Soon they will export a flood of cars here, now they will threaten the Swiss Watch industry! Much like the new wave of cars they are producing, they will perfect this technology as well and be a force in the world to compete, etc.

"But China is an industrial force to be reckoned with, and has probably by now the largest manufacturing output of any country. So when I started seeing some really interesting looking mechanical watch designs appearing on ebay at amazingly low prices, even though some of these listings spun all sorts of nonsense about eminent Swiss watchmakers of the 18th century, and came across as more Swiss than Fondue, it seemed pretty likely they were Chinese."

LOL. OK, but they're determined. :bonkers:

Maybe if we bought them all new bicycles, they wouldn't get too interested in cars. :shhh: Nah, they've had a taste now and they are hooked!

The news of China's economy comes from China. Many economists don't trust Chinas numbers.

What this socialist police state chooses to spend their newly found wealth on, will be the most important factor in determining how powerful and long lasting China is as an economic force.

Any war with Taiwan or Japan, will make their economic growth very short lived.

"What this socialist police state chooses to spend their newly found wealth on, will be the most important factor in determining how powerful and long lasting China is as an economic force." In the same vein,I am afraid how they decide to treat their own citizens will determine their destiney, and ours, in the new world order.
