Could China's development boom—spearheaded by the stalled construction of Sky City Tower, the world's next tallest building—signal economic downturn for the country? "The Panic of 1907 coincided with the construction of two record-breaking towers .. the Empire State Building completed just before the crash of 1929 ... Same with the original World Trade Center, completed just before the 1974 Stock Market Crash." Its all enough to get Gizmodo commenters in a tizzy about correlation/causation. [Gizmodo; previously]
