PERSONAL NOTE: A British diplomat predicts China will take over the world in the next 40 years…others are predicting sooner than later! I had the privilege to be invited as a visiting professor in China for 7 years 2008 to 2014 and wrote a book THIS IS CHINA about it. See China for yourself…imagine in less than the past 40 years, China is able to compete with USA now…ranked #2 in the world today!
