Here are some facts that I think everyone should know
Is China the world’s new super power?
China has the largest population in the world,
1,331,460,000 people, that is four times as many people as in the USA
China is the world’s biggest exporter in the world and the second biggest importer after the USA
China has world’s second largest GDP of 5,745,133 US dollars
That is 15 % of the world’s GDP
And yet, China has only been capitalist for 30 years compared to the USA which has been a modern industrial state for 70 years.
And yet China is no democracy
They have the 4th largest nuclear stockpile
They have one of the most controversial human rights record for a modern government
I am not suggesting that China will take over the world, but do we want to be dependant on this country?
