How about we focus on those things that actually gets people hurt, like banksters taking chances with the economy and politicians using the army to play chicken-race.

Both a red herring AND a false dichotomy. Impressive!

The "ghost cities" you talk about are actually gradually filling up as more population moves from rural settings into the cities - this has been a long term goal of the Chinese government, but their "long terms" are a fair longer than the "around next election time" terms that westerners tend to think in.

True, running a government is so much easier without that pesky democracy to get in the way.
