      HK is nothing. HK's GDP is only 1/3.5 of the Guangdong Pearl Delta, mainly from CCP's corrupt money laudering business.( Macau's gamble GDP is only 1/10 of HK, please just ignore it). HK have no tech or business model innovations for the past more than 100 years.

      wonder if you have ever went to HK and Shenzhen China i see it yourself. By the way, the reason why the extradition law is being brought up because there this HK guy killed his girlfriend in Taiwan, there no extradition law between HK and Taiwan, Macao and China (while they have extradition agreement between western countries), so HK governmetn tries of close this loop hole by completing the extradition bill, this will affect westerners who committed crimes in Mainland China, Taiwan or Macao, more, because currently, there are a bunch of criminal hiding in HK, even spies, but the main reason is to extradite this HK criminal to Taiwan. But so many criminals who has been living well in HK, suddenly feels they will be extradite, now they are creating this chaos to make the bills unable to be passed in the legislation. If the same applies, HK should remove the extradition agreement between HK and the west, so it can totally became a heaven for criminals.

                    You can't compare your average "1 bedroom" because you do not not account for size. The "average" 1 bedroom in HK is around 100-150 sq ft. The average in San-Fran is closer to 600 sqft.

                      from what ive read people want to live in hong kong because of its freedoms and capitalism and uniqueness and unique culture, in some ways connecting hongkong to china and taking away the border and streamlining the laws could do the exact opposite of what it hopes to achieve, as it will make hongkong just another town/city/place in china, no longer of any particular economic or strategic importance perse or could be easily replicated elsewhere in china at that point.

                      hong kongs value is because of so many businesses and entrepreneurs so many students and immigrants and dreamers and inventors clustered in one relatively small area.

                      and hong kong being free is why people want to live there to a large extent, and the current economic system and governance it has is why historically businesses wanted to invest there and why it became the financial trading mecca of asia rivaling singapore back in the 70s and 80s.

                      basically china wants to tear down barriers thinking it will boost shenzhen and the mainland, but really it will more likely then not depreciate hong kong in value instead, as they will be basically shooting themselves in the foot destroying the very things that made them covet hong kong in the first place and press the british in the 1990s to give it back, they were pretty much content to let the british have it until it became more then just a enclave of free chinese and a few british american and austrailian ex-pats and retirees, and morphed into a global financial trading manufacturing center and major tourist port of call...at that point it became a black eye...they didnt want the world's exposure to china and chinese culture being from china towns around the world, from taiwanese and hongkong "made in china" products, and from what they considered "not china" china in terms of hongkong being tacitly permitted to be the public face of china/chinese culture to the world.

                      they still definitely wanted hong kong back someday since its considered to be their land/territory, but for the longest time they slowly took/asked for other british concessions in china back but left them have hongkong without seeming to care in the slightest as long as they got everything else back. originally the plans were to let them have macao back but keep hongkong or renegotiate the lease for however long the chinese would be willing to except and dangle macao to be allowed to keep hongkong, there was even talk in the 1990s from what i've read about trying to make hong kong independent or part of england or the us possibly someday, to satisfy the people living in hong kong and to solve the problem of "not china" china aka hong kong giving china a black eye by truly making hong kong its own entity or making it no longer china to solve the problem that way.

                      china though ended up converting to a form of capitalism itself on the mainland and if i recall the economy of hongkong was at one point by itself exponentially something like 80x greater or something like that then mainland china's or something i forget now, but it was essentially the economic engine/driver of all of asia for several decades, basically its success is what doomed hongkong because it became a "jewel in the crown" type of signature city that china decided it couldn't lose and desperately had to bring back into the fold

                      so essentially while they are trying to do a good thing by streamlining everything and interconnecting hongkong with macao and shenzhen etc and eliminating trade barriers and creating a larger "pearl city" as you called the area/development plans, it won't work unless they can find a way to continue the culture uniqueness exclusivity etc that make hongkong special and make people think of hongkong as a gateway city.

                      it needs to be like new orleans was originally intended to be for the united states sort of a gateway port of call and jewel city welcoming/beckoning everyone to come visit and filtering people into the country. only they need to execute on the concept alot better with hongkong as new orleans fell far short of any aspirations/plans/hopes/dreams people had for it, largely becoming just another city in many ways/respects.

                        It's not going to happen! Once Hongkong lose its autonomy, it will no longer be treated by US and UK with special previleges. Foreign companies will move out of Hongkong, killing the goose that lay golden egg. Even now because Hongkong is paralyzed they are losing billions of dollars everyday. China's yuan is worthless, monopoly money, only good inside China. Companies will not take yuan as payment. They will need dollars to be able transact business in the free world.

                          @World_ Peace Relax! You might get a heart attack. It's not the end of the world. Hongkong is in chaos, no longer making dollar for China and because Yuan is worthless, they devaluated it again to boost export, to gain much needed dollars. Now China will meet with US to get a trade agreement because they are in desperate need of dollars since again yuan is worthless. You don't buy oil using yuan, you use dollars. By the way, if US does not get what they want on that trade agreement in October, they will walk away and that would be music to my ears. LMAO

                                              Hong Kong is much cleaner and generally nicer place to live then generally mainland China. I've been in both places. And nobody tells you what to read, think, do unlike in mainland China. I think that's the main issue here, not different infrastructure projects. Polymatter seems in owe with Chinese megaprojects, forgetting the main thing which ultimatly makes successful nation: freedom.

                                                          ​@Michael Lee I agree that the CHinese will not come to HK, but not for the reason you are proposing. If it's a choice between the destruction of the HK economy from within by 1000 cuts due to these protests vs. the symbolic acknowledgement of the failure of "one country two systems" - China will choose the former.

                                                          I don't agree with your economic reason though. China has nothing to gain by sending their military police to Hong Kong. The only scenario I can see this happening is if Carrie Lam openly and publicly requests assistance - in that case, China may have no choice or lose face. However, since Carrie Lam is a loyal Beijing stooge, this is unlikely. Take care.

                                                          They could try military on Hong Kong which is basically suicide considering that HK has more than 70% of China's foreign capitals. If we didn't have such assets in our hands, we would have been eliminated already like Xinjiang.
