Will China Overtake The United States?

in #life5 years ago


With the collapse of communism in 1989, the bipolar world order ended and the United States became the undisputed leader of the world. The failure of communism and the rapid growth in the US economy in the 1990s have led to a great deal of enthusiasm in Western countries. The free market economy is said to be a magic recipe for every problem. This enthusiasm had reached such a point that Francis Fukuyama declared the end of history in his book "The End of History and The Last Man" published in 1992. According to the prevailing view of the time, liberal values and the market order, which should not subject to any control, would spontaneously solve all problems in the world. As Russia and the former Soviet countries moved to the free market economy, Chinese communist regime, which implemented an original mix of free market economy and communism has continued.

The period of exuberant growth during the 90s ended with the explosion of the dot.com balloon in 2000. Technology stock prices fell to one fourth in two years compared to the peak it saw in 2000. Over the years, things have improved and a new period of rise has begun in the stock markets. The world economy was shaken again by the mortgage crisis in the USA in 2008 due to uncontrolled lending mechanisms and authentic financial assets. Especially in Europe, the crisis that has led to a long recession that seems to have been overcome for the past few years.

Chinese economy has been steadily growing since 1978.

This stable growth has made China the only economic power that can be compared to the US in the world.

The above data does not include year-end 2017. The chart below, including the 2017 year-end data, shows what will happen if China continues its successful growth story.

If Chinese economy continues to grow by 6.5% and the United States by 2%, China could surpass the United States in terms of GDP in the second half of the 2020s.

Although China has achieved an economy of up to 62% of the US in terms of total economic size, the US is at a standstill in per capita income. The development of per capita income statistics, based on purchasing power parity, is shown below.

In the discussions on whether developing countries can reach the same level to developed countries, there is a threshold called the medium income trap. In countries whose economy is based on exports, it becomes difficult to maintain economic growth as wages rise after a while. Countries such as South Africa and Brazil have not surpassed this threshold for years after reaching a certain economic size. Such a situation is also valid for Turkey. When evaluated on dollar basis, the Turkish economy has been counting on the same national income per capita for nearly 10 years. I wonder if after a while China will fall into the middle income trap? In order to judge, we need to examine the situation of China in terms of innovation and advanced technology.

Technologies such as internet and blokchain that enable me to deliver this article to you are of U.S. origin. Steemit is also a U.S. company. Does it make sense to discuss whether China will be able to pass the United States in a while?

My interest in China has increased with my researchs of the topics of advanced technology. I have obtained the following map of Google trends for search statistics of the word artificial intelligence. Dark blue indicates intense volume of searches.

Among the indicators we can measure the performance of a country in terms of advanced technology and innovation are the number of patents received, the number of published academic articles.

In 2017, for the first time in history China entered the world's top five in terms of the number of patents.

China has passed the United States in the number of academic papers published in 2016. Contrary to 426,000 articles published in China in 2016, 409,000 articles were published in the United States.

PISA results are one of the most important statistics to predict the future performance of a country. China is performing quite well in statistics that compare the performance of 15-year-old students in mathematics, reading and science. According to the results announced in December 2016, Chinese students' scores in mathematics were 531 and American students' scores were 470. In the field of science, Chinese students' scores were 518, while American students' scores were 496. When Singapore and Hong Kong are included in the picture, the picture becomes much more dramatic in favour of China. You can see the details here

Can China become the leading country in the world with its successful economic performance? To understand this, we need to look at social indicators as well as economic indicators. The Social Development Index, which measures the capacity of a country to meet the basic needs of its citizens and to provide them an environment in which they can maintain and improve their quality of life, can be a good indicator of this.

China seems to have a lot to do on this issue. In comparison to other developed countries, though, the United States is not at a good point with regard to these social indicators.

Will China be the leading country in the world by overtaking the United States? The gross national income of the United States passed England in 1899. Nearly 50 years after the United States became the leading country in the world. It happened after World War II. Even if China passes the United States in terms of GDP in the second half of the 2020, it seems that the leadership of the United States will continue for a long time.

The emergence of an alternative super power to the United States is good news for the rest of the world. A world order in which leading countries and opposing ideologies compete to convince the peoples of the world is better for us.

Thanks for reading.

The main reason China growing fast last 30 years is that China is the world factory. But the role is going to an end now. In order to overtake U.S., China has to beat U.S. in new technology in next decades.

I think china would beat U.S on a condition, and thats if the technology level of USA stops or declines which is not possible, its never been in the history of U.S.A that their technoly advancement delines, theres always provision ahead for the advancement in their technology ...

It also seems that China is ahead of the game in terms of app development. I mean WeChat is like a super app and not too mention their very Black Mirror-esque implementation of the Citizens Rating system...

America was the worlds factory for WW2. That's how we gained the economic drivers seat. At that time, made in America was a stamp of durability. The world is much bigger than technology. With the rise of cryptocurrencies, the playing field is much more level than it was. Those who serve always seem to rise to the top. They are willing to work long hard hours.

China has better government (yea it’s communist but it’s the most capitalist country in the world), they actually want to fix the flaws and really do things for people. There is also only one party in China meaning there is no conflict between parties. Having one party means that they don’t have to waste a bunch of time (time is gold) and tens of billions of dollars every 4 years just because people needs to elect a new leader. President in China is not elected by whoever that runs the prettiest campaign but by the National People’s Congress, judged by you as a person (good or evil), past contributions and achievement, moral, sense of justice, determination, thoughts, education etc… This cancels out the chance of a having a incompetent idiot who will run the country for the next 5 years.

Currently, US is the leader of world's economy but soon it will be overtaken with China if the huge businessmen withdraw the support from Pres Trump.

The issue with this theory is, china rely on our markets just as much as we do theirs. As their market go's up so does ours. They have just been working on deals with more countries as those start to be countries who are starting to get really into consumerism.

Id be more worried about india taking lead then china, they just keep leaping in yearly gdp. China plays with the worth of their currency so often id be more concerned a worldly collapse again because they have massive internal debt which is just as bad as owing money to someone else.

Too many traffic jams caused by elephants and bulls fighting in the street.

Actually now the US have a very bad foreign diplomacy. What is happening now? China is going to make deals with the eastern part of the EU. But few weeks before they had meetings also with Angela Merkel. So if China make a stronger realtionship with the EU u will see what will happen. Right now if there is a conflict than the europian countries work together with US but now the EU is also opening slowly to Russia and China and also to Iran.

I agree his diplomacy skills are extremely poor, pulling of the Paris climate change accords and Iran deal, imposing tariffs on china, under his administration. America's own allies have lost faith in the country, just recently he wanted Russia back in the G7 this just gave me a good assurance that he is actually Putin's own spy, not that I really care anyways.

Honestly most of my friends we tought that he will be a good president. We tought he is a sucessfull businessman the politic is same. But now what i see is just a clown trying to get more atention. But i am really curious when US will have a leader who dont wanna make trouble or war.

Bussiness men and politicians are vastly different professions with different skill sets, Trump doesn't know how diplomacy works nor doesn't know how to treat it's allies. In the Business world it's either black or white and there are very limited oppurtunities for compromise in politics it's a grey area where you have to compromise with a lot of things.

Yes i agree. As i told we just tought that he will be good. By the way i am following the news every day so i am updated. Not he is the only one bad leader😁

trump will probably ruin America, think he already has a little.

which part? My portfolio has record growth. I am surprised every month when I read my statement, "Thank the Trump!" I exclaim.

America's economy has experienced good improvement

So renegotiating so the US is in a better economic position and more competitive will cause our economy to be overtakes?

Awesome .. Post beautiful
Well done .. good for you the place looks great
Thanks for sharing your experience‏..

Maybe Trump and his kids can keep us on top. lol

Especially his son 😃

I would probably pick Ivanka over his son but either one should do fine.

good friend is a good analysis that you did sometimes we have to look at several points of view. If we are not going a little years ago, china was a country invaded by many countries was so attacked that they left him in poverty and invaded by many companies foreign, they used the Chinese as cheap labor so the product that make it in the United States had a cost for example of 10 dollars to produce in China the same foreign company with Chinese labor had a cost of 3 dollars, this happened with many companies, until one day a Chinese president called monsetu told the Chinese to copy the technology of these companies that he was setting up a barn and putting the money and stealing the projects of foreign companies were going to be the leaders of these new companies producing the same product but cheaper so they managed to break the companies to which they had copied their product and take it out of their country, this they did with each of foreign companies that were within your country.

they copied the technology of the other countries and began to produce it in masses but with a detail they did not have quality control, that's why their products were so cheap, that they were sold in all the countries of the world, they cared about the quantity and not the quality, that's how they came to have money again. From that moment on, they dedicated themselves to improving the products and they took away that bad reputation they had that Chinese products did not work.
If in any country the work schedule was of 6 and 8 hours a day the Chinese work from Sunday to Sunday from 7 in the morning to 9 at night, they take care of their work because behind each Chinese there are 10 thousand Chinese people waiting for him.
I think it has been their tireless work, and the improvement of the technology they had copied that has made them such a developed country, and the country and its people are dedicated to improving it, they had in their minds a goal, each one of them they with whom I spoke said that their revenge towards the United States was not going to be a war of bullets but of technological development that someday they were going to be better than them, that was my experience when I lived two years in that country. I hope you liked it. history

I heard a story about a architect that was contracted to build a building in China and they actually completed the copy they made from the stolen plans before the original building!

Did you rate the article 2248/5000 or something?

In my mind, there is absolutely no doubt that China will overtake USA, and become the biggest and maybe even the most powerful economy in the world!
The fact alone, that they have a population that is almost 4 times bigger than USA.
Looking at the Chinese schools, and education system, they are probably the ones who have come the furthest, when you look at the skills that the children are learning at an early age..It scares me to see the education system in my own country, where the main focus is to get everyone through, not really taking care of the children who have special skills...making sure that the country is provided with a workforce with special skills...Another worrying focus is the teachers...their main concern is their salary..basically not caring about creating the best learn space for the children...That is where China i way ahead of us!
In the western economies, the workforces are paid too high salaries to compete in the long run...the chinese are able to hire three for the price of one..and they can sell the manufactured goods at a much lower price..
So in the long run, the western economies are being left behind...sad but true!

I agree with what you say but as one who understands the different classes in economics.....why (if i was apart of the working poor) would i want to work for a lower wage? Do you think the lower wages are a result Chinese citizens wanting to be more competitive in the global economic market place or because democracy and freedom aren't as important to the Chinese status quo?

Also i find it ironic that China literally has laws preventing the number of children a family can have whereas in America we just use subtle indirect methods of population control like gun violence, drugs and disease.....

No, they don't choose the low wages voluntarily..it's just how their economy works..Things are generally cheaper, people don't need that much money to live..that keeps the wages down...so democrazy..or the lack thereof..
Well, they have to have the one-child policy..otherwise there will be no work, not enough food produced in China...Then they would have to import more...putting an upwards pressure on prices...making them less competative..
They really got it figured out..

Absolutly correct. And also what i experienced that even in the poor wester europian countries the education is better. Why? Because they are poor. So if they have a good education they can work abroad.

No, because education is their main concern..Not to get better working hours, union trouble or higher salaries..
We, in the west are far too spoiled!

The fact alone, that they have a population that is almost 4 times bigger than USA.

in roughly the same amount of land, is that an advantage?

Well, it means that they have to be far more efficient with everything they do...That effectivenes makes them very competative..
Land size means nothing in this matter, but of course ressources could be a problem..

There is a population of untreated mentally ill people in China as large as the American population. Of course their lack of resources is a disadvantage. China has to import human manure for their crops already.

Didn't hear that one with the manure🙂 The Chinese workforce is enormous...people working from the age of 5 till 75 or more..With all the child labour, it's no wonder they can keep the salaries down..

They import it by the shipload from Hong Kong. They have to also import a lot of their energy and raw materials, they are resource poor. I was assembling grills one time and occasionally we would find tiny footprints in the dust on the sheet metal.

Wow 2020 that is pretty soon! On the other hand, there are almost 4x the amount of people living there. In order for the GDP per capita to surpass a lot would need to happen.

A young Justin Bieber taught me to Never say Never so I'll say not in my lifetime!

Short answer: yes

Long answer: The US is a bloated oligarchy run by corporations with too many inefficiencies to name. We have forsaken infrastructure and education to maintain our image of world police. These missteps are slowly but surely catching up with us as shown by our diminishing standing in the world economy.

I could say that right now, United States began its policy of not allowing inmigrants wich can bill the economy in less than ten years. Building the wall will cost a huge debt which will make US entry in the bankruptcy process, even worse than the big depression happened in 1929.

    China is running to be the superpowered country in the world. Nobody knows the political conflicts happening in Chinese territory -Taipei and Tibet is one of the examples- the over population and excessive consumptions are decreasing the life quality of chinese people. If we look at India, the economy has growth faster as the population in the last twenty years. So, it's probably that even China will be overtaken by India in 25 years from now...

    We don't have a policy of not allowing immigrants, we welcome immigrants. Building the wall won't cost Americans a dime in the long run, Mexico will be paying for it, but even if they weren't we can afford it. It will save us money in the long run.
    Does China allow illegal aliens to flow freely into their country, why or why not?

    No. Mexico won't -and they are not forced to- pay for a wall made by the U.S Government against mexican and centro-american inmigrants. Trump speech on inmigration is a huge bullshit to justify racism and protect racist people from trials

      The fact about mexican pay for something who damage them is try to avoiding -very stupidly- the unstoppable bankcruptcy of United States. It is just as i build a house that you will pay for and you won't be able to live. Incomprehensible...

      A wall would be good for Mexico and Mexicans as well, the Mexican state also has an interest in securing its borders, legal immigrants are more than welcome, come on in the front door, illegal drug smuggling and jumping the fence is not good for anyone involved, why do you want it to be easy for people to be smuggled here to be treated as second class citizens at best and slaves at worst?
      It's more like "good fences make good neighbors" I am sure we will offer the Mexicans generous financing terms on our border wall. Maybe in exchange we can help them beef up the southern border they are having problems with.

      Why is it that those who play the race card insist on calling illegal aliens "immigrants"? Are all Mexican and centro-american immigrants illegals?

      I like how you choose not to answer my question.

      Would be good? LOL! Get out the bubble man!

      There is a world in chaos. Trump is ruining the world by making your country great as he see. So greed. For Trump, people from holes of dirt like African countries, Mexico and Venezuela are illegal aliens, and people from nice land like Sweden, Denmark and Norway are inmigrant. And i repeat, Mexico won't pay a dime for that fucking wall. Get it!!!!

      Nope for Trump legal immigrants with skills are good, no matter where they come from, and illiterate criminal illegal alien gang members are bad. You seem to be in the MSM bubble and actually believing their editorials and fake news. We have a lot of ways to make Mexico pay, they are very dependent on us. If we want them to pay they will pay, no matter what some impotent Mexican president says. Trump wants to expand legal immigration and has stated on many times his desire for congress to reform immigration laws and protect the so called dreamers. You should ask yourself where you are getting your information about Trump and why those people want to feel the way you do and whose interests that serves.

      Maybe they surpass the US in GDP, but does that really matter? First, there's serious questions about the validity of Chinese statistical values with many provinces overstating their values to appease leadership.


      Second, China has a population that is over four times that of the US. If the GDP's were equal, that still only leaves the average Chinese individual at 1/4 the level of the average US citizen in terms of GDP per capita. If the Chinese are able to increase their productivity even modestly, they would be on par with US productivity in aggregate, but still much poorer as individuals.

      Third, GDP is such a poor measure of productivity and it is unfortunate that it has become the standard, national economic measure. It has many troubles, perhaps the most significant being that government expenditures are counted equally with consumption and investment.


      1 - Watch documentary "The China Hustle" on Netflix;

      2 - We need to analyze what are the fundamentals that make an economy grow rapidly.
      Brazil has already been considered by some scholars and the Economist magazine as a possible world economic power in 2009.
      Between 2013 and 2015 it was revealed that it was all a big hoax.
      Economic policy and the Brazilian strategy to be considered a potential power was to create an artificial environment of well-being where the state provided everything from homes, furniture and cars to citizens.

      Another issue is that the state artificially created the need for infrastructure works to stimulate the economy. This is reminiscent of China's ghost towns.

      Many Brazilians who understood the basics of a market economy knew that everything would collapse. As it happened and today we live here in a country in serious economic problems.

      Okay ... China has done something much more structured than Brazil. China is stimulating its economy much more aggressively and this is bringing a look of economic health. God save us from it all collapsing in a short time. In today's globalized world, it would not be good for that to happen.

      Although the Communist Party is the commander in China, they do not take communist ideology seriously, they are much more capitalist than other countries, including countries like Brazil.

      Thanks for the comment. I agree with you about Chinese communist party

      I thought they already did... tipuvote!

      I love China & Company...

      I don’t think it is a matter, it is a matter of when. Such is that China has such a big population, much like India as well. It is hard to know when, because the human project is on a long time line and we are just a point on that continuum. It may not happen in our life time, but I suspect it will happen in my kids’ lifetime. Free market works Up to some point and then.


      in africa it is said that the chick that will grow into a cock can be spotted immediately it hatches. i believe that its possible for china to overtake the US in the near future if they maintain their steady growth.

      Probably will given enough time

      We have chosen your post to be part of our top ten post of the day. This is left to be seen.

      China no doubt has progressed rapidly but I will bet more on India in the coming decade as they will develop a lot in the technology from especially in the field of Artificial intelligence, internet penetration and Space research to name few. It will become the world leading supplier of cheap medicine, yoga as well as Yoga. It has a huge talent pool in the filed of IT and exploring more in the filed of data science so all these factors make India a better choice

      hello there!!!
      interesting and great information what are you sharing.

      i think life it is a fortune wheel, today you are in the highest side but tomorrow you will be in the deepest side.

      also when you have your goals well established this are the results of success. but most important do you need to work together.

      good luck!!!
      have a great day!!!

      I find it strange that China is still referred to as Communist. They are nothing of the sort. They may have vestiges of it. They like the U.S. are a hybrid of many things.

      It is also hard for me to understand what kind of communism it is 😃

      It isn't. It isn't communism at all. It has its fair share of capitalism, and it has essentially a dictatorial oligarchy.

      CINO = Communism in Name Only. :)

      I do believe China grew so rapidly economically as it benefited from the American economy. Much of American production was moved to China to avoid paying taxes in America by larger corporations. So when not if the American system collapses China will too at first, then maybe it will become the top dog on the block.

      So many interesting points made in the comments section of this post. Worth the read. With the way things are headed, I think it’s just a matter of when China will overtake the US.

      China has a many advantage over USA which can make them over take USA easily but also a big issue which can drag them back too.. The issue is their confrontation attitude with most of countries, and once the small countries get opportunity they will definitely favor the odds which can hurt china bad...

      Example, South China sea, Doklam issue and many other with neighbors countries.. Instead if china make a healthy ties and work constructively with Asian countries then they whole can take over west, whose govt. had dominated the whole world based the cunning trick of initiating wars and selling their weapons.

      China will take over.

      They have a larger middle class that is willing to spend like crazy because of the extra money they have.

      Domestic car companies like Buick, Cheverolet, etc has already shifted their targeted sales there and they are making a killing.

      I recently visited China and I realize the potential of selling any product as long as it is marketed correctly.

      I dont think so, just look at the ZTE "Deal".
      This chinese phone company just paid multiple billion dollars to get software and market acces from the US, without this deal they would need to close the company.

      China still heavily depends on western technology to keep going. Also there new High Voltage DC-Grid is planned and controlled by Siemens from Germany. There are many other examples like this, China needs to open more for foreign investors.

      I think they will overtake surely . Because they have economy, they have brain and they are hardworking seriously

      They are hardworking. It is because of the rice agriculture which shaped their work culture

      Haha ! very funny . Seriously I like them

      China has been prospering through the abuse of their people. Even if they momentarily take over I do not see a lasting overtake of our economy.

      Well I think that in the coming years. China will surely take over USA. The way it's industries are producing goods for the whole world and the way it is gaining support of many countries through good and calm government. It is inevitable that it's gonna happen soon.

      Cantik bangetttt.....

      Wow big bos amazing

      What about Europe ? Currently the first economic market in the world (before brexit)

      China is a slept giant.

      It's going to be Asian century, with China leading the way.
      Their long game trumps Trump's inability to focus and study the subject matter. America and the West need to wake up and smell the shit they're stuck in.

      China has huge amount of investors and money..The growth of china is much higher than US.The number of china employment is rising day by day but the oppostite things are seen at US.China spending Billion billion dollar in Their Security.china will overtake us in 2025

      They'll definitely surpass us in the cryptocurrency & cashless society aspect they already have and theyll only continue to create more space the dollar has and will keep losing its value and before long we as Americans will have to find an answer from a power aspect I still feel we have plenty of control over our territories and the globe pretty much but only time can tell who knows what the future holds

      No, China has 5 times as many people in roughly the same amount of space as America, that's a disadvantage.

      China will never surpass US to the fact that they only copying everything from that country. Arms, clothing and everything.

      Yes i find China will definitely overtake America. What a fantastic read..

      China could certainly be the worlds leader in economic development, especially with the one belt one road project.

      China will be a new superpower and left behind the United States

      Economically in terms of dollar size, China might surpass the US. In fact, it's quite surprising that they have not already, which speaks volumes in and of itself. For the most part, China is never going to dominate economically or politically. Currently, their economic development agencies are retarded, loaning money to ‘friends of the party’ instead of companies that are strong and companies with the potential of becoming strong. Currently, over 50% of government loans are not paid back and this has been going on for decades.

      Additionally, China has seen double-digit growth for 30 years until very recently (last couple years). Any western country that experiences double-digit growth would be enjoying good times with an economy that is making all their citizens rich. Life would be totally awesome, and that is if a western country only experienced double-digit growth for just one year. But, China needs this double-digit development to just keep its head above the water. It needs to keep the containers filled and going to western countries to keep their factories running. To do this, it needs to keep their prices down or western countries would not accept their inferior products. They extent credit to these countries as well, again they need to do this, or western countries will not buy their products and their factories would not operate at current levels.

      Most deals are consignment type deals with the west and China is always waiting on payment to pay its backers in Europe. Eventually, the Chinese people will not be able to absorb these transactions until payment, European backers will get frustrated and call in their makers. Eventually, the Chinese government will not be able to contain the people and civil strife will become the dominant focus of the government. To contain order, China will close its borders once again as it did in centuries past and to save face the government will blame the foreigners instead of recognizing mismanagement and accept blame.

      The third world war (WWIII) will be between Japan and the US around 2050, with Japan once again attacking the US (in space) in a bid to obtain more resources. Japan will need to do business with the Eastern Chinese seaboard, who will be taxed heavily to support the rest of China, further adding to the strife in China. One can expect this turmoil to occur in China prior to 2030. Prior to this, one should expect the collapse of Russia totally, which there have been signs of for the past 5 years.

      I like it very much, keep it that way. I recommend it
      Interestingly presented I will be looking more often

      I think Vanga already predicted this? right? Since their country is large, they have a lot of customers that make economy developed fast . And if they are making a super power weapon, it is really hard to know since they dont use facebook.

      Will DT be the final nail in its coffin?America USed to be a leader of intelligence and prosperity, but now it's more like a leader of wrong spellings and grammar.

      But at the same time, China is still facing a lot of challenges... Like its strict censorship about the Internet and blockchain things.

      Does this mean physical war as the US cartel try to stay number one.

      It is about political and economic dominance, not about war.

      Actually the rise of China may actually lead to a troubling world order. Over the last 60 years the world has benefited from American hegemony as having one country lead the world has resulted in relative peace. It is in times where multiple countries vie for leadership that the world usually enters a period of instability that in the past has led to conflict and sometimes devastating war. World War 1 and 2 were the result of Germany challenging British supremacy and before that England and France fought for centuries over global supremacy resulting in many wars. I fear China's rise will lead to confrontation as its in human nature to fight in such situations. It would be better for the world if China bows to American supremacy for the rest of history and let the world live in peace instead of provoking a conflict that could destroy all of mankind.

      This is only a matter of time

      China and America have avoided a trade war, for now at least. By agreeing to increase purchases of U.S. goods in a bid to shrink its surplus with America, President Xi Jinping has avoided a growth-sapping trade spat. What’s more, it appears that his plan to dominate industries of the future remains unchecked. Meantime, China’s pledges to open up such long-fettered industries as finance and to reduce barriers for autos and other sectors is set to lure even closer engagement with corporate America, deepening the “Chimerica” union. Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the relationship between the world’s two economic giants:

      hopefully love can overtake the United States, as a form of economic progress in other countries

      China is heading enormous problems in its social systems, its environment, the next years/decades - the costs for such nearly un-estimable.
      And also will not reach the intensity of new developments of nations like Germany or the US within the next decades. Most technology is simply imported and copied !!!!
      Many academics and Western firms I know personally, are again leaving that country. Too unsafe political circumstances.

      So, what ? ;-)

      I don't have first hand experience about China 🤠My information is from media

      To me China is already ahead of US only politics play role. My opinion @aasanka check Qoura

      No matter how fast china may grow they can never ahead of usa with what ive known about USA their back up is much more stronger compare to china.

      good overview of your research work. I also do many research on this topic. I totally agree with this matter. I have got many news from this. I appreciate your post. Carry on brother..pls give me vote to improve my post also..

      for sure it will, if it haven't happened already.

      Communism is cruel and will collapse

      Please no, China is a growing threat, not only for its neighbours but also for the world.

      China is definitely gonna win this one. They are more openminded than the states and have an advanced understanding of the value of information technology..

      I think the question should be "Will the china overtake the Philippines?"

      With regard to development, China exceed with a huge margin and agian there is Trump who has left no stone unturned to be called himself, Useless.

      Bdw, Checkout my blog as well:

      Up vote if you like it. Looking forward to hear more from you.

      India is also a country to watch on this subject.

      Even if it's far behind in some key area of developement, it has one of the youngest population, soon the biggest and it's really active in the innovation sector.

      Hmmmmm well researched, I think China will beat US come year 2020 based on the level at which China is going.....nice job!

      With information as interesting as not following your post good job

      good post friend

      China is growing faster and doing better due to the rigged system. The sociopaths in our government have sold out the US long ago. What we need is no government.

      what nice representation of idea and fact, yeah maybe China will be greater than the U.S someday.

      The way china has grown during the past 30 years, it will certainly take over United states. United states is collapsing with lightening speed. United states owes Trillions of Dollars to China and Arab countries

      china is really coming up real good.. i am just observing what happens next from this point on
