I have constructed this thread along with supporting links to discuss China's ever rising power,

Below is a article which sheds light on a few points:

And another outlining impacts that the rise of china may/will have on our current set-up:

This final article is quite long and detailed but covers a good amount of the topic and i found it to be a good read, as its more from 1 mans point of view:

Also by looking at the graph above it can clearly be seen that Thier trade was greater than that of the united states in recent years (well 2008 at least) But as you all know whoever controls the trade controls the money, And whomever controls the money controls the world

So yeah some of your thoughts and Oppinions would be great from you experts

There is no doubt China is on the way up.

However, just as a counterweight, let me toss out the following phun phacts about the Chinese economy:

    - Excess floor space exceeds 3.3 billion square meters and there are still 200 m being built this year.
    -The price to rent ratio is 39.4 times versus 22.8 times in America before the housing crises.
    - Banks are hiding their exposure in Local Investment Vehicles.
    - On a Sovereign level, China’s debt to GDP comes out at 107%, five times published numbers.
    - China has consumed just 65% of the cement it has produced in the last six years.
    - There are 200 m tons of excess steel capacity, more than the EU and Japan’s total production this year.


There is now enough EMPTY office space in China to give EVERY MAN, WOMAN, AND CHILD in China (yes, all 1.2 billion of them) an empty cubicle. That is just completely insane.

I'm not saying China will crack up and fall apart but there are a lot of unsettling signs that harcore China bulls just don't want to acknowledge.
