They're #1 in population due to the freakish rate at which they mulitply.

But in terms of their long-term economic success, I wouldn't bet much on it. Communism has proven to be a failure throughout history.

According to the NMC and COW they had been number one for over five years already and in terms of PPP four years. Why do you think every nation in the world trades with China.

But we've never seen Communist Capitalism before. About the closest we've seen is when slaves were the most valuable commodity in the United States.....Wait a minute, that's it, the Chinese have enslaved their own people, the didn't even need to import from Africa thereby avoiding the middleman. Smart little bastards, aren't they. If you're feeling patriotic, then work for free suckers!
