Just to make a point clear. What makes prosperity possible is complexity. Complexity creates stability. This can be proven with math–as if it isn’t obvious. Democracy is a check and balance on the militant power of China. If the West falls, as some think it should, there will be no check and balance on China’s militancy. If you invest in the Ghost Cities of China under those circumstances, you will lose money. But if the West survives and thrives, it will be safe to invest in the Ghost Cities of China and they will come to life. Without the balance of Western power, an american or european moving to a city in China would have the life expectancy of a democracy protester in Tiananmen Square. Democracy in the West means prosperity in the East.
