The middle class of China

I have high hopes for the people of China. My experience with Chinese people has been pleasant, I greatly enjoy Chinese Cuisine. The Chinese have a large appetite for gambling as many Americans do...so we have that in common...USA has Las Vegas where as China has Macau.

Now interestingly enough, numbers wise China actually has a larger middle class then the USA...of course this is due to China's 1.3 billion + population compared to the USA's 320 million. Percentage wise, the US still has a larger middle class when compared to China.

Lets hope that the future includes the US and China growing closer together as well as the growth of the middle class in both China and the USA. A stronger China/USA=a better world.

You are remarkably imprecise
  • There is no such thing as Chinese Cuisine. Each region of China has its own distinctive cuisine. What you eat in the USA is usually a westernised version of South Chinese cooking, made blander for the American palate and with more salt. The Chinese have adapted their cooking to suit the country in which they run an eatery. For example Chop Suey and Chow Mein were both invented in California when in the 1920s the local Chinese realised that they could even sell the left overs to the gullible San Francisans. Much the same applies to Indian food (which overseas is mainly Bengali with a number of dishes invented in Birmingham and Glasgow.
  • Middle Class is also meaningless. What the USA defines as middle class is very different as what for example Britain defines as Middle Class and I doubt that the Chinese in mainland China actually recognise the term. What GS define as Middle Class are merely city dwellers not primarily engaged in manual labour. China is building the equivalent of the Japanese class of Salarymen but they have a way to go yet.
