    Will China end up owning the World?

    It is really hard to see, how China won't end up owning everything. Most manufacturers have relocated their production base to China, the country is completely controlled by the Government, which directly funds all facets of development. It is difficult to see how they will fail.IMO In our...

    Has China Run Its Race?

    It seems China has realised that its trading partners aren't doing well, so maybe they aren't either. Running an autocratic business will always result in favourable monthly/annual financial reports but it will catchup eventually. I suspect China will have to take stock and look at its real...

    China plans to create new Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank Thoughts? I wouldn't have thought it'd be that easy to just create another IMF? Is this why China has been hoarding gold all this time?

    Growing US isolationism in tandem with exclusionary policies toward China

    China on the brink of Catastrophe?

    Did anyone see Four Corners last Monday ? China's boom is based on borrowed money from "shadow banks", and if these debts are called in, China's economy could crash and take the rest of the world with it. It could make the...

    I thought i would start this thread to post up some articles of how polluted the air, water, soil is here in China. No wonder all that can afford it, are buying land overseas. Last night was Lunar New Year. In what was already a smoggy day, the local tradition of lighting massive amounts of...

    The China Bubble

    Hi All, I'm raising this issue to see what peoples thoughts are. I personally currently see China as the next most likely country to have a serious crash. Whilst other countries do look arguably crook in their own ways, do to specific things (US monetary and fiscal policy, for instance), as...

    I think I prefer the old China. The new china at a glance: - corruption deeply entrenched in every aspect of society, especially big business and the ruling reds. - female infanticide (the chinese all want boys to carry on the family name so a lot of the baby girls get dumped in the toilet or...
