As the United States and China battle over the finer points of currency manipulation at the G-20 summit, American negotiators may want to take note of this startling testimonial to the productivity of Chinese workers: A construction crew in the south-central Chinese city of Changsha has completed a 15-story hotel in just six days. If nothing else, this remarkable achievement will stoke further complaints from American economic pundits that China's economy is far more accomplished than ours in tending to such basics as construction.

Yeah, like I’d want to stay in a 15-story hotel built that quickly. One good sneeze could bring it down.
Amazing what you can accomplish without labor unions and environmentalists.
See how much you can get done when you don't have union goons and city hall bureaucrats to deal with?
How soon before its’laying on its’side?
"Goooooooooooood morning Changsha!"
Note that it was a pre-fab steel structure, and the site was already fully prepared and all materials were in position.
Regardless, it DOES point out - China has been able to take the most useful aspects of modern technology and productivity, and apply it to manufacturing without the union/bureaucratic/regulatory/tort/ BS that we in the USA add to it.
Is this anything like Dear Leader scoring 11 holes in one the first time he played golf?
“I’m so roanree...Fore!”
I would have paid good money to watch this
ANYTHING is possible with an unlimited supply of slave labor.
—Great Wall of China
—etc. etc. etc.
1 billion slaves helps.
There’s no way I’d stay in that hotel. I understand they don’t have the unions and environmentalists but that’s just a little too fast for a 15-story building.
I hope they got to rest on the seventh day.
You could never do that in this country. The Unions would not let anyone work that hard or long. This would take at least 4 years in this country.
This isn’t all that impressive. There’s a business leadership video out there called “The Two Hour House” where people in San Diego actually built an entire house in less than two hours. Of course it was preceeded by months of planning, extensive pre-fabrication, and a team of hundreds that had planned and practiced ahead of time. But it shows how almost anything can be accomplished if the prep work is comprehensive enough.
No city restrictions. Maybe no building codes?
No lawsuits, inspectors and so forth.
No Structural Engineering nor building inspections, either?
What the heck are those?
“Chinese workers build 15-story hotel in just six days “
Sure they weren’t Amish?
