Could you see China becoming the next superpower of the world in 2040 and 2050?
Some people believe that the next superpower in the world will be an African nation, but this is expected to happen long after the year 2100.
This idea is based on interpretations of Nostradamus, a historical figure known for making predictions. Some say when he mentioned "the darkest people," he wasn't referring to evil but rather to Africans.
According to this interpretation, this rise of African nations as superpowers will occur after significant changes in the world due to global warming. These changes are expected to reshape the world's geography by the begng of the 22nd century, around 2100 AD.
When Nostradamus talks about "kings among men," he might mean that these African nations will become the dominant superpowers in the world.
Nostradamus made other predictions too, like Europe facing severe winters, the Indian subcontinent experiencing a great famine, and Asia dealing with massive floods. However, these events are expected to take much longer to occur.
I would say that China is already a superpower now.
If you look at the numbers, China is not going to be a hyperpower like the US. For one nation to have the power the US had required a unique set of circumstances that are unlikely to happen again. I think by 2050, there will be five or six superpowers depending on how you count.

China is already a superpower, economically, technologically, and militarily.
It is not yet the dominant superpower. That title still goes to the USA.
But the USA is in decline, while China continues to ascend. I expect China will overtake the USA by 2050.
No. China is going to be getting close to the worst of their demographic crisis at that point. They are going to be drowning in pension and medical payments. China will be significantly less of a player in geopolitics in the specified timeframe.
For millenia, China had never aspired the status of the world‘s superpower, although she mostly had been wearing that crown, in reality.
China has made it clear that the government's goal is to achieve common prosperity for all her people. Nothing more, nothing less.
They have succeeded in lifting 800 million Chinese out of absolute poverty. They will continue to lift them up further to a middle income living standard.
Superpower status is craved by nations that are power hungry. They will use powers at their disposal, economic, technological, military and propaganda, to suppress others in order to be ahead. I call that the Tonya Harding Syndrome.
No, China doesn't belong to that exclusive club. She stands with the develo nations of the world. Her philosophy is best described by the idioms:
I know, because I am Chinese, ethnically and culturally.
Is China the world's next superpower?
China is not Japan in 1940s
China is not Soviet Union in 1950s
The old definition of superpower doesn’t work. China want to be who they are though the history - The middle kingdom without the need of expansion
They are lazy superpower that just doesn’t want to be vulnerable to blockade like German in World War I. they can buy African resource by money, without the need of colonialism. They don’t care about Iraq, Afghanistan or Israel…
They would not be typical superpower. If you are not China neighbor, you doesn’t care about them like what you did with the Soviet or American
Would you bet on China as the world's next superpower?
You don’t need to bet. It is already a superpower. It is not a hegemon, but a super power it is. China’s GDP is second to the US and predictions are that before 2030, China’s GDP will surpass the US. China’s PPP GDP already exceeds the US. China’s power is economic. China is transitioning from a labor intensive, trade dominated economy to one focused on technology and rising domestic consumption. Why do you think the US is making so much fuss today about China. The US fears China’s rise.
How will China be a superpower in the future?
For the moment, China has six priorities:-
Take their Economy to become the First Asian High Value Economy by 2035
Modernize their Military fully and capably to defend themselves and their territorial integrity by 2030
Common Prosperity - To develop and help push poor and low income people to middle class in terms of standard of living
Global Security Initiative - To use soft power and establish a different global peace through FAIR ECONOMICS than the West has been maintaining through rigid colonialism and meddling
Ensure Food Security for it's Citizens under the worst situations including Blockades
Ensure Energy Security by focus on Supply of Non Renewables and development of Renewables
Nothing more Nothing less
That is called Roadmap 2050, Make in China 2025, New Army 2030, BRI, OBOR and various other names
No mention of Superpower or Hegemony
China NEVER WANTS to be a HEGEMON, nor did they ever want to be a Hegemon
They don't want any territory that they don't consider theirs historically
How is China becoming the next superpower? Would it be possible in one decade?
It already is, militarily AND financial, no need to wait a decade, the thing is, they are a benevolent super power, purely defensive, and will definitely never use their power to bully others like the US continuously does, China will use their super powers to help other countries to develope and build as they are doing already through the BRI. It will make the world a much happier and peaceful place.
Will China become a 1st world nation by 2050?
1st world, this is a political concept, not an economic concept.
I guess the question you want to ask is whether China can become a developed country in the 2050.
In the foreseeable future, China could not be an ally of the United States. There are conflicts between ideology and interests in two countries.So,politically, we can not belong to the 1st world at all.
However, if you are talking about achieving the level of developed countries economically, I think this is possible.
If China's political and economic development is protected by high speed and stability before 2050, I believe that China can reach the level of developed countries. Even now, the development level of some big cities in China may have surpassed some developed countries.
Of course, China is faced with some thorny problems and the road of development is not easy. Population problems, pollution problems, industrial technology upgrading, the threat of war and the instability of the world economy may all affect China's economic development.
We can not predict the future, but we know that a bright future will come from today's efforts and struggles.
Is China going to emerge as a superpower in the next twenty years?
1.Up to now
Despite its rapid growth, China is still a develo country. China is not even a developed country, nor is it a superpower. What's more, the huge population means that China needs more resources to make itself a developed country. China has been busy out of poverty, not in global hegemony
2.In the future.
The formation of the super power is a special product of the special historical background. China does not have the opportunity of the United states. World War II led to widespread destruction or a severe blow to the world's major economies, and only the United States retained full economic strength. After the Second World War, no country could surpass the United States in military and economic, or even close to its level.
America's military spending and technology ensured its military supremacy, and its military bases spread all over the world.This guarantees the military hegemony of the United states.
The US dollar is the global currency, and hundreds of American businesses control the lifeblood of the world economy. This guarantees the economic hegemony of the United states.
Like military bases, The United States has many allies around the world., and the United States is the leading builder of many political order after the war. These guarantees the political hegemony of the United states.
China clearly does not have these conditions, we have to face the pressure of the United States everywhere, the United States will not be willing to watch China beyond it.
So China has no chance and no strength to become a superpower.
