    This is interesting.

    And then you have the effect on the Chinese Banking system. Imagine what happened in the US happening in China...but where their are way way more empty properties that won't go from 500K to 300K but from 500K to 10K or less. After all they are not well made concrete boxes in the sky. They don't really have a high intrinsic value, especially when 100-500 million properties suddenly become open for sale.
    Lol.

    I wonder why it got such high ratings?

    It suggest Wumoas try to stifle discussion by posting about trivial points and using whataboutism.

    It does sound familiar

    Interesting, as it claims the total opposite.

    In this randomly selected training set, like the last, we find no evidence of taunting of foreign countries, although we
    did find a handful of posts in the category of argumentative praise or criticism, constituting only 3% of the posts.

    Since you got it wrong, who's in actual fact stifling discussion by referring to opposing viewpoints as wumaos?
