With a generous infusion of Saudi Arabian cash, officials in Beijing are planning a $1.3 billion hotel inspired by the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, pictured. They hope the "seven-star" hotel will become a Beijing landmark, according to the Beijing Morning Post (via China Daily).
An unnamed Chinese official told AFP that the Saudis are to fund the entire hotel (whose seven stars are self-appointed, as no formal agency doles out more than five stars to hotels). It's unknown whether the building will try to top the half-mile-tall (2,717 feet) Burj Khalifa.

we've heard about China copying successful items and selling knockoffs and lots of us know that they do not recognize copyrighted material, but this does 'take the cake".
Its nothing! I once red a conspiracy theory that the First Humans were Chinese, who were actually created by some GOD/Aliens. Those Chinese were perfect Humans & did stuffs like Flying, Shaolin Kung-Fu, generating energy balls etc.
Guess what happened next??
Those Chinese copied the Gods/alien technology too & made some faulty human models like us
If they have permission I think its cool!
Some even believe that the Chinese discovered America long before Columbus.
The Chinese economy is dependent on Growth and expansion. If they stop their economy will collapse. In 20 years, where do you think they will be expanding? Take into consideration that there are at least 12 males for every female in China. There's either going to be a whole lot of male aggression going on or there's going to be a very Gay country. I'm thinking the aggression will play out first then they'll play with each other...
Don't forget what happened to Japan. In a lot of ways countries were feeling even more threatened by Japan's rapid and seemingly invincible rise after world war 2. Now look at japan. It's had about 20 straight years with a stale economy after it's bubble blew in the 80s.
In a lot of ways china is far worse off on the bubble front. Japan has a lot of technological know, and a more stable economic system to fall back on after their big collapse. But China doesn't make anything of their own, they just copy and can't come up with anything new, and almost all of their investment comes from abroad, not internally. They are heading for a meteoric collapse and are going to drag the entire worlds economy down with them. The only question is when.
When it happens it's going to be ugly too. The newly empowered middle class in china are going to flip out, and the regular workers are going to be idle and out on the streets and idle hands cause problems.....
