    Ghost Cities of China Kindle µ Ghost Cities Epub / ghost free, cities kindle, china kindle, Ghost Cities book, Ghost Cities of China ePUBA very readable profile on the Chinese real estate market which provides uniue insight on the legal and cultural structures that contribute to that market's strange conditions However I must fault the author with providing economic analysis that fails to uphold basic economic principles The author falls into the common trap of people who study China Many choose their study of China because of their love and admiration for the country This leads to an overwhelming compulsion to proclaim everything China does as a success This is shortsighted but not uniue to this book
