Interesting post. I hope you don't mind, but I have some rather complicated questions.
1. What is the overall outlook in China regarding the set value of the renminbi against the US dollar, given that the Dollar is tanking on the global
I know that the inflation caused by the US government is endangering China's US holdings of some 2 trillion, and the US government does not seem to
desire to stop its deflation policy. (Possibly to devalue its debt, and pay back a lower value.)
Is there a general consensus to decouple the RMB from the USD, and allow the market to shape it's value, instead of allowing the USD to shape its
Well, this is a very complicated question indeed, We all know that USD will devalue and we'll lose money in this process. But change takes time,
China is already on the way to decouple RMB from USD, if u do some googling, u'll see china has been exchange currency with some countries with an
amount of around 100 billion USD, and this activity continues.
The Govt plans to built ShangHai as the next world financial center other than hongkong in 2020, i think this is to conduct the mission to push RMB as
a reserve currency, later we'll see more and more countries buy chinese products with RMB.
You Know there is a theory says that china and US are good bedfellow, china play the role of world factory and finance US military, US conduct
millitary operations and distribution organs like Wal-Mart all over the world to pave the way for chinese products, and that's why India block
Wal-Mart, cause they don't produce these products. Wal-Mart will not only take over their small shops but also unmature manufacturing industry, I
somewho agree with this theory, but after the crisis, we find that's not a perfect combition , hence we ask for change , but change takes time.
2. I have seen in global statistics that China (and alot of eastern asian countries) have an overall higher Average IQ than the rest of the world.
How do the Chinese view Intelligence as compared to Personality, Charisma, and Popularity?
I can not make comment on this kind of theory, cause there is no solid evidence to prove that, but I do think chinese are over controled that limit
our free thinking,
3. Concerning CCP Censorship:
Does the Media censorship extend merely to the Unquestioning support of the CCP, or does it extend toward the theme (of the US media) of outright lies
to the public?
What I mean, is:
When the CCP tells the public something, do they lie to the public and manipulate, or do they just tell the difficult truths, and allow the public to
draw their conclusions.
Do they attempt to "Sugar Coat" their agenda, and if so, to what extent?
CCP is propagandizing their theory of "constructing harmonious society", but people don't really believe that because of the media control and
sever corruption. u don't know what this party is acctually capable of, u know google do the filtering for the also, they block any materials they
want to, and reject any comment on riot incidents
4. How do Chinese view outsiders (immigrants) to their country, is there acceptance, guarded suspicion, Xenophobic exclusion, hostility, indifference,
You're all quite welcome!!! : )
5. Are their any large scale plans to restore and irrigate the Gurbantunggut Desert in Xinjiang, or the Gobi?
As far as I know, no such plans, just clarified by officials to comfort india concern a few days ago
6. What plans dos china have as far as Solar Power is concerned, or Alternative fuel for Cars?
cover 0.15 billion square meters by 2010, cover 0.3 billion square meters by 2020, sorry i cann't give the detail.
