China overtakes Japan as No.2 economy: FX chief

• Reuters

China has overtaken Japan to become the world's second-largest economy, the fruit of three decades of rapid growth that has lifted hundreds of millions of people out of poverty.

Depending on how fast its exchange rate rises, China is on course to overtake the United States and vault into the No.1 spot sometime around 2025, according to projections by the World Bank, Goldman Sachs and others.

The "people" out of poverty???

The Chinese "people" own nothing.  The Chinese government owns all and allows the people to use the resources as it sees fit.  There are no poorer people than those under statist regimes.

 Yeah, not to mention that it's the biggest creditor to the US.  Although I'm not sure that holding such a "privilege" is a great thing.
