We have a similar case here in Germany : The MMC desaster … http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Magic_Media_Company
There doesn't seem to be an English-language article von it … But from what I've read in the newspapers, it's an similar soap opera …

One of the greatest German soap operas, however, is that of the WCC in Bonn, the former German capital : http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_C…ce_Center_Bonn

The investor was a company called SMI Hyundai.
What politicians and the bureaucracy not realized, however, was that this company had NOTHING to do with "the other" well-known Hyundai company … The chief of that company is the arrested Man Ki-Kim, and the abbreviation SMI stands - according to the newspapers and the Wikipedia article - for "Susi, Mimi, I".

Basically everyone fell prey of an impostor. Sad that so many buildings had to be erased for this massive, ill-fated building. It is still a ruin, will generate huge costs, and no-one knows whether it will really see proper running.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
