Nothing to be proud of if China's GDP reaches past that of the U.S. ?

Well, even if it is hardly  ...

re:   "at least in the commoner's mind."

Indeed, in this case you most certainly pin-point Uncle Sams commoner mind
  Others only wonder regarding such simplicity ...
     After all, success is not complicated, it is about people, behaviours and attitudes...

At a time when American Vice President Pence found it expedient for him to slam China in an all-out attack on Thursday, providing yet the best proof that America's days as the Number One economy in the world are indeed numbered, we persisted in keeping our fingers crossed and our mouths shut.  The only retort I have heard so far from the Chinese side was a muted one.

It is indeed that much more counter-intuitive for our FM Wang Yi to stand there on the UN podium vehemently DENYING that China has any intention to substitute America as the Big Brother (Yi Ge) amongst the family of nations.  

While I can understand that it is almost second nature for Chinese diplomats to adopt a low profile in presenting China's image, it is quite another matter for Wang Yi to even imply in his UN speech that China is tired of wargames and and that third-world countries should not expect leadership from China any time soon, and that it was best for them to follow America's lead in solving the world's problems even after Trump had until withdrawn from international platforms, shredding all multilateral material agreements that could have served to save the day,

The drop in unemployment figures in the U.S. to its lowest in a long long time is nothing strange.

It is because of the Age Wave demographics.

When a large segment of the American population moves into the baby-boomer retirement age, they are not going to apply for unemployment benefits as unemployed workers.  

Instead, they are just going to stay home and watch their grandchildren or their pampered dogs.

So combining the number of retiring baby-boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) and the low number of job-seekers amongst them, of course the unemployment figure is going to be low.

But does Cheating Donald tell you that?

No.

Does anyone in his cabinet tell you that?

Nope.

That's because they want the public to think they have macro-managed the economy so well that unemployment figures are really going to reflect the current employment situation in America.

Tell that to the millions of skilled and trained white-collar workers who can't find jobs in their fields, and you know it is not the true picture.

Stop pretending and stop this trade war now!
