I'd like to know the name of this song/singer. Google doesn't know. Perhaps a community of music lovers...

Very nice piece of investigative reporting. Some of the figures cited are astounding. China is developing at a rate of 10 cities (not building complexes; not subdivisions; cities) per year, some of which look like ghost towns. The biggest shopping mall in the world (according to the NYT) is practically empty after some years. There's an estimated 64 million empty apartments.

This is insane. 64 Million open apartments many of which, have terms of 50% down upfront and balance in 3 years, and of which, the price is 15x the average yearly wage of industrial workers.

Maybe we are borrowing money from china because we know their currency value will collapse harder than ours ever could.

The various implications

"With an abundance of workers to choose from, employers are demanding more of job candidates than ever before. They want prospective workers to be able to fill a role right away, without any training or ramp-up time.

In other words, to get a job, you have to have that job already. It's a Catch-22 situation for workers—and it's hurting companies and the economy."

"My favorite email came from somebody in a company that had 25,000 applicants for an engineering position and the staffing people said none of them were qualified. Could that really be possible?"

Today (11/11/11) is the last binary day of the year and the last until January 1st, 2100. For some of us, it will be the last time we'll see one.
