China is becoming the industrial capital of the world - What will happen to the western economies...?
...I say western regarding particulalry the UK & America which have been deeply affected by the Far East. Firstly it was Taiwan, Japan, Singapore & South Korea but recently it is more predominantly affected by China (which is just beginning) I cannot speak for France & Germany because generally the UK media coverage is not a prevalent or in depth as it is of the US. I suspect that other english speaking nations are affected - Canada & Australia. Unemployment has been steadily rising with declining industry and there won't be a reversal of industry in the UK & America... What is the solution? What will young people do now? What does the West have that the East & other parts of the world don't have? Education? I.T? What????? This article made me ask this question (but I have been thinking about this matter for some time - as I am sure many other people have to) See article here (you may have to copy/paste into browser address bar if link does not work): http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programmes/from_our_own_correspondent/9368519.stm If anyone can shed light on this matter it will be much appreciated - thanks in advance

China could be the answer, not the country, just the teacups, or similar objects, which could function as alternative currency. works every time.

China is NOT becoming the central of this world, its economy is not stable, full of bubbles and is on the break. Think of Japan in the 80s and you will understand.
