The End of China
« on: October 08, 2022, 01:57:16 PM »
Well known economic and political commentator Peter Zeihan say China will have a population collapse. According to Zeihan the Chinese government has over counted their population by 100 million people.

Meaning China only has about 1.3 billion people now with their population peaking more than a decade ago.

By 2030 there will be more retirees than workers and by 2050 China's population will be below 650 million people.

If true this doesn't mean just a population collapse this will means an economic and military collapse of China.

WestCoast,

China could well have its eye on 'acquiring' eastern parts of Russia, rich in energy and minerals.

But yes, they, like many western nations have problems with an aging, dwindling population.

WestCoast,

There are a number of YT videos predicting that. Of course it wouldn't happen in the next few years but if the Russian military and economy are badly degraded by this war who knows what might happen in 10 years?

If Russia is very badly off in 10 years I'd imagine the Russian Far East would be much worse off. China might see all that land and resources going to waste and decide to take it.

Ship all the Russians living there west if they aren't useful to China and all of a sudden China doubles in size or at least increases in size by 50% and becomes very resource rich.

Too simple, too naive.  Forget it.

You cannot comprehensive China Communist from a viewpoint of free world.

They can require you to pay extra tax in advance if you do not give birth to new baby.  It is one of those that they are planning.
