  1. Yes, That’s all very nice and so on, but the difference is that until China relaxes its capital controls, those Chinese people in those Chinese cities are restricted to buying product only in China (unless they go on an overseas vacation). So the GDP is captured and remains washing around the same old system. The Europeans are free to spend their money wherever they want. I don’t think you’d find any European especially wanting to swap places and going to live in a Chinese city with a higher GDP. It’s not about luxury this piece, its really about State managed economics.
