Unless you have been living under a rock for the last decade,we all know that China is a rapidly growing economy.However,is this growth sustainable with China's aging population? Do you think that it can even become successful if it remains politically unchanged? Also do you think that it will able to stay ahead of other economic and military competitors such as India/Russia? Do the west fear of a strong and successful China? What are your thoughts on China's rise?

I think it's scary... I don't think Capitalism will live along side Communism for much longer without some kind of confrontation.. it's inevitable

It's still got a long way to go. I went back last August and it's still not that amazing imo, despite the economic growth.

Almost everything in my house has a 'made in china' label on it. Most of the chinese population that do the majority of the work have underpaid jobs, whilst the big economic distributers are the ones that are rolling in with the money. I think a chinese revolution will start sometime in the future ;D

It's great, it's gonna boost our economy loads. The Chinese spend tonnes and tonnes of money in London especially, and buying companies, property etc.

And yes, lol at calling China communist. They're pretty much the most capitalist country in the world - they have the biggest rich/poor divide.

An economy based solely on exports can only be sustained for so long. Japan went through a similar phase in the 80s, and then the presumed rise to superpower for Japan never happened. Neither will it, imo, with China.

Tbh, they're different in many ways.

About time China used its potential. It is only natural that they would have eventually got this level of growth, especially with such a centralised system.

I wouldn't consider the Chinese communist at all though, especially economically. And for now China is slowly leaning towards the methods we are accustomed to in the West. That said, considering the single-party system, it only requires a single hard liner at the top to reverse such change in policy and who knows who is in charge tommorow.

That said, no real confrontation, even to the level of the Cold War (let alone to the level of a World War) will happen for a whole generation. And by then, it is very hard to predict what will happen by then.

China has been growing rapidly for the past 30 years at nearly 10% for 30 years consistent. It has lasted this long, why not for another 30 years.

But to be honest, China has a population of 1.3 billion, it should for the benefit of its people have a strong economy. China has also improved in terms of human rights over the years. They did far worse things 30-20 years ago, in comparison to today's outlook on things. At least things are improving and this is coming from someone who is Taiwanese!

LOL at this.

Edit: if everyone lives as we do in our western lifes we will need 3 planets to sustain ourselves. China's rise is beneficial for now, but when resources start to run out and their economic power dwarfs Europe and threatens the USA we are in some serious sh*t

How dare you show Lord Vader in that form!! He will execute you, for sure!



P.S.

In answer to the OP - China is already the leader. The USA has fallen behind - not to mention that China has footed some of its bills...

This is the mistake China is making. They have not passed the US yet not militarily nor economically and will not for the next 10 years. After that however...

Soon we'll be the people in sweat-shops making trainers for the Chinese.
Our children will have to work 7 days a week alongside us just so we can eat!

It has to be stopped! Kill! Kill!
