... (uploaded accidentally) is in the position to decide directions to fulfill certain social, environmental and strategical goals with a horizon of 20 to 50 years ahead. Building a glorious Beijing and Shangai while neglecting the rest of China is a mistake which will be paid in time to come.
2. Commodity prices (oil, sugar, etc.) is not an issue for China in my point of view. So question B scores a mere '2'. The 'First Global Recession' aka 'credit crunch' will inevitably lower the global demand in industrial production for a couple of years sending the commodity prices to average low levels.
The evident danger of subsequent unemployment is something that scores a '5' as a priority. Plant Farming and Reforestation is the only short term answer to that.
3. Tax rate has a definite '5'. The result of high taxation to the lower, lower middle incomes will have a devastating result for the Chinese economy once the 'credit crunch' rides its peak. Still, wealth without culture can be as dangerous as nuclear waste, so wealth shall follow mandatory education.
4. The Chinese reserve in dollars can be a weapon which can easily devastate the U.S. economy. I cannot rate this factor since such a move is pure strategic. If the chinese government would motivate a sell of the 1.5 trillion dollars it possesses it would urge a global 'sell' policy towards the dollar wiping U.S. out of the global map. No one shall play with such dangerous 'toys'.

There's no need to speak in detail about Lehman Bros, Fannie May, Aig etc. Now that we all know that we live on one, finite earth, we breathe the same air and die dug in the same earth, it's time to realize that unless we find peace and establish it, Mars, the Moon, Jupiter and the rest of the heavens might have to wait for ever for the human race to cultivate and inhabit it.
