The gorilla in the room

Sullivan of Bucyrus waves to that gorilla. China, he says, will be the leading economic superpower in the next 10 to 15 years.

Why is it that America is so reluctant to admit this? And how will our egos manage being number 2?


  1. Did he mean that China will become so in that time frame, or that they are the leader and will remain so for that period of time? If the latter, who could be next?

  2. Will get there in 10 to 15 years. No comment as to how long.

  3. While China rises the US has put itself in a position of getting blackmailed from China who is financing our debt and supplies our goods and the Middle East who supplies our energy. We are owned and at the same time have the most corrupt and ineffective government in our history (both parties). This is not a combination for future success
