WaPo forgot to mention Amerikwa

"George Orwell once said that 'if liberty means anything at all, it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear,' a quote that Martinez says 'summarizes the spirit' of his project."

Yes, because telling paper of record-reading, NPR-listening Amerikwans that China, Russia, et al aren't as strong as they appear to be requires so much intellectual, moral, and physical courage.

This is the dumbest shit I hear from naysayers all of the time. I seriously doubt China is going through the hassle of building entire cities just to inflate some accounting bullshit. China thinks long term, and even if cities aren't occupied a few months after being built, they stillneed them as they forsee the long term need. Compare that with the massive structural problems we have in America that no one is fixing, despite most people agreeing it needs fixing

China is a long term thinking state sponsored capitalist society. America is closer to a free market, short term thinking consumerist society. This leads to different paths to development

The Chinese economy is a house of cards. Economists thought it was inconceivable for that many people to be pulled out of poverty so quickly, and I guess they were right. China is practicing fake it till you make it economics, aka a Ponzie scheme. They keep promising 10% yoy growth and eventually they won’t be able to fudge the numbers enough, the people will start getting uneasy and start pulling their money out, leading to cataclysmic results.

My personal take from actually having been in Russia is everyone has a lot more money than you think. Most of the economy is grey or black market. No one pays any taxes at all. And the biggest problem for the government is basically a zero % level of tax collection outside of oil and gas. People wont even pay a 25 cent toll to drive over a bridge.

They're just sending him personal checks. You know, since they're actually waaaay richer than any of us would believe on average (unlike these dumb poor AmeriKKKans) but also smart enough to collectively hide it.

Autocratic states have weak levels of public trust. Nobody pays taxes, bro. It takes a culture with high levels of public trust for democracy to thrive and taxes to be paid. The Russkes love their Czar and hate their state. They don't pay taxes. Russia is very right wing too. Conservatives don't do taxes.

It has nada to do with population and everything to do with aluminum smelting and petro chemical production. Nothing uses electricity like an aluminum plant.
