If you are under the age of 50 you should be concerned about China from an economic and global power standpoint. Some believe China is seeking peace with the rest of the world. Based on their long history, I am not convinced. For China long term is hundreds of years and for the United States it is the next election cycle. China's focus is always on the long term. Much of this post is drawn from a book, On China , written by Henry Kissinger, the Secretary of State under President Nixon and a research paper of the National Intelligence Council titled Global Trends 2030: Alternative Worlds . Whether the future will prove China's desire for peaceful co-existence depends on whether its middle class will sufficiently benefit from economic growth and not allow their leadership to throw it away by creating enemies with trading partners. This requires the country becoming more democratic and less inclined to be a threat to the remainder of the world. The jury is still looking
