Low labour costs has being the key to all the economic growth of Asia.

Starting with Japan after WW2, followed by the 4 Tiger economies, etc.

Its not rocket science, nor is China's path revolutionary. The reason why the African economies have yet to catch up is due to;

a) Political instability,
b) Lack of infrastructure,
c) my favourite, actually listening to the World Bank.

hahahaha,good job, some agents from Falungong thought they know everything about China and believe the greate economic archivement(15% annual GDP growth rate in the last 25 years) are made by some misery "slaves" led by a "evil" and "unuseful" government.

If you travel to China, please never tell such kind of story to Chinese people otherwise they will laugh at you and consider you as a very naive western person who obviously know nothing about China.

But is the whole thread based on the wonderful economic analysis provided by the Falungong, which is obviousely better then Forbes or most of the Nobel prize winning economists?

Correct?
