Reader comment on item: [Symposium:] Why Does the World Hate America?

Submitted by John (United States), Dec 13, 2005 at 12:32

China and India are happy we're preoccupied with being the world police and while they're churning out engineers and scientists by the thousands. I saw an interview by a panel of economist and CEO that if nothing changes right now China will be the worlds biggest economy in 20 years and India will be the second biggest economy in 30 years, the United States will be third and Japan fourth.

They reason is that China has 2-3 billion people, India has over 1 billion people that is a huge market while the US has only about 250 million people you do the math. The only advantage the US has is technolgy but all manufacturing is moving to CHINA and India. US companies are investing billions in India because thats where the technology talent is now and it's cheap. Almost everything you buy now are made in China. Also there's a big push here by the Evangelical Christians to change science taught in school to a religious one, boy China and India probaly love this, we can graduate more preachers.
