If it wasn't for the US, there would be no Chinese success story this soon. I mean, who would help them, Russia? Russia is scared of China, they are not going to help. Japan just about took over the place right before WWII. British gave Taiwan back not too long ago. India keeps to themselves along with most European Nations. Blue helmets at the UN will only help if it is anti-US and they get to control something of China's. NATO is a joke. That should stand for "Not Able To Organize".




It's kinda hard to convince others if you dun even have your facts right. You made my day, lol.

China maybe a ruthless Communist nation during the old days, but i respect the people now. They have passion and dream, willing to move the country forward. In 20 year's time, China will be the only dominant superpower predicted by respected politicans, economist and intellectuals. Yeah China is authoritarian and brutal in some ways, but does people think that US is perfect in all ways? Look lol their own CIA, research lol, they organize and orchestrate false-flag attacks, supporting despotic and dictatorial regimes, assassinate democratically-elected prime ministers and presidents and replaced with brutal and ruthless dictator. LoL is really USA a champion of human rights, peace and democracy...cmon......?

Im not siding any superpower nations by the way, im just pointing out facts.

I do not agree completely with #4 because the economy needs people to spend money in order to recover from this recession and maintain its state.

Could the world's lone but weary superpower actually learn something from China? It's a politically incorrect question, of course. China is an authoritarian nation; its ruling Communist Party deals ruthlessly with any challenge to its hegemony. It remains, relatively speaking, a poor, developing country with huge problems to confront, massive corruption and environmental degradation being Nos. 1 and 1a. Still, this is a moment of humility for the U.S., and China is doing some important things right. If the U.S. were to ask the Chinese what it could learn from their example, it might gain some insight into what it's doing right and wrong. Here are five lessons from China's success story:


1. Be Ambitious


2. Education Matters


3. Look After the Elderly


4. Save More

5. Look over the Horizon

sorry but is this is based on your perception alone? bcos there seems to be no evidence or whatsoever.


Btw, Taiwan was ceded to JAPAN, NOT British, so however can the British gave Taiwan back? Besides, there is this Taiwan conflict, and nobody can say for sure whether Taiwan belongs to China or not. China believes Taiwan belongs to them, while Taiwan does not. So, I wouldnt say that British 'gave back' Taiwan.


And, Russia is scared of China? Are you referring to the 'China Threat' theory, whereby other superpowers such as US, Japan and other neighboring countries are afraid of China because of China's potential to develop into a country that is even more powerful than today economically, militarily and politically? Though many predicted that Russia is intimidated by CHina's growth, I dont think it is right to say for absolute that Russia is scared of China. After all, how can one be very sure?

Americans are known to be a materialistic and a consummated pleasure seekers. If Americans want to learn from the Chinese they should learn to be frugal and not spend money wantonly.

The problem with US is that most of them likes to have a managerial position or jobs. They want to work in the office more or have a higher position and are not contended with the work they have. As a result, they will have to import manpower from other nations to at least compensate their manpower. How could a nation could boost their own manpower in where almost 50% above of their population wants to work in the office and hates labor oriented work.

Well comparing them to the Chinese, the Chinese are contended with the jobs they have. Not many of them dreams to be managers or work in the office either. As a result they have no problems in terms of manpower. Plus, one advantage of China is that their labor is cheap. Since most Chinese people as we are thrifty, having a small salary is not much of a problem to them I think. They know how to use their money where to spend it and when.

I guess Americans should stop dreaming of becoming managers and working in the office and instead find a work in where they could earn and benefit at the same time. Bigger positions does not always mean success...

1. Be Ambitious - this story shows how the US DOT is a JOKE, really, a joke! Everything the government gets involved in turns to shit. Decrease the size and let the private class take over.

u2. Government schools - US government schools just program kids now-a-days to be the perfect workers now. Just smart enough to run the equipment and dumb enough to do what they are told.

3. Elderly - Current US Government does not want to look after th ue Elderly anymore, why? Because the Elderly cost the government money by using health care. This is why the government is focusing on the middle age and younger. They use far less medicare and pay more into it. So, therefore, the government makes money not lose. Then turn around and give illegals free health care o.O

4.Save - Yes agreed, kick out all of the liberals and greedy politicians so we can.

5. look to the horizon - capitalism is slowly coming to china. The people got a taste of it and want more.
x

You're inorant in many level words can't explain. You know America has their soul(debts) paid for by china?which is why Cuba is thought to be communist while China is just ignored of that matter.

What's this about liberals? This land was build upon liberalism....... the constitution and the bor? News flash, don't watch too much animes
