China’s Bournville

I was always impressed with stories of how great industrialists in the 18th and 19th century would build towns, amenities and create communities for theie employees to feed the need for labour. Having visited the Samsung campus in Korea on a number of occasions one appreciates that this idea continues, just not in the UK. It moves to where things are made, where a large workforce is needed. Another nice example is the 250,000 employees at Foxconn, Shenzen. If only this country had 250,000 unemployed 18-25 year olds who needed to work and the factories to accommodate them.
