The Dragon Awakes

Dean Calbreath writes in the San Diego Union-Tribune about China, the fastest growing economy in the world.

Some economists predict that by 2015, China will have enough spending power to become the world’s primary engine of economic growth, unseating the United States, which has held that role since the end of World War II. By 2040 – and perhaps much sooner – China may have a greater gross domestic product than the United States, giving it the world’s No. 1 economy. It now ranks at No. 3.
