NYT | Malaysian insta-city becomes a flash point for Chinese colonialism — and capital flight

News

Off the southern coast of Malaysia, a futuristic city is rising from the sea… In the last two decades, more than 100 new cities have been (or are being) created from scratch, according to Sarah Moser, an assistant professor of geography at Montreal’s McGill University, where she runs a research lab that tracks new cities. These recent additions to the map tend to arise in developing countries like Morocco, Nigeria, Uganda, Myanmar and Indonesia.
