  •  we actually owe china less than you might think... (0+ / 0-)

    ...(more or less 7% of gdp now), but we are both so tied up in each other's economies that you are right on point when you suggest cooperation is better than contention.

    china hopes to create enough domestic consumption to breask some of that dependence; we'll see if they can work it out or not.

    •  the other issue is that the population is aging - (0+ / 0-)

      and they are faced with a crisis of caring for their soon to be old population.

      with the one child rule - and most being male, the family structure isn't there to support the elders like it was decades ago.

      (amazing the interesting news on cctv!)

      china is working to ensure everyone has food, housing and healthcare - damn - maybe they learned from our mistakes!
