Asia Is Next Economic Superpower ?

(104 posts)

    The former British colony is expected to employ close to 248,000 financial services workers by 2015, compared to 237,000 in London, representing a massive shift in the balance of power between Hong Kong and its former colonial master.

    As recently as five years ago, London finance workers outnumbered their Hong Kong counterparts more than two-to-one, demonstrating the remarkable turnaround in fortunes in the wake of the financial crisis, according to figures from the Centre for Economics and Business Research.

    London this year lost its crown as the world’s largest financial centre to New York, however its reign will be short with Hong Kong expected to overtake its US rival by 2016.

    CEBR said London is losing its dominance due to “short-sighted over-regulation, penal taxation and banker bashing” as well as the “inevitable” economic shift to the east.

    Asia is growing fast and countries like China and India are set to become economic powers of the region in the next 20 years.

    I was in Hong Kong last year and was very impressed to see financial and economic prosperity of Hong Kong people.

    Economies with real and tangible growth would sustain, whereas those far from fundamentals and based on debt/money creation may need a recheck.

    Bharat and China have conceived tremendous progress in the fields of education, economics, tehnology and defense. Pakistan was left behind even the poorest countries of Asia despite its tremendous potential.

    You are right!

    Despite Pakistan' potential, she is lagging behind in almost every walk of life. I hold anti-education backward mindset, religious extremism, taliban terrorism, political corruption, army's involvement in politics, lack of transparency, lack of economic policies, lack of political leadership and lack of future vision responsible for this plight of today's Pakistan.

    Both neighboring countries China and India are making rapid and remarkable economic progress and Pakistani nation is wasting valuable time.

    Clowns know fully well that Pakistan has been running under the corrupt to the core secular leadership of God Bless America politicians and military brass since its inception. Their sinister agenda is to keep the nation perpetually backward. As part of the God Bless America strategy they wantonly blame religion to hide their true motives. As long as that bait is delivered and readily consumed nothing good will ever come out.

    United States of America, just, on the bases of her Agricultural Production, would stay as the Economic Super Power in the World.

    U.S.A. is capable to feed 2/3 of the World population with Wheat, Corn, Potato and Soybean.

    Courtiers like China and India, having a big population, would always stay dependent upon America to feed their population.

    Bogus, can you show the numbers that china and india are dependent on food items from USA, you have left with very little brain cells and are making outrageous claims that have no base. Shame on you. In fact china and india are producing their own food and china with one child policy has been able to control its population.

    Population is an asset if trained and used properly.

    High population would also mean bigger customer base.

    And now here is a "luch tal" news.

    Workers across the European Union have staged a series of protests and strikes against rising unemployment and austerity measures.

    General strikes in Spain and Portugal halted transport and closed businesses and schools. Police and protesters clashed in several Spanish cities.

    Global scenario is rapidly changing. Asia in general and China in particular, has played very well. China has taken overspend money of west (china's trade surplus or US trade deficit) and built excellent airports, highway & railway networks, big factories and other infrastructure.

    China's low cost manufacturing put a lot of West 'out of business'. China has more than 3 trillions USD reserve (significant value in US Treasuries). IF (big IF) China 'WISH', it could control US bond markets, force US to raise interest rates and crash the US dollar/ecomomy.

    China no more need printed paper (currency) from the West. China need to increase its internal trade, as well as trade directly with other resource rich nations.

    A lot of people might not see it but Asia with its huge population with their low level of debts (demand side of economy) and efficient manufacturing base (supply side of economy) is fast becoming next economic superpower.

    @Sheikh Shab
    Now an eye opener for you, and reality gona hit you hard

    China is dependent on US food you link does not prove that. China mostly export raw materiel from US. Actually US is dependent on china. US import from china is above 300 billion and all the US companies import from a toy to apple IPAD from china. Even us olympics cloths and uniforms were made in china in 2012. If china throw out its dollars reserve in international market the us dollar would have worth that is less than afghan currency. Us owe trillions of dollar to china. Economically US is like pakistan to china.
    Let me tell you US is like beggar to china so do act like one.

    You should get Nobel Prize for this statement "Economically US is like Pakistan to china". World Bank should offer you a position of their President or you could be made Pakistan’s Economy Minister.

    US haters like you live in a constant America phobia disorder and for you there is no cure. No doctor can cure your phobia disorder. May God bless you with long, healthy, phobia-free life. With this masterpiece information, there should be long queues outside every Chinese embassy in the world to get Chinese visa. I am sure right now you too are lining up outside Chinese embassy in Islamabad to get China's visa.

    Good Luck on your china immigration but bear in mind Chinese workers get 50 cents per hour for a 12 hour shift, no holidays, no sick leave, and no medical insurance. It will take Chinese society 100 years to reach to today’s American society’s standard of living.

    I am NOT a China hater, I have couple of Chinese American friends and I wish Chinese economy all the best with their rapid and remarkable progress.

    Forget China buddy!

    Once progressive Talibani Islam takes over Pakistan, which should be any day now, it will become the envy of the world, just like Swat was the shining example of how super awesome things got to be during the glorious emirate of taliban in that city. But the hanood o yahood o nasaara and their korhi drones just couldn't stomach seeing a successful Islamic emirate in full swing running at a steady 30 BPS (beheadings per second)

    When will us Pakistanis realize what's really good for us? Sigh.

    The greatest Korh on human race has undoubtedly been the religion, especially the Abrahimic religions.
    Alexandria in Egypt (named after Alexander) was center of intellectual thought before Christ.
    The millions of books in the greatest library of its time were burnt by the drooling idiots of Christianity.

    The very idea of racism was invented by the Hebrews to denigrate the enemy.

    اگر آپ کو یاد ہو تو وائٹ ہاؤس کی ایک میٹنگ میں براک اوباما نے ایپل کمپنی کے اس وقت کے چیف ایگزیکیٹو اِسٹیو جابز سے پوچھا تھا کہ کیا آئی فون کو اسمبل کرنے کے عمل کو چائنا کے بجائے امیریکہ لایا جاسکتا ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔
    اکثر لوگ اس مغالطہ کا شکار ہوتے ہیں کہ اگر آئی فون کو چائنا کے بجائے امیریکہ میں اسمبل کیا جائے گا تو یہ امیریکہ کی معیشت کیلئے بہت زیادہ فائدہ مند چیز ہوگی یا چائنا کا اپنی لیبر فورس کے ذریعے آئی فون یا آئی پیڈ اسمبل کرنے سے چائنا کی معیشت کو کتنا فائدہ ہورہا ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔ جبکہ میں نہیں سمجھتا کہ ایسی بات ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔ حیران کن بات تو یہ ہے کہ ایپل کمپنی کی مصنوعات بنانے والی کمپنی، فاکس کون، چائنا کے بجائے تائیوان کی ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔
    لوگ یہ نہیں سمجھتے کہ چائنا کی لیبر مصنوعات کی ویلیو میں بہت کم اضافہ کرتی ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔ ہاں یہ ضرور ہے کہ چائنا کی انتہائی سستی مصنوعات کی وجہ سے نان چائنا کی مصنوعات کو بہت مشکل کا سامنا ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔

    یونیورسٹی آف کیلیفورنیا کی ایک اسٹڈی کے مطابق چائنا کی لیبر کے ذریعے آئی فون یا آئی پیڈ کی ویلیو میں دس یا دس سے کم ڈالر کا اضافہ ہوتا ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔ جبکہ اسی آئی پیڈ کی ویلیو میں امیریکن لیبر کم و بیش ایک سو ساٹھ ڈالر کا اضافہ کرتی ہے جبکہ آئی فون کی ویلیو میں امیریکن لیبر کا کردار کہیں زیادہ ہے۔۔۔۔۔۔

    Asia-Pacific To Launch Talks On Giant Free Trade Zone - AFP

    PHNOM PENH — Southeast Asian nations will launch talks this week for a giant free trade pact with China, Japan, India and other neighbours aimed at easing the region's reliance on the struggling West.

    The planned zone would would span across 16 countries of the Asia-Pacific that currently account for a third of global trade and economic output, making it the biggest free trade area outside the World Trade Organization.

    Rajiv Biswas, Asia-Pacific chief economist at IHS Global Insight, described the initiative as "strategically very important to the Asia-Pacific as it would help offset weaknesses in the United States and the European Union".

    Japan has been one of the largest economies of Asia since a long time. Bharat and China have also grown up as big economies. Bharat is the 14th and China is the 2nd. largest economies of the world. Malaysia is also a healthy and growing economy.
