    It is not a claim, but they call them "four new inventions" in a joking and humorous way because they have a significant impact on Chinese society today. Almost every reasonably educated Chinese know that Japan had high-speed rail several decades ago. Now, every year China adds new high-speed railway longer than Japan has built in entire history. More than 90% of world's mobile payments are done in China. The article is wrong that Apple introduced mobile pay first. Alipay and WeChat introduced mobile pay before Apple introduced Apple Pay in 2014 according to the Wall Street Journal. My wife worked for Apply Pay for sometime. Bike-sharing is not invented by China, but dockless bike sharing using wireless mobile and GPS technology is invented in China.

    Deeply disappointed, he issued a statement to the press in which he promised his men and the people of the Philippines, “I shall return.” The promise would become his mantra during the next two and a half years, and he would repeat it often in public appearances.

    I think that many surveillance cameras are better than many policemen patrolling with guns and tracker dogs.

    Most foreigners only see the convenience of mobile payment in China. But few of them understand the implication of mobile payment to the economy. Let me talk about it now.

    In the US, the fraud rate for credit card payment is about 1%. Therefore credit card companies charge merchants 1.5% to 3% of the transaction amount.
    In China now, the fraud rate for mobile payment is less than 0.1%. Alipay and Wechat charge merchants only 0.1% - 0.6% of the transaction amount.

    This difference might not be very significant to persons who are not familiar with the retail business. The profit margin for Walmart (the largest retailer chain in the US) is only between 3% and 4%.

    Capitalism is all about transactions. Reducing transaction cost makes the economy more efficient and growing.

    I think that other countries will sooner or later widely adopt mobile payment.

    Chengdu is not the Silicon Valley in China. It is a tech center in the western part of China. Its importance to tech in China is equivalent to Seatle or Austin in the US.

    McDonald's in China is more high-tech than McDonald's in the US.

    Decades of optimism about China’s rise have been discarded - How the West got China wrong

    TLDR

    In 2000, China first joined the WTO under Clinton's presidency. This lead many in the West to be optimistic about China's future: they would become the next great "capitalist tiger", and would follow a similar path to Japan & South Korea. Then there were also the pessimists, who insisted that China would remain a communist threat to the liberal world order.

    18 years later, the skeptics/pessimists appear to have been correct. China has continued to grow economically, while simultaneously expanding it's military strength and going against the 'Western order'.

    With IP theft, protectionist policies, and a complete disregard for civil liberties, China has not shown any sign that it plans to liberalize, and will only become a greater threat to the American sphere. The National Security Strategy America affirmed this sentiment in 2017, claiming that China “challenges American power, influence, and interests”.

    In hindsight, the blindly optimistic support for China's rise was a huge mistake.

    China’s Communists Rewrite the Rules for Foreign Businesses - The New York Times

    TLDR

    As more and more foreign companies decide to locate themselves in China's growing economy, the CCP seeks a say in how these companies do business. According to several foreign companies operating in China, the Party has recently started to require permission for certain business decisions.

    Russia and China will always be seen as a rival or competitor if not adversary by the West no matter whether these two countries adopt liberal democracy or not. The fundamental reason is that these two countries have a sufficient mass to ignore the pressure from the West and have potential that can change the West-dominated world order when these two countries become more powerful. This is not about morality, but about geopolitics. Morality discourse is just a pretext and disguise. Those who believe in the morality discouse are naive.

    When India achieves the power level of Russia and China, it is likely that India will also undergo a similar attack from the West media.

    Search "India technology theft" and "China technology theft" on google and see the difference. In the last century, western countries always helped undeveloped countries to grow if they were trying hard enough.

    The only country who would attack India because they think are a threat would be China, because they are their neighbour and a direct competitor on the cheap labour market. That's exactly what you are doing right now, lol.

    O idee foarte buna: China Is Nationalizing Its Tech Sector

    "All this has direct consequences for the trade dispute with the U.S. A recent research note from Natixis SA found that 70 percent of the products targeted by the Trump administration in its initial tariff list fall under the China Manufacturing 2025 initiative, which aims to support Chinese companies in 10 high-tech sectors, including robotics and biotechnology. If Beijing insists on protecting those industries -- as it gives every indication of doing -- significant progress on trade talks seems unlikely."

    Chinezii nu-s idioti si nu se lasa sabotati din exterior.

    A combination of cultural preferences, government decree and modern medical technology in the world’s two largest countries has created a gender imbalance on a continental scale. Men outnumber women by 70 million in China and India.

    Eu as adauga si infanticid asupra copiilor de sex feminin pentru ca in China fata pleaca in familia baiatului, daca o familie ar fi avut o fata, ar fi petrecut batranetea singuri si ar fi murit de foame fara cineva sa aiba grija de ei. De-aia au omorat masiv copiii de sex feminim sperand ca urmatorul sa fie baiat.
