This looks like Aloha Tower and the 2nd floor of the International Market Place.

Even though it might sound ridiculous...maybe cities like that are built for...us. If China decides to collect their U.S. debt, I'm sure we can't pay it. So the only thing we have with some value would be...a workforce. A "lazy" one, mind you...but a workforce nonetheless. Americans shipped over there to work for them, to pay off U.S. debt.

Another ridiculous scenario I thought of (I'm on a roll...of ridiculousity!!), China could decide "Well, since you can't pay...give us Hawaii, for starters (or call it even)." Hawaii is, or can be, a moneymaker under the right conditions. Under U.S. rule there's so many restrictions. Under Chinese rule, if people currently here don't like it, China coiuld always say "You don't like it, move to one of the other 49 states...bye-bye."

So yeah, that's how my ridiculous thoughts are for now...

Give China 30 years when their population hits the same problems we are facing x 500%.
