Firstly, I am a pure chinese ,27,male, graduate from a college ,preparing to get the MBA degree in a domestic university. I read the topic"will china take the NO.1 place of US?" , the first reflect was "ha ha ha,what a big joke! The China can't catch the US for the 200 years at least! From the economy,politics,education,democracy,military,environment protect etc ,there are huge distance to reach the level which US get now. Maybe you will refute my opinon with the GDP statistics which show the GDP of China surpass Japan for NO.2 just behind the US in 2010.But you should know the good data was building on the exploitation of cheap millions workers and plunder of nature resource immoderation. Actually,the average wage of workers is 2000 yuan(about 300$) a mouth.working 10 hours or longer a day.4 days for rest a mouth.Maybe you will say "Christ! It's break the labour law which working time is 8 hours a day. I want to sue the factory.HI,Man, here is China,not American,the corruption court won't accept your request anywhere.You quit? casual you.China lack anyting except human!1.5 billion Chinese now,you don't do the job, others scrambing for the position. Feed our mouth is most important ting not to struggle for human right. The US always criticize the Chinese goverment don't give human right to the people,I agree,Most chinese agree too,but we can do nothing,We have only one Communist party . you discontent for policy,you will in prison.For example,the 1989 tian'an men event.hundreds college student were killed.(of course,this never disclose in Chinese media,no editor dare to do so excepting he want to suicide). The other aspect, we should notice the worse environment we living. Peking and other northern cities will have sand rain in March and April.Falling from the sky is sand not water!how can you imagine that.Overexpliot of resourse and grazing made the tragedy happened. I am a chinese,should hope our country better,but the reality really make me down and most people down too.That's why the elite class immigrate to US,UK to find a better environment for living and working. Finally,my big's dream is to live in US for severval years,yeah, the American dream!
