To be honest, I'm surprised this didn't happen long ago. It sure seems like it did. It also seems as if it were handed to them on a silver platter by greedy and corrupt plutocrats with no thought to the consequences but only to their own pockets. And finally, this won't even put a dent into improving anything for the average Chinese person. It makes me feel really good to think that a communist government with horrendous human rights issues is a leader in this global economy. Don't you agree?

Perhaps my generation is a bit older than you, I was born in 1960, so my parents did very well during the 60s and 70s when we were growing up.

Get over it. Our western nations have long exploited and manipulated anyone and everyone to get their wealth. What goes around comes around.


Oh is that so? I'd love to hear more about this.

I think it is a mixture of generation and class. I'm sure there must have been a rather large group of people who didn't do as well as your parents during the 60's and 70's for whatever reason. And there were those that did better. How good things are depends on who you ask.

Oh...national security is indeed in jeopardy. Think about it...in terms of military hardware, in terms of port security. And lest we forget snafus like us giving China the codes, not to mention blueprints, to our DoD satellites and other hardware a while back

Well at least Google figured it out for what it's worth. They are coming back; plus many manufacturing companies are starting to realize that there is a much longer lead time in getting materials to the consumer from China. China can not continue on the way they have been going with out putting a REAL value on their currency. IT WILL IMPLODE.

At one point, about 4-5 years ago, when I was debating the topic, "Who Would Do Better...the U.S. Without China or China ithout the U.S.," I found economic stats on the Chinese governments website. Their exports to other countries, without the U.S. even factored in, at that time, was already enough to keep their economy afloat. I don't think that information is there any longer.

Another tidbit about China that always sticks in my head is how IBM sold their personal computer division to a communist government (the government owns the companies there), people and all.

Also China holds the biggest contracts from the US defense, something that makes our so call national security something to laugh about.

If you research ATS when we used to have the above politics board you will find many threads that some of us did into how China will eventually take over the US economically, this was back in 2004 and 2005 even before the financial crisis, many people in these boards actually believe back then that China was nothing but stilla middle ages country.

Even when many posted that China was emerging and emerging fast.

Many that are not longer in this boards posting but I would love to see their reaction on the China issue now.

So much for the middle ages country, specially after the many pictures of how China looks during the Olympics.

Yes is many areas in China that are nothing but provinces still in the middle ages but baby have they come a long way and very fast.

I remember. I was actually here then. I lost my name in some changeover or another. There's a lot of history here many don't realize.

I know, we have archives in ATS that tells back many years ago what is happening today.

So many smart people and good analyst in this board that many take for granted, (BTW I am just a regular person).
