Eye-popping economic growth rates notwithstanding, China's reputation for economic invincibility has taken a serious knock in recent weeks. The media barely noticed when Chinese-made drugs contaminated with diethylene glycol led to the deaths of dozens of people in Panama last year.

    Are you saying that the West is jerking off, Squids?

    Trust not the Dragon, for his deception knows no bounds, and he is a hungry serpent, full of evil intentions.

  • chinas economy is the worst of both worlds;
    weak or non-existant rule of law which brings robust banking regulation, product standards (UL, CSA sound familiar???) copyright protection and labor laws.

    communist china doesnt have these. its an ad hoc thing, everything depends on the whim of the ruling elite at the time.

  • Canada and USA are just as corrupt
    Every nation is corrupt, power corrupts us all

    I live in Canada so I can say what I say on first hand experience. The rich will always screw over the poor. It is no different in any country.

    Who created this lifestyle...this USA. Now everyone in the world wants this lifestyle = the destruction of mankind.

    Now who`s to blame USA or China...the USA is the real TYRANT
