China planned to invest into Africa by building a huge city all at once. How would that work? Africa is poor enough what makes you think that building thousands of houses costing at the cheapest $80,000 when an average citizen there makes £1.30 a day. China International Trust and Investment Corporation decided to build this without ever asking the question of who can afford to move here? Sebastiano Antonio, 17 has to travel 3 hours a day just to attend school there. The whole project costed $3.5 billion.

When I found this I instantly thought of the game Sim City. My cities always fail when I instantly try to create cities without first building up to that point. The Chinese corporation should learn something from playing Sim City. The thought of building a city instantly might seem like a good idea, but is very unrealistic. A city can not just appear without sources. For instance Dubai seemed like it just sprouted off the earth, but they have oil, and a lot of it. Personally I would invest into creating better paying jobs for the African people first. With better paying jobs Africans then can afford homes. It will take a long time for this to happen though. I do not understand the concept behind building expensive houses without providing jobs.
