China will have 5 times the financial, industrial and trading power of America by 2020.
China will have 5 times the political and military power of America by 2025.
China will soon ha ...
Why do you think China needs to compete and eventually out do the US? Is it not enough that China is China, a unique and wonderful place that has much to offer the world in many ways. You have to remember that the rest of the world, in sheer numbers far outweighs China so your assertion that the world will have to learn Chinese languages, Putonghua or Guangdonghua being the main languages, is so wrong and arrogant that it's astounding! I also highly doubt your timeline for China to out do the US! Inherent internal situations in China will, and societal pressures within China, not allow for that, in your timeline, I think. You also have to remember that eventually, every bubble burts and China is no different and although I don't wish for this, it's inevitable.
Another thought may be; what makes you think the rest of the world even cares about soft power, media domination, movies etc, especially Chinese ones. You can lead the horse to water but you can't make it drink....remember that!
