Amazing. The world order is definitely shifting. Soon everything Chinese will be considered sexy by the materialistic west. Mark my words.

If American business owners had a never ending supply of desperate poor people to exploit more of them would be billionaires.
|by Anonymous||reply 7||Last Thursday at 4:06 AM|
Having more billionaires is no point of pride. All it does is highlight gross wealth inequality.
While Beijing has billionaires, I'm sure New York has far fewer people eats bats and rats, shitting in the streets, and living in sewers.

Good luck with that. I'm not a billionaire, but I would never invest money in a country were the political regime can just expropriate you and throw you into prison. Also, who the fuck wants to live in China when you have enough money to live in beautiful places like Paris, London or St. Tropez?

Good. Billionaires destroyed NYC. I wish that number was ZERO
|by Anonymous||reply 13||Last Thursday at 4:28 AM|
The city of Beijing has a population of 22 million people. NYC is only about 8.4 million people. Percentage wise it's far smaller.
Anyway, what is so great about having a concentration of wealth.

I don't see China becoming this economic juggernaut. They import most of their fossil fuels and with Peak Oil they, like the rest of the world will find it difficult to keep the manufacturing going in twenty years.
Solar and wind turbine energy require MASSIVE fossil fuel inputs to build AND maintain, so without ABUNDANT fossil fuels there will be no solar or wind energy. Basically were FUCKED.

If the CCP would just change its name, there'd be a lot less hostility from ignorant dummies in Middle America. How about the People's Party? Or the Social Democratic Party? Or the Nationalist Party—co-opt Taiwan's own founding party's name.

But it's in freefall, R52. By the end of the century, it's likely to be around 500m which is still larger than the US, but nowhere near the current figures.

r1, I hope this process means people like you stop frequenting sites created by Americans, with the majority of their content geared towards Americans, and the majority of their visitors from America. Really lean into the idea that the world would be better if the USA were a non-factor and GTFO off our sites (to start). Anything less is hypocrisy and any justification for not frequenting the Chinese Datalounge is an excuse.
