China is headed for a big economic crash which may make them more volatile as far as the territorial disputes are concerned, there is a distinct possibility that there will be a regional war in the far east pretty soon. Life for us will be about the same although a lot of China's money will be in the US housing market. China is nearly sinking under the weight of their own army, but they are a cyber threat to be sure.

They are a worldwide leader in manufacturing output...as of 2011 they are responsible for 19.9% vs. the U.S. at 19.4%. What is a huge advantage that they have to continue this growth are two things...1) they have a gigantic labor force (while American's worker's are statistically more productive...it's a sheer numbers game, and they've got them), 2) their labor is much cheaper. Also, another not so nice statistic...China owns more U.S. debt than U.S. citizens do.

...exactly...China doesn't fit the mold of a traditional economic superpower. Many of its residents live below what many of us would consider the poverty line and its vast countryside is still dominated by an agrarian economy....and yet, they are quickly on the path to gaining just as much, if not greater, significance as the U.S. in regard to global economic health.

If their growing middle class demands democracy, maybe better.

Best Answer

They already are one of three superpowers. They have Veto powers, and they like to keep things on a delicate little balance in the Pacfic...so, it's a little late for 'what if' situations, the country is as much an importance to World Economics as they are a danger to Regional Security.<br />

I'm on the fence too...it's interesting to see how consumerism has influenced them within the past 10 years. Its economy recently passed Japan’s as the second-biggest in the world.

Best Answer

China has been recognized as a Supper power for at least a couple of decades. In the past ten years or so, as China has opened it self and it's people to a free market, has become a SUPER POLLUTER. That is not to say they haven't been polluting before this, more so it is the massive amounts of their industrialization that has taken place that is wreaking havoc on their breathable air in the cities.....bc
