Forest, what were you mumbling about?
LOL, TwChinese, I am not mumbling but sharing my unbiased opinion about the competitiveness
between Chinese's States or Provinces.
The one that you have been bashing us since day1, LOL.
Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau who else?
Having a bigger population doesn't mean it's more competitive. All those rhetorical stuff they put in your head or you put in your head is exactly why some Chinese never make progress... it's always a zero-sum game when they just sit around talking about what they are able to do (things like momentum, race.....) while nothing is actually happening. Remember in the 1960's when the whole country was claiming how we were going to surpass, or overtake Britain? But nobody knew what the slogan means, or overtake Britain in what? But still an empty slogan like that generated massive "momentum," for the ruling party at least. That's exactly what you remind me of. Modern China today needs more doers and less talkers...
Well, I do know every country have its own propaganda, and I know how to shield myself from it.
Though, I never heard of any promises made in the 60's to overtake the UK, but I would have laughed my
buns off. The economic momentum theory has been my own independent theory, if you have heard of it
then it might have a different meaning though I would be interested to know where it come from.
See, I don't believed that your sucess today is a product of what you did yesterday, but years ago, and
right now you are riding on your momentum that is build up from your remote past. And it go for
Taiwan, Hong Kong, ...., and China. Moreover, what you are doing in recent year the outcome will
be more accurate in 10-15 years from now. Hence, I don't think anyone should claim economic
success because we are not at the end of the race.
My view is that China can never grows as fast as Taiwan, Hong Kong, or Macau, and this is no
propaganda, if it did the word market will be saturated with all goods, such that new demand
for new goods will be droped sharply and cause recession worldwide. And that goes for India as
well. Right now I truly believe the CCP has done an outstanding job with whatever resources
that they have at their disposal.
The whole value of the competitiveness report is to give less developed Chinese cities a good reference as to how they might expand and improve economically and technologically. It can be extremely valuable for policy setting, only if they pay attention to the report and not get all rhetorical.
Well, I am not a rheotical person, but truth. That is why I did not hesitate to applause successfull
State as Taiwan, Hong Kong , and Macau. I believed you are thinking of westerners. We all know
that they are a master of rheotoric, but not me. LOL.
China's biggest advantage today is the country unique combination of a huge affordable labor force and a burgeoning middle-class with more and more disposable income. And because that unique combination is what draws investors of all sorts, the country will not prosper altogether. The rich will lead the poor... so the idea of "equality" and "sustainability" to all Chinese cities is simply rhetorical.
Well, the truth is the rich will continue to get richer and the poor will continue to get poorer. If you
study the standard of living today comparing with the standard of living 10-20 years ago, you will
find that people have to work harder today than years ago, dispite the illusion of being surrounded
by computers and hitech equipment. I don't have a good solution for this, but Chairman Moa had
tried his idea and it did not work well for everyone. Hence, we'll just have to take the best path
we can find. Hopefully, there will be some idea falling from the sky that will help reduce the
gap between rich and poor without damaging the economy.
God blesses all,
