Do you think China will be the next Superpower? Really?
I think the better question is... "When will the world accept that China is already a superpower?" And when should we stop calling it as an "Emerging Market or a Developing Country". I think China already has emerged. Their economy is now larger than Japan, the UK, France and the rest of the "Developed" world. China is a superpower in its own right at this point. Yes by western notion of a "superpower" ie "military might", it still haven't reached the level of the US and the USSR. (but well they're getting there.. and fast) But one thing to note about China, is that they don't need to conquer other countries to exude power and influence. They are influencing so many countries all over the world with their economic might, and we literally sometimes have no choice but to bow down. I am from the Philippines which has long been influenced by the US for so many years. And even from here, we can feel the extent of China's reach. Most of the infrastructure projects are financed by the Chinese. Our army's weapons are even donated by the PRC. Activities in the Diplomatic area has also been increasingly focused on China. :)
