Unless they will some extra work in that open crown section I don't know about
Complete? Did I miss something? There's still quite some cladding missing on the tip, and don't forget about the huge openings right above the observation decks, as well as the base of the tower

I think they finished the basem and from some photos you can see the cladding has reached the top. I don't know about those openings.

Every angle of this building is impeccable, the whole (Bund area) look's clean and inviting from most views, looks great, I've seen some bad area's, but it seems like China has it going on! ( Every new super or Mega ,, is well Super) and Shanghai looks very clean, the smog doesn't look overwhelming like some/most say (maybe it's the time of year) .. Look at the recent photo's it's gorgeous,, and Guangzhou looks great as well..
I know the China economy has surpassed the US economy just recently,,, and it's really showing. Every other Country HAS to be impressed, at the rate and size of the Scraper's there building...

I love the view from the top thought... I was there a couple of years ago... Without the tour we wouldn't have the view. Eiffel, Paris, La Défense... What a view.

The view from up there is nice because that's the only place you won't see that ugly tower

If you look at GDP at PPP of IMF data you will see that in 2014 China passed USA. They will overtake Nominal GDP in around 2025. PPP is a better estimate because it measures overall economic activity and productivity whereas GDP Nominal measures how much goods you produce at the market exchange rate.

In fact, US officials claim that China deliberately weakens its Yuan as it appreciates so that China can have high exports - This means that officially China's nominal GDP is actually much higher than 9.5 trillion dollars- and that's according to US officials not me.

That's one [flawed] argument for PPP, but not the only one...
Nominal is the measure that makes sense if you're comparing actual economic activity, not the value of that activity.

Two different things.
