When China Rules the World. by tucsonmike on 10 April 2010 8:52pm
 
Not sure what Mr. P would think of this. It is a book by British think tank member Martin Jacques. The premise is that China will be the dominant country in the world.

I don't doubt it for a second. Have heard this for decades now. We will be the third world countries as Asia creeps through our back door (which they've been doing for a good 30 years or more.)

Although most Chinese still live in poverty. Go there and have a look.

In America,Los Angeles County has 400,000 Chinese Americans.
California has the highest contingent of Chinese population across the country.
San Francisco is 20% Chinese; Cupertino 24% Taiwanese; and Monterey Park has a 42% mainland Chinese population.
On the other hand,Chinese populations in Texas are considerably smaller,with Sugar Land having the highest of all at 10%.

Wikipedia has a full list of all the Chinese population percentages in America at:

I don't doubt it ev.
When Britain was at it's richest, around 70% of the wealth was owned by 1% of the population.
There are still grand Victorian mansions in this town, that once overlooked one of the most densely populated areas ( in terms of people crammed into tiny hovels ) in the world at that time.
