Re: Yes, but....

If everything is made in China, where will the wages of
the consumers in the rest of the world come from to buy the Chinese made

Can an economy based solely on the 'service sector' survive?

Or should a country sell it's natural resources to the highest bidder until they
are totally depleted? And then what?

Protectionist tactics to insure the stability of vital national resources and
a sustainable level of industrial capacity should not be ignored lest
we find ourselves vassal states.

Which should we be more concerned about, raising the standards of living

of the developing world or making sure we don't 'give away the store' and find ourselves impoverished by debt (sound familiar)?

China and India will do to the US and Europe exactly what the US did to
England and Europe over the past 150 years: out-sell them, out-buy them
and out-produce them. It remains to be seen whether the result will
be the largest environmental catastrophe in industrial history.

People seem to forget the a few thousand years ago, China and India

were on the cutting edge. Civilzation seems to move from East to West -- inexhorably.
Perhaps in 3011, Western Civilization will be back in the Dark Ages and
Chindian will be the lingua franca.
