what do you think of china's rise?
Roger H Mayo
China dramatic rise over the last forty years is a testament to the tenacity, risk taking ability and hard work of the people of China. They have taken a country that was poor and made it into a global giant with the largest foreign currency reserves, global investment capabilities with commercial and technological achievements that is and will be widely respected globally.

But they aren't.
They are repeating the same self-serving, blind nationalistic bullying tactics, techniques and strategy practiced by the existing and preceding great powers
So, when looking at history, and of the numerous times when a rising power seeks to supplant the existing power, and it ends in conflict, combined with the scarcity of world leaders of high quality and strategic vision, well,
I am worried about the future.

It's one of the great civilizations achieving its normal level of success. That's natural. Interestingly, this time, it will engage with the world. It's great to have a fresh viewpoint on the grand scale, joining Europe and the USA. So far, it's a lot less threatening than Russia. Hopefully it will stay that way.
Michel McGill, Born, lived and worked in China.
It is magnificent. Chinese industrialization benefits population more than the population benefited by previous industrialization of all developed countries. Previous industrialization benefit a small portion of world population in the expense of other countries by war, slave trade and opium trade, while China did non of those in the industrialization. Historically, this is the most peaceful industrialization.
Chinese rising is the only rising compliant with Pareto Optimal.

A state directed economy is extremely difficult to micromanage. Consequently, there are tremendous amounts of waste. The transition to a free market system allowed for the dramatic expansion of the Chinese economy.
It’s nothing short of amazing. Every time I go to Shanghai, they’ve built a new subway line! I don’t think people realize how poor China was just a generation or so ago.
I would of course like to see improvements, such as in the education realm and of course the “good world citizen” realm, though I have to admit there aren’t many role models for the latter.

China has massively expanded its economy and was successful in pulling out 200 million people from poverty. China has almost wiped out urban poverty due to this economic boom and raised the standard of living of its people. This is greatly appreciated in outer world and puts a good example before other developing countries. As a native of a neighbouring country to China I feel positive on China’s rise and also expect it to have some constructive approach to the world rather than using hard power to establish its big influence.

Just show some photos and you'll feel it.
This is Shanghai, 30 years ago. As you can see, there’s nothing in Pudong.
This is Shanghai, right now. They have built the second tallest building in the world, which is 632 meters (2073ft) tall. And the building is in Pudong, which was a place with full of grass 30 years ago. Now, Pudong in Shanghai is just like Manhattan in New York, there are skyscrapers everywhere.
This is Beijing, 30 years ago:
This is Beijing, right now:
This is Shenzhen, 30 years ago it was still a small village:
This is Shenzhen as well, one of the largest cities in China:
So that's China's rise, everyone can feel it.
