Weirdly I was reading an article about this very subject this morning. It's something that's very popular with eco-fascists.

Edit: here's the article

They build cities and nobody is living in them. Obviously, China are preparing for the collapse of capitalism in the west. When the economies of the US and Europe do go into freefall, there will no longer be a high demand from these markets for Chinese goods. So, China is creating these cities so their citizens can move there (after western economies crash) and become consumers of the goods China will have previously exported to western markets.

This is a role reversal. China is set to become a consumer society. Western economies are really only fueled by low interest rates and the now dwindling wealth effects of QE. When western economies do crash, easy monitory policy will not work again, the scale of the problem will be too big. In short, the first world is set to become the third world.

To prepare, Ireland must go back to the small holder subsistant lifestyle of pre industrial China or to use another analogy, to pre famine Ireland. Why? If capitalism ends in the west, people will have to look after themselves. Or worse, the state will do it and that would be like Venezuela without the oil or sunshine.

Am I wrong?
What have you taken mate?

Haven't heard the end of capitalism theory since 2008.
Good to hear the old ones again.

I think it's lovely how completely wrong reasons why things happen can be twisted and presented as fact.

Ghost cities in China were not built for this reason, thus your entire premise collapses into it's own cesspool of broken thoughts.

Here's a conspiracy reality. Every time western economies go into free fall as you put it, there's a period of adjustment and the deck is re-stacked in the exact same manner with the same players in the right places. In short, outside of some catastrophic world wide disaster, the wealthy who run the world banks and economies aren't going away anywhere regardless of any economic free fall.

I swear you must be seeing fascists everywhere these days.

You remind me of those ones in 1950s America looking for Reds under the bed.

I just refer to them above as gobshytes.
