They are expecting growth? – Yes, that seems clear.  While this may occupy workers in the construction of these cities, I think it is clear China is preparing to take over as the dominate economic engine of the world, perhaps they know this shift will happen rapidly, so building infrastructure in advance makes sense, and using likely soon to be near worthless US dollars to do it.

      That was a long and dry article to read, but it seems there is at least some concern even in China that they could be building their own version of a Real Estate Bubble.
