★ Read: American society at crossroads

1. Posted by Sam Teng at 2012-02-16 09:45:03
Whatever political ideology a country adopts, be it Capitalism or Socialism, etc., there are bound to be problems. The main point is whether the people is happy with what the government has done for the country and the people. For China, the government has done a great job in developing China to what it is today. China may not eradicate poverty totally and narrow the gap between the rich and the poor as much as it wants, the efforts are still on-going. With a population of 1.3 billion, it will be an arduous task and will take time; and time will tell. (More)

★ Read: Vice Premier calls to boost domestic demand
2. Posted by Liang1a at 2012-02-16 15:53:38
I like what the Vice Premier is saying. I’ve been saying for decades that China’s future economic development depends to some 95% on its own domestic development based on the urbanization of the farmers and relying on the advancement of indigenous technologies. Ultimately, China economy can only grow by making the farmers more productive in the urban areas in service and manufacturing sectors as they effectively produce all the goods and services for their own consumption. These services are such as education, medical services, banking, insurance, entertainment and culture, etc. As these services develop they will provide a richer and fuller life for the Chinese people. If the Chinese people are as productive as the Americans by using the same high tech tools and machines then they will be as productive as the Americans of a per capita basis. If China is to grow to its full potential then it must rely on the development of its own domestic economy based on the urbanization of the farmers.
I am pleased and heartened at the wisdom of the Vice Premier. I look forward to see enlightened policies implemented by him in the coming years. I’ve been severely critical of the Chinese government for mistakenly fixated on the exports which have put China into a dead end street where growth in the last several years had resulted in the dangerous formation of a housing bubble while domestic growth has dwindled to practically zero.

This is a good chance that Chinese should press harder to EU.(Remember: EU still impose hi-tech embargo to China and still do not grant the market economy to China and in many occasion use trade barrier to obstruct Chinese export to EU.)for fair and equal treatment of business, economy and social status. It is risk and benefits for China to step in to help EU financial crisis, but should not leave room for emptiness. China must gain something in return for these risks. (More)

Jeremy Lin is clear kid using his brain instead of brute force in doing battle. In that 4 second, under stress, he recollect his thought and do battle. His technical skill has yet match the best but mentally, he got it at young age of 23. He will continue to play with the best and will continues to improve. Best of luck and no doubt will hear more from this kid. (More)
