""Most people would say yes but workers all around the world are underpaid , real wages of western workers halved in
last three decade. Purchasing ability of western worker is going downhill and job security became thing of past.
Problem of workers wages is global i would say.
And something have to be done about it sooner or later .........this is not sustainable in long run.""

Well said. {:soso_e181:}

As soon as the fat cats feel they can find cheaper labor somewhere else they go there not caring one bit what they
leave in their wake. It isn't sustainable. About the only place left with the numbers of wage slaved they need is Africa.
China will not be affected nearly as much by the fat cats leaving. They have state owned enterprises that are growing
bigger than the fat cat club's worth combined. China has a well educated workforce and a good and stable government
in place. The socialist government of China is more than up to the task of the fat cats leaving if wages get too high.
They will not be threatened into letting the jackals from the west feast upon state owned enterprises as the west so
badly wants. China is in the best position to continued and sustainable growth through the 21st century.
Let the fat cats leave and take their factories to Africa. Just don't let the door hit you on the butt on your way out. {:soso_e113:}
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

I have been to Africa, although not all of it, and I find names such as Eritrea, Sudan, Biafra, Rw ...

Indeed Sire!! The fact that you mentioned Biafra (circa 1966)or so and probably Abbysynia shows perhaps visit were years ago. I'm a young buck see, my visits are recent. Yes poverty and affluence are subjective element. China has serious poverty and so does Africa, South America and Eastern Europe.  These things are relative and we must be honest in calling it.

Whilst most people borrow money to buy houses etc in the West and China, I met folks that built £300,000 houses in Africa without a bank loan! There is a scholarly work on how land is actually not monetised like other places around the world.
South Koreans hold North Korea in absolute disdain. No affection whatsoever I can tell you.. For young South Koreans, and some older ones even up to 60 years old, North may as well be on the moon. I am due in Seoul in 3 months and I will indulge in my unofficial analysis again. And they are drilled to get into shelters once alarm sounds (much like Israelis, permanent state of war) and God willing, North Korea will be handed a beat down shortly

I am still unsure how knowing someone who talks of rich Africans equates to the population at large and demographics. I have therefore posted a world poverty map to show that China has actually done very well and especially cannot be compared to Africa.

This is exactly what I am impressing on you. In this instance, this world poverty map does not mean a lot. This is why travelling is recommended!! I know that you rae incredulous by the suggestion but hey, I know what I saw. The usual orthodoxy too is out of window as usually regurgitates untruth.

Africans, on a per capita basis, are richer than Indians and a full dozen African states have higher gross national income per capita than China. Today Africa has 14% of the world’s population and by 2050 one in every four people on the planet will be African. Development expert Vijay Majahan, author of Africa Rising, said the rapidly emerging African middle class could today number almost 300 million people - that’s out of a total population of one billion.

I took this off good link. Anyways, I am happy for Chinese to think they are having a better time of it than africans, I have no dog in it. Reality however is different.
