China has been a developing nation since 1820. That has not changed. The US has been a developed country since around 1750 at least, that has not changed. Britain has been a developed countr ...
Developing status can be changed while time goes on... For example, Azerbaijan was developed country until Karabakh war. Now Azerbaijan is developing country. Note that there are sub stages of major stages. Developing countries can be almost developed,upper developing,lower developing. World counts now both China&Azerbaijan upper developing. Iran&Turkey is almost developed.
It is strange to think a country with 5000 years of history has only been developing for less than 200 years (and that is about when the opium hit). Good to know though. Also, the US was developed before the industrial revolution? What do you mean by developed? People think independently?
I am lost with your point. To go to the OP, China has realized Marx was a bed wetter!
