  1. So what you’re telling me that all of China’s infrastructure built with concrete could begin crumbling at around the exact same time.

    Here in the US are infrastructure was built at many different times and it is slowly falling apart one by one I can’t imagine what would happen if it were all built within three years of one another.

  2. US seems to favor urban sprawl where most housing is built out of primarily wood, while China has much more denser population living in concrete multi story residential buildings.
