Couldn't agree with you more. China should speed up the development of its own technology. China h ...

Today it costs 3 to 4 billion USD to build a state of the art semiconductor fab.
The record is approaching 10 billion for the biggest fab.
China can easily afford its own now while in the US it's become an issue.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

Your hilarious spoof of a street peddler reminds me of my “vacation” to Madagascar which is part ...
Africa. My wife and I were constantly harassed by street hustlers trying to sell us something or provide us some “services”


I've experienced the same in West Nanjing Road in Shanghai.

Careful there.

You sound exactly like Cecil Rhodes or King Leopold in judging native Afreicans ...

That was told to me by a European — a French guy — who moved to Madagascar to escape the high cost of taxes and high cost of living in France. He owned and ran a boutique hotel but decided to sell after getting burned out from the hassles of doing business in Madagascar. I don’t view his remarks as racist — his wife is a local beauty — just a reflection on the realities of life there.

Maybe. Then again you still sounded exactly like Cecil Rhodes. It didn't surprise me. Chinese wh ...

I know what you mean — East Asians tend to judge other Asians in a similar vein — due to cultural differences. I refrain from commenting about other ethnicities due to my years of living in multicultural California which has sensitized me to ethnic stereotyping. But East Asians live in racially and ethnically homogeneous societies so they (or shall I say “we”)  tend to be too judgemental about other ethnic groups whose cultures or histories we know nothing about.

My apologies if my earlier comments offended you.
