Imagine a bucket full of water where you repeatedly dip your cup in and drink. We drink happily all day long and the water is almost gone and suddenly late in the day a group of 5 chinese guys suddenly dip twice to drink. We bitch about their insatiable appetite and how they have drunk more than us.

Wonder how much of the world resources they already own or control. They have to be careful or it will reach a tipping point when some of the G7s will call mutiny when they have no where to tap for needed resources.

The young toddler chinese are going to have the best life on this planet in a decade or less.

China is the factory of the world. So a significant part of the resources it imports is used to produce goods for the rest of the world.
