Cost of maintaining an aircraft carrier in the 1970s for US was about 1.25times that of USSR.
Today, US has more than ten sailing into any body of waters without need to inform ahead. Perhaps, cost could have increaased tremendously high but US could afford it. Simply shows that US economy is still very strong. Science and technology propels it to be the top.
So, China must and strive, otherwise even being the single largest economy, there is no place under the sun.

Here is an interesting read up to scare China

(Updates story to say the ship will be commissioned in summer.)

A $13 billion U.S. aircraft carrier is about to hit the open seas.

It’s the USS Gerald R. Ford (CVN-78), the most expensive and most advanced warship ever built. The ship was christened in November 2013 and is scheduled to be commissioned this summer, said Lieutenant Jesus Uranga of the Navy Office of Information. It had been slated to be commissioned this month.

Maybe a paradigm shift in concept of military conflict is due.  You don't need a massive armed force ...

Military spending is another venues to improve level of development for science and technology.
Whether there is an excellent system to demonstrate might, infantry is required for order.
The landscape for war is never the same, what was in the past could repeat itself. Korean and Vietnam Wars proved it.
It needs solutions - physical and techological with continuous improvement.
Objective of war is to conquer land and exploit natural resources.

Objective of war should be to force peace. But yes, maintain continuous improvement.

Now it's laser bullets, flexible rooms in aircraft carriers and total coordination of space air sea and land members of an arrow thrust with a long-range attack stealth bomber as arrowhead. Tomorrow another idea, another configuration. How about a bose-einstein fourth-matter condensate pulse or a high velocity nanoparticle beam?

National defence is top priority for a nation. During the early days of the founding of People's Republic of China, US appeared to be ready to wipe it out. Somehow, US failed in two large scale contests of military campaigns but had to ship home corpses. The military hardware of US has always been more superior than those in use to contest. How could this be?
Perhaps, US wants to test if there will be ultimate destruction of humankind. If so, it would be great!
