  • China poised to pass USA as leading economic power

    This is all Bush's fau.... wait...

    I'm not going to post any articles because you'd have to be living under a rock not to know of this story.

    I must say though that in one article, economists predicted China would pass the USA as the leading economic power in 2019. But good old Barry made sure that wasn't going to happen!!

    It is only fair, we have been the bullies for too long. We are already falling out as the preeminent military super power.

      A question I have though, will China and the other countries that pass USA offer the support to the rest of the world? Will the expectations be the same for those countries to donate money after natural disasters, send military aid to their allies, etc. in the extent of what America had and was expected to do?

              America voted for hopenchange so we have to live with it, for now. Hopefully we can restore our country before we are the ones working for a bowl of rice.

                Uh hello, China. Obama is putting our military at pre-WWII levels. The only thing that is stopping Russia and China from totally spanking our butt is we still have nukes and the big O is trying to get rid of all of those. The damage he is doing will take years to undue and that will only be accomplished if we have a Republican President and both houses.

                How can we be obese and starving at the same time? How can we be poor but, have a roof over our head and a TV and Cell phone and McDonalds at all times of the day?

                God Bless America

                  I am just simple street deputy, but I always here that our defense budget is bigger than the next 5 countries combined. So which is it? If China is taking our spot, how could we be bigger than China and 4 other powerful countries?

                  Also, do they have a real deep water navy? Having one or two "standard" or short aircraft carriers in dry-dock doesn't equal superior naval force projection.

                    We spend more on defense than the next 10 biggest spenders combined(China,Russia,France,Saudi,Japan, India,Germany,Italy,Brazil). Out of that list, how many are we in danger of having a big land/conventional war with in the next 50-100 years with? The answer is 0. We need to concentrate on ISR, Cyber, and Special forces. Look at the number of aircraft carriers we have, in relation to the world. I think we have about 17, and the rest of the world has about 12 combined.

                      Nope, China is on its way to becoming the world's largest economy. That's not the same as "leading economic power."

                      With a population about four times that of the United States, what do you expect? 1.3 billion people building, buying and selling stuff will inevitably generate more economic activity than 314 million people.

                      When the line's crossed it will simply mean that the hypothetical average Chinese worker is just a bit more than 25% as productive as his US counterpart.

                        Those of you looking to point the blame towards Chicago should be paying more attention. Our losing economic ground to China has been happening long before the current administration took power.

                        I'd look more closely at Bentonville, AR...

                            This is easy. It's the fault of whomever is president at the time.

                              Beware of Chinese gold bars. Some of them are gold-clad tungsten alloy bars. China is the world's leading tungsten producer. The density of tungsten is very close to that of gold. Alloyed with the right other metals the density can be made to be virtually identical.
