost cities is built in the middle of a desert in Inner Mongolia.
All these buildings are owned by very wealthy, some illuminati and other world elite
Cities meant to be home to millions lying deserted.
64 million empty homes in 20 new cities being built every year in the vast swathes of free land in China and Mongolia.
December 18, 2010 Satellite images show sprawling cities built in remote parts of China that have been left completely abandoned, sometimes years after their construction.
Elaborate public buildings and open spaces are completely unused, with the exception of a few government vehicles near communist authority offices.
LOOK at photographs and where cities are
Of the 35 major cities surveyed, property prices in 11 including Beijing and Shanghai were 30 to 50% above their market value.
Prices in Fuzhou, capital of the southeastern province of Fujian, had the worst property bubble with average house prices 70% higher than their market value.
Kangbashi in Inner Mongolia
Kangbashi was meant to be the urban centre for wealthy coal-mining community Ordos and home to its one million workers.
Regional governments across China have been building massive real estate projects, including Kangbashi in Inner Mongolia and Zhengzhou New District, which have remained empty, because of the high prices and interest in investment.
Kangbashi, which was built in just 5 years, was meant to be the urban centre for Ordos City, a wealthy coal-mining hub home to 1.5 million people.
It was filled with office towers, administrative centres, museums, theatres and sports facilities as well as thousands of homes, but remains virtually deserted.

Mongolia mining boom Oyu Tolgoi, a new huge mine in the Gobi Desert, is a wealth of untapped deposits of copper, coal, gold, silver, tin, uranium,
and rare earth minerals used in most of todays advanced electronics. The mining boom is expected to triple the size of Mongolia
economy in the next 5 years. Could the April 13 earthquake in mongolia relate to blasting for the mine??

The riches under Mongolia Turquoise Hill
March 24, 2013 Beneath the Gobi desert lie gold, silver and copper, but exploiting them is tricky for Mongolian authorities.
Samand Sanjdorj may be the most influential Mongolian since Genghis Khan.
Sanj is from a modest background. He grew up in a ger (round felt tent).
He took a geophysics course at a university in Russia.
An international mining company sent him to the Gobi desert to investigate an interesting extrusion.
The local name for this extrusion is Oyu Tolgoi, or Turquoise Hill. The green stains that gave it its name are a clue to the minerals within.
Sanj results rapidly suggested a very unusual geological formation.
What Sanj and his colleagues discovered is reckoned to be the greatest unexploited reserve of copper, gold and silver on the planet.
Mongolia has always suffered dzuds, extreme winter - they are becoming more frequent. In recent years they have killed many millions of camels, yaks, sheep, cashmere goats and cows on which the nation's herders depend.
The herders have brought their gers (tents) to town and have set up home in the hills around the capital.
In 10 years 1/4 of the Mongolian population has given up the lifestyle that has sustained their families for millennia.
And they want a share of Sanjs discovery. And that is where the problem lies.
The head of the mining company in Mongolia said countries that change the rules risk killing the goose before it has laid any golden eggs.
