    OK this may kind of go over your head, but I'll try anyway: as of 2010, China has the second largest nominal GDP in the world. Its annual average GDP growth in the last decade puts it squarely equivalent to all of the G7 countries' growth COMBINED. in the span of a decade between mid 90's and mid 2000's, China pulled some 270 MILLION of its citizens above the poverty line - which should be impressive considering that is equivalent to 2/3rd of all western european countries' population. It's trading economy is the second largest in the world (behind only the US). Sure, she has a long way to go, but that long way isn't generations away, may one or two at the max. And unless you're a teenager, that's not a long time. And for a wandering jew, you seem to have quite a rigid perspective (no pun)....What people like you fail to see (mostly the western self-obssessive, self-indulgent individuals), many people love their cultures and wouldn't want to part with them. That is especially true of Eastern cultures. Last time I checked the gates of London or New York weren't embracing immigration influx for the rural harworking chinses whom you so passionately talk about. That majority has guaranteed jobs in their China. Every single gadget in my house in Made in China and I'm sure that's true of yours. Last but not least, Polo was invented by PERSIANS and again, you're welcome!!! DUH
