Dream for Chinese communist party leaders was and is to uplift quality of life of common person in China. They are very successful at this for last five to six decades. They do not care for crown or otherwise. Also, Chinese work extremely hard and they should and will get what they dream for.

In terms of hubris, the United States seems more arrogant than China. Accross the wars in recent dozens of years after the Second World War, the US almost participated all the wars; as for deficits, there exists no doubt. But the US is still the largest economy. 

Despite the rapid development of economy, tell the truth, China is difficult to become the largest economy or maintain the position, due to the huge population, low technological content.

Export Land Model will Do It

The Export Land Model (ELM) - a mathematical construct by geologist Jeffrey Brown conclusively demonstrates that due to eroding oil exports available due to factors including the "windfall effect", exporters always consume increasing amounts of their own production, and increasing imports by China and India (Chindia, Brown affectionately calls the two) who, being two of the 157 current importers, will in a short 13 years or less if trends continue account for all the oil exports available.  The US imports 9 million barrels of oil per day, exports one of those in refinded products (hence, net exporter), every day, or 3,285,000,000 barrels per year, so that we individuals (if wanted) can fill up our SUVs and head to Walmart to buy a plastic pumpkin.  Chindians, on the other hand, will be able to in large pools put in their smaller wages to purchase fuel for cooking and other vital needs.  It's easy to see that Americans will be unable to outbid China and India for the fungible commodity oil is.

So what are the answers?  War is the first thing that comes to my mind.  But even without war, it's quite understandable when considering the ELM that China will certainly not be 'crowned' or for very long.  Systemic collapse awaits us all.

They should tone down the rhetorics and the constant complaints over Japan's World War II actions. It's been 70+ years!

@Rich: You'd soon see another Foxconn factory being established on the moon soon with people working in the worst conditions possible.

@Hospice: I agree. China also has a lot of trade potential with India which is another giant in the making. But because of the poor relations, that gets affected too.

China neighboring countries don't want to get into dispute with China either as they will all suffer the consequences. China has recenty invited several Japanese politicians to visit Beijing in January. Seems like they are all willing to play nice.

@Rich,

When pigs fly. China's base on the moon or other planets is a shallow dream.
