    Meh. Still not scared. America has video gamers on the same level as South Park WoW parody + unmanned kill-drones. The next world war winner will be the first to militarize outer-space enough and whoever has the best information control. 100,000 missles in space could beat any combo of airstrips and aircraft.

    China doesn't care about the rest of the world. It'll have to fundamentally change to become a world-power.

    I don't think anyone is realizing that this is just based on the number of published scientific research papers.

    The quantity - not quality - is being measured and counted.

    So it really should read "China will write more research papers than the US by the year 2013" - if they wrote it that way then no one would have noticed or given a crap.

    Chinese entitlements??? Well, to begin with, China remains communist, by definition the whole system is one big entitlement. Of course, we know that China has had numerous reforms of its social programs, but they have not stripped things away anywhere near the level of crude safety that is the US. Moreover, they are increasing social spending. Sorry, you can't attribute China's ability to spend money on itself on its lack of social spending.

    Re: China 'to overtake US on science' in two years

    I can kinda believe this. The sad thing is that in the US we are seeing less and less people go to college and obtain graduate degrees. For an economy and nation to technologically advance education must also advance. We have high high school drop out rates, low college graduation rates, and lower grad school rates. I would say the problem largely lies in culture and many individuals who are lazy/not driven, education is also very expensive and is increasing in price very rapidly (this may be the largest problem when it comes to college attendance). It also lies with a lack of spending when it comes to college and inefficient spending when it comes to public education. America is in serious need of education reform.

    Re: China 'to overtake US on science' in two years

    A college education should be free to anyone who wants it. Even if we lost lots of money on idiots trying to get a degree beyond their capacity to attain, I think we'd still come out ahead. Making people less stupid by itself would be worth it, even if we didn't recoup the tax money from more higher paying jobs and new businesses.

    I've always thought that the US is completely ****ing retarded for not throwing at education every last penny would could beg, borrow or steal. I blame our short-sighted plutocrats for selling out the future for short-term profits.

    Re: China 'to overtake US on science' in two years

    One problem with this country is that so many people think that education spending makes people smarter. If that were true, we'd be topping the world education rankings. After all, we spend more on education than almost every other country.

    Instead of preparing students to ace those sorts of tests, we have incessent whining about how unfair they are worry that they might be boring our students. While students in poorer nations spend 60% of the day working on math and reading from 15 year old textbooks, we provide fifth graders with laptops so that they can play educational video games and chat with their "e-pals." While students in other countries are taught the value of hard work, we teach our children the value of an inflated ego and a bloated sense of self worth. When their students perform poorly, their parents push them to work harder. When our students perform poorly, we buy new textbooks, blame the school system, or concede that the student is just too bright and is bored with regular schoolwork.
