China is not going to surpass the U.S. in retail sales this year as trade conflict weighs
China is unlikely to surpass the U.S. in retail sales this year as previously expected thanks to the damaging effect of the current trade conflict between the two powers, but that milestone is likely to happen in 2021.

Something about this doesnt add up. How can 1.4 billion people be spending less on retail that 300 million?

WINNING! China can talk tough but in reality they are a paper tiger. As companies leave in droves their economy will slow.

What is so good about American out spent Chinese? Americans buy stuff with credit and Chinese buy stuff with cash. The Americans will end up with debt but Chinese will not.

China will eventually surpass us. Its inevitable because sheer math dictates this with or without the trade war. My 2021 China's economy will be 40% larger than ours and by 2030, 400% larger. Its not our fault from falling from #1 because we dont have 1.4 trillion people. It is just facts and reality.

The U.S. should have been developing a neighbor like Mexico for all manufacturing instead of a country on the other side of the planet. They are ungrateful for everything the West has done for them and would still be a 3rd world country if not for Western money flowing in.
