Fifteen years ago my wife and baby were in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It had been known as the most British city in North American and in less than ten years had become one fourth Chinese. Hong Kong business men were buying homes there for their families just in case, not knowing what effect the mainland take over was going to have. Well now we know. You are permitted to make money and prosper all over China as long as you don't challenge the government and the new rich on the mainland are investing in America. It is a safe haven. Two years ago, I attended outsourcing meetings
in China and it nearly blew my mind. I had never heard of Chongqing until then but it looked prosperous and like a mega Pittsburg. You know those A&Is, A&Ts, A&Ms, technical schools, and engineering schools? Well they have their equivalents. Everywhere I spoke I said we developed these schools in order to manage out natural resources. We have the traditional European style universities also but Europe does not have these. I told them that they reminded me of America in the 1960's and that resonated big time with them. It was the "we can do it attitude" as opposed to what ever it is that we have now. So Congress ya'al want to continue to play? Get some baby nipples and suck on them.
