    According to even the most conservative estimates, China will overtake the United States as the world's largest economy by 2027 and will ascend to the position of world economic leader by 2050. But the full repercussions of China's ascendancy-for itself and the rest of the globe-have been surprisingly little explained or understood.

    What would have made When China Rules the World better?

    Chairman Mao couldn't have written it better himself. This is a fairly informative book, but almost every event Mr. Jacques discusses over the past 150 years is so obviously biased in China's favor, it makes this book hard to accept as credible. The author should have the book published in Mandarin. It would give the Chinese people, who Mr. Jacques says so justly resent us, something to cheer about. This is just one example: Jacques states there are kess than 30 million people living in poverty in China. Yet he doesn't explain that they measure poverty as those living on less than $1.25 per day, and that there are over 468 million living on less than $2.00 per day.

    Do you remember when the average annual return of a ninety-day CD at a bank in October of 1981 was 16.6%? How about the fact that the S&P 500 experienced a minimum annual rate of return of 21% in five consecutive years from 1995 to 1999? And let's not forget how real estate had a record breaking decade in the 2000's with an annual rate of return of 9.27%. Do you ever wonder what the next boom will be? That's exactly what this book is about.

    His secret "next great trend" that you will pay 6.00 to hear is: LIFE INSURANCE :) It may be a good field for employment, but "The Next Great Trend (i.e. the personal computer, the internet, etc...), come on.
