"China" is not buying real estate. Chinese nationals looking for a good investment/escape hatch are buying.

A better comment would be China is buying up most of Africa. By this i mean they outright own a ton of resources from mining to forestry and exporting it out if Africa. The problem us the African governments profiting but local employment taking a huge dive as chinese companies ship in their own cheap labour. Yes, as per the article they are investing 9 times more in Europe but dont assume thats in assests. Thats simply the fact that Africa is cheap to "buy".

Cant say i could.. was born in the 90’.

Maybe its just me but i feel like Japan back then was a lil’ less shady then these chinese pseudo-government controlled companies basically buying themself into power in Europe.

Japan has been a reasonably functioning democracy. That's the difference. With Europe, if worse comes to worst they can nationalize Chinese assets, which is the argument that was made against the panic in the US in the 80s.

But unlike Japan, China can do something about that.
