This century, China will shape history in a significant way at a time of global uncertainty.
For the last hundred years, the world has been ruled by Capitalism and Democracy.
The power shifts to a Communist country and System. The rise of China via economic, political and military growth is nothing but amazing. In just 60+ years, China has grown to be a world power, welding vast wealth and political influence. This history China is paving affects us all and for better or worse, it is worth to note.
What to watch:
Capitalistic growth vs Socialist ideologies: At face value, this would seem to contradict each other. How this can happen and be sustained is something that is worth studying and watching.
Global Economic power: How China will use this new found hegemony success through out the world? Before western businesses would "invest" in other countries infrastructure and profit from their resources, benefiting specific corporations in the process. China has done the same in quite a different manner, by investing as a country, not a business, benefiting China as a whole.
The rise of Prosperity in China: Due to the progressive reforms and an opening of markets. we have seen the raising of 250 million people out of poverty, in less than 20 years, is something that has NEVER happened before. How far it goes and the limits there are, should be interesting and noting.
Military: How China uses this power plays a role in world policy. Defense is the mantra it follows vs the expansionist role the west adopted. Never has a world power used its military might solely for defense. What would happen in conflict and the performance of it's structure, has yet to be tested.
Cultural changes: With more Chinese getting richer and materialism on the rise, how will this affect Chinese culture? Will more citizens abandon such traditional values of the "collective" and become more and more individualized and what will Chinese society look like in the near future?
So far China has taken many steps forward and is setting an example of success in a very different way.
