Economics effect on the welfare of the country is even more important than the military defense of the country? So maybe a new council is needed that has a higher authority than the National Defense Council that would be responsible for the overall welfare of the country? 11df-b4e2-00144feabdc0.html  /17/yuanwatching/

What do think is needed???
Is this worth thinking about?

Your writings on China! recent past and present banking systems, methods of loans to industries and to small enterprises and so on are very praise worthy to note,to grasp and fine for world economists,social and economic policy makers and to policy makers.
You and other journalists, mainly from American economists, and from government are stressing the importance of valuing her currency appreciations to their tastes and preferences and to be suited to their self interests.
Now, we knew very well and happy to note that her standing in exports,foreign exchanges, more and more finished products, more and more foreign capitals, and mad rush by world famous industries are opening,establishing and strengthening their productions by cheap rates of labor,less transport costs and her dedicated workers to work for longer hours compared to other developed nations and all these recent,steady growth and entering into entire world economic and social scenes are talk of the town and have a clear,clean and attractive eyes to all.
One thing, i want to tell you, as a head of state, and almost and all things are in state controls, public approval, strict discipline work force, more national spirits had made China stands on her own feet and more practically speaking, they are not in other mans shoes and so on.
Then,why, she has to increase her currency level and getting some directions and from some indirect instructions from America to set right their currencies level with other world nations.
i think time has to talk of her currency levels and ask her to increase the value of her currency from number of times.
When actual time comes either by directly or indirectly, and more world pressures, then, China has to rethink their policies and to be implemented in some drastic changing levels to suits to world interests.
That indirect compelling situations will take some more months/years to come to world acceptance levels.
Many western countries are entitled to have own dreams or own say about China!s present currency low level compared to other nations.
No body correctly think, what happened to her interests,aims and objectivities at compulsion mechanism.

All this does is blind us to the causes of the current crisis and thus delay meaningful reforms.

Global competitiveness requires a parity in labor costs, not currency. GM in China was making profits while GM north America needed bailouts.

The problem of US labor costs, is one that nobody, particularly our elected officials are brave enough to face, not to mention fix.

It has successfully brought a great deal of its population up on to the Economic Escalator to a middle-class existence. Which is a remarkable feat in only 20 years since it embarked upon that quest in the early 1990s.

But in doing so, it has created Great Angst about the “Other Half” of its population (and when I write population I mean POPULATION). This rural component of China’s demography has seen nothing like the enhancement in lifestyle that its urban counterpart has enjoyed. All they can count on is the (illegal) sending off of an offspring to the city to find (hopefully) work and thereby support the family back in some rural community.

There is subsequently considerable Pent-up Demand for an improvement in their lifestyle — which is always a dangerous social attribute in any country. But, perhaps, more so in China than elsewhere, since it has come so far in so little time.

I suggest that the Politburo — never very courageous people — are Scared Silly that growth will slow before they can complete the General Restructuring of China from the General Mess it was in before Deng Xiaoping came to power in 1980s. And they have a way to go.

They will do all in their power to keep the status quo in terms of the Chinese Economic Miracle. As for “Democracy”? Well, first it would have to be introduced into the Chinese dictionary of common language usage. Let’s not count on that either any time soon.

By: Beijiner Wed, 17 Mar 2010 00:03:15 +0000 Well said, that is the reality of China’s political, and for the matter discussing here, the economical systems, called it whatever system with Chinese characteristics if you well. That is something missed by the most west, if you want to play with China, it is always true that you need to take China’s uniqueness into consideration, especially in nowadays when China is feeling much self-confidence in its dealing with the world. Call it the way of handling international issues with Chinese characteristics, if you will.
