Superiority Of China

Better Essays
Analysts claim that China will eventually surpass the United States in economic superiority. Due to economic, technological power and rapid growth, China is creeping towards the United States of America (U.S.) at an alarming rate (Garver). China has experienced high growth rates and is viewed as the largest exporter of goods and services. The U.S. has continued to support the rise of China’s power with friendly relations and perceives China as a peaceful country (Garver). The economic dominance of the United States has fell off from what it was, but this does not correlate with China surpassing the U.S. It is time for the U.S. to recognize that China is not going to sit back and let the U.S. continue to have economic superiority over the world. …show more content…
China’s strategy consists of exporting goods at extremely low prices due to a devalued currency. However, China’s strategy of keeping low prices will not hold up over the years for a couple of reasons. China’s renminbi being approved by the I.M.F as a main world currency will make China’s exports less competitive. As overseas central banks make large purchases of the renminbi, it will make the renminbi appreciate (Bradsher). Therefore, China will have a difficult time preventing the currency from appreciating, which in turn will make exports from China less beneficial (Bradsher). Due to the ironclad law, China’s goods will not be as desirable (Trefler 42). Even though the U.S. owes China a large sum of money for the exports brought into the country, eventually the yuan will rise to a level that is no longer competitive (Trefler 42). When the U.S. buys goods from China, the U.S. needs to buy the Chinese yuan to complete the transaction. As the U.S. continues to demand goods from China, it will increase the value of China’s currency. Chinese workers can be paid almost nothing, but none of that will matter (Trefler 43). The value of the currency will strengthened to a point that the wages that companies pay Chinese workers will cancel out by the currency conversion (Trefler 43). In the past, countries would run huge trade surpluses to threaten the U.S., but it never mattered (Trefler 43). In this …show more content…
will sustain its economic superiority over China. The Chinese per capita is significantly lower compared to the U.S. and the quality of the U.S. GDP surpasses the Chinese GDP. As the Chinese per capita is still too low, the country is facing a demographic consequence that will lead to an increase in the elderly. As a result, it will lead to economic decline. The U.S. and other countries will continue to import Chinese goods for now, but the currency will eventually appreciate and make the Chinese currency less desirable. This will destroy one of China’s main drivers for economic growth. Lastly, it is time for the U.S. to realize that China does want to be a world power. As a result, the U.S. needs to widen the technology gap and show the world why no country will ever surpass the U.S.

    This shift in demand is presumably a major root of the problem because consumers interest in foreign commodities has changed and results in lacking investment for China.

    Reasons for Chinese devaluation  The currency is one of the only determinant of the exports of the country .

    The rise of China’s economy and development in their society has become a concern to the United States. The United States has been the world’s post-industrial lasting superpower and hegemonic world leader. It is uncertain whether the rapid growth of China will lead to a peaceful coalition with the United States or will it lead to the rivalry of surpassing the United States as the new hegemonic leader. Arguably, theories such as, optimistic realism, liberalism, and constructivism rationalize that China will continue to grow their economy peacefully, without any opposition or conflict in the future with the United States. However, the pessimistic side argues that the rise of China will lead to a mass conflict with the United States, yet there…

    The United States already relies on places such as China for way to many products as it is because they can make it cheaper and quicker then we can in the US. If the US and China were to go to war with one another many products that we import from China will become very scarce or limited in quantity, and this will cause many products to become very expensive when we could have just kept the products domesticly made and not have to worry about an issue like this occuring.I believe the US should be more independent when it comes to trade because if you rely on everyone else to produce goods for you, once you lose them as an ally or trade partner then you put the whole country and economy at risk. I believe that the government should give business subsidies that will discourage outsourcing, because to many americans are lossing jobs because these companies realize how much money they can save by outsourcing a division, or part of their company overseas. I am not against free trade however when people in this country are losing jobs to people overseas their is a problem with the scale and amount that the US relies on this free trade.I think trading should leave all parties involved better off but when the U.S leaves with massive amounts of debt, and thousands of people being laid off from outsourcing…

    They make their products and rely on their own technology inventions making this even more easier for both the U.S. and China because if China can easily make products with a low cost of payment then we won’t be worrying so much about the cost of military inventions that would need to be made. China is known for it’s struggling economy, meaning there’s a lot of poverty that was going around China because of the decreasing number of jobs. This is another reason why people think that China will never be the next superpower, because what kind of country can only be focused on being a superpower when it has so many flaws to take care of. We can’t choose a superpower all willy-nilly but then it turns out that they themselves have so many conflicts going on and they end up becoming worse than the first superpower. However, China has yet again been able to fix some of their problems, one being the poverty of their population.…

    Historians realize that the United States and other western powers are wealthy and powerful but are unsure if China views them as an example. We could assume that China resents these nations wealth. Once again the root of this theory is speculative and without more evidence, what is the ultimate goal? The liberalism method relies on the presumption that China considers power to be national wealth. A lack of evidence to prove or disprove this assumption make this theory unlikely.…
