previous This photo taken Wednesday, June 29, 2011 released by China's Xinhua news agency shows the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in Qingdao, east China's Shandong Province. just sayin 6 hours ago This guy tells God he wants a bridge from LA to Hawaii. God says, Do you have any idea how much natural resources it will take to do that? The guy relents and then says he would rather that all men be able to understand women. August Belflower 2 hours ago While China races past the United States we are still caught in chasing sandal wearing cave dwellers in harking deserts around the world wasting billions of dollars which can be put to good use and create jobs here, for us and putting food on the table. Fanfan 2 hours ago It is really pathetic to see in most if not all posts so far people who know so little about the world (China in particular) make groundless judgment. However, we are not the only power and definitely not the power that is rising most rapidly. How many of you have even been to China to get some first hand experience? I used to believe in our media but find it quite unsatisfactory after travelling to China. Do you think China will send Children to work on such projects? India or Bangladesh may have a bigger child labor problem. However, considering the school enrollment numbers, you will see that almost all (of course not 100%) children in China are receiving proper education instead of working in sweat shops. We all agree that the greatest advantage of products made in China is the low cost. Projection is that the minimum wage will grow at more than 10% annually during the next five years. In fact, labor cost in China is significantly higher than in India, Vietnam etc. We must not forget China's low environmental standards and labor protection. In some sense, we are taking advantage of this situation by importing a lot from China. If we do not buy these products from China, we probably end buying from India or Mexico. If we do want to keep these manufacturing jobs at home, we should also see either much higher prices or significant costs to our environment and workers. Products made in China are not particularly known for their quality. And there are plenty of stories of corruption in big projects like this one. Let me remind you of Apple iPad, and many luxury European brands. We used to scorn cars made in Japan and South Korea but we are not any more. I hate communist propaganda (I doubt China is a communist country). But this does not mean we should only learn about China from our own media. I feel I have got a much more balanced view by reading on both sides. A country with a bright future is a country eager to learn from other countries. Just go to our universities and see how many Chinese students are studying advanced science and engineering. Just talk to Chinese colleges students to see how much they know about US and compare their knowledge with that of US college students about China. Our century-long supremacy in the world has blinded us and narrowed our perspectives. Without dramatic change, I see we will be dethroned a few decades down the road. Islandboy 3 hours ago labor is cheap and plentiful in china and big infrastructure projects have proven to be a good way to restart an economy and push a nation forward when the good time comes. GUNNY 3 hours ago If it came with a 30 day warranty I predict it will fall into the sea in 31 days and the customer service people in New Delhi won't be able to do a thing about it. Next 1 This photo taken Wednesday, June 29, 2011 released by China's Xinhua news agency shows the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge in Qingdao, east China's Shandong Province. China opened Thursday, June 30, 2011, the world's longest cross-sea bridge, which is 42 kilometers (26 miles) long and links China's eastern port city of Qingdao to an offshore island, Huangdao.
