Vietnam Empty Office Towers Show Dreams Turned to Rubble


What went wrong in Vietnam’s property market

From afar, the gleaming metal and glass edifices of Hanoi’s EVN Tower illustrate Vietnam’s rapid economic development. Up close, the rubble-strewn entrance and missing windows tell another story: one of loose lending and property speculation that now hangs over the country’s banks.
