in the u.s. embassy this latest is coming while tensions continue to rise too over the u.s. military buildup in the pacific. as china's rampant economic growth and political influence continues next week take a look at how big a challenge this is for the rest of the world is the subject of our interview with john nice names but he's an academic an expert on the country he's here right now. well. john i say thank you very much for being with us today it's a pleasure sir thank you for having me to china has been a mystery for scholars throughout centuries why is it such a challenge for thinkers these days up till these days everything is revealed now
it's now it's a good challenge they were still in charge and so i was still in charge well. you know first thousands of years there was such an insulated isolated place that others didn't come in and it's only been relatively in recent years that a lot of people tried to i myself have been going there for forty four years since nine hundred sixty seven but that's new for westerners to spend so much time there were two did before but now they're all over the place although i think the western report is not very good about china but there are a lot of people there and my wife and i have been. going there for the last ten years and but it's still kind of a mystery it's because of their language it's because it's a country now with no ideology and suddenly said david history was the religion of china and i think that's true in a sense that that's the only thing that really holds everything together now and not the only thing but you know. they have that kind of reverence for their history
which they know so well through through all of the dynasties and so on and which the west has a was a zero information about and that's why it's a big mystery you touched upon the ideology and the side of that china has no ideology but how good is it to be a country without an ideology when you're striving to be a superpower isn't just enough to. certain send a message only about economic prosperity without any other ideology well there's some concern about that but china didn't have an ideology before communism really. they've been arrayed confucius and but that's that's the only religion it's kind of a code of living so there are people searching in different directions the united states for example doesn't have a ideology i mean the real law i mean you know there's the american dream and so on but you know the people have all kinds of ideologies all kinds of religious face
and so and they're all over the place and i guess the only real hold everyone together is the. idea that there's freedom in the united states and you can make yourself or you can and so forth and a little bit is is involved now in china to was not a question everyone asks themselves is china socialism or is it a current elisabetta they're not even talking in terms of ideology but in terms of regime it's not socialism but it's socialism and chinese characters now if you can figure out what that means that would be that would help a lot because no one knows what it means it's not a socialist country it's not a communist country but you know here we're sitting in russia i think about this at the end of the last century two great countries gave up communism russia and china and what's happened china is number number two in the world economically russia's will stuck in the mud by day and energy too much energy in their economy and too
too little energy in the people to be there they'd like way behind of these two countries to gave up congress a very interesting study i don't think it's been done but it's certainly an interesting question. how did china do it and why is russia couldn't do it why do russia's not done that so to speak but we just brought up an interesting point as for the bric countries killed it. kept up with china's growth can that be a problem for poor countries that china is developing so rapidly let's put this in context china has gone from a hundred forty seventh in the world to number two in the economy the role in the last thirty three years but us economy is still four times spigot us economy is way up here and there clustered together are china germany and japan way down here and in. only one fourth or one third the size of the u.s. so the u.s.
only has to get a couple of percentage points or three percentage for that in china you can still call it eight or nine which are probably won't but for for for for it to be a long time arithmetic way you can figure it out before china catches up if it ever does you know regardless all the credit with china does face some major problems like gender inequality income inequality corruption and by mental issues could that undermine the growth well you know all of these problems and these these are the problems of china are talked about and written about in newspapers and magazines and speeches all over china all the time this is totally open china says that their biggest problem is the growing inequality the growing income gap between urban and rural. and the answer your question is no because it's so so openly talked about and we monitor it with our institute in india and we monitor all of the provinces
in the newspapers and on the provinces the two biggest issues that are in the story of pages and the news pages are corruption and the environment and dealing dealing with both of those these are issues that are not hidden these are the most talked about face in china and the leadership the broad china this. or is there leadership that you have to imagine here and you can continue to deal with those problems and can. do a little better job as it goes along now let's talk and paralyse as china is slowly growing ties with weaker asia and african countries the kind of aid the chinese are giving to africa and to some other countries differs very greatly from what the west when the west was giving it was it was a government to government you know who knows what happened in the money the
chinese make a deal they say here's the deal we will build you an airport we will be jewish sports stadiums and so forth and you agree to sell us or oil and energy we need at market price. and it's the africans many africans describe it as a win win. range meant versus what the west has been doing with their aid programs all these years so china is absolutely connected with africa as well as as well as asia because of how smart they've been in the arrangements they have to to create win win situations for those countries so its economy only and not their will to evolve into or encourage states to build an empire you know the china china it's never been. acquisitional country to begin with but they're making their arrangements and their deals not to acquire anyone or to build an empire but to
it's mostly on an economic basis to to to assure themselves of the resources that they need for the rapid growth they are experiencing and they are in our view will continue to experience so here's what also many people think that with this economic and military prowess china is poised to become the center of the new mobile. pollo world it's an elephant lot of. all the world and by the way there they have been building their military but they still you know the u.s. has a military that is equal to all the other militaries of the world put together and i've heard of we've heard a lot of talk about multi i over world but last century it was the soviet union and us this century to be very simple minded about this century is the us and china that bipolar that world is going to be dominated by the bipolar connection of
china and the u.s. and people will make countries will make decisions and calibrate their their actions against what they perceive will be the response of the u.s. and or china that there will be a bipolar world replace thing they soviet union the u.s. but on a very different basis so not for not we guess a cold war but sort of a cold war but with the soviet union on an ideological basis with china on economic what do you think china strategies in relations to russia china as it were here's the i'll summarize their strategy russia is the biggest producer of oil in the world china is the biggest consumer consumer of energy in the world that that dictates the strategy john i speak with you very much for this interview thank you very much.
