China is very good at expanding. China is terrible at maintaining the places they've expanded to. Erecting new buildings doesn't mean much when said new buildings will never be maintained and left to rot.

Historically China does its best expansion by being conquered and assimilating the invaders. If it ever actually comes to war then in a few generation the US will be full of bugmen.

Pre-modern China had massive famines every decade, most of its history "China" was just a bunch of smaller states constantly fighting with each other, they have several extreme socio-economical differences, and they have ridiculously small relative arable land. As a culture/civilization/race China is resilient as fuck, but as an actual political entity the state of China is built on fragile fundamentals.

China can just as well collapse before the US does, they are not a magical hivemind playing on easy mode (even though they would like you to believe that they are).

-Massive gender imbalance
This isn't a sign of being fucked. Having more men than women is part of the reason why china is rising.

Also, any analysis that's ignoring gene-editing advances seems incomplete for its possibility to completely innovate human potential.

I think this MRE review by our buddy Steve says a lot more about China's TRUE military capacity than any longform Economist article. The whole country is a shell game. Everything is fake and designed to impress. Loads of manpower, armed with guns from the 70's. Vast and entirely empty cities.

Here's the 'sleeping giant' that is China, summed up in one picture.

Wikistrat (if no one has ever heard of it, its a group of people involved in crowdsourced speculation of how international relations will play out in the future) had a YouTube video on this and they basically spelled out the different directions that the Chinese economy will head. Rather than sum it up, I'll just link it because their take is actually kinda interesting.


Its been a while and things have changed a bit since then, so itd be interesting to compare their results from then to where we are and where things seem to be headed now.

China fucks with their currency too much.
Also bad age demographics,
Also bad Gender demographics for younger generations,
Also their entire economy is based on elaborate real estate scams they will eventually have to pay for
Also they have a massive pension debt bomb coming up for the olds [unless they just say fuck the olds]

Makes me wonder who American companies will whore out to next once the Chinese bubble bursts. India?

Chingchongtopia may become the evil of the 21st century, what Germany and Russia were in the 20th century.

I still hope the US will completely take over the world, because the alternatives are all retarded. China is evil, Russia is evil too, the EU is anti-freedom and India is backwards. Brazil as global hegemon would be cool though.

China is a piece of shit and we need to just get it over with and burn it to the ground.

Their economic growth looked impressive on paper. Undergrad-level economics explains it away, though. Because there's diminishing returns to capital but non-diminishing costs, the acquisition of new capital makes future acquisition less efficient, so unless you increase your savings rate, your capital growth (and thus economic growth) is just going to slow down until you converge to some level. (Solow growth theory)

The chinks didn't have much capital to start with, and what's more, their own government is admitting that their performance is slowing down and probably won't pick up. They haven't even gotten close to the West and they're already starting to slow down.

Throw in their chink incompetence (they're the only people who could have a billion citizens yet repeatedly lose to horse niggers) and there's little reason to fear them. Absolute wastes.

Hehe, this thread aged beautifully.

I am also enjoying the delicious irony of pre-2020 documentaries about muh superpower China.

The magic of America is that Americans invest in America and sell to Americans. Americans rarely make products for export.

China makes everything for export and most Chinese people invest in other countries... like America.

Weird, why are you guys so confident that China's reign as a superpower may be coming to an end?
Their rise was wholly dependent on trade fuckery with the West (mostly the US). Now with the CCP virus and China acting like its usual self (think malignant narcissism, except an entire country), everyone and their brother is seriously reconsidering their relationship with China. Even African nations are telling China to go fuck themselves.
