It is wrong to idealize the Chinese success, let alone fear Chinese economic dominance in the future. It is not coming, Chairman of Glencore International corp., Simon Murray, told RT.
“China on a comparison basis is certainly doing better than anywhere else but whether it is going to lead the world forever and ever I do not think so,” said Murray, who spent most of his career in China.
Secret of China’s success is nothing unique: the country is just coming through the cycles Europe has long passed in the previous eras, he noted.
“China is a manufacturing country … Manufacturing is what really leads the prosperity and the western world has swung away from manufacturing into service industries,” Murray said. He added that after China passes its equivalent of industrial revolution it might move its factories offshore just like the West now.
