    That's kind of depressing, actually, but not out of the question. In any case, I'm convinced these cultural attitudes towards various temperaments -- or occupations -- are indeed formed historically... but I don't know how.

    Based on Purchasing Power Parity, PRC's economy may have been biiger (or on par) with the US economy in 2010. Maggern already posted the news article in the economics thread, so here's the link to the economic explanation that the news article was based on:

    China-Tajikistan Settle Border Dispute

    I didn't want to start a new thread:

    One percent of Tajikistan ceded to China: official

    Seems like China and Tajikistan settled their almost 150 year border dispute. China claimed 28,000 squared kilometres, but got 1000 squared kilometres. The Tajik government claim it as a victory, and I'm sure China claims it as a victory too. A mutually beneficial situation.

    I guess that's one less border dispute (probably the easiest one) settled.

    Well, the Huffington Post has called China a superpower:

    In deed, "core views", but not when it concerns citizens in countries of dependent dictators like, until a few days ago, Ben Ali in Tunisia, and still Mubarak in Egypt? What about Karzai in Afghanistan, voted into office in Bonn and remaining in office with the help of fraudulent elections? What about the rights of the Arab citizens of Israel, of the Palestinians in the Occupied Territories and in the those in the camps around Israel?

    I agree, but what i found funny is that while China speaks of it's "core" interests (Taiwan and Tibet), basically saying it will not negotiate on these, the Americans want to convert even their supposed "views" into something comparable. I hope this is only for the press.

    Well, here's the news coverage on PRC being the 2nd largest economy on earth for 2010:

    Japan overtaken by China as No. 2 economy - Channel NewsAsia

    Still waiting on the census data from PRC that was supposed to have been released in Dec 2010. Wonder what's causing the hold up on the authorities in PRC releasing an official statement on the size of their population....

    The 2010 population census puts PRC's population at 1.37 billion. This is a growth of 0.57 percent (73.9 million) over the 2000 census population.

    China's mainland population grows to 1.3397 billion in 2010: census data

    The increasing disparity in the male-female ratios has been described by demographers as a ticking time bomb as this will mean that in time to come, males will outnumber females by the millions.

    China is not a super power, period.
