    Do you think MS would have happened if Xerox and IBM had been Chinese Companies?

    Even If Gates was a highly intelligent, clever & marketable guy, would MS have the funding to have gotten it off the ground with China holding the investment capital? Think about it. We are entering into a era where capital is flowing from a rival, one China. Would they have funded the R&D as did American companies who believed in expansion through investing in ideas & innovation?

    Actually, no. Not only does the chinese mind set prohibit it. Inovation went out of their vocabulary a long time ago.

    This is whats troubling for me. American's are known for invention, creativity, risk & innovation. But the Chinese want no part of it so if everything is being exported to China, then the entire world is in trouble.

    No more MicroSoft, no more Apple.....just hard-nosed stultification. See my point? We trade our entire economy, buy everything from these people (mostly from Walmart) & we will get nothing in return except cheap Chinese junk.

    Cheap gas can keep a car going, but it eventually destroys the engine. America's engine is capitalism. Right?

    But......the Chinese are masters of taking what has been created and marketing it to their advantage.........I think the net would continue to grow and develop.......Don't kid yourself about the Chinese.

    Yes, they do Currency Manipulation & Slavery extremely well but innovation....not so much.

    They have also been masters at suppressing any forms of worship & Christianity. This world will be a tomb (dark & dead) if they dominate.

    Jim, China is putting a stranglehold on free trade through underhanded currency manipulation. Were they to phase out currency market intervention, U.S. trade deficit would be cut in half. U.S. GDP would increase by as much as $500 billion , and employment would expand by as many as 5 million new jobs.
