It spans over 60 countries and will cost over a trillion dollars. The plan is to make it easier for the world to trade with China, by funding roads, railways, pipelines, and other infrastructure projects in Asia and Africa. China is loaning trillions of dollars to any country that's willing to participate and it's been a big hit with the less democratic countries in the region. This makes the BRI a risky plan as well. But China is pushing forward because its goals are not strictly economic, they're also geopolitical. To truly understand the international conflicts and trends shaping our world you need a big-picture view.

What it takes to be a super power

You need to be careful of what you let in your country, the very things you think would be useful could later put you in a pit. There are good and bad in every country but china isnt a good friend politically speaking. I think we all need to watch our backs.

Well, if you think someone lend you money to ask you to do your own business is very bad, then you are with USA government. USA Govt policy is American First. why??? any logical behind that? All they do is : if USA can not be richer and better, then they stop others to be richer and better.
we Indians no there rules we have no debate on them the rest are slaves to them hehe
glowingnut (23 hours ago)
this is quite normal for a huge economy to find a way out for its massive production capacity, UK used guns and battleships, US used dollars and guns, why would someone talk trash on china's much more friendly move? i guess it is perhaps a lack of knowledge of history. go find a book and do some research on what the former super power UK and present super power US were doing when they were establishing their global power status. as for the debt trap BS, china is not forcing any country to join. if you chose to join, you pay for what you get. I don't see any problem in that and this is probably the essential norm of any country with a well-established law system, like most developed countries in the world.

Are we just going to forget that the US and China are each other’s most important trade partners? The reason China has grown so much is because of US investment and trade in the nation. They may pretend to not like each other but the truth is that they mutually benefit from each other.

China operates predatory lending to gain financial control over countries when they can't afford to pay them back, using this leverage to gain the ability to build this infrastructure but do we really believe it just about trade? America is cut off from a lot of the world by sea, yet it still became the dominant power.

@vaibhav satpute BTW, wealth is not helping a person escape from justice in China, but it could be in US or western. So if you are living in US, i bless u to be a successful businessman, but if you are living in china, i bless you to be a moral citizen, no matter how successful you were.
Chen Jeff (5 days ago)
@vaibhav satpute ...Pls read more books we are not living in ancient world, people granted the land and wealth for generations and generations. Wealth should be like a water, flowing in the economical system, not collected by a person or family. Tell me why the 1% wealth Americans paying less tax like Trump or Bezos. And why the people in the middle class feels less security on their financial situation? why people believe they enjoy less even their payroll get much higher? Financial system collapse because the problematic financial system. it has happened over and over in the history and we have to solve the problem how to let the wealth refresh ot be free from someone in power. Yea watch your cash flow not financial statement.
vaibhav satpute (5 days ago)
@Chen Jeff nobody can buy yhe the land in china, you can only get the land for 70years. but people should be able to atleast rent the house..the wealth inquality is not a good thing for any nation.

.... Are u saying why people working so hard in NY but cant even buy a house in DT????? Come on, you are not ignorant. young and low-income people need to rent a house in the city, but they also can buy a house in another small city. It's an option and it also call marketing economic.

Incompetent politicians make problem bigger while spending time. Please do unification quickly! When is Korea unification ? 2019.7.15 - I am Zhang Fei.

I’m from Malaysia. China has traded with Malaysia for 2000 years. In those years, they have been world’s biggest power many times. Never once they sent troops to this region. In 16th, 17th, 18th centuries, the Portuguese, Dutch and British came, we were colonized by each. The presence of China’s power is welcomed in this region. It provides economic benefits. It also enrich cultural experience in the region. We are not afraid of China being powerful in the region, we welcome the rise of China. China don't export ideology, they don't export chaos.

Germany, the USA, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan ROC all invested heavily in China and relocated many factories there in the 1990s. China's economy grew tremendously. How was this not a "win-win"? Now China is playing the victim card and claiming that only it can help to develop other countries economies.
C brtdgh (10 days ago)
India is to China as China is to the US, another rising superpower. Before the British left India, India could have left united and instead was split in two. Pakistan is to India as Taiwan is to China. We can see that China is much more ruthless in dealing with its future opponent than the US was in dealing with China, the US actively aided China's rise until recently and didn't aid Taiwan too much.

C brtdgh erm, you forget about Korean War, Vietnam war, Cold War, USA funding separatists in Tibet(Dalai lama and civil war), and xinjiang separatists(Uyghurs etc who then go to Syria and fight Assad and USA funds them even though they are Isis and al Qaeda), USA has contained China and has military bases all surrounding China and even in Afghanistan, and 30,000 troops in Japan, another 30,000 in South Korea, and sails its carriers just off Chinese coast and flies it's drones and spies on China daily? MacArthur wanted to nuke China even, but China was not scared of nuclear USA and even attacked them when they had nothing. USA did everything it could have. China not only fought USA off, but will win the war in the long run without even firing another bullet. This is art of war vs art of the deal. Lol.

My country lacks the amount of money and government flexibility that China has in abundance, so we sit there in the sidelines. However, I respect and appreciate India not being a part of China. The reasons are entirely subjective. We don't care whether the Debt Trap Diplomacy concept is used by china or not, that's for BRI affiliated countries to worry about. Maybe there isn't any debt trap, maybe China's doing all this for the betterment of humanity and a goodwill gesture, we don't really care. We stay away from BRI due to us not wanting to be indebted to an equally old, rich and vibrant civilisation we consider as potential rivals.
Marione Molina (13 days ago)
The Chinese taking all the advantage to take all they want just like doing those ports. It's has a big feedback with the Chinese because if the country didn't pay the loan they will always gonna take something in your country. Wise strategy and still going on. See the point that you should think wisely before dealing with China.
