China first.

Just listened to a very interesting lecture at Harvard today, about China, and the likelyhood of it being number one.

What came up at the end was not that America might have to figure out how to cope with being number 2, it was how would America cope with being number 3 when it gets eclipsed by India.

Re: China first.

China is already #1

#1 in population

#1 in exports

#1 in active troops

#1 in rice consumption


of course...

#112 in female life expectancy

#79 in GDP per captia

#110 in Index of Economic Freedom

#133 in Environmental Sustainability Index

#105 in Internet users - percent of population (%)

#177 in Press Freedom Index



I won't be moving to China.  China's GDP is greater than that that of UK, Canada, Australia, Switzerland, Norway, etc.  I'd rather live in any of those than China.  China's GDP is thousands of times greater than Grenada and Grenada is a better place than China.

Re: China first.

Some folks are obsessed with being number one, yet those folks are usually #1 in the #2 business.
