Well by the time we (the us ) are finished with the universe. China will be welcomed to what is left.

Really the whole planet in a few years will be in such a sad state.
Who cares!

Isn't the current economic growth taking place in India and China (and indeed many other Asian countries) very similar to the industrial revolution that occured in Europe and North America during the 1800s to early 1900s? (may not be exact dates) Except this time they also have modern ("space age") technology at the same time? Technically they're just modernising. It isn't like they'll just eclipse everyone else. (They'd have to discover new technology first)

Yes, China is simply evolving economically, much like the US and Europe did. By 2015, china will either become a democracy, or it will suffer from slower protracted growth rates not much faster than the EU and US.

China will not be taking over the world, probably ever. It will be a driver in the world economic outlook, but it will not be the main one. With the new figures on economic indicators painting China as a $5.33T (PPP) economy, which is down from the $10T PPP economy. So chinas economy is 40% smaller than we originally thought, India experienced the same drop off.

We have been overestimating the red dragons economic situation for the past several years. And it seems, that china, from the revised GDP figures, is much poorer to handle the domestic issues that will undoubtedly haunt the "would be" superpower.

India has a much brighter future than China does, as its economy is not totally reliant on the US and EU economy's (This is Chinas incompetence). Chinas future outlook on growth is unsustainable, in contrast to Indias.

Starred,

unfortunately westerners tend to forget their colonial era, and scratches on their head why non-westerners do not mimic the western standards of norms and values, and why non-westerners still remember something that westerners forgot for so long ago



This is probably because, no one alive in the western world today, was responsible for what happened in the past, as we were not alive. So that hardly has any baring on the current situation. This primitive mind set might be accepted in China, if for no other reason then to help them get a good nights sleep, but that is hardly the case in America, and in much of Europe in the modern age.

I should also point out, that we all should be very worried about the ecological disaster that is, and will become china. This will have far reaching consequences that affects us all directly.

Brought to you, by the"china boom." The Chinese are more concerned about money then they are their habitual surroundings. The worrying, and sad thing is, we all inhabit the same planet.
