The Chinese have a 20times better work ethic than any western country.
Read part 4 of the article linked to at the bottom of this post. The work ethic is almost just forced on them because they have no alternative. One of the reasons for that work ethic is they know they can't change anything about how they work. The police are called if a worker refuses to do his job (right to strike was removed in 1982).
They also have a lot more people, a lot more money.
The number of people is irrelevant. China has loads of money because the U.S. and other countries buy their products. China depends on other countries to thrive just like any other country.
Soon they'll get freedom of speech (although from what I can tell most Chinese arn't fazed by it) and then yeah, they'll be the new superpower
I'm not sure where you got that from. China giving it's people freedom of speech would be a stupid move. China is a communist country and communism is working very well for them because they run everything with no backlash from people. Give those people freedom of speech and they ask for more freedoms which would eventually lead to rebellion, riot, etc. Not to sound harsh or anything.
Same with India, I like Chinese culture though so I dunt care.
Awesome, so you're biased to China? So why are you making fun of people who are biased to the U.S.? I'm referring to your reply a few posts up when you said "Stop being so patriotic perhaps?", you're certainly not being patriotic but you're showing bias. Which in my opinion completely makes your argument invalid.
Today it was in the news that China is the 4th biggest publisher of scientific research. Trust me, they're hoarding money and soon.. muhaha.
So being 4th makes you the best now? I want this insider info you must have of what China is going to do with the money that they have "hoarded" by the way.
Also when they finally yet the RMB(quai ) be controlled by the world market things will change drastically.
Sichen (I dont no how to spell chinese )
Add English to the list of languages you can't spell in. Even with spell check.
I'm not arguing whether China may or may not become an economic superpower or that the U.S. may or may not be going downhill, I'm arguing that China won't control the world. My point is why would China want to change anything if everything is working so well for them now.
Oh and in my opinion this article is a good read on why China is quickly becoming an economic superpower.Red China, Inc. Does Communism Work After All?
China > America in certain aspects but America > China in others. Neither is completely better than the other. America's economy sucks, China's standard of living sucks. Both have their pros and cons.
I'm 99% sure you won't read any of the article before saying anything and you'll probably end up posting more mindless dribble that you're pulling out of your ass so that's all I have to say about this.
Oh and I don't support communism for all you reading this thinking "omg he likes communism". I'm just saying communism works economically for China.
