It's sort of in a golden age if you're talking industry and business. In the last twenty or so years, China went from being a largely agrarian and third-rate economy to the second largest economy in the world, surpassing Japan with only the US at the top. Back in the 80s and 90s, many thought of China as little more than a communist backwater where cheap shirts were made. Now they're where many of the world's electronics are manufactured with cities like Shanghai looking like New York from a distance. But whether it can sustain that is another argument -- some think that it's a bubble rife with corruption and political issues. But others are convinced that China's growth, while it might have bumps along the way, is going to continue at a steady pace.
I believe China's at its golden age XP
Oh ok but I'm not only talking about business and industry, I'm talking like basically everything about it. Like its economy, government, even like art and intellectual innovations. @Captain_Page_Turner
And I'm still not sure!! Haha @Silverknight01
With everything else, I'd find it harder to argue that it's in the kind of Golden Age that sees improvements across the board in every field. So if you're looking for something to fit that definition in a strict sense, I'd say no. China's growth is pretty amazing, but it comes at the cost of those that can't make the most of it. Sure, there are more cars and opportunities for financial growth, but there are also a lot of underlying issues. The gap between rich and poor is accelerating, the country's political power remains in the grip of a select few (and the system is rife with corruption though they say they are trying to fight it), their human rights record is terrible, and they're also struggling with severe environmental issues (tons of the world's discarded electronics end up over there for either recycling or in one of the villages-turned-landfills).
Wow thanks i guess China really isn't in it's Golden Age after all. What country/society do you think could possibly be in it's Golden Age? My first choice was Canada, but i wasn't too sure. @Captain_Page_Turner
hmm... idk then :P
Ha me either at least my essays not due till Monday tho @Silverknight01
well Frances interest rate is at 15% right now which is the best in the world
while the U.S.A'S is at -.6% lol go america
Lol yes that's true but i mean like all aspects of a country that would make it appear to be in its Golden Age... But interests rates are important too ha
that would be a very diverse thing to say though because no country is truly in the golden age every country has its own problems along with good things
Yes that's why it is so hard for me to pick a country.... I'm just looking for a country with more good than bad
well in Canada no one locks their doors because they are not insane like us americans
Haha that's why I was going to choose Canada because you never hear anything bad happen there on the news or anything
But that doesn't necessarily mean it's in its Golden Age
true I guess id have to do a little research
Yeah me too
If you can support an argument for Canada, that could be an interesting choice. Picking one is tough today because of the global recession -- every country was hit by it to some degree. For Canada, though, it's like the neighbor in the north that no one doesn't like and they're doing okay. There are also a few other countries that might be considered in the same vein, such as Norway or Australia. It's just up to you as to why you think the country you pick is the one that works -- there's no real right or wrong answer here, I think.
Ok thank you!
Guess what!!! I got an A on my essay!!!!! I ended up choosing Canada and my teacher told me it was one of the best essays turned in this semester!!! Thanks for your help guys :) @Captain_Page_Turner @Silverknight01 @llkramer
that's awesome very good job :)
yay! -hi fives-
