China Star rising

Following on from my last blog, I take comfort in the news that George Soros, the internationally famous financier told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme that China had a “huge advantage” over international competitors because it can control the value of its currency.
In an article in the Daily Telegraph by Rupert Neate he quotes Soros as saying to the Financial Times:  “Whether it realizes it or not, China has emerged as a leader of the world.

See article at:

The point I am trying to make is that the Chinese leadership believes that by primarily focussing on the Country's interest's, eventually the benefits of a strong Nation will pass down to all the people. I tend to agree.
In the Western Democracies, the leaders, with an eye on the next elections, are always having to heed, not only what their allied Country's say or what the lobbyists for various commercial and other groups want, but they also have to take notice of what their electorate at large wants. Surely, it's too much. Ask any Prime Minister and I'm sure they'll say that it's almost impossible to juggle the needs of all these factions. How much better it must surely be to concentrate on the one objective; securing the best advantages (and this could include collaboration) for the Country irrespective of the wishes of all the other pressure groups. If the country remains focussed and strong, then all the people will ultimately, despite, (historically speaking,) short term hardships, be the beneficionaries.
