No, you doubt about Chinese wisdom!
I am sure we Chinese would certainly win more Nobel prizes as ...



If people believe the State is their provider and it alone knows best what people need, want and deserve, then the people have successfully been dumbed down into preschool children that happily accept what Papa State doles out to them.

Currently college education is all the rage in China but to be frank: nobody likes it. It's the same as the food people used to eat in commune dining halls back when everyone was conscripted into a work brigade: everyone ate as much as they could, and then some, and a lot of the food was wasted.

How many modern Chinese can read and understand Laotse?

Why not ask Tsung-Dao Lee and Chen Ning Yang?

How about funding to support research projects or scientific research fees - should it be government funded or from private company who pay for it or a combination of both, in your opinion?

Okay, so let me correct the title of this thread:

"How would Chinese win more Nobel prizes?"

Furthermore 'Chinese win more prizes‘ sounds better than ‘more Chinese win the honor’! ----------
All Chinese become delighted when they see some Chinese athlete is being offered gold medal in the Olympic games while the winner always thinks this honor should belong to the whole nation instead of one person!’
The most useful knowledge and skill that we are lack of is that of about human!

A good question.

In the case of China, either or both can do but subject to one caveat. Before open publication of the discovery, there should be a period to assess whether the discovery has commercial potential. If yes, the funders whether government or government-linked private companies should benefit as first-movers to tap the commercial value of the discovery. As example, say one day fusion physics is made possible by a clever discovery which opens vista of unlimited energy that can transform industries, economies and markets. The home country should be the first to operationalize the discovery even as the discovery goes into worldwide publication.

That way, more revenue can come in that can fund other research and increase the pool of researchers. Because China has an objective to increase her global reach in cutting-edge excellence. Allied to this matter is protection of her own intellectual property right which i equate as right to improve on something, what more find something new and breakaway.

Should there be some specialized funding goes into potential Nobel prize winning projects since some of us are so concerned of winning of the prize?  Does it work better to link potential prize-winning projects to commercialized/revenue generated research results?

In your opinion, nobel prize winning projects should only be commercial benefit generated sensitive rather than purely scientific discoveries?  I doubt it would make the Prize become commertically sensitive worldwide instead...

I think the Nobel Prize winning should be some symbol in encouraging genuine break-through research results which can benefit the whole human nature rather than some indicators in decidng a country's national strength.  That is, to win for world-wide reputation or to win for contribution to the whole human kind's development process right?
