What has Mao's China invented?

1 billion 300 million Chinese along with polluted air and contaminated environment that drive them to beg for visa to emigrate. If you think that is bad, wait 'til potable water becomes totally undrinkable, then western embassies will be besieged with wailing, sniffling Chinese with crying babies begging for more visas.

Will USofA issue 100 million visas to Chinese? A drop in a bucket for China.

But don't worry, the communist princelings will be alright, especially those communist princelings who "studied" at the expensive Usanian universities and got to know the Usanian 1%-ters.
Let the dice fly high

The rate of research and development today is so big it is pretty pointless to try to list it all.  Maybe you an look at patents and scientific papers to do some comparisons between countries . But that is hardly a perfect measure also. Some companies pantents everything and some don't even bother.

If the world remains interconnected I doubt any big invention will come solely out of one country.  more likely a new technology will be based on the work of thousands of researchers from all over the world.
It is great for rate of discovery, it is terrible for national prestige.

Has there been any big breakthrough inventions in the modern era (whatever that is?)? Possibly the CERN invented internet could be seen as one such invention, but not even that is a new invention simply a further development of the telephone.

Every engineer all over the world invents different solutions on a lot of problems in everyday life.

Patents is by the way not a good idea in the long run, it halts development and only makes things more expensive for ordinary people and a very few extremely rich.

What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.
