I've been living in China for almost 9 months now. I will likely come back for another year after December. I enjoy the financial opportunities, the kindness of most of the people here, learning the language and experiencing another culture. There is a lot of money in China, and I agree with many of the predictions that view China as the next biggest economy in 2017. For this reason and many others, I believe it will be beneficial to know the Chinese language and culture. Still, I am a bit sad to see the once "untouchable" America losing ground in the world economy.
In 10 years, will the USA still be the most powerful country in the world?
