China supplanting the U.S. as World’s Largest Auto Market
CFP ^ | January 11, 2010 | Judi McLeod

Posted on 01/11/2010 9:18:00 AM PST by bogusname

There’s a picture of a soldier from the People’s Republic of China on this morning’s Drudge Report, depicting, Internet style, how China has finally ended the U.S.’s reign as the world’s largest auto market.

Had Drudge and Bloomberg.com, who broke the story been more journalistically correct, the lone soldier’s picture would have been flanked by those of Obama bagman George Soros and UN Poster Boy, Canadian-in-China Maurice Strong.

For it is a matter of fact that the People’s Republic of China did not naturally nor honestly win the race as world’s largest auto market, Soros and Strong made it happen.

The intent of the deadly anti-American duo back in 2006 was to flood the American market with cheap Chinese made cars.

While Chicoms in the automaking industry cheated by stealing blueprints from North American competitors, Soros and Strong were boasting about how cheap econo-box cars from Communist China would decimate Ford, Chrysler and GM.

The “Poor Man’s Wheels”, the Chery originated from yet another copycat China endeavour. “The Chery is a knockoff of the South Korean Spark, sold in the U.S. in partnership with General Motors.”(Wall Street Journal, March 1, 2006. “GM filed a lawsuit against Chery Automobile Co. for piracy of the car developed by its South Korean Daewoo.”

This chain of events took place back in the days before Barack Obama became the proud owner of the American car industry...

Right and this has nothing to do with the fact that China has about4 times as many people as we do. Even if every single person in America owned a car, and 1/3 of the Chinese owned cars, they would still have a larger car market than us.

The Chery can’t be sold in the US because it doesn’t meet minimum safety standards. Mostly Libs pushed the safety standards here in the US....now are they going to resend them?

——incompetent management, greedy unions and excessive government intervention (excessive emissions controls) didn’t help the situation-—

agreed.
From CIA world factbook:
China Population:
1,338,612,968 (July 2009 est.)

USA Population:
307,212,123 (July 2009 est.)

so you don´t have to be math genius to figure out that it was only a matter of time untill china will surpass the US.

Good.

Let the Global Warming bots go after China. I’m certain that they will be given a different reception there than they receive in gullible, indolent Western societies.

Is there no limit to the amount of PRC apologist groupthink, which can take place on this board?

China is replacing America. Technologically. Financially. Taking our jobs, our industry and our influence in the world.

That’s not a good thing. Wake up people.

AMERICA FIRST.

Well for one thing - the GOP could stop shilling for “free trade” which in practice means firing Americans and sending American jobs and skills overseas.

For starters.

The GOP has landed four square and completely now, in the role of being AGAINST AMERICANS.

Against American jobs. Against American strength.

We are enriching and strengthening those who will eventually destroy us.

And the party we most closely believe in - is the party selling America out.

There is NOTHING conservative - or patriotic - about what the GOP is doing, with regards to so-called “free trade”.

Nothing.

That is, China should be the largest car market.

The corollary is that is China is the largest market for everything.

If you are in business, you should be determining how to sell China

China trade drives the world economy

well first i should mention that i´m not an american (live in europe) so i´m not that familar with GOP politics in generall ;-) but anyway...
I think the generell problem stays the same.
China has this incredible huge population and there for it´s only a matter of time untill they will surpass “us” in more and more sectors. unfortunately there is not much anyone can do against this.
But i do agree we should at least stop “helping” them in the name of globalisation.
but at the end the problem stays the same. china only has to wait and there is nothing we can do against this.

China was the world’s largest economy up until the 1840s. It is pretty much a historical anomaly(due to the Industrial revolution) that Western Europe and North America surpassed China in terms of GDP. So now that China has gained Industrial-age technologies, we can assume that they will once again dominate the world economy and technological direction as they have on and off for the last 2000 years.

That’s amazing! Even if 1,000,000,000 people in China died, they’d still have more people than us.

Well if one looks at historical trends, it was only 500-600 years ago that East Asia was the benchmark of human civilization (Chinese/Japanese in terms of technology and economy, Mongols in terms of Military power).

As a corollary, there is no real reason why the West is “entitled” to a first world level of technology or standard of living. The West needs to work hard, innovate, and compete to maintain their standing amongst nations.

There’s a reason they’re taking over: Liberals have invaded everything and we can’t keep up.

That’s one of the problems but the problem started with unions.
