I'm Bearish when it comes to China.

Other than having hordes of low wage workers who can manufacture cheap widgets and minerals, China has nothing going for it. It's population is getting older (thanks it's one child policy), and the new generation of middle class Chinese expect higher wages. When half of China's population is too old to work and the younger half demand wage parity with their counterparts in western nations, then where do they go from there?
