★ Read: China, Europe sail in same boat amongst world's economic tumults

Are China and Europe in the same boat?
1) Europe’s poorest country income per capita is 11.860,00 US dollar (rumania), Greece’s per capita income is 28.434,00 US dollars,
2) Europe has lot’s of rich countries: Netherlands (ppp. 35.000 US dollars) and Germany (income per capita 37.937,00 US dollars) and Sweden and Denmark and Norway!
3) The debt crisis is created by European banks and governments and has nothing to do with China, Brazil, India, Russia or South Africa!
4) Europe would NOT have lent money to China or any other developing country if it was China in a debt or economic crisis. Remember the Asian financial crisis in 1998, the westerners nor the IMF helped out nor lend money to Asian countries! Instead it was China which helped the Asian countries by keeping the Yuan rate stable!
5) Does the Chinese government really think that the European countries will ever pay back their loans to China...? They will certainly NOT1
6) The Brazilian government made it already clear to the West and especially Europe: Brazil will NOT lend money to Europe nor the European debt fund!
7) One must never forget that it’s about Chinese taxpayers money!! Chinese worked hard for it, it’s time the Europeans start working instead of lending and spending money.

I pledge to show I care about people and planet by taking part in the global discussion about population growth. I am joining the Population 7 Billion: It’s Time to Talk campaign. With world population set to surpass the 7 billion mark in October 2011, it’s time for a broader public discussion, especially about the importance of family planning and the role that educating girls and empowering women can play in creating a healthier and more sustainable world. As part of my pledge, I will start conversations with others and help spread the word. It’s time to talk. (More)
