    These Chinese Mainlanders are are so gullible, still trusting White man for not having bad intentions:
    Yes, crowd these rich Chinese in one apartment location to spare a large portion the other rich racist White man from other condo having to mingle with the Chinese millionaires.
    Secondly, when it time of conflict between USA and China, it's easy for the American government to round them up in one quick swoop as a hostage in time of war.
    Thirdly, it is cheaper and more efficient for the American government to spy on all those rich Chinese family and collect useful blackmail data in the whole condo.

    This is an interesting side of investing and us real estate. Could you guys do a video on how people are affording million dollar condos? Organizations cover expensive luxury items because it brings attention but no one ever covers how the people can afford them.

    Bahaha with the SALT tax cap and current politics real estate in Manhattan has flatlined, even slightly decreased. If you want a good investment buy in Phoenix or Austin or Charlotte which is fast growing.

    We give the Chinese paper (dollar) to buy the crap they produce that mostly ends up in the trash than they come over here and give us our worthless paper back in exchange for luxury properties. That makes allot of sense.

    I don't see any wrong with it. They buy a house not like they rob people. More money for US, more housing value.

    30 years ago, Japanese bought many historical apartments and townhouse in New York. Empire State Building and Rockefeller Center weren't also an exception.
    But the American government made Japanese yen surrender by Plaza Accord. Donald Trump was aggressive by targeting China just now. Let's see what happens.

    Idiots, new york is one of the worst states to invest in property. They have super high property taxes and income tax. If the goal is just to get money out of china you would be better of investing in other states!

    China is communist evil country. People should invest all their money into India. India is more polite and very innocent country. People should not invest in china’s communist dictatorship.
