China’s rapid growth and transition towards a more market-oriented economic system have encouraged spectators to predict massive changes to the Chinese political and social system. However, while growth is slowing, the economy remains sound and the Chinese Communist Party emerged from the 19th Party Congress with its strongest leader in years. What makes experts forecast again and again that China is on the verge of collapse? Yukon Huang, former Country Director for China at the World Bank, cuts through the myths and joins us to discuss his new book, "Cracking the China Conundrum: Why Conventional Economic Wisdom is Wrong." His in-depth analysis explores the varied dynamics at play in China’s economic growth today and sheds light on why so many China watchers have gotten it wrong.

An empire that oppresses Tibet, East Turkestan, Inner Mongolia and Taiwan with a communist regime cannot sustain itself in the long-term. There's also a Hong Kong independence party. The whole Cantonese region may become an independent republic.

The assertion that large cities need to grow in the center to reduce air pollution is predicated on the idea that cars pollute. If high speed elevated guideway dual mode vehicles are allowed to be built in China's major cities this conventional wisdom is no longer valid. Guideway vehicles with a Cd of .07 instead of sedans at .33 or pickup trucks at .5 would lower the energy to commute to well below the energy that can be captured from the sunshine 7 feet wide under the elevated guideway. This would transform car pollution to zero from very very high. It would allow the average poor in China to be equal with the rich in terms of mobility. If mobility is improved then job fits are improved increasing work efficiency. High speed guideway using dual mode allows for fast commutes into and around major cities making everyone richer with more leisure time saved from the long present commute.

Last 300 years at least, the world has sat at the feet of Western Powers. It began with Imperialism which later morphed into Democracy. West dominated the world with its wars and later languages, culture, philosophy & technology. Literally for anything & everything the world looked to west for advise. The nations that developed during this period, Japan, Korea, etc., had to change completely and adopt western culture & standards. No other system/narrative was acceptable unless endorsed by the west. China has now come back after over 200 years of dormancy. When China started developing, it was forced to comply with Western Standards but it did not give up its core values & philosophy. With the rise of China, it has gained sufficient momentum & expertise and brought in its powerful culture & philosophy. Problem is that the world persists in looking at China with the same western lens, as if there is no other workable system & bench marks !!

yukon huang is the chinese version of tokyo rose. his english is pretty good but the content is pure communist chinese propaganda. huang's idea on asking what the chinese people and the american people think of each other's countries is such a tricky fallacy: the chinese and the americans know so little about the others' country, that the answers are wrong from both sides! nor are the people of the street in china or america experts on those countries' economies. he is trying to lull the american people to sleep. the chinese's greatest strength is deception. the best introductory book for westerners on chinese character should be 'the art of war'. it is but a long list of ruses and deceptions. a better analysis of china can be found here from paul dibb and john lee: ruvid.net/video/video-_AvNT3vyzr0.html

Hang on a minute. The point should have been that China is under enormous economic pressure from Mr Trump and they are facing a large recession over the long term. China has had a programme of economic domination in place for some time based not on their armies strength but trade. Too many scenarios of their heinous strategy to list here, however, two examples; Infrastructure bribery in the Pacific Island nations and the proclaimed ownership of the whole of the South China Sea. Furthermore, the idea that free trade in its current forms is good for Australia is just a political wet dream. We are the losers worldwide. China banks on this trade weakness in our politicians. Do not be mislead China who has piggybacked on the western economies for the last thirty years is very nervous. They are not used to a leader who stands his ground. Kudos to Mr Trump.

Focusing on the question of what economy is most powerful largely misses the point. China's population is about four times that of the United States. Even if China falls far short of the American standard of living, it is likely to become the world's largest economy. Talk about power really centers on control over technology. Technology in Eastern Asia needs to include Japan, South Korea and Taiwan along with China. That group appears already to have passed Europe by. Its strength in technology is already enough to make the idea of some kind of American monopoly over the control of technology a joke. No doubt Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan would prefer a world where there is some balance of power between the United States and China. But, the image of some Americans where those countries join the United States in some kind of divorce that isolates them from China seems highly unrealistic.

Huang comments on American manufacturing jobs are highly misleading and raise a large question about the quality of his opinions. It is true that American manufacturing jobs recovered a little following the 2009 crash. But the facts of the American non farms payroll show that the United States lost almost 30% of its manufacturing jobs between 2000 and 2016. The jobs were largely lost in the two major economic downturns in 2000-2001 and 2008-2009.

Do not mix up communist China with real China. Chinese communists use China to build a criminal global empire that is completely different from real empire of China in the past. Commies hate culture, religion, nationalism... of which China was a perfect objective to destroy. And they did just that through 5 bloody socialist campaigns. The last one killed more than 50 millions people and headed to starving the whole nation, so they swing from Marxist socialist criminal system to the opposite criminal system, Marxist capitalism (do not pretend you do not know what it is, read Karl Marx’s "Das Kapital" to understand it or go to China see it for yourself) which is an economical whorehouse which enslaves one billion Chinese, using foreigner’s corporations money, to profit foreigners and the red bourgeoisie. Why do Chinese commies love foreigners corporations that much? No, commies only use their money and China to destroy the world economy and to steal money so they can arm themselves to the teeth, and their ultimate goal is to destroy the USA. They use cheap labors to steal the USA economy to make the USA weak so that they can attack the USA in 2020. I am very eager waiting for them to attack. The main point is that Chinese commies use China too kill you, DO NOT GET FOOLED BY CHINESE COMMUNISTS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE.

India does have a property bubble that has now started to burst. Just because no one talks about it does not mean it's not there. However, the property price in India is not double that of China. Property prices in China are way higher, what he said was a complete lie (or he forgot to apply the currency exchange rate). This does not even take into account the fact that in India, you actually own your share of the land when you buy a property, in China, you only get a 70 lease on the underlying land. We are not even comparing the price of the same thing in here.

China's cities are too small. In fact, if they were larger they would have less pollution. China doesn't have a corruption problem. Authoritarian governments foster innovation. Social protests and unrest in China strengthen the Communist leadership. The 'All conventional wisdom is wrong' concept has driven this guy mad.

Simple is Stupid. Don't be such a simpleton, Huang. Apple doesn't invest in China because they cant as western businesses do all over the world. From the financial perspective and "ownership" perspective. Of which China has no financial bases. Add to the mix, the constant IP law battles with Asian countries, the IP ripp off market in China that's powering their collapsing "Open Source" model concerning their IT investments... all in all, China needs to play nice wit the rest of the western world or go their own with the basket cases of South Asia, Africa and South and Central America. Good effin' luck.

Hmmm. Wonder why he cherry picks his data and moreover manipulates his presented data. For instance: Yes Apple does not have investments in China BUT their largest contractor Qualcom who produces the iPhone does have MASSIVE investments in China. Secondly, by his words, 25 dollars of iPhone construction would likely be 100 dollars or more if produced in USA be cause China has such a lower labor cost, so shouldn't he us costs that it would have been if produced in the USA? He is sounding like a China mouthpiece.

In manufacturing USA can not compete with China on a level playing field. In services USA still has an edge and China will open up its services sector provided USA opens its Labour market and allows Chinese companies to build infrastructure in USA which it sorely needs to build any way.

Till 2008 China used to keep its surpluses in US treasuries,but after the bust of the housing bubble US started doing QE ( printing money to pay debt ) . This got China worried . So they came up with OBOR projects were in they loan there savings / surplus money to 65 countries to build infrastructure. Most of this infrastructure is build by Chinese companies using Chinese resources and they get better returns on there loans than what US treasuries gave them. On top of it helps them buy political influence in these 65 countries. This has got America worried .... hence the trade war..... as America can not retaliate militarily against China as it did against the oil rich Arab countries to support their inefficient business.

From Number 3 to Number 1economic power in less than 20 years cannot be denied. it is how China has invested its income in improving the lives of its people while the US was number One and now number two has fewer rail links, bus service, growing poverty, lowering nutrition with people buying processed foods, and education standards going down the drain, with growth in drug use, increased medical care, increased credit and financial problems resulting in home foreclosures, is to say something is not right with America that points to throwing the money away by giving the emphasis on handing money out to Pentagon that has always hungered for more wars and a blank check.

The US is producing A LOT. It's manufacturing more than it used to, and it manufactures more in $ terms than China. It's manufacturing is not employing as many people as it used to because of higher efficiency and automation. Its consumption is so high that it consumes what it produces and also imports. That's his point, which you didn't seem to understand.

China does not need to grow a bigger economy than the United States. China just needs to give North Korea or Iran a nuclear bomb and a missile or 2 to EMP the US and Europe and have North Korea or Iran take all the blame and retaliation because after all they are crazy. The US will die off and disappear. Then China will overwhelm Russia with illegal immigrants and take over the world.

China has not transitioned to capitalism. China has temporarily allowed capitalism in order to pay for communism later after defeating its internal and external enemies. It is pure Leninism from what Lenin did in 1921 (Marxism-Leninism), albeit on a much larger scale. Lenin's theoretical justification was that a country that was agrarian and had never had capitalism needed to go through a capitalist phase in order to evolve to socialism. That was because Marx blew it when he thought that capitalist countries would be the first to go communist. Leninism is a patch to communism 2.0. When China goes back to communism after the US is destroyed, they know who all the capitalist-minded people are and will kill them.

American's don't want to hear anything positive about China. It's not in their (US) interest. The US wants to brain wash all Americans that no matter what this #1 mentality of arrogance keeps them strong economically and militarily in their mind even though the decline of the American dream and power has started 20+ years ago. Can't blame them. Just the same kind of arrogance and ignorance as the British were during the height of the 19th century... Where they at now... Avg American of middle class are worst off now than 10 yrs ago. More Americans on food stamps today than ever. US debt in the TRILLION. US intervention in the Middle East countries was a complete failure. US Manufacturing? Where? Any manufacturing are all foreign companies in the US and the hourly wage earner are American. Where is the "be proud to be American" then?

What Dr. Huang’s ideas inspire me most is not about re-examining those conventional wisdoms but pointing out that the “Thucydides' Trap” is NOT inevitable, that through more self-reflection 、mutual development and open collaboration, unnecessary conflicts can be avoided and win-win can take the place of win-lose or lose-lose (which is probably where the situation will go based on what’s happening these days). I think that’s the most significant aspiration that both China and US should keep in mind. God bless China. God bless US. And God bless a peaceful and prosperous world!

Growth rate alone in China doesn't reflect the true economic status health of the economy within the China. Of the Chinese population of 1.1 billion or whatever. nearly 800k chinese citizens live in sub-sarahn african poverty. Stats reveal about half billion; 500k live on $1000 US annually, and another $300k live on $2000 US annually Well not surprisingly weve seen major growth. China cannot survive a trade war.

I have BA with a focus in accounting and economics. The case study to focus down on is how Japan had its amazing rise and that same conversation was on the lips of economist about Japans rise up into the 90's. Then seemingly it stagnated in its growth and never recovered again to those percentages seen before Japans crash. China has all those indicators and is undoubtely going to see those same economic factors like debt insolvency, wage increase ceiling, etc. But the big sad difference is China and its economic comparison Japan is that it will never reach that same quality of living standards. Why? Japanese corporate loans system begin to see a massive flux of insolvencies and thats because though lots of cash flow was seen moving around but profits made became nonexistent and thus that buffering margin became zero if not even negative. China will face this in the coming years too but unlike a real democrazt capitalist system operatring the loan distribution system. unfortunately many loans had been given through corrupt means and not based on the true economic vality of the many business. So will see this play out and lets get serious no person nor nation can ignore thyose samwe princle talked about by Adam Smith!!! All his reasoning's apply to this day as well as trhey applied then. communist China gave many many loans as favours rather than based on true economic validity of those business. Thus as wages and other cost increase so will shrink profits to very tight happenings. China isnt going to survive As a nation once the economic screws get tight either.... much internal strive will tear it apart.
