The Coming China Wars: Where They Will be Fought and how They Will be Won

Front Cover
FT Press, 2006 - Business & Economics - 286 pages
China is now the factory floor for global production. It sells to the world at the competition-crushing China Price and we as consumers benefit greatly. Unfortunately for the world, this story doesn't end with a cornucopia of cheap Chinese goods on our store shelves. Rather, it begins precisely at this point. It is a story about how the rapid and often chaotic industrialization of the most populous country on the planet has put China on a collision course with the rest of the world. The emergence of China as an economic superpower is currently moving on a path that will affect literally every nation and every person in the world, and potentially cause great turmoil and conflict. The primary purpose of this book is to raise the level of economic and political awareness to a level which will allow all of us, including the Chinese, to begin to think much more deeply about how to stop the Coming China Wars and to participate in the set of very hard choices that must be made.; The coming China Wars will be fought over everything from decent jobs, liveable wages, and leading edge technologies to strategic resources such as oil, copper, and steel and eventually to our most basic of all needs: bread, water, and air. Unless all of the nations of this world, immediately address these impending conflicts, the results could be catastrophic.
