Not only has their standard of living improved immeasurably, they seem to run their economy pretty well even with, or maybe because of government oversight, which was woefully lacking in the US pre-recession. I hope the US and China don’t engage in future military or economic brinkmanship, as both have too much to lose. China deserves respect, but I am glad to be an American.

It is easy to judge the United States when you have no experience living elsewhere. As for social, economic, environmental, and safety issues, America is one of the better nations in which to live. China is more chaotic than they let you believe. After 7 years in this country, as well as other, Americans who complain about what they have, which is a great life, are just cry babies who want more than they deserve. American do live exceptional lives; most of us just don’t know it.

Here in the US we put our faith in the “unbridled free market capitalists” with our now devastating economic failures. There always is the need for balance and someone needs to be watching those in power and control. I wish the Chinese well and hope that they can resolve their social, safety and environmental issues far better than we “exceptional” Americans have.
