  1. I am totally wowed by this article. I had no idea about any of these companies never mind how extraordinarily well they are doing in the world markets.This has opened my eyes to how well china is doing in the world markets. It doesn’t bode well for us does it? It looks like we will be continuing to not fair well as time goes on. This article is written well and I must say is pretty scary to think where the U.S. is heading.

    1. Hi Patrick, thanks for your comment. And thanks for the compliment, I’m glad you liked the article.

      Yeah, it is a little scary… But I guess the shoe is on the other foot now after so many years of Western economic domination.

      China has been pretty secretive for so long that they are not really used to making a big noise now. So a lot of this has been happening quietly for decades, without too many people paying much attention.

      The thing about history is that it all goes around in cycles, and there is always a new top dog in time.

      Iraq was one of the most influential and powerful countries in the world, and look at them now?

      The British had the largest empire the world has ever know, but the balloon burst on that one.

      The US has had a pretty good run for a young country, but now it is slipping.

      China has had a pretty bad run for a while, but now they are climbing.

      Australia… We’re just stuck in the middle, firing up the barbecue, cracking a beer, and watching to see what happens next.

      The wheel keeps turning…
