China 300 billion people, usa less than 400million people it surprises me that we kept up for so long.

laid2rest4183d ago

I think you meant china 1.3billion and usa 307million people.

ChickeyCantor4182d ago

300 billion people; people either live in cities with sky scrapers blacking out the lower sectors. Or they would need to build cities on water.

300 billion = 50 * earths population.

fatstarr4182d ago

lol i was saying it as a joke that china has has a population infinitely greater than ours.

ChickeyCantor4182d ago

Just putting things in perspective.

I'm glad it's 1.3 not 300 xD

BubbleSniper4183d ago

destroy most of our politicians and force big corporations to to finally pay taxes. overhaul the educational system, stop the war on drugs, legalize marijuana, promote farming... ahhh... one can dream............

Despite China's race for global economic domination, it'll still have +70% of its population living in poverty conditions for generations to come.

ChickeyCantor4182d ago

As that may be, I really do not see America's poverty go away for generations to come.

So go china?

ChrisW4181d ago (Edited 4181d ago )

Yeah, but only 13.5% of Americans live in poverty.

**Oh and let me add, that +70% of Chinese is a gestimate based on the GDP per capita. If you were to base it on regional or rural cost of living, it's only 3.7% (or so a Chinese government source says).
