I’m not a huge fan of Trump. I don’t buy his books. I didn’t watch his TV show and truthfully, I didn’t listen to this entire interview. But, I heard enough of it to consider it important to share.
Much has been made of the size of the Chinese economy surpassing that of the U.S. Well lah de frickin dah!. China has a population of 1.3 BILLION people! Geez, we have less than a third of that. So, we still DWARF them in EVERY respect but total GDP.
Much of China’s population still live in wretched poverty. What success they “enjoy” is due largely to currency manipulation and a “labor market” slightly better than slavery. Further, their human rights record continues to be appalling. So, let’s not be too quick to pay homage to the wonderful Chinese model of economics. Don’t forget, as a culture they’ve been around for thousands of years. Seems like they could have done a lot better for themselves in all that time. Let’s keep some perspective.
