27. I would not say that China is not more creative.

The absolute dominate us in “green” products and extraction of “natural” chemicals. I know because I need those items for my company, it comes down to China or India, I can’t find USA companies that manufacture here, the ones that I do find imports from China and wholesale here.

China is surpassing us in the hard sciences, Chemistry, Physics, Medical research, engineered materials. Name any hard science and they have surpassed us. We simply are not getting enough USA born hard science trained young people and the ones that graduate are not paid remotely what they should be paid. Once the hard scientists that are in their fifties and sixties now die off or retire, the dominance that China has built up is going to hit us like a speeding freight train.

I have believe for a while that we are really lucky that China is doing a relatively poor job of raising the living standards of all of it’s citizens, if it gets around to seriously doing that, we are done forever as the world’s premiere economic power. If you look at when the USA became great, it was the period from the end of the Civil War until the start of World War I, doing that time the USA was focused on raising the living standards of citizens (except from my race, African Americans, our people made big, not recognized or rewarded contributions), by raising those living standards, the USA powerfully increased it’s gross wealth.
