China Rising

“Get ready for China’s century”, today’s Global Mail focuses on China. It is a thorough report – economic booming, culture changing, low wages, human rights.

The outsiders are astonished by a modern China, plus the unique culture. The investors see the huge market. Many of the overseas Chinese go back to China, seeking for “a better life”. Some of my western friends told me their stunning experiences in China. They are curious to see the giant has its own rhythms of operating. I smile. Having the most ancient culture in the history, and the largest population in the world, of course Chinese have enough talent and wisdom to run the country and find a best way for the people. But China has too many problems. Many problems the outsiders would not know, such as the destroy of environments, the pressure of surviving for the low class people, the tense of energy shortage and nature resource shortage, the weakness in science and technology, and all kinds of conflicts in the society suppressed by the monopoly communism party. Which one comes first? A stable point or a blast point?


  • At least from the outside, I do not see how China is weak in science and technology. I'm sure rural China is quite backward, but the big city in China appears to be on par with us as far as science and technology.
